iOS 8's Quick Reply feature is great and all, but it is still limited in a lot of ways. For one you can't use it to send a message from anywhere in iOS. With BiteSMS now defunct, Couria has just been updated to fill that gap on jailbroken devices running the latest iOS 8.4.
BiteSMS, the popular jailbreak app that displaces the stock iOS Messages with its much-celebrated, feature-rich take on messaging functionality, has finally shaken off the beta label, and the public release of BiteSMS 8 is upon us.
The popular BiteSMS app has just been updated with full support for iPhone 5s. The BiteSMS team have been pushing out builds thick and fast over the festive season. In the last eleven days there has been a total of six releases to the BiteSMS test repository, with each one completing a small part of the puzzle that will ultimately involve a release of stable version of BiteSMS that supports the latest firmware as well as modern iPhones with 64-bit processors.
The relatively rushed nature of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak means that certain fundamental aspects such as Cydia and MobileSubstrate had been relegated to the background in favor of the release. Jay Freeman and his willing helpers have managed to get Cydia updated for iOS 7, but as we wait for a MobileSubstrate announcement, the BiteSMS team has made an announcement of their own.
Although Cydia is rammed to the rafters with packages, apps and extensions, the majority of us still have our favorite tweaks that we always go for every time we jailbreak our devices. Personally speaking I am a long time jailbreaker and over the years have tried out more packages than I care to remember. In fact, I dread to think how much money I have spent on the Cydia store in the pursuit of find those perfect tweaks that perfectly compliment my iOS experience.
Many iPhone users are familiar with BiteSMS, a replacement for iOS' built-in SMS app with many extra features. If you've jailbroken your iPhone with JailbreakMe 3.0, you're probably aware that this app was broken on devices that were jailbroken using the tool, and actually had the capability to render those useless, until now. BiteSMS 5.5 Beta 1, which has now reached Cydia, is said to work on devices jailbroken with JailbreakMe 3.0 perfectly.
