biteSMS is by far one of the most popular jailbreak tweaks, with a ton of people using it for mainly features that include Quick Reply, and Quick Compose. It is a full featured Messages-replacement application that has been around for a while, and has seen fairly regular updates. With the new evasi0n7 jailbreak out, and iOS 7 users getting a new Cydia to match the feel of the newest operating system, tweaks and apps are slowly beginning to get updated as well.
Keep in mind, this version of biteSMS (8.0.1) is still in beta, so don’t expect it to be perfect at first. Many that have tried it out note that there are still plenty of bugs to be found, but that’s why it’s a beta. These will be fixed with time and before the official release, presumably. Something new also noticed with this version of biteSMS is that it will completely replace the Messages application that Apple has built in to iOS, something it used to not do. Before, you used to have 2 messages apps: biteSMS and Messages. Now, no need to worry about hiding Messages, because biteSMS does that for you.
Interested in trying out biteSMS beta? You can do so by simply adding a repo to Cydia. For those that are new to jailbreaking, it’s easy. Open Cydia, go to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add and type in test-cydia.bitesms.com. After that, go into the repo and you should see the 8.0.1 version of biteSMS waiting to be installed. It’s currently free and has ads inside, so if you want to try it out before the full version comes along now is a great chance.
