Add more functionality to the stock Messages app with SMS+ [jailbreak]

SMS+ was just made available in Cydia for jailbroken devices and adds a whole lot of functionality to the stock Messages app. A lot of people may argue that apps like BiteSMS already do all that SMS+ does. If you're someone who prefers the stock messages app, this may be a better choice for you. The price tag is also a bit more manageable as it's priced at only $1.99.

Once installed, you can pop into settings and customize what options you'd like to add. There's no new icon like there is with Bite. This app integrates tightly with the default Messages app.

SMS+ includes the following features and then some -

  • Quick reply (Activator gestures can also be configured)
  • Text to speech
  • Read later
  • Status bar notifications
  • Timestamps for every message
  • Mark all as read
  • Delete all
  • Pull to sort (sort by date or by sender)

It's currently available in Cydia for $1.99.

[$1.99 - Cydia Search Link]

Add more functionality to the stock Messages app with SMS+ [jailbreak]


ooo. i like that. i wonder if the developer is working on an iOS version, like BiteSMS is doing. This would be nice to have integrated into the Notifications Center.

I bought it, installed. And am finding a few bugs. It seems to happen to when have your messaging app open after your screen is locked. When receiving a text, and pressing reply, it locks up and a hard reset is required. Anybody else having this issue? (I do not have any other messaging mods installed)

What is the app or tool u use to edit out (or blur out) the phone number of your contact in your posted pics? I've seen it used before but was wondering what it is. Thanks.

I'm a fan of Filippo's tweaks and admire how quickly he can produce them, but I fall into the Bite camp on this one—SMS+ kind of seems like a thrown together Bite Lite. That said, for a casual user the price is certainly a lot better; I just prefer the extra polish, features, and updates of Bite.
One question I can't seem to find an answer to: can you MMS from the Quick Compose window? That remains a huge gap for Bite.

I think this should work for iPods to because I have one and it wont let me download that app it says this iPod is enable for security reasons that's just missed up and o can't get it to work
