"It's simple but it's one of those tweaks that you never knew you needed until you had it." Or had it waaaay back when Android Ice Cream was launched. I miss so many things about my Android phones, can't wait till the software is more or less the same between all OS's, like being able to get into any car and drive within seconds.

In case anybody is wondering, the name refers to Jelly Bean, a recent Android version. This article doesn't seem to mention the Android inspiration at all.

This makes we want to jailbreak, actually. Thanks for the tip. Anyone know if there's a tweak to bypass the PIN requirement enforced by Exchange?

Works well, just don't add the biteSMS app to it. It will crash every time. Instead, just add the stock Messages app, and it'll open biteSMS instead.
