Seven months ago, we showed you a great jailbreak tweak called Grafiti
by iOS developer Ian Pappas
, which allowed you to draw pictures that you could send with your text messages in the Messages application similarly to the Picto-chat feature on the Nintendo DS. It worked with both SMS and iMessage.
Grafiti has received a major update to version 2.0, which includes a complete interface redesign, which looks like it was for the better, and many more features. Above, you can see the new interface, which looks much more professionally done compared to the old version
The drawing interface looks like it belongs in iOS, and the blank page says, “start drawing here…” where you can draw your picture. The drawing interface is brought up when the user selects the international keyboard key from the keyboard. The new color picker is much easier to work with than the previous RGB sliders, and the undo and redo buttons look better too. The check button will compile your drawing into a picture that can be sent to the recipient.
Apart from the redesigned interface, version 2 of Grafiti also adds support for the iPad, and adds support for other applications, such as Facebook, Facebook Messenger, and Twitter on top of the already-supported Messages application:
In addition, an issue with the fixed brush size not saving has been fixed, and Grafiti no longer requires you to have more than one keyboard enabled from the keyboard preferences in the Settings application.
Grafiti 2.0 is a MAJOR improvement over the initial version, and if you’re looking for tweaks to load onto your fresh iPhone 5 jailbreak, then Grafiti is a tweak to check out! Grafiti requires iOS 5 or later and is available in the BigBoss repository right now for $3.99. Existing owners can upgrade for free.
