The popular text messaging quick send and quick reply jailbreak tweak known as iRealSMS for jailbroken iOS devices by iOS developer SpiritOfLogic has received an update Thursday that adds some new design styles that users can take advantage of. The most notable being a new iOS 6 style and new iOS 7 style, shown above, but also added is a new Classic style. The backgrounds of these quick reply and quick send pop-ups are customizable as well.
The iOS 6 design style takes design hints from iOS 6ís prevalent black and blue interfaces, while the iOS 7 design style takes hints from iOS 7ís flatter, whiter, and transparent blurred interfaces with thinner font. These design styles can be configured from the Settings tab of the iRealSMS application.
iRealSMS also receives a number of new improvements in this update to make the user experience better. For example, users can now adjust the layout for contacts in the quick reply interface, double-tap on the return key to send a message, tap on banner notifications from within the Messages application to be brought to the corresponding conversation, and use the smileys and conversation history shortcuts when in quick reply or quick send view.
The application also sees a number of bug fixes that will improve the applicationís reliability and user experience. Fixes have been implemented for problems such as:
- An auto-rotation bug that could cause the app not to auto-rotate
- An issue with searching through SMS messages not working
- A problem that could cause keyboard unresponsiveness
- A bug that could cause both quick reply and the main application to open at the same time
- Some minor graphical problems on the iPhone 5
- And more
