[Review] SMS Timestamps - Timestamp All Text Messages
Sometimes you might be text messaging someone and a little while later you forget exactly what time you sent or received something in a text message. Unfortunately, Apple’s way of time-stamping conversations is to time-stamp only sections at a time, which is understandable as it’s probably to help reduce the clutter in the Messages application and make the interface appear more like a clean instant messenger.
If you’re one of the people, however, that wants the time-stamps anyway – regardless of Apple’s clean design principles, than a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed SMS Timestamps
by iOS developer Gabrio Barbieri
will make sure every message you send is time-stamped. It even comes with a nice preferences pane in the Settings application to adjust the increments that the tweak time-stamps your messages:
The preferences pane is very simple – enable or disable the tweak, and then adjust the increments for which you want the time-stamps for each of your text messages to appear. By default, all text messages will be time-stamped. You also have the option to choose between time-stamping the following: 1) Every text message one minute apart from each other; 2) Every text message 5 minutes apart from each other; 3) Every text message 10 minutes apart from each other.
After installing the tweak, it was made obvious that there was a small glitch causing the tweak to not take effect. To make it work, you’ll need to disable the tweak and then re-enable it again from the preferences pane. The good news is that SMS Timestamps works with both text messages and Apple’s iMessage. For a free tweak doing exactly what it claims to do, I can recommend it for anyone serious about seeing exactly when every text message is sent or received.
