  • BiteSMS 5.1 : iOS 4.2.1 Compatible


    BiteSMS has been one of my favorite apps/tweaks that is available for a jailbroken iPhone. It's made texting more enjoyable and even adds a bit of flavor and customizing.

    Over the last few months, the folks at BiteSMS have been busy testing beta versions of BiteSMS and many of us have partaken in the legwork. BiteSMS 5.1 was released January 31st to the public and is fully iOS 4.2.1 compatible. Great timing to go along with our untethered jailbreaks. So if you missed the update in all the buzz over the new Greenpois0n, go check it out now

    BiteSMS is free, but to remove adds you can pay the $8.99.

    Now fully iOS 4.2.1 compliant.
    Great new Privacy feature, allows you to easily hide any of your conversations for complete privacy and reveal them as required (or simply to blacklist them). See biteSMS, Settings, Hide Contact for details.
    Enhanced Quick List - We now show the full text message in the Quick List (unless it doesn't fit on the screen, in which case we show 3 lines per message).
    O Yeh….NICE! Quick Reply, change the size of the message text. See Settings, Quick Reply.
    You can now control the display order of messages in Quick List. See Settings, Quick List.
    Added an "All Timestamps" setting. You guessed it! If set, shows timestamps against every message.
    In biteSMS, Settings, Passcode Lock, added a new preference "Require Passcode" Immediately, After 1 minute, 3 minutes...etc.
    Improved the Quick Compose and Quick Reply typing speed and general performance.
    Any m4r files in the /Applications/biteSMS.app/sounds folder will now appear in the "biteSMS Ringtones" list. So you can use any of your own custom created ones!
    Added a FaceTime button in both Quick Compose and Quick Reply. This feature is ONLY for iOS 4.1 users and above.
    The LockInfo app "Favorites Text Message" feature now opens biteSMS.
    Added a swivel animation for the conversation contact pic when pressed.
    Added a "Reset All" option in biteSMS, Settings, About screen. Removes all preferences, license and credit information.
    Added a "Clear Failed Indicator" option in biteSMS, Settings, About screen.
    Added the ability to delete all credits for a number (right swipe) on Settings, Credits / License / Ads page (e.g. if selling phone).
    Added a warning in the Quick Reply settings page if the SBSettings toggle has been turned off (usually accidentally).
    Fixed all known issues.

      I personally Prefer this or iReal as my Main SMS App. $8.99 isn't to bad of a Price for the options that these give.

      You could delete it and reinstall the one on Cydia that is on the BigBoss repo. If you already paid for it, that shouldn't make a difference.

      I didn't say you shouldn't buy it. As for the Intelliborn comparison, that was brought up by the poster to whom I was responding. I wasn't arguing with anyone, just pointing out something I thought was fairly obvious. Have a good one.

      I'm not worried about it because it is working good just wondering if there was a difference. Thought about it but like I said no biggie. Thanks

      The best $9 I spent in Cydia. Always one of the first app I install after I jailbreak.

      I never said I couldn't afford it..I have the full version on my phone. I'm asking why the ppl who can't afford it or simply want the free version are "cheapskates"? A lot of ppl are on a tight budget these days, so I'm sure some need to save any money they can...that doesn't make them cheapskates.

      In the world of 99 cent apps, people start to count their pennies. Sigh. $8 is nothing compared to a game for any other console. $60 a game, ppl will buy and pay. $8 to remove ads, ppl get squeamish.

      I think some people just don't find some app/tweaks necessary, so they dont spend the $ on them. Some may be more into games, so that's where they would rather spend it. What ever your into. Just my opinion.

      Does anyone have a problem when using Bite that the text tones are default?
      I uninstalled bite and the text tones play the contact tone that is assigned.

      Are you saying that you assigned text tones in bite, deleted bite, and the tones still play as if bite was installed? Try a reboot?

      I assigned text tones to different contacts. The new thing you can do in 4.2.1 they never play, just default does. I uninstalled Bite and now they play.





      Never mind I found out how in Bite how to set it up.

      When you select a ring tone it overrides the system sound so that's why your only getting that one tone. BUT...you should be able too switch teh different tones under the ring tone settings in BITE SMS4.2.1.
