  • 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.

      There is a tweak in Cydia called SMS GV Extension which completely integrates Google Voice into your phone as if it is native SMS.
      Why, thank you very much. MMi sure misses a lot! This deserved to be on the main page in one way or another but it didn't even make it into one of the lists of new Cydia apps.

      Anyone having issues with the send button not showing up with the latest version 5.2? My send button does not show up when composing an SMS in the actual application. The send button also does not show up in the quick reply displayed on the screen. I have reinstalled it and still have the same issue. I did not have any issues until the latest updates to cydia 1.1.

      Go into your settings and make sure that your default is mobile carrier for sent text.

      Thanks. For some reason the settings were thrown off in the last update for me.

      I just updated to the new Bite. It is a must if you text a lot and are to lazy to unlock your phone and go into messages and so on.

      Has anyone else sent a person a wrong message due to Apples default text app? Such as two people text you and you want to reply to the last person that texted you. When you unlock your phone, and your in a hurry. The first person that texted you shows up and I tend to just not look. Sent a few messages to the very very wrong people. Moral of the story. Install Bite....

      With the new Bite update, by default it seemed to go off a different carrier? Not AT&T. Anyone have this? I switched it now but. Whats with the pink send button? Gunna have to change that myself.

      Havent sent an accidental text yet. Yes as me and the other guy had this happen, not sure why it changes your carrier. The pink is for bite sms text and blue is for mobile carrier. It would be nice if the new addition of text freek service allowed you text anyone without them having to have text freek.

      Well, I've been using BiteSMS it since you told me about SMS GV Ext ans the first thing I noticed is that it causes things to pop up in horizontal orientation that normally wouldn't (like the WiFi networks prompt/list) and totally screws them up (can't push buttons because they are off the screen even when returning to normal orientation). It's been long enough and they haven't fixed it. It happens and annoys me multiple times a day, so I may not use it for much longer.

      Mine works perfectly, and has for at least the past two updates. Nothing like what you are describing. I also installed Principium Beta 1, and it improved the "look" of it.

      The only issue I have is with the ringtone function of Bite not playing nicely with ToneFXs. Since they both upgraded (well, I think the issue is with Tone), I can't use the individual text alerts for each contact, just a general alert in Tone.
