Rich Text For Mail - Mail Customization
A recently released tweak by Ryan Petrich (@rpetrich) gives a menagerie of new features to the Mail.app client on the iDevice. In conjunction with Action Menu, you now have the ability to customize many different composition aspects when sending an email on your iDevice. Fonts, styles, and colors - you can change all these with ease through Rich Text For Mail. Each item gives you many different options to choose from. Rich Text For Mail gives a unique touch and feel to your iPhone email, and can make your future emails more formal and professional.
On top of this, staple features such as Underline, Strikethrough, Bold, and Italic are all prominent parts also. What's unique about this tweak is it encompasses all the features an email client should have. It gives you the option to create well-done emails simply and with ease. Not to mention it runs smoothly and is quite a handy tweak. Due to it's functionality with Action Menu, there are no external buttons, and minimal settings can be found in the Rich Text For Mail tab in the Settings.app. It's available on Cydia now for $4.99. Give it a shot and see why this tweak could potentially be helpful in any emailing situation on your iDevice!
While testing/reviewing, I snagged Ryan Petrich to answer a few questions about Rich Text For Mail:
JOSH: What gave you the idea to create Rich Text For Mail?
RYAN: The idea has been floating around for a long time. I've been considering the project for at least a year.
JOSH: How long did it take to develop Rich Text For Mail?
RYAN: Started 8 months ago-ish with API experiments but I can't give a time estimate for how long it took.
JOSH: Any upcoming projects that you are willing to speak about?
RYAN: Upcoming projects are always under lock and key .

These jb devs are really talented. Implementing useful tweaks is definitely the way to go. Key word being "useful". A little skiddish about the price though. I know it's great features but 4.99...
Awesome cover Josh

I bought it and love it, but there's one critical feature missing. Adding links to selected words or sentences. Hope that feature is included in a future update.

$4.99 for this?? You have to be joking.

ModMyi is starting to return to the site I've always liked because of new writer Josh Tucker. Josh is bringing us the scoop on new tweak after tweak for the iPhone and isn't that what "ModMyi" is suppose to be about? I enjoy most of the other stories too, but modding my iPhone is what Im most interested in. Thanks Josh for what you've done so far and I look forward to all of your future articles. Keep up the great work!

I joined because modmyi is a great place to start If you know absolutely nothing about jb. The information is great and I love the forums and the interaction with peeps.
I'm not trying to be a kiss***... Just my opinion.
