This iOS Concept Lets You Set Reminders for Getting Back to Text Messages
We’ve definitely all been in a situation where we have received a text message at an inopportune time; however, when we put our iPhones back in our pocket, or continue playing around in the app we were working in, we might forget to reply to the person that sent the message to us.
This idea by iOS concept designer Joshua Tucker helps take this inconvenience into consideration, by integrating a reminder feature into the Messages application.
The way the concept works is when the user holds down on a text message, or iMessage, that they receive, the pop-up bubble won’t only say copy – it will also give the user a Remind option...
Tapping on the Remind button brings up an option sheet allowing the user to choose between being reminded of the text message after 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, or 1 hour. Alternatively, the user can tap on a cancel button to exit the share sheet, which will appear at the bottom of the list, to cancel the reminder.
After the user selects a time option, a reminder will be created in the Reminders application that actually reminds the user of the text message after the selected amount of time has passed.
According to Joshua, the concept (or a variant of it) may be a part of a future jailbreak tweak project with iOS developer Andrew Richardson. If you want to get this functionality right now, instead of waiting, you can use the following package via GitHub (compliments of Jonathan Bailey) and install it with iFile:

Here is a video showing how to install it:

if this does go into further development, itd be cooler if itd work by when in the conversation mode, holding on the 'messages' tab (which brings us back to the list of conversations) for a few seconds sets the most recent message to reappear in a banner (as if the message was just delivered) to a pre-determined amount of time..say 5 or 10 minutes. this way i think it would be a little more fluent. what do you think Josh / Jonathon /Andrew?
also, if this did go ahead, bitesms compatibility would be dandelicious. i love scheduled messaging.
also love your stuff josh. (on a side note, im happy to hear the answer/decline buttons are coming back to CallBar!)

I've installed and it works with the stock Messages app but does not support BiteSMS yet.

It would be more convenient if this was a feature on the notification banner or the lockscreen. If you are in the app and have to hold the text and select remind and pick a time, you might as well just reply.

Nice work JT, work fine

I don't get it, why not just start a new reminder to "text Mr. X"
I can't imagine this saves much time or is easier than setting the reminder via speaking it to Siri.

But keep your eyes peeled. Something is on the horizon.
