    Default 'SMSContactPhotos7' Enables Contact Photos Throughout the Messages Application


    For those of you that want to add contact photos to your Messages application in iOS 7 to make it even easier to discern who it is that you're talking to, there's a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed SMSContactPhotos7 by iOS developer David Harkey available that will do just that.

    SMSContactPhotos7 will add contact photos to both your messages list view, and your conversation thread view. By making contact photos visible in both of these views, you'll see them no matter what you might be doing in the Messages application.

    The contact photos take the flat, round iOS 7-style appearance that you would expect, so this tweak does a good job of making the feature look like a natively-enabled feature.

    If you want to give SMSContactPhotos7 a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak has no options to configure.

    Name: SMSContactPhotos7
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0.1-9
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: David Harkey
    Editor's Rating: / 3.5/5

    OK, a few things to say...

    First, idk why this wasn't standard on iPhones like it is for iPad. I'm appreciative of the many tweaks that enable this on phones but just wish it was standard from the get go.

    Second, Anthony, I notice you rate a lot of things 3.5 stars. Why? :P

    iMessages on my iMac has quite a few ways to organize the text like compact instead of bubbles and with and without contact photos. Maybe it's too much. Makes it look clutters but then again it might not hurt to add the feature just in case anybody does want it

    I think you should scrap your rating system coz it's a load of b*llocks. You haven't said anything negative about this tweak, and even though it does exactly what it says it does, you didn't give it 5/5!

    Ive used message customizer and recently tried copic(beta), works the same but has more option including contact pictures in email. However pics are mixed up on group messages. Im gonna give this a try while waiting for copic to release an update..
