BiteSMS 3.0 with Quick Reply! Availible now
Just downloaded the demo beta. It is great! I think we have a winner!
Sorry that I dont have screenshots, but just add the repo
and your all set.
So far it works flawlessly. And now has finally made me switch from irealsms back to bitesms!
Not sure what they decided to charge but I think it will be very cheap and they have by far the best customer service around.
its a 21 day trial

Does the quick reply have auto-correction?

You forgot to mention that it's now a 21 day trial version. So for all of you who use it for forwarding and deleting individual messages I advice you not to upgrade. I did and kinda regret it.

I currently use iRealSMS but I dont like how messages show unread even though they have been. I also dont like the iRealSMS over all look and feel. I do like iRealSMS for quick reply and the run in background option that allows me to launch/respond to sms messages quicker. I'm willing to give biteSMS a fresh chance though. cool

Are you saying we must pay for biteSMS PLUS 0.10/message with the new version?
02-04-2009, 11:13 AM #8
So far I like it, the app loads WAY faster than ever before. The license says it expires December 2009. It doesnt say anything a about having to buying a license. It's free to "send via carrier" as before and they only want you buy credits to send through their internet sms service. (just as before) If you are in the U.S. with an unlimited text plan, then the only reason you would ever want to buy credits would be to send a text message via WiFi if Cell towers were unreachable. So again It doesnt appear to be a paid app from what I see so far. It appears auto correction on/off is there in options but I've yet to try it Quick Reply yet.

Ahh thanks. I frequently send international texts with biteSMS (0.10/ea). Much cheaper then carrier! Would hate to also buy the app. Will save my current version just in case a downgrade is required.

I've tried all the 3rd party apps and did not like them. But I'm trying this right now and can honestly say that it's not too bad. I may actually keep it. If only they supported winterboard!
How much does it cost after the license is up? Or does it only charge your for there credits?

I just installed it. Looks great, although quick reply does not work with Intelliscreen activated. I hope this gets resolved as BiteSMS looks very promising.
I checked out the BiteSMS forum and figured it out. You must disable the SMS preview from the Edit Layout screen in IS and that will solve the issue.
On another note, they say the price is likely to be $6 USD.

Just installed this app.
Where is the setting so new texts are opened in bitesms instead of the stock sms? All new sms are coming to the stock sms app.
Ignore me: found the setting

Even buying credits isn't a permanent license solution.
I'd wish they just make an ad-supported version of the updated app. I'd use it then.
Considering the developers touted BiteSMS as 'free!' for so long (and even offer the Touch counterpart for free, even if it ends up in the AppStore), they're now being like every other iPhone developer... wanting part of the iPhone application money tree and using 'monkey see, monkey do' economics.
As is, I'm using the 'old' version and plan to back it up so I'll have it to use when I need to update or restore my phone.

They've just release the full version. $5.95 for full license after 20 day free trial
02-09-2009, 03:52 PM #20
Well, now that it's 5.95, it's not worth it.. get MySMS or iRealSMS instead. better features for almost same price.
