  • Popular 'auki' Quick Reply/Compose Jailbreak Tweak Updated With New Dark Mode


    We were very excited to report on the release of auki last month; it was created by iOS developer Bensge and graphic Designer Surenix. The tweak gives iOS 7 a very beautiful quick reply and quick compose functionality that includes a special silent and stealth mode feature. The tweak has proven to be very popular, and it's not very hard to see why.

    On Saturday, auki received a major update that gives the tweak a handy new dark mode that is easier on the eyes at night time, as well as some additional new features. The new dark mode can be seen in the screenshot example above.

    The dark mode can be enabled or disabled manually by the user, or, much like Apple's Do Not Disturb feature, it can be set to a specific schedule so that dark mode only happens during certain hours.

    Other new features in the update include being able to tap and hold on the reply button to reply to a message as SMS instead of iMessage, being able to tap and hold on the cancel button in order to mark a message as read without replying, improvements to the iOS 7 parallax effect, and a variety of bug fixes including:

    Fixed high CPU usage bug (thanks Beta382 for providing us with a crash log)
    Fixed failed picture messaging sending/delivering issue
    Fixed crash on iOS < 7.0.3
    Fixed keyboard bug
    Fixed crash in attachment view
    Fixed odd resizing contact picture issues
    Application/games/video will pause when replying with auki
    Compatibility with Coono
    Improved Spanish translation
    Added FlipSwitch toggle to activate compose
    Added hardware keyboard support
    Added language support for Czech, Danish, Greek, Hebrew, Slovakian, Turkish and Vietnamese (thanks to all our translators!)
    While auki is a $3.99 purchase from Cydia's BigBoss repository, those that bought and installed the tweak already will be able to download this update for free from the Changes tab in the Cydia application. The updated version of auki with dark mode and other new features is available right now!

      Is the $3.99 worth moving from BiteSMS?

      Is this really better than BiteSMS?
      I've been using BiteSMS since iPhone 3G days and I'm quite hesitant to try this out and maybe even using it for good over BiteSMS...

      still misses a few features that bite has. such as send delay, scheduled text, toggle between SMS/iMessage, status bar icon, alerts toggle.

      Eclipse or NightMode. Both can be toggled on/off (time scheduled) via Activator

      Not in a million years, Bite has no competition AT ALL, Bite is the best in its class, but props to the Auki devs nonetheless

      Bite all the way, no other messaging tweak beats Bite, but there are nice ones out there, you can try them and see if they work for you

      Not if you bought bite. Bite has more features and just feels more stable. If you're using the free version of bite then maybe.

      That's where Activator comes into play...

      BiteSMS wins IMO.

      Personally, I think auki is way better than biteSMS. I love the fact that it focuses on messaging only, rather than all other unnecessary features that come with biteSMS. It's simple and easy to use!

      Especially the privacy features of Bite, so a random person seeing your phone can't see the message. I don't believe Auki has anything like that

      iOS already has built-in privacy so that random people can't see message content.

      It's under Settings>Notification Center>Messages>"Show on Lock Screen"

      Turning this feature off will not allow anyone to pick up your phone and see what your messages say. Works great with passcodes, and auki.
