Thread: 'ConvoPics' Enables Contact Pictures in the Messages App on iOS 8 for Non 6+ iPhones

    Default 'ConvoPics' Enables Contact Pictures in the Messages App on iOS 8 for Non 6+ iPhones


    In iOS 8, on the iPhone 6 Plus, the Messages application includes contact pictures in the conversation list. There are several devices that don't, like older devices such as the iPod touch 5g, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 6.

    If you're running iOS 8 on any of these devices and you want to enable contact pictures in your Messages application so you can better recognize who you're talking to at a glance, you can download a new free jailbreak tweak for iOS 8 called ConvoPics by iOS developer Skylerk99.

    With the tweak installed, you can have contact pictures appear next to the conversations with your friends on any of your iOS 8 devices, whether it's an iPhone 6 Plus or not.

    At this point in time, Cydia, which is required to install ConvoPics, does not come bundled with the iOS 8 jailbreak, but you can install it manually – here's a guide on how to do that. Pangu announced Saturday morning that they're working with Saurik to get Cydia bundled with Pangu as soon as possible in the next release of the tool.

    If you want to give ConvoPics a try on your iOS 8 device, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 8 is required to install this jailbreak tweak.

    Name: ConvoPics
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.0.1-2
    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Skylerk99

    That I don't know, because I don't have any pictures assigned to my contacts.

    iPhone 6 doesn't have that feature natively either. This tweak will come in handy on iphone 6 as well.
