Thread: 'SendDelay' Delays Message Sending Just in Case You Made a Typo Mistake

    Default 'SendDelay' Delays Message Sending Just in Case You Made a Typo Mistake

    Do you ever have those, "oh crap!" moments when you accidentally spell out a typo that iOS' auto-correct didn't correct for you before sending to the recipient in the Messages application, such as like in the example shown above?

    If so, then a new free jailbreak tweak called SendDelay by iOS developer GSquared is now available that will delay your message sending by a custom period of time so that you have enough time to quickly stop the message and make changes as necessary before sending them to the recipient.

    As you can see from the screenshot above, we put "Testimg" instead of "Testing," and that would be embarrassing to send to the person that we intended to send it to, because we all know that Anthony is a grammar Nazi and he would likely chew us out for sending that. Luckily, the SendDelay jailbreak tweak can help us avoid that from happening!

    SendDelay will delay the message from sending to the recipient for a custom amount of time, and during the delay, you will see a red "Stop" button where the "Send" button usually is. If you tap on the "Stop" button, it will cancel sending that message to the recipient so that you can make edits where necessary before you send it. It's basically like a second chance to fix your typos!

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure the time delay (in seconds) to your liking:

    The tweak is always enabled by default, but you can set the delay time from anywhere between 0.0 to 5.0 seconds. Setting the delay to 0.0 effectively disables the tweak, thus, there isn't a need for a kill switch. You can set this delay to whatever you feel is comfortable enough for your brain to register that you just made a mistake. Some people are quick to see their mistakes when sending messages, while others don't notice until seconds or minutes later.

    If you're faster, you might be able to set this at one to two seconds and be fine. Those that need more time might very well use all five of the delayed seconds to get this task done.

    SendDelay is sure to come in handy during those big "oops" moments in life. It works in the Messages application for both SMS and iMessage. If you want to give it a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. SendDelay is compatible with iOS 8.

    About time this feature was made available as its own tweak. It's been a feature in BiteSMS for a while now but you could only configure 0-5 seconds. It's a great feature to have since it also helps with replying a message to the wrong recipient.
