Thread: WeiSMS/iSMS

  1. #1
    Default WeiSMS/iSMS
    http://code.google.com/p/weisms/

    No idea why I couldn't find a specific thread when I did a search for this app, I guess SMSD has kinda taken over as the de facto standard...

    However I have always liked this one more, and don't ask me why.

    I like it even better now theres a version which can take over as the default app without having to ssh, or play in terminal, as I believe is still necessary with SMSD.

    iSMS Installer Source URL - http://iphone.nonsoft.com/repo/

    * The source includes release and snapshot build of iSMS
    * The snapshot build will contain the latest changes but may unstable.
    * Please read the wiki InstallerSource for details

    iSMS is a native SMS application for iPhone, with following enhancements

    * Search your message
    * Forwarding received message
    * Delete message one by one
    * Send message to multi-recipients
    * Send contact information via SMS
    * Support smilies in Message
    * User could create pre-defined texts and append them into message
    * i18n support
    * More ...
    I am using the latest snapshot build on 1.1.4 and so far so good It even includes blacklisting if thats something you need

    Yeah... been using it for a while now, pretty sweet app... just runs into the problem when setting it as taking over default app, it henders the device to becomming unresponsive, have to manually respring through putty, and whenever you reboot, same thing.

    Happend on 2 different restores... but still a sweet app

    Hmm, I have had no such issues, its working beautifully for me. Are you using the latest rc2?

    well i dont like the new way to forward messages or reply. you have to use the native sms. i would just use the isms to send and receive messages. which it does do but whgen i reply i dont want native sms to come into play. just my opinion. eventhough, its a nice app but i dont like that feature.

    what does this blacklisting do? block messages from unwanted number?

    eh, untill this uses the chat-like interface with the bubbles as the base for convos without single texts and stuff, no thanks

    I've been using the latest rc2 of iSMS without any issues whatsoever. The chatlike interface is finally working the way it should. Like an earlier post though, I'd prefer to reply using the "old" method of not using the "native" sms look and feel.

    Agreed, there should be an option to not only forward, but also reply and also conversation balloon style reply.

    I sometimes prefer the traditional reply ie, standard sms input box, with ability to put multi names, and templates and most important, an SMS numerical count, so you know not to exceed 160 characters. In conversation bubble mode, there is none of these features, and no sms counter.

    Latest ver. is SOOOooooo Laggy, compared to SMSD, so until now i'll stick to SMSD, but great work :-)

    SMSD also has a proper reply dialogue box, so it can have SMS counter, yum yum

    Interestingly, I've had some issues with it, too, since I first posted the thread... and so I am going to give smsd another shot.

    Default Weisms/iSMS
    Hi everyone,
    SMSD doesn't function on my 1.1.4 so I thought of installing isms, so added the course http://iphone.nonsoft.com/repo/ but couldn't see the application Shown Chain's Apps on the packages list ... did he change the source or take it off?!!!

    For More info... go here - http://code.google.com/p/weisms/

    But what i w0uld reccomend is to go to www.iappcat.com and create your own repository, add it to installer, do a search for weisms, and add it from there.... thats what I did, and by far the easiest way to manage your apps and faster refresh. Nice iPhone layout for the site as well.

    I`m running RC2 but cannot get chat bubbles view. How can I get iSMS to show that view?

  18. #18
    when reading a message, push the left hand arrow at the bottom of the message. This is essentially the "reply" mode in iSMS. and will bring up chat bubbles, similar to the built in SMS application.
