Re: The elusive Quick Reply.....
That's totally understandable. Like I (and others have) said, some people really want this feature, some couldn't care less. For the folks that do want it, they'll take it in almost any form offered. I had Bite SMS on my jailbroken iPhone and didn't like it. In fact, there were very few "visible" jailbreak tweaks that I actually liked. They all just looked out of place. That being said, Apple has taken many of the more popular jailbreak tweaks and integrated them into the OS, except they are much more cohesive.
