    I'm ready to buy one, I'm sick of having to stop what I'm doing, and close whatever app I'm in to respond to text messages, I think there's two on Cydia? Has anyone used either of them? If so, which one is better??

    Thanks..

    I use biteSMS and I am extremely pleased with it. Cool thing is I think you can still do a 14 day trial before actually buying the app. That way you can see if its a good fit for you.

    i use QuickReply for SMS. get a pop-up while in any app. you have option to View/Close/Reply right from the pop-up. if you Reply, it sends the reply and closes the window taking you right back to the app you were using before the message. i love it!

    Third on QuickReply. Works great even from the lock screen. Just double tap the SMS and you can reply with out unlocking the phone.

    I'm in the demo period for biteSMS, and I like it. I also have Quickreply, and it worked well for replying. (biteSMS allows you to create new SMS while in other apps in addition to the reply functionality.)

    only thing i didn't like about BiteSMS was the setting that took over my volume-up button. instead of volume control it became a shortcut for creating a new SMS message. honestly, i never spent much time trying to figure out if i could change it or not. just deleted and moved on.

    And I'm so glad I read this thread, cause I'd forgotten this was the app I purchased and just re-installed it (having restored my iPhone yesterday). I also love it!

    I am trying to get this app in Cydia through sinfuliphone.com and I keep getting a message that says, "NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided, or not known" Anybody know what this is and how I can get around it?

    Thanks!

    I agree with loudrims, i always try to purchase through Rock as well. With your sign-in ID, it saves everything you download or purchase so if you have to restore, you can just sign in and restore from your last backup they have on their server. Pretty neat.

    And to the topic, QuickReply for SMS is by far the best app I think I've ever downloaded productivity wise. It's something Apple should have implemented from the beginning. I seriously don't think I could live without it now. I don't know how I went over 2 years switching between apps everytime I got a text. It's annoying. QuickReply for SMS is a must have for iPhone users who send tons of texts.

    I've been using the 3.0 beta for iRealSMS without any issues. I like it alot. Glad they are getting the bugs worked out, since I missed it. The final release should be a bit better than biteSMS, never tried "QuickReply" so can't comment there.

    On the iRealSMS website, it says to purchase its 13 bucks, that's kind of steep/ridiculous isn't it? QuickReply for SMS is only 2.99

    Hmmm, it looks like it's a cool program that does about the same thing that QuickReply does, but for a lot more expensive.

    It is a bit high priced, but I bought my license when there weren't too many other options. It was the same price when the only real feature you got from it was landscape SMS. For the extra features you get...it's worth more than quickreply.

    All I've looked at is the cydia description for quickreply, but it seems a whole lot like TLert. iRealSMS in addition to the features below, has a replacement UI for the apple SMS app. iRealQuickSMS (which hasn't been updated yet) has all the features of iRealSMS, but without the appleSMS UI replacement, and is quite a bit cheaper, like 6 bucks.

    Features:
    @NEW USER INTERFACE!!
    @Contact Pics in Conversations List
    @FULL MMS SUPPORT!
    @Orientation Settings affect QReply and QuickSend... so Portrait only will disable Landscape QR and QS
    @Redesigned QuickReply
    ----No Lockscreen Timeout when Typing
    ----Contact Pictures in QuickReply Window
    ----Now QR to MMS messages
    ----Insert MMS Pictures into QuickReply
    ----Emoji filter Active: Converts ASCII emoji into iPhone graphical versions and vice versa
    ----New Landscape Layout! (NO HIDDEN BUTTONS!)
    ----badge indicators for in queue qrelies remaining
    ----no more interupted messages: when you start typing, incoming messages will be pushed into queue
    ----New Character counter
    @Redesigned QuickSend
    ----No Lockscreen Timeout when Typing
    ----New Character counter
    ----Improved Contact Search
    ----Emoji Filter
    ----MMS Insert
    ----New Landscape Layout!

    Hmm, contact pics would be kind of sweet, but that would probably be the only thing I see that would be intriguing to me. I guess I can't justify the 13 for it.

    Quickreply for me. Love not having to exit apps and the ability to view/reply/close is a great thing. It gives me the option to just ignore.
