    Bitesms if you want a different message app, themes. Message+ to keep the stock message.

    exactly. one of my issues with jailbreaking is the fact that most JB apps/tweaks look un-iOS like

    Messages+ is built-in nicely

    In biteSMS there is an option to hide the original text app and color bite to look like original text app.

    Messages+ is definitely better in my opinion. But you may as well buy ISX that has messages+ included with it.

    Are there any configurable options for Messages+ at all please? If so, I can't find them anywhere either in settings, ISX or a standalone Messages+ icon/app. I'm not bothered if there isn't, I just want to make sure i'm not missing a trick here somewhere.

    nope, just banner dismissal. it really is just the native SMS that can be used anywhere at anytime

    it is a personal preference, really. if you want a crap load of info on you lockscreen this it is great!

    yep, i believe the default activation is swipe up from bottom left of your screen

    but you can change it to whatever you prefer in Activator

    BiteSMS all the way! Honestly though, it's just a matter of preference. Message+ is also good.

    I am talking more about the QR feature on the lock screen. I rarely have the need to create a txt from anywhere, but I do have the need to reply without losing my current application. I love BiteSMS, but after looking at Messages+, I am not using more than 10% of what BiteSMS offers. I would guess a lighter weight app would have less effect on my device. (the less method of jailbreaking)

    quick reply from the lockscreen lets you swipe the native notification and it instantly goes into Messages+, once done it goes away

    i am not saying that one is better than the other. i have had biteSMS probably since it came out but after time i have found that Messages+ works for ME the best

    it does not have all of the bells and whistles like bite, of course. and that is why i prefer it

    I honestly can't decide between using Lockinfo 5 and BiteSMS or Intelliscreen X and Messages+

    The cost difference isn't an issue as it's only a few pounds different and considering how much I use my phone the functionality is so much more useful.

    Now, if there was a way of condensing the clock and weather into one bar, like in Lockinfo then I would go down the ISX route for definite. Having the clock, weather and settings buttons on the notification centre take up half of the screen real estate on ISX, less so on Locknfo.

    I prefer the functionality of BiteSMS but the lightweight purity of Messages+.

    Damn, damn, damn!

    Feature wise, bitesms takes the cake. Functionality wise, I like messages+ because its simple and doesn't have as many bugs as bitesms. I like the themes for bitesms but they tend to slow the app down a little soo I don't use them anymore. Bitesms is defiantly more feature packed than messages+
