iPhone Gets BiteSMS Features on iOS 8 [Jailbreak Tweak]

While there is no biteSMS iOS 8 update, there is a different Cydia tweak that brings biteSMS iPhone 6 features. The program has a different title but it promises to deliver some bite-SMS-like options to the latest official firmware version developed and released by Apple.

There are a couple of things to note. Firstly, the tweak is not free. Secondly, according to a number of users who have downloaded this program it might contain some problems.

How to Get BiteSMS Features on iOS 8

Step 1. The BigBoss repo on Cydia store with tons of great iOS 8 jailbreak tweaks has the new title Columba that costs $2.99. Download and install it.

Step 2. Go to Settings where you’ll find the new pane and turn on the program.

Step 3. There are two styles, Windowed and Native, that let to quickly compose messages through pop-up window or Messages interface.

Step 4. You can schedule text messages delivery time [learn how to cancel iPhone text message after sending it].

Step 5. All the tweak’s options are available through Messages interface as well. You will find ‘plus’ instead of camera icon inside this app.

Step 6. You can use emojis, insert a photo, use different message templates and do other actions through this ‘plus’ option.

Step 7. Right now Columba only reminds of biteSMS but it needs further polishing. This program might sometimes crash, so keep this in mind if you decide to give it a try.

The next iOS 9 firmware should bring Quick Reply feature without any tweaks. Apple is working on Messages program upgrade so users who wish to use some quick respond options will be able to do this without the need of being jailbroken and searching for biteSMS-like features.

Developers and some users are currently testing iOS 9 beta 1 which can be downloaded through direct links.
