Indispensable Jailbreak App BiteSMS Gets Full iOS 5 Support And More

BiteSMS is a strong contender right now for our best jailbreak tweak of 2011, and almost as if it were trying to get ahead in the poll, they’ve gone ahead and released the new 6.0 version of the bite-sized text messaging app, which is the first to fully support iOS 5.

Here’s what is new.

• iOS 5 compatibility, works on iPhone and iPod devices. Fully integrated with all iOS 5 features including iMessaging and Notification Center.
• NEW Look Quick Compose and Quick Reply.
• NEW Passcode lock feature inside Quick Reply.
• NEW Ability to use the native Messages icon instead of the biteSMS one.
• Note: For iOS 4 users, in effect you are installing Release 5.5 of biteSMS and don’t get any new features.

If you don’t have BiteSMS, it costs $9.99 and, for the first time ever, can be downloaded straight from the BigBoss Cydia repository, no custom repos required.
