One of the most popular reasons to jailbreak an iPhone is BiteSMS, a jailbreak tweak that supper charges text messaging with better messaging alerts, quick reply and more. Unfortunately, ever since the iOS 7 jailbreak came along BiteSMS has been MIA, but that’s all changed with the release of BiteSMS for iOS 7, which not only updates the popular messaging app to be compatible with Apple’s latest mobile OS but also adds support for modern devices with 64-bit A7 processors.

This is not the first beta of BiteSMS for iOS 7 that we have seen. On December 27, the makers of BiteSMS accidentally released a beta version of the app to Cydia, only to pull it because of instability.

The new version is better. Introducing a number of important bug fixes and general stability improvements to the BiteSMS beta that was accidentally released, BiteSMS is now ready for prime time, bringing the powerful texting tool to the iPhone 5s for the first time. Features include Quick Reply, Quick Compose, Scheduled Messages, Auto-Forward, Auto-Retry, Passcode Lock, Privacy, Contact Pics, Easy Pick Smileys, Templates, Signatures and more.

BiteSMS is a free download through Cydia, although after 7 days, the app will show you small banner advertisements, which can be removed with a donation. If you send a lot of texts, BiteSMS is a strong incentive to jailbreak.

    @ yyyau1002: nope, BiteSMS is jb only. Just jailbreak your device already (evasi0n.com) and enjoy all the benefits! People get all worried about jailbreaking, but its safe and easy. You can always do a restore through iTunes if you decided it wasn’t for you.
