Delicious Inc, the developer of biteSMS released a beta version of their extremely popular jailbreak app for iOS 7 and iPhone 5s more than a month back.

After releasing 19 beta versions and more than a month and half of testing, they have finally released the first public release of biteSMS 8.0.

biteSMS, in case you’re not aware, is one of the most popular alternatives for the Messages app, and probably one of the main reasons users jailbreak their iPhone. It enhances the messaging experience on the iPhone with number of features such as Quick Reply, Quick Compose, scheduled SMS, delivery reports, signatures etc. that are not available in the native Messages app.

Check out our exhaustive 21-minute video of biteSMS 8.0, where we walk you through all the features:

If you’ve installed the beta version, then uninstall the tweak and remove http://test-cydia.bitesms.com repo from Cydia, and install biteSMS 8.0 from the BigBoss repo.

The free version of biteSMS 8.0 is ad-supported. But users can pay a one-time fee of $7.99 to remove the ads after a 7-day trial period. You could also get biteSMS 8.1 beta 1 from the http://test-cydia.bitesms.com repo, which includes the following features and improvements:

  • Copy to Clipboard button and feature. (Convo, Contact, the 2 pieces of paper icon)
  • Message Alerts toggle via Flipswitch (FlipControlCenter) – but need a better icon, anyone help here? (PDF vector format).
