Telegram is another cross platform messaging app that hasn’t gained as much fame as Whatsapp but offers nice features missing from the latter app. If you’re a frequent user of the Telegram app, you’ll be glad to find out about a new jailbreak tweak known as Envelope.
Telegram currently lacks the support of Quick Reply feature which was introduced in iOS 8. To address this issue, developer Noeliel released Envelope which adds the feature to the messaging app allowing you to respond to messages from anywhere throughout iOS.
Similar to the stock Messages app, when you receive a message from Telegram, you can swipe down the Notification Banner to respond to the message via the text field that appears where you can type in your message before sending it.
The best thing about the tweak is that it also allows you to respond to messages from the Lock screen or Notification Center. On the Lock screen, all you have to do is to swipe the Telegram notification to the left and a blue ‘Reply’ button appears next to it. Tapping on it allows you to instantly respond to the message from the Lock screen without opening the app.
Along with individual conversations, the tweak also supports group messages. Envelope comes with no settings to configure so once you’ve installed it, you can take advantage of the Quick Reply feature right away.
If you’re a frequent user of Telegram, I’ll definitely recommend that you give this tweak a try as it will make messaging on Telegram more convenient and easy. Envelope works with the latest version of Telegram app (v2.8) and is available on Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $1.49.
