Kairos 2

If your friend’s birthday is coming up soon and you don’t want to miss out on wishing him a happy birthday, then you’re going to find Kairos 2 useful. This tweak allows you to schedule iMessage and SMS messages so that they will be sent out at the exact date and time that you specify.

With Kairos, you’ll no longer forget sending an important message at the right time. Simply schedule when a particular message should be sent and Kairos will handle the rest.


Messaging at night where the environment is dark might not be suiting to the eyes. Fortunately enough, there is a tweak called DarkMessages that solves this problem by bringing dark mode to the Messages app. It changes the interface of the Messages app to a dark scheme so that you can continue messaging with ease during the night without hurting your eyes.

The tweak gets rid of the white color interface of Messages and replaces it with a darker color. The UI elements blend together very nicely to provide a delightful experience.

DarkMessages works with the Messages app only, so if you’re looking for a tweak that applies to the entire iOS, then you should check out Eclipse.

If you want to customize certain UI elements of the Messages app, the you should check out a tweak called BetterMessages. It provides a suit of customization tools for the iOS 10 Messages app that allow you to change the look and feel of the app. You can hide certain UI elements, view the delivery progress of a message, switch to a translucent navigation bar, customize the chat bubbles and much more.


If you’ve ever been in a group conversation in iMessage, then you might be aware that you can’t leave a group unless there are more than 4 participants in the group, including yourself. This kind of limitation is very frustrating because there are some groups that you don’t want to participate in, but you can’t leave until there are enough members in it.

AntiSocial is a tweak that solves this problem by allowing you to leave an iMessage group whenever you want, regardless of the number of people in the group.

TranslucentMessages is another customization tweak for the Messages app, but it brings a unique and interesting concept. The tweak makes your Messages app translucent such that when you are using the app, you can slightly see your wallpaper. What I like the most about this tweak is the attention to detail. The chat bubbles, navigation bar, buttons, and almost everything else has been tweaked to go hand in hand with a translucent interface.

All of us have that one friend who sometimes sends a constant stream of messages one after the another. This can be very annoying when your phone is not on Silent mode or when you’re at the workplace. If you’ve ever been in such a situation, then you should definitely check out a tweak called DoNotAnnoy.

This jailbreak tweak allows only a single notification to be displayed based on the filters that you’ve specified. For instance, you can set up a rule so that only one notification is displayed after every 10 seconds. In this way, if someone sends you a stream of notifications, it will be displayed to you every 10 seconds, rather than all at once which can be extremely annoying.

TypeStatus lets you know when someone starts to type an iMessage by displaying a typing indicator in the Status bar. Likewise, you will also be notified when your iMessage has been read by a recipient.

With this tweak, you no longer have to open the Messages app to check if your messages have been read or if someone is typing a reply. The tweak displays this information via the Status bar, so it can be viewed from anywhere in iOS as long as the Status bar is shown
