Since its inception, Messages+ (the SMS replacement app from developer team Intelliborn) has been bundled into the larger IntelliScreenX app—purchase a license for the latter and you were able to use Messages+ as part of the ISX experience. But should you decide you only wanted to use the SMS plug-in, you were out of luck; Intelliborn forced users to buy a separate license if they wanted a standalone Messages+ app.
As of today—thanks largely to Cydia creator Jay Freeman—that has changed. Read the details after the jump.
The /r/iOSthemes section of reddit has quickly become a breeding ground for some of the newest tweaks and themes in the iOS world, giving new designers a platform to get their work in front an eager crowd. The results have been pretty spectacular.
This week, user Dekesto announced a work in progress BiteSMS theme that proved extremely popular—a then-unnamed, off-white, minimalistic theme. A few days later—now going by the name Imperial—it was done and released to Cydia on Dekesto’s own repo. To grab it for yourself, add the following repo to your Cydia sources—and be sure to keep an eye on /r/iOSthemes for future releases: http://cydia.myrepospace.com/dekesto/
One note: The keyboard shown above is not part of the theme. Instead, it comes from the FlatIcons ColorKeyboard theme. To use it you’ll need Color Keyboard, FlatIcons, and FlatIcons ColorKeyboard.
Now available in Cydia, LS Frost is an iPhone 5 friendly port of an old favorite. My version resizes the original theme, but also adds a new twist: the secondary notification stack has been relocated to the top of the display so it doesn’t overlap the central display.
It’s out now in the ModMyi repo. For installation tips, have a look at the FAQ here.
