    An app that's always been a must-have for me on my jailbroken iPhone, the developers of the enhanced and feature-packed texting app BiteSMS have announced that the app will be updated for iOS 8 - 8.1 and available in the next couple of weeks. Check out the article.

    Also to mention, you can install it now and it won't cause any issues that I have noticed. It's nice to have it installed now so you'll get an update when it's officially ready.

    Oops...I forgot about that. I installed BiteSMS repo for the beta version which is still all good to do, you will just get beta updates once it officially comes out.

    According to "poof" from Cydia that you can use to hide apps, BiteSMS is somewhere on my iPhone, but no where to be found yet.

    So how are you using it? It doesn't show up in Spotlight for me.

    Sorry if what I've said was not said properly, but it's not usable yet. I just decided to get the beta repo version (thinking it would work), but it's all good...I'll see an update in Cydia when it is.

    You're right - it wasn't said properly. ;)

    According to recent statements by the developers, it will possibly be 7-8 MONTHS before the release. They didn't expect cydia to release so soon so they weren't working on it---and apparently their main developer quite? I need an alternative messaging app! I can't stand the native one! Drives me bonkers! I have intelliscreen which installs messages+...but you can't change message bubbles with that app, and that's what I really need to do!

    I'd love MessagesCustomiser to be updated for iOS 8.
