I can tell that I'm a nerd because I'm way too excited about this jailbreak app. :p Since I haven't seen anyone posting about it here (at least a search hasn't turned up much), I thought I'd share in case it will be of interest to others.

It's a very simple SMS/iMessage tweak. It's not an app that will give you more emoticons or other fancy new text messaging features. All it does is make it far easier to text from anywhere, even while you're using another app. You can access the messaging interface simply by swiping up from the bottom edge of the screen. Then you simply address and type your message and press send and this interface disappears and takes you right back to the app you were using.

If you get a new text message, you can tap on the notification pop-up at the top and it will reveal the same interface so you can reply quickly without exiting the app you're currently viewing.

That's it. It's very simple but is incredibly handy. Here's a video (not mine, just one I found) that demonstrates how it works very well.


I purchased it for $7.99 (I already had LockInfo and did not need Intelliscreen which it is bundled with for an extra $2) and it was well worth the price, IMHO.

(I know that there are other messaging tweaks and apps out there like BiteSMS and I'm not saying this one is better but I really like it and definitely recommend it.)

That's a nice tweak. I would def get it if I didn't have Zephyr which uses the swipe up from the bottom to reveal the multitask pane.

Yes. Great tweak. I wish Apple would implement something like this natively.
