BiteSMS 2.5 Beta for iPhone

Posted November 6, 2008 at 11:49am by iClarified
BiteSMS has been updated to version 2.5 and adds landscape mode, GPS location coordinates, and hotlinks, according to an iPhoneFreakz report.

New features in 2.5:
- Ability to insert a contact name & number or email address when composing an SMS just right swipe in the message text box (not supported in landscape mode)
- Ability to insert your current GPS location coordinates when composing an SMS just right swipe in the message text box (not supported in landscape mode)
- For incoming SMS messages that contain a http url, now allows user to open up Safari, YouTube or Google Maps
- Added Landscape mode when composing an SMS message, and with a larger font as well!! (you need to be in the compose text box before it’ll rotate to landscape)
- Faster navigation from “Text Messages” view to specific message conversation
- Compliance with Cydia Mobile Substrate framework for registering of dylibs (now a Cydia prerequisite)
- Unify status bar color (containing character counter and credit / message indicator)
- Upon pressing “Send…” keyboard reverts to normal mode (if currently in numbers / special symbols mode) as per Apple SMS application

If you can't wait until the 2.5 general release you can beta test biteSMS 2.5 by adding the following repo to your Cydia Installer: http://www.bitesms.com/cydia/beta

it doesnt require registration if u wanna send sms via your mobile carrier only (i.e. a replacement for iphone's stock sms app) i've been using this app since 1.1.4 and its great. why not just head over to cydia to download it instead of asking questions here?

what do you mean no need to pay? pardon me but it requires registration and you need to buy the App rite?

you need to investigate a little more before you slag off this great app, the do not force you to pay a penny to use the app, simply set the default to send via carrier and its that simple your texts are only charged according to your carrier plan, the option you have is to send cheaper once your free texts are exhausted but you dont have to use it. dont listen to the ill informed, this is a great app and they would not take a dontation when I offered it

Who the hell would pay to use this program? Why buy credits when 99% of people have plans that include text messaging?
