BiteSMS 3.0 Beta Released

Posted February 4, 2009 at 11:45am by iClarified
BiteSMS is a replacement for the default SMS application on the iPhone and adds many features for text messaging.

BiteSMS 3.0 has been released in beta on the official BiteSMS Beta Cydia Repository. The application has a 20 day trial period after which it will now cost around $6 dollars to purchase. You will need to add http://www.bitesms.com/cydia/beta as a source in Cydia to install the beta application.

New Features:
- Added the sub-menu (right-swipe in text box) showing “Add My Location” and Smileys to Landscape mode.
- Added auto-correction in settings page per active language, so when you switch keyboards the auto-correction setting for that language will take effect – neat!
- Added additional smileys, and made them more quickly accessible.
- Added Privacy feature, allowing control over whether the Name, Text and Preview window is shown for incoming SMS messages.
- Added Quick Reply…!
- When sending an SMS, you can now press the Power or Home keys and it will be sent as expected, without needing to wait for the “sending….” process to complete.
- Reorganized the settings screen and updated text, so that the settings are easier to understand.
- Added functionality such that the Intelliscreen “Launch SMS” feature now works with biteSMS.
- Much faster matching of contacts, especially for those users with very large Contact databases (+5000 contacts) – Yippee!
- Added an End User License Agreement into biteSMS, which only needs to be acknowledged once.
- Added licensing to biteSMS, including a free trial period.

BiteSMS also lets you buy credits; then each time you compose an SMS, choose to send it via the biteSMS network instead of your mobile carrier for cheaper rates.
