BiteSMS 4.3 for iPhone Now Available

Posted August 31, 2009 at 11:47pm by iClarified
BiteSMS 4.3, a replacement to the built-in Apple messaging application is now available for the iPhone.

BiteSMS adds lots of extra features like smileys, Quick Reply, Quick Compose/Quick Call, Privacy, a character/SMS counter and more.

Whats New In This Version:
* New feature that allows Quick Compose to be used in the lock screen mode - Nice!
* Added support for “delivery receipt SMS notifications” using carrier prefix codes, e.g. #N9 (it’s not proper SMS protocol level delivery receipts, it just asks your carrier - if supported, for an SMS notification upon delivery). For prefix codes see: http://www.sosiphone.com/blogiphone/sms ... -worldwide
* New Accents / Diacritics feature, whereby accent and diacritic characters are replaced with their equivalent non-special characters, e.g. á replaced with a. The intent is to maximize the number of characters you get when sending an SMS message.
* Added a passcode feature to control access to biteSMS and native Messaging applications.
* Added “Forward” feature in Cut&Paste menu on bubble double-tap inside the biteSMS application (SMS only, not MMS).
* Added a heap more smileys :-)
* Added a smiley setting to allow “Short Code” version of smileys to be used, e.g. :) instead of :-) to save on the number of SMS characters used.
* Added smiley setting to allow encoding of smileys to be Emoji or ASCII.
* When user enters the text field and it only contains a signature, the cursor will now be positioned before the signature (currently it’s wherever the user touches).
* The autocorrect feature now works correctly.
* Added Mon, Tue, Wed…etc to the Settings, Carrier SMS Plan, Reset Counter feature for those on weekly plans.
* Added a setting to allow the Quick Reply read / unread circle feature to be turned off.
* Added a setting for Quick Reply to “Auto-Close” if set, when you press the Send button the window auto-closes.
* Added a setting for Quick Compose to “Auto-Close” if set, when you press the Send button the window auto-closes.
* Added a new nicer Favs icon for the Quick Compose window.
* Updated the start-up image (default.png) displayed when biteSMS starts-up to include the settings icon as well.
* Fixed Bug in Quick Compose and Quick Reply, where you entered text, lock, unlock and then the entered text was gone.
* Fixed issue when using biteSMS sub-menu (from long-hold / double tap in text field) upon clicking back in text field, the cut&paste menu would be shown again.
* Added a setting in Quick Compose called “Default Last To:”, which defaults last entered contact into the “To” field.
* Added a shadow effect in the Quick Compose and Quick Reply screens.
* New pink send button in Quick Compose and Quick Reply screens.
* Fixed iGo and Chopper from crashing when biteSMS installed.
* Fixed issue, whereby upon first start-up of biteSMS after upgrade or install, it crashed due to other Mobile Substrate applications being active.

Oh ok, I see. I had to go to their site for the full info.. and other than quick reply and quick compose I see no other use for this app. The standard SMS app is good for me, I have all kind of smilies already that I barely use... If the default SMS app had quick reply and quick compose, SMS on the iphone would be complete.

is the full license a one time fee or a monthly fee? Their numbers are weird.

Full license is a one time fee. I bought my license in the 2.0 version and they transferred it when 3GS was jailbroken. As for usefulness, I use quick compose all the time and also responding to texts while in another application, say a game. I have an ATT unlimited text plan, so I don't worry about the text count side of the app, so I cannot say how they work as a text provider.

So you can use the app without having to waste the 5, 10, or 50 bucks with them and it'll use your ATT text plan? If so, that makes it worth it now.
