iRealSMS 2.0 Available For Jailbroken iPhones

For you diehard jailbreakers, iRealSMS 2.0 has been released in Cydia for the iPhone 2.x software. iRealSMS serves as a paid replacement for the standard SMS app on jailbroken devices. It offers a few advantages over Apple’s app, like landscape mode for everything in the app, the ability to organize messages into folders, save drafts, search messages by the sender’s name and more.

Conversation Mode

  • no loading time at app startup

Full Landscape Mode

  • new design/layout
  • improved SMS View
  • improved new SMS View
  • no nation identifier setting needed anymore
  • COMPATIBILITY MODE for users of SwirlyMMS
  • Support for MULTIPLE LANGUAGES / localization (English, German, Polish already included)
  • search contacts to add to recipients in new SMS view
  • statusbar icon for unread SMS (can be turned off to prevent duplicate items from other apps)
  • continue working while messages are sent
  • mark all messages as read button
  • SMS alerts can be deactivated -> no “new SMS” alerts when locked or outside iRealSMS
  • Adding contact details to SMS
  • Custom backgrounds (/Applications/*.png files)
  • Also contains numerous bug fixes

There have been a few complaints about it’s price, however. Buying the new app will cost $10, and upgrading from 1.0 will be $6. You can get it from their website.
