How many times have you accidentally sent an email that wasn’t finished? Or worse yet, how many times have you sent an email to the wrong recipient? Yeah, our mistakes can yield some pretty embarrassing results if we’re not careful.

Wouldn’t it be nice if your mail and SMS apps asked you if you wanted to send, before sending? AskToSend is a jailbreak app that teaches your iPhone some lessons in etiquette…

AskToSend worked exactly how I expected it to work with the stock email and SMS apps. Its a great way to “think it over” before sending your messages out, and in my opinion should be a native iPhone option to begin with.

Included in the package is also an option to verify whether or not you want to add a subject to your email. Again this is something I feel that the iPhone should include out of the box.

Interestingly enough, the tweak doesn’t work with BiteSMS, which ironically has its own built in “think it over” feature. I would imagine that this will be remedied in a future update, but perhaps the developers left it out intentionally since BiteSMS can do the same thing by its lonesome.

AskToSend can be downloaded via Cydia, and is available for jailbroken iPhones. I think that $.99 cents is a great price to pay for a jailbreak tweak that can save you so much potential grief, but what do you think?

    I constantly send an e-mail whenever I’m changing which account the e-mail is being sent from, after I select the account my initial reflex is to click the blue button on top to make the pull down w/ the e-mail accounts go away…except that freaking sends the e-mail.

    This would be a great tweak for that; however, I send so many e-mails a day it would get frustrating to have to confirm every one of them for a mistake I make once a week.

    If only there was a “cancel” button to an sms or email from being sent… because once u press yes (accidentally) on this one…. there’s no stopping that! Keep looking…

    installed 5 days ago and yes it does work for texts, has saved me a couple of times, but as regards email it’s causing major problems. even though I have it disabled for emails whenever I press the Sens button it locks the mail client then crashes back to springboard. this is hugely annoying after composing a long email. uninstalled and all is ok, emails send without problem. shame cuz I thought this tweak had potential.
