ChatPic Makes it Easy to See Who’s Texting

Want a way to make SMS messaging a little more personal? Then look no further than ChatPic, a jailbreak tweak that puts a little photo of your contact beside each incoming chat bubble.

Sure, there are many other apps that provide some variation of this premise, but if adding a smidgen of personalization to your SMS messages is all that you desire, then it’s hard to go wrong with this tweak…

Personally, I prefer BiteSMS to handle all of my SMS needs, and it too includes a somewhat similar flavor of adding contact pictures to your SMS messages. The only problem with Bite is that it’s a little on the pricey end of the scale, while ChatPic will set you back less than a dollar.

Of course, BiteSMS has infinite more options than ChatPic, seeing as ChatPic is only a tweak, and not a full fledged application. Hence, you will have no settings to tinker with; it simply pulls your contact images into your chat window, and nothing more.

One of the caveats to ChatPic is that it doesn’t appear to be compatible with third party SMS apps like BiteSMS or iRealSMS. But if you have those apps, chances are you won’t be needing ChatPic in the first place.

All of the aforementioned apps can be downloaded from Cydia, but as you probably know, your iPhone will need to be jailbroken in order to do so.

So, tells us about your SMS setup. Are you still rolling stock, or do you use a 3rd party app? Is ChatPic something you’d be interested in?
