Message Icons: Compose New Mail And SMS Directly From Your Home Screen

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could compose a new mail or SMS message with the touch of a button? Well now you can.

Introducing: Message Icons, a jailbreak tweak that recently graced Cydia. It allows you to bypass all of the fluff, and get right to writing an email or SMS message.

It’s not the prettiest tweak in the world, but it’s most certainly functional. Take a gander inside for a visual rundown…


Message Icons places two dedicated app icons on your iPhone’s SpringBoard, each one allocated to a singular purpose.

The app icons themselves are quite ugly, but it’s nothing a quick UI refresh couldn’t fix in a future update.

If you want to try out Message Icons, head over to the BigBoss repo on Cydia, where you can download it for free.
