It’s finally here. After what seemed like an infinite beta test, biteSMS 6.0 has hit Cydia for public download.

With it comes all of the features you’ve come to know and love, plus a few surprises and UI enhancements. Best of all, it’s a free download if you’ve purchased an older version of biteSMS. Check out our video coverage inside…

I think it’s safe to say that this is the best biteSMS to date. It was already a solid app before, but with the iOS 5 integration, it’s even better.

The UI enhancements will probably be a personal matter, but I think they are more than suitable. I especially love the new QuickCompose and QuickReply Notification Center integration, and the new ability to use the default Messages icon, and hide the stock Messages app.

Just a reminder, you must have a jailbroken iDevice in order to use biteSMS.

What do you think about the new biteSMS? Was it worth the wait? Would you recommend it to new users for $8.99?
