The native quick reply interface in iOS is useful because you can respond to several kinds of notifications from many different apps from almost anywhere in iOS. On the other hand, the Send button is in an awkward place, and that’s what a new free jailbreak tweak called Quick Send hopes to fix.
In the absence of biteSMS, Couria has historically stepped in to help fill the large void left by the once venerable quick reply and quick compose tweak for jailbroken iPhones. Thankfully, Couria is really good at what it does, and arguably better than biteSMS in some respects.
I really like Couria’s lightweight footprint. It’s fast, easy to use, and fits the stock Messages app like a glove. For these reasons, it’s hands-down the best way to use quick reply and quick compose with the stock Messages app.
Apple today released the iOS 8.3 software update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The software contains dozens of fixes and brings out a handful of feature enhancements related to Messages, Siri, the much enhanced emoji keyboard and more. Oddly, a subtle change to how Quick Reply and Notification Center handle messages with previews disabled aren’t mentioned in release notes.
That’s something I was alerted to by Twitter user @ericcamazin. Without a doubt, you’ll find these changes much welcomed.
