There are many Cydia tweaks that let you send quick replies to text messages. However, many of them interfere with the functionalities of the stock Messages app. ImmediateSend is a new Cydia tweak that presents a pop-up whenever a message is received. This pop-up is displayed on the Springboard after tapping the banner notification of a received message, or an alert from NC. It’s a tweak that lets you reply with lightning speed.
It doesn’t change any Settings of the stock Messaging app, and you don’t have to go to the stock app to send replies. After downloading the tweak, there will be a menu added in the stock Settings application. This menu is very simple, with only one option to enable or disable the toggle for the application.
ImmediateSend can be tested by asking your friend to send you a text message. There would be a banner notification appearing at the top of the screen, and you can tap it to see if the tweak is working. You can also tap the message icon in the Notification Center, or if you’re on the lock screen, you can slide the message icon. The pop-up should be presented to you.
The tweak is smart enough to figure out the difference between an SMS and an iMessage. If you receive an iMessage from someone, you’ll get an option whether to reply as an iMessage or SMS. The ‘reply pop up’ box also appears when you’re sending a message through the stock Messages app.
The drawback is that you can’t view or send new messages through the tweak. It is only used to send quick replies to text messages. However, it comes with a ‘Go to MobileSMS’ button, which redirects you to the stock Messages app automatically.
ImmediateSend is available for $0.99 at Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Let us know if you try it out.
