SafeTexting is a paid jailbreak tweak for iPhone and iPad that gives read receipt when you reply in iMessage and disable typing indicator.
Put yourself in someone’s position where they send a text message and the receiver read it but takes forever to reply back. That would either show that the recipient isn’t interested in you or is busy doing something else important than texting back. To avoid both of these situations, you would need a free jailbreak tweak like SafeTexting.
As described above, SafeTexting will only let the sender see the read receipt when you are actually replying back to them in iMessage. For example, a girl sends you a message and you read it instantly but reply back 30 minutes later. That girl won’t be able to know that you already saw her message, instead it will continue to say Delivered and will only change to Read at the moment you hit that reply button.
This tweak also provides the option to disable typing indicator, which means that whoever it’s that you’re talking to will not know when you are typing.
SafeTexting tweak for iMessage is now purchasable for $1 from the BigBoss repo on Cydia, compatible with iOS 8.
