A new beta of BiteSMS 3.1 has been released in the cydia repository of BITESMS. Version 3.1 adds a whole list of new features and fixes some bugs users reported on biteSMS 3.0. Hit the break to see the full list.
- Added support for language translations in Quick Reply.
- Quick Reply is much improved, including scrolling for long messages. http://i44.tinypic.com/o109sl.jpg (sendingâ€¦you can see both received text & reply)
- Added ability to long press the â€œSendâ€ button in Quick Reply to switch between Carrier and biteSMS (only when button is active).
- We now disable the Quick Reply â€œSendâ€ button during the sending process, see http://forums.bitesms.com/forums/1/topics/630?pâ€¦
- Added new settings icon on the conversation list screen, and removed the little blue arrow settings icon.
- Added new â€œAbout >â€ page on the settings screen, shows Version, License, Legal, Change Log, Features Help, Contacts (count), SMS Conversations (count) and Messages (count).
- Fixed smileys layout issue (only applies for certain langauges), see http://forums.bitesms.com/forums/1/topics/590:#…
- Fixed smileys issue, where if you forward a text with a smiley it thinks itâ€™s an emoji (so distorts character counter).
- Fixed smileys issue, where if you enter the ASCII for a smiley like :-) then rotate the screen, it thinks itâ€™s an emoji (so distorts character counter).
- Fixed the Settings->Privacy screen to automatically size the borders according to the help text (currently truncates the help text for some languages).
Still being worked onâ€¦..(but we thought weâ€™d put out a Beta for the above in the meantime)
- Conversation list â€œText Messagesâ€ title in some languages or if unread messages overlaps the new settings icon
