biteSMS 3.1 Out Now

Author: biteSMS  //  Category: Apps

biteSMS v3.1 is out now. Here are the changes / additions:

  • Added support for language translations in Quick Reply.
  • Quick Reply is much improved, including scrolling for long messages.
  • Added ability to long press the “Send” button in Quick Reply to switch between Carrier and biteSMS.
  • We now disable the Quick Reply “Send” button during the sending process.
  • Added new settings icon on the conversation list screen, and removed the little blue arrow settings icon.
  • Added new “About >” 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 a problem for certain language translations).
  • Fixed smileys issue, where if you forward a text with a smiley it thinks it’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 it’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).
  • Added new feature to reset the Mobile Carrier sent messages counter on a given calendar day, or to manually set it.
  • Added support for calls from other applications to biteSMS via the protocol “biteSMS:number1,number2,number3 etc”, so that applications such as ABContacts or other Group type applications can now call biteSMS and specify multiple numbers.
  • Fixed up bubble width to be like the native Apple SMS application for short multi-line texts.
  • Added a “Smileys” setting to control if Smiley images should be shown instead of ASCII characters.
  • Fixed up various bugs and minor enhancements raised in the Version 3.1 Beta release (Quick Reply blurred text / scroll bar / edgy corners with artifacts) + (auto-correct settings not displaying) + (Compose New animation now like Apple one) + (Features Help / Change Log have larger font and display a busy loading indicator) + (improved settings icon and responsiveness and animation) + (Legal button pressed state display issue) + (business name now appears when choosing from contacts list) + (when adding multiple contacts to an SMS, the last location in the Contacts screen is now remembered).

    I’ve tried both biteSMS and iRealSMS, and biteSMS just “feels” better. Now with scrolling within Quickreply, it’s a killer-app. I was more than happy to pay for this app, for it truly made SMS-writing much more enjoyable! Great work!
