    Love the updates, love this app. Have been using this app for well over 2 years. Cannot live without this app. When restore to a new firmware and J/B again it is the FIRST app that I reinstall. Great app.

    I used to use bite sms, UNTIL I switched to iRealSMS. Now I don’t have to read my new messages, my phone reads it for me. :) Oh, this feature also works over hands-free devices…

    I tried iRealSMS and although it does read your text messages it’s extreeeeeeeemly slow to load unless you enable background operation which drains the battery. For performance biteSMS is still the best and has more features then iRealSMS with the exception of the reading text messages.
