Reply To WhatsApp Message From Notification Center Messages

One of the famous applications which is generally used by most of the users on a jailbreak iPhone is Bite SMS, but now when users have almost stopped using SMS and most of the texting part has been replaced by an application named ‘Whatsapp’ on Symbian, Windows Phones OS, Blackberry, Android and iOS. Due to this reason Bite SMS has almost stopped playing its role on iPhones these days. One of the major advantages of using BiteSMS is that you can reply to any SMS which gets popped up on the screen without going to that application (which takes some time).


But now BiteSMS has released their support for Whatsapp messenger also, once you install this application on your jailbroken iPhone on the settings screen you will see a feature for ‘Whatsapp’ which can be downloaded and installed. Whenever, a new message of ‘Whatsapp’ will pop-up on your screen you will see a little different and you will see them as mentioned below. It will be exactly similar to the way SMS were received on your phone and notification will be scene on the top of the screen where battery percentage and alarm icon are displayed.


From that pop-up window, you can either go the main application or close that message alert window or mark it as read it later or you can reply to that message in that pop-up window only, apart from all its pros there might be certain cons which you may face, for example you might end up losing chat history from your ‘whatsapp’ application and there will be no pattern of losing the data of chat history, other con may be its interaction with the notifications which gets popped up when a new message arrives on whatsapp, for example if you reply a message after 5 or 6 new messages then all the new messages will not disappear from the screen (some of them will stay on the screen).

If you want to install the application then you will have to go to the settings page of BiteSMS, but at the time of uninstallation you will have to search for this package directly on the ‘Cydia’ packages and then uninstall it from there. This application has been tested on iOS 5.1.1 on iPhone 4, please let us know if you face any problem while using it.
