Tweak iOS 8 Messages to Get New Features

The amount of great tweak iOS 8 Messages offered by Cydia store is huge. You can customize your iPhone the way you like once you jailbreak it. Luckily, the earlier versions of this mobile platform can be jailbroken with TaiG and PP Jailbreak. Apple killed the exploits used by these two tools in iOS 8.4.1 release. Users who accidentally upgraded can downgrade iOS 8.4.1 to 8.4 while the Cupertino-based giant is signing this platform version.

While it is not clear if iOS 9 could be jailbroken in the fall or sometime in winter [it takes hackers longer these days to develop and test the new jailbreak], a lot of users won’t hurry to upgrade to this OS while they are running iOS 8.4, 8.3 and earlier versions and have Cydia store on their home screen.

iOS 8 Messages Tweak Convos Features

If you wish to get more options for Messages on iOS 8 iPhone you can download one program from Cydia. It is called Convos and it costs $1.29 on the BigBoss repository. If you are ok with this price, install it on your iDevice to see what it offers.

Go to Settings where the new pane is available with extra options. You can configure the tweak and change your Messages interface. It’s pretty clear what the tweak can do since all the options have a description underneath.

It is possible to mark your messages as unread / read with a simple swipe gesture and pin conversations to let them stay at the top of your list. The fresh new appearance of the program also looks cute [you can change background colors, date labels and other parts of Messages with ease]. It is also possible to sort your conversations alphabetically and timestamp.
