Bring iOS 8’s quick reply feature to iOS 7 with Interactive Message Notifications

Interactive message Notifications tweak

One of the most exciting new features iOS 8 brings is the ability for users to quickly reply to messages directly from notification banners. Users can simply pull down on a banner, type their reply and hit the ‘Send’ button without even launching the Messages app. Today a new Cydia tweak called Interactive Message Notification has been released that brings this iOS 8 feature to jailbroken iOS 7 devices. Although there are existing tweaks such as BiteSMS and Auki available that give the same functionality to iOS 7 users, this implementation looks closest to what iOS 8 offers.

The tweak integrates well with the existing look of the notification banners without making any visual changes to it. To reveal the typing field you can simply swipe down on the banner. There are no options to configure and the tweak places no icons on the homescreen. Although it is quite stable there are a few bugs that need to be fixed as pointed out by this Redditor.

Interactive Message Notification fully supports iOS 7.1.1, making it compatible with all iOS 7 versions. You can download this tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repo where it is available for $0.99.

  1. Great tweak, but please tell me how to get it for free or please tell any repo from which i can get it for free….


    1. You cheap fuck. It’s a dollar. Stop stealing tweak.s You’re the reason the jailbreak community it looked down upon.

      1. Yeah, and then you download a buttload of other tweaks costing ‘just a dollar’. I understand him 100%.

        Tweaks like this that barely fucking do anything are not worth a dollar.

        1. It’s the coders right to charge what he or she see’s fit for the work they’ve done on it. if you dont like it get a different tweak.

  2. You have to wait to get it for free till bite your apple or some other repo comes out with the free version of it.

    1. I think you receive an SMS and then pull down on the banner a bit. Not all the way, but a bit until a text box shows up.
