SMS Helper Updates – Adds SMS/MMS Counter and Setting Options

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

##ICON_NAME## SMS Helper, a mod that counts the number of characters as you type a text messages, was recently updated to version 0.3, 0.3-1 and 0.3-2. The major update was 0.3 which adds a text counter and setting options.

The text counter is a new feature that counts the number of text message you have sent. The counter is based on the “standard” text length of 160 characters. Since the iPhone can send messages longer that 160 characters, the app will count any text over 160 characters as two text messages (or three, or four…). To view the text counter, just tap on the header in the stock Messages application. The counter can be manually reset from there as well. SMS and MMS are counted separately.

The settings for the app are located in the stock Settings application. The settings include two options; the ability to choose what day of the month you would like the text counter to be automatically reset and the ability to turn the animations on/off. One of the animations is the fun flip affect you get when the send button switches to the character counter or vice versa. If you turn the animation off, the character counter/send button will just switch in instead of flipping over.

The developer notes, “The counter might not be accurate, it keeps track only when the MS hook is installed and running. Also there might be unforeseen problems in the counting, so use it as an estimate and not an accurate reporting.”

You can get SMS Helper via the BigBoss source.
