    How many of you biteSMS users switched to Auki? Auki looks like a pretty clean tweak and I'm thinking of making the switch when I start using iOS 7.

    I did, it all comes down to what featured you are looking for. QR/QC only? Auk I is perfect. If you want more, lots more, go with BiteSMS. Both work great at what they are each meant for, Auki is just much more basic.

    Yeah I thought that might be the case. I don't see any option for Auki to check past text messages in QR. However, biteSMS can be pretty buggy and lag a lot of the time.

    I've switched between the 2 quite a few times in the last couple weeks. After today's update with Auki I think I'll stick with Auki. I don't theme at all and it's very light weight. The only thing I miss is the status bar notification...

    Not sure I agree with this, no problems with BiteSMS for me, used it for years.

    I've had a few small problems in the early stages of the iOS "beta" *7 with keyboard being stuck but that's it.
    I am liking Auki. But just say if I had to pick 1 messaging app and didn't have the option of choice I'd pick bite.

    So, if you didn't address the message... Does it stay visible until you dismiss it? And if you choose to reply to it later would reply to a message through Notification center via Auki, correct?

    Yes, I use banners so accessing the notification center would be correct with Auki. That's the 1 thing to get used to instead of just tapping the status bar icon to popup the message with bite.

    I've made the switch to auki. Contact photos and quick reply are the only feature I use with bite, so it made sense to switch to this for me.

    It's the tapping the bitesms status bar notification to bring up the quick reply that I was referring. But thanks I forgot all about open notifier!

    Auki vs biteSMS

    The lock screen still doesn't dim after I slide to reply. Kinda mad I bought this. I like everything hing about this. Uninstalling for now. Messages tweak is still king of the quick reply tweaks.
