    I would absolutely download it if the conversations were 2 slightly different colors to help differentiate between your SMS and the other persons'. That was the issue with my favorite theme for Bite and why I stopped using it.

    never found that a problem with any bitesms theme; i'm always on the right...simple enough.

    i like the chalkdark theme; only thing: the settings and 'write' icons upper right are kinda blacked-out. but overall, really nice, and am gonna make use of it...

    Off topic, what font is used in those pics? Also, what color keyboard theme is that?

    Looking good!

    Do these have winterboard dependencies or is it all enabled within bitesms?

    ----------

    Haha I have no clue how I missed this. Thanks for answering my question. Such a shame.

    The theme should not require winterboard. This is a problem that is only affecting Chalk Light for some reason. I am trying to sort it out just now.

    In the meantime you can download it straight from here and install it manually to var/mobile/library/biteThemes -

    Font is copperplate-light a standard font on ios6.

    Keyboard is a ck theme I am making atm, it will be available in the near future.

    I would even pay for it if the QR was kinda transparent, as biteLiquid is.
    I really like the White version but would like it even more in that case.

    Amazing work! Thanks for sharing.

    Edit:
    Also, can you resize the "Messages" box? It is huge.

    Thank you for the reply. So how do I enable this font? Does it only appear when coded to do so? Is there no way I can apply this font system wide? Thanks again. Keep up the great work!

    A transparent version is almost finished. :)

    And yeah, I'll update it.

    ----------

    If you go into the info.plist file and scroll down to where the fonts are named, you can change them to copperplate-light. There should be 3 font strings in total to change.

    As for enabling it system wide, I havn't been able to find out how to do it. There isn't a bytafont file for it or anything.

    It is one I am making, will be available soon.

    ----------

    I am making one for the stock messages app so don't worry.

    Some people don't like using winterboard as it can slow things down. It's also just pointless theming things with winterboard that can be easily themed without it.

    Ahh.. It looks like the "DASHING" theme I'm currently using. Can't wait to see yours. Example:

    Of course you're always on the right. But having 2 colors is incredibly important, at least for me.

    Also, a white keyboard would be awesome. I have been using "Angelic White ColorKeyboard" lately. :D
