    RealQuickSMS also known as iRealLITE is NOW AVAILABLE!!
    For those of you who dont know anything about this new iReal product, it is not a full SMS application like iRealSMS. It is made to fill a gap, for those people who just love the reliability and speed of the native Apple SMS app and just want the convince of iRealSMS' amazing QuickReply and QuickSMS features!!

    For those of you living under a rock, whom may be wondering... what is QuickReply and what is QuickSMS??
    QuickReply is a special plugin that allows you to reply to a new SMS right from the onscreen popup, so you do not have to exit your current application to do so! This also gives you the option to CALL the contact instead of reply via the CALL button. It also lets you know how many total message you have waiting via a ghost image within the text field. As you can see from the pic, there are a total of 6 SMS message. Now you can either answer these or close these one by one... but if you dont have time to do so, dont worry... you can easily press the HOME key on the phone and it will CLOSE ALL the messages and keep them marked as UNREAD so you know exactly which messages still need your attention!

    QuickSMS is also a special plugin that allows you to compose a new text message to anyone from any application! This also doubles as a QuickCall feature, which utilizes your contact list in conjunction with its predictive text filter to narrow down your contact list as you type. So you no longer have the need to really enter the Phone or Text app in most cases!

    This app is compatible with the native Apple SMS app Here are some teaser pics of all options and settings! The pics are pretty self explanatory as to the functions available.
    This is the main menu:

    Awesome. TBH, the main reason I got iRealSMS was for the QuickReply feature so it's pretty cool that I can use the standard SMS app and get QuickReply & QuickSMS.

    Oh and the double-tap home button shortcut is awesome. Thank you!

    Doesn't play nice with biteSMS quick reply. If you disable the ireal QR it hangs the notification on the springboard till you lock then unlock phone. But if you just use the ireal QR no problems.

    If you want to use biteSMS' quickReply you can turn on compatibility mode(but may give you a 2nd popup, but wont freeze your system).

    I still believe that our QuickReply although posibbly not as visually pleasing to you, has better functionality.

    1) With BiteSMS, if your phone is locked and you recieve a text, you have until the screen goes dark to acknowledge it(unlock) or else it will cancel and dismiss the quickreply... so you will have to enter the main app to reply... iReals quickreply does not. If you dont have time to answer, dont worry. It will be there whenever your ready to answer it, and you dont have to launch the main app to do so.

    2) BiteSMS wont allow you to have multiple SMS message waiting for you in quick reply because of the behaviors explained above. Ours will, and ours will tell you exactly how many SMS messages you have waiting.

    3) Now lets say you have 8 unread SMS messages waiting for you in Quickreply and you really dont want to see them, you just want to make a phone call! What do you do!?! Close them one by one? That could take forever!! NO OF COURSE WE WOULDNT DO THAT TO YOU@ ;) You have the option to CLOSE ALL with the press of the home key, which will close all your quickreply messages and mark them as UNREAD so you know exactly what messages still need attention.

    We have other features planned for future updates so if the items listed above doesnt get you to use our quickreply(or at least try it for a couple days) then Im sure in the future we can change your mind...

    Note that with the purchase of iRealQuickSMS, if you should decide that you want to upgrade to the FULL iRealSMS app(we have things planned for that too), you will have an upgrade option(just pay the difference).
    Thanks for trying our product, I hope your satisfied and decide to purchase!

    Glad you guys like it! We enjoyed making it. FYI the main iRealSMS app will get upgraded with the same options in settings. So you can use the stock app, but still have iRealSMS app just in case you wish to utilize its functions.

    I installed it, and sent a test message using quickSMS in demo mode - I went into the main SMS app, and the entire thread with the contact I sent the test message to is gone. Is that what's supposed to happen?

    I don't mind the way it looks. I like the way you can scroll thru the bitesms QR stacked lines. Not one long line of text. I am using the ireal QR and haven't had any issues. I'm sure it'll grow on me.


    Try it heck, I already bought it. :)

    Its been fun and i appreciate the kind comments and support ive recieved on this site but keeping track of all these post from half a dozen different forms is very tiring and time consuming. We have finally launched our official support forum(not nice to look at but it works). Please join us here if you have any comments, questions, bug reports or just want to check in to see if anything new is confirmed in the works. It's been a pleasure.

    I do love this app..

    BUT... why can't i scroll through the quick reply windows if I have received multiple texts? I have to click "close" or "reply" to get to the next message.

    And why does it seem to break up texts even if they are less than 160 characters?
