    I'm thinking about buying irealSMS but I want to know if a new SMS notification shows up on top of the app. I ask this because when I had biteSMS I would only see the notification above the default SMS app which was useless b/c I had to keep it on my home screen. Does irealSMS work the same way or does it show a notification above the app as well?

    Yes it does that, and you can set it to put a taskbar icon there as well.

    Bah, I hate that App. It screwed all my SMS up, resulting in me having to wipe all of my SMS off the phone. I'm now using the normal Text app again now, iRealSMS isn't worth the time downloading it, never mind the cash.

    Really REALLY dumb question.
    What does mySMS offer that the regular SMS app doesn't?

    Forwarding SMS messages
    landscape typing
    Themes (which you can do with winterboard on the standard one too)
    encryption if you want it
    erase individual messages instead of an entire conversation

    I have irealSMS and I like it, the only thing I don't like is that the notifications do NOT show up in the status bar... neither on the irealSMS icon... they just show up when you open the app, that's when the status bar as well as the irealSMS icon show up like a "2" for 2 unread sms.... I don't know if this is colliding with StatusNotifier, but this is what's going on for me so far... and I don't like that

    Hasn't iReal got its own notification icon setting?

    Yes it has, I tried disabling SMS notification on StatusNotifier, but it only shows up when I open the irealSMS app... the only icon that shows regardless is the "sending sms" icon...

    I just received 3 sms, closed the pop-up, and no notification on the status bar and on the iReal app... I open the app, then close the app, and the icon shows up on the status bar and on the ireal app... wtf? I might as well go back to the original SMS app... the status notifier should work either way... since I just have the original SMS app hidden with sbsettings...

    I have noticed a few odd things like that. The author has promised an update soon so hopefully the notifications will be fixed.

    Yeah... meanwhile I removed the app and got back to the original SMS app, and the notifications work nicely now... as soon as I respringed an SMS Notification showed up on the status bar because of StatusNotifier

    It's in Advanced Settings

    It has the notifications, you just have to change some default settings:

    launch iRealSMS > Settings > Advanced Settings >

    SMS Alerts > ON
    Enable Quick Reply > your choice
    Mark always as read > OFF
