    Anybody knows what interval does iOS have between stamping messages with dates and time? Is it fixed or random?

    not sure if your jailbroken you can download biteSMS which is an alternative to the native SMS app and it has time stamps on every message

    or 0 bucks if you can live with a small advertisment bar at the bottom of the screen

    I've got BiteSMS, but that's pretty much the only feature I require from it, I don't want have a whole app just for a little timestamp.

    Anyways, I've been testing and it's around 15 minutes between each stamp.

    The apple timestamp is pretty random.
    Sometimes it does and others it won't.
    Like others said BiteSMS is great.
    Once you use it and all it's features you'll love it and won't go back to the stock messaging.

    agreed ive only had it for less then a day and im blown away at how awesome it is, i always had the attitude that there was nothing wrong with the native sms app, but the quick reply and quick compose are 2 features alone that make this app far superior then the native app

    couldnt stand when i got a sms while doing something else ie safari or game and by replying it would kick me out of the other app


    im still on the 14 day trial but from what i read i can continue to use for free if i dont mind seeing the ads at the bottom, is this true or does the paid version do mroe then just remove the ads?

    They are the exact same aside from an ad at the bottom of the screen

    really, so those ads most be very inoying or people are more or less buy the paid version the same as if we would send a donation for a free one to thank the developer for making it

    honestly, the ad isn't that intrusive at all, but I'm just OCD like that in that if I'm going to use it as my default sms app (and I actually have hid the default icon using sbsettings) then i want an ad free experience on an app that i use 100+ times a day.

    Pretty much.
    The package is well worth it and the money keeps the developer improving and adding features.
    A must have JB app IMO.

    I honestly don't even recall how intrusive the ads were. All I know is that I love the app and that I have no problem paying $9 for something that I use so much on a daily basis. I can see someone not paying if they don't have the money or whatever but you are correct in that it's just like making a donation to the developer. These guys wouldn't have any incentive to improve the app if nobody paid for it so pay if you can. If not, I see no reason not to use ad-supported version if the ads don't bother you. Heck, they offer that option for a reason and it's not like you're stealing the app. I just prefer to not see ads on my phone.
