    Hey guys -

    Now the Quickreply has been made free and there will be no more updates to it, the creator is issuing refunds. This announcement can be seen on the quickreply cydia page.

    Have you sent your information to the creator for the refund yet? He needs cydia account, paypal email and your UDID.

    Im just making sure everyone put in for their refund (if bought within 30 days) and wondering if anyone has received it yet.

    WTF? I was hoping he would fix all the bugs and have it work right like back in the 3.0 days.
    So he's done?
    I don't care about the $3-4, I just wanted a good quickreply solution.
    What other options are out there with similar type of app? I don't want to replace the whole messages system.
    Just something to respond quick without 100 options or settings.

    QuickReply works 100% of the time. What bugs are people complaining about? Infact, I'm exceedingly happy about my purchase of this. It's the best JB app I have.

    Fixing to reinstall to see how far he had gotten with it. The dev said it needed a complete rewrite and he asked on twitter about a week ago if people would pay for a new version that was a complete rewrite. After that he said he was done with it and focusing on App Store apps.

    you can install BiteSMS and use the quick reply only, and keep your stock SMS.app. there is a setting to tell BiteSMS if you want it to replace the stock app or not.

    Cool, I'll give bite a try.
    The only thing that did not work on 4.0+ was if you got 2 or 3 texts you can't open them and reply to them one after the other on the lockscreen or anywhere for example. But have to go into the stock messages to view and reply cause if you double tapped nothing happened. Let me know if this feature worked on anyone else and maybe not on my phone.
    Also no load earlier button any more.

    I'll pass on the refund. The developer put in the work to create QuickReply, and I got fair use out of it after I bought it, so he owes me nothing.

    Hmmm is tlert really as good? I don't care about the refund... but I do want a good "quick-reply"-like solution... I wish he would have just open-sourced it

    After he updated for 4.0 which broke it for 3.x.x for a time it never worked the same for me. I would have the same issue as applejuiced mentioned above among other issues including regular safe modes sometimes 2-3 per day. I'm happy just using the stock SMS app. After that I started to streamline my jb apps and all is well.

    I used quick reply on the Iphone 4 and it has been great for me....Only issue I've ever notice is if i get like 4 txt msgs in a row sometimes it will freeze on lockscreen... but thats a very rare occurrence. I won't be requesting a refund... i've gotten enough use out of it already for the small fee he charged..and i don't anticipate it messing up randomly now...

    I really have no idea how tlert compares to the others, but I do know it works for me.

    If I get a text, it pops up on whatever screen I am on (toggle for lockscreen).

    I can quick compose using button combos, and I can reply 1 line, or using the other button that popsup, reply in a conv-style thing.

    The others, if I understand, have more fluff, which I am not interested in.

    Keep us posted on tlert because I was really hoping to get QR when I got the i4, I'm really sad he's not updating it anymore.

    You know what I gave bitesms a try and I am amazed.
    Im never looking back.
    BiteSMS got the same quickreply features but with tons of other options and alot more customizing.

    I was going to recommend bitesms but it's tough to convince people that they need anything more than a quick reply option. I was stubborn at first and I bought irealquicksms because I decided I didn't need the full-blown irealsms program. When they stopped development on irealquicksms and they upgraded me to irealsms for free, I was still stubborn and kept using the stock sms app (only used irealsms for the quick reply/quick compose functions). When I finally decided to try the full irealsms program, I couldn't believe what I was missing.

    Then I got my iphone 4 and really missed irealsms. When I was finally able to jb, irealsms was a bit buggy so I tried bitesms. Bitesms is even better than irealsms and it's cheaper! There are a couple features that it lacks but they are constantly updating the app and those features will be added shortly. Plus you can use it for free if you don't mind looking at ads (I hate ads though so I just bought my license since my trial expired today). Well worth the $8.99.
