    Messages, and I Love er… LOVE iRealQuickSMS. Bet $6 spent ever. It is so quick and convenient. My iPhone doesn't feel like an iPhone without it. I don't know how people can NOT have this feature.

    tlert

    I couldn't imagine my iphone without tlert. I text constantly, and being able to instantly reply to a text (even from my lockscreen) makes it the best device for me.

    iRealquicksms, can't live without it. I can reply within any app I'm running.
    No need to unlock to slide to reply to texts

    It's awesome!

    GriP allows the same thing. As soon as the alert pops up, touch the icon and the texting window springs open.

    Indeed, it does have great support and its an app that I love. I like the counter and the ability to quick-compose or quick-reply.

    I used and loved tlert until I discovered irealquicksms. I like it a little better, only because it allows for a "quick compose" window. If tlert implemented that, I'd switch back. But both are great apps :D

    While I use and love grip for other things, it's not really the same thing as these other texting apps. When you receive a text and click grip, it closes the app you're currently using and opens the default text app. You text. Then you have to close the text app and re-open whatever you were doing before.

    With any of the above texting apps, you can text from within any applications. You don't have to go through the default text app.

    GV Mobile with incoming sms forwarded to my gmail which then gets forwarded to my Me mail which is pushed. So I can instantly know when I get a sms and can even reply within mail app by selecting gmail acct to send.

    Tlert is way the 2 go

    I have use both iRealQuickSMS & Tlert. iReal is good bcause of the quick compose, ex. Volume up and touch. But every cracked iRealQuickSMS i've tried has always expired on me and when i go to text sum1 they reply back w/ "What???", bcause when app expires it leaves a message to the person your texting saying something like, "iPhone iRealQuickSMS Demo". So Tlert has seemed to b more dependable, but you can quick compose with Tlert only when sum1 has texted you. Hopefully they will fix this, bcause the text app takes to long to open up.

    iRealsms is great...

    gave them all a try and like this the best.

    Bitesms would be a close second.

    So, iRealQuickSMS is not as dependable because you stole it poorly? Stay classy. :rolleyes:
