After almost 7 generations of iPhone, and 7 operating systems as well from Apple, some things are still the same as they used to be in 2007 when iPhone was unveiled by Steve Jobs. Apple nearly changed every aspect of its iPhone, from the lock screen, to the new icon pack in iOS 7. But coming to think of it, there have hardly been any changes to the Messages application on iPhone. You still see the same old green and grey bubble boxes for incoming and outgoing texts, or grey and blue bubble box for iMessages.
Message Customiser is the new jailbreak tweak for your iPhone that gives you a break from your monotonous lifestyle by adding customisations to Apple’s native Messages application. We will talk more about the features right after we finish covering the installation part below.
