Are you one of those iPhone users who find it troublesome to launch the Messages application first and then replying to your messages? Imagine how convenient it would be to quick reply to text messages in iOS 7 right from your lock screen. While the functionality has yet not been added to the native iOS by Apple, we have a really useful jailbreak tweak for you which would make your task much easier.
Auki – Helps Your Reply to Messages from Lock Screen on iOS
Auki is the new jailbreak tweak which was first announced at JailbreakCon 2014, a conference for all iOS jailbreak developers where upcoming tweaks and apps are showcased. With a clutter free design, and neat interface, Auki takes quick reply to text messages in iOS 7 and quick composition to another level with stealth mode and silent mode in hand. Developed by Surenix and Benno, Auki integrates features stealth and silent mode with the default Messages application on your iPhone. For instance, simply swipe from right to left on a message like you delete it, and enable silent mode to mute a threat particularly. This enables you to silent a particular group of messages while keeping other messages intact.
While stealth mode when enabled lets you type, without the other person getting to know that you are actually typing. i.e, it disables now typing notification for iMessages, hence the other person never gets to know if you are actually typing a message. Being a complete Message app replacement tweak, Auki has succeeded in pleasing iOS users with its neat and well functioned elements. Here’s how to get Auki on your iPhone.
