TypeStatus, introduced to the Cydia store during the iOS 6 jailbreak, is an extremely simple tweak that allows you to see when someone is typing an iMessage to you. Normally, you have to have the Messages app open to see the “user is typing” animation which indicates a reply is being typed by the person on the other end of the conversation. With TypeStatus, you can see whenever someone is typing back a reply from anywhere on your iOS device, or when someone has read a message you sent them.
Recently, the creators of TypeStatus, posted an update on their website regarding their plans for the iOS 7 jailbreak and their tweaks.
“We will be testing all of our tweaks and writing fixes for features that are broken by iOS 7. This also means that they will be updated to support the iPhone 5s at the same time.”
The devs have made TypeStatus now available on their Cydia repo in beta form. The most recent version number is 1.1.1 beta 4 as the company continues to work out bugs and fix a few known issues (listed below).
