Couria Beta for iOS 8 now available in Cydia, Quick Compose and improved Quick Reply to Messages

Couria is a quick reply and quick compose tweak for iOS that originally debuted back in the iOS 7 days. Today, the Messaging landscape for jailbroken devices is significantly different, with a key major player, biteSMS, now defunct.

The tweak takes advantage of the stock Quick Reply feature to integrate its new functionality. It lets you view the Quick Reply feature in full screen rather than as a text field underneath the notification banner. When you swipe down the banner to use Quick Reply, you can extend it further to view it in full screen where the complete conversation with the recipient will be displayed to you. You can then scroll through the entire conversation as well as reply back to the message directly from the tweak’s interface.

Another great feature of Couria is the ability to quickly compose a message from anywhere in iOS without being in the Messages app. It takes advantage of Activator gesture to launch it. After invoking Quick Compose, you’ll be displayed a list of all your recently contacted recipients.

Lock screen
Lock screen messages are handled in the very same way. When you reply, you see the full context of the conversation on your Lock screen. You can also use your Activator gesture to quickly compose directly from the Lock screen.

Although Couria is available as a beta package, it worked quite well. To install it on your jailbroken iPhone, you should add the following repo to Cydia: .
