You know how Apple’s built in SMS messenger is… well, kind of garbage? Meet BiteSMS, an app available only to users who have an unlocked iPhone 5. This sweet little number will allow you to reply to a text without having to leave whatever app you had going when that text came in—very handy. You don’t sacrifice any functionality (or eye candy, for that matter), since BiteSMS will display contact images as well as time stamps. You can’t appreciate how awesome it is to not have to leave your current app just to do something as simple as reply to a text message until you try it.
Do you like infinite customization options? Does the idea of issuing voice commands to your phone sound like a science fiction dream come true? In that case, you’ll love VoiceActivator. This app works alongside the regular Activator app, and allows you to easily configure just about any action to happen with a voice command. For example, you could say “Google” and Google would load in your browser, you could say “Calendar” and your calendar would launch. Useful and pretty darn awesome.
The “sexter’s” dream come true: finally, an app that lets you take pictures with only one hand! Instead of having to use the shutter button on the screen, you can use either of the volume buttons on your iPhone 5. In all serious, it CAN be a real pain to have to hold your phone up, focus on what you want to take a picture of, and then tap the right place on the screen—often resulting in blurry pictures, or whatever you wanted to take a picture of is already gone by the time you get into position. This surprisingly simple app is awesome, and you can only get it if you’re jailbroken.
