A brand new jailbreak tweak has just hit the Cydia store called SMSmileys. This simple tweak brings real smileys to the native Messages.app and is available as a free download. Once you install the tweak on your jailbroken iPhone, your text smileys like :’) or <3 etc. will be automatically converted into more fun and colorful emoji version smileys.
With SMSmileys installed, you won’t have to pull up the emoji keyboard each time and tap a smiley icon to insert into your SMS. It’s simple, but quite handy!
You can install SMSmileys from Cydia via the Bigboss repo.
