CyanogenMod introduces new native Quick Message options

CMXQuickMessage - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereWhile we were away for Labor Day, the CyanogenMod team announced that it was integrating some neat new enhancements to its SMS application.

The new SMS application lists these new features:

  • Display pop-up Quick Message dialog when message received
  • Multi-message support with swipe between messages
  • Reply to individual messages
  • Mark individual or all messages as read
  • “Wake and unlock” option when message received

Those features were merged into the Jelly Bean branch of code and should have made their way to the nightlies for your device by now.

A day after that announcement, with suggestions from users pouring in, it added the option to selectively launch quick reply from the notification bar.

For those who aren’t rooted, if you’ve ever wondered why so many people root and go to CyanogenMod, or any of the other numerous ROMs and third-party apps we’ve mentioned on this site, it’s developer responsiveness like that: taking a user suggestion on Saturday and incorporating it in their code and repos on Sunday to roll out probably on Monday.

It’s a pretty neat time to watch what CyanogenMod is doing since the migration to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, and how many devices it’s now available on, thereby kicking stock to the curb.
