How Messages++ Works
Messages++ Cydia tweak brings advanced enhancements and features for the native Messages app. It is developed by tweak developer r00tdvd.
Messages++ focuses primarily on integrating social apps within the Messages app. It also adds several quick shortcuts to actions that are frequently used by every user.
Want to start a video call with one of your contacts? Done. Want to check out the latest tweet on your friends’ Twitter handle? Just press the Twitter button. It really is that easy!
Here’s how the tweak looks like in action.
Social Network Integration
Here’s the complete list of social networks this tweak supports –
- WhatsApp Message – Send a message to a contact.
- Skype Message – Send a message to a contact.
- Twitter – Open the Twitter account of a contact.
- Facebook – Check if a contact is on Facebook.
- Skype Voice Call – Start a voice call with a contact.
- Skype Video Call – Start a video call with a contact.

All these Settings can be configured using its comprehensive Settings section.
Download Messages++ Tweak
The developer also intends to add additional features such as Viber/WhatsApp calling in the future versions. Messages++ also offers good backward compatibility.
However, at $4.99, it’s a bit too expensive for most users. At this price, I recommend you purchase this tweak only if you want its functionality. Had the developer priced it at $2.99, it would have been a great purchase.
Messages++ is available for download on BigBoss Cydia repo for $4.99. It is compatible with iOS 8, 9, and 10.
Here are some Message Cydia tweaks –
- Kairos 2 – Simple Message Scheduling for iOS 10
- Disk Pie – Interactive Way to Check Disk Usage
- Callisto Pro – Use Time as Passcode
