'Predicter' Notifies You When Someone Starts Typing an iMessage, Clears What They Type

Adria Ho

Have you ever wanted to be notified when someone starts writing an iMessage to you, or when the sender clears their iMessage text field? A new free jailbreak tweak called Predicter by iOS developer Itay Brenner will do just that.

According to the developer, the tweak can come in handy when you think you might have a secret or shy admirer. When the person begins typing an iMessage to you, you will receive a banner notification that says they have started typing (it shows their name too). If they’re shy, and they decide to clear their text field before sending you a message, the tweak will send you yet another banner notification that tells you they’ve cleared the text field.

Of course, with this functionality, you can see when everyone - not just your secret admirer - starts typing to you or decides to retract their statement... if they're using iMessage.

The tweak uses information from Apple's iMessage servers to notify you of these events, so it won’t work with SMS. The developer warns that because Apple's iMessage servers do not always notify iOS devices when a person begins typing an iMessage or clears it entirely, the tweak won’t work 100% of the time, but it will notify you whenever Apple's iMessage servers push information to the iOS device you have Predicter installed on.

The concept behind the tweak is pretty nifty. Predicter works on both iOS 5 and iOS 6.
