xMessages Adds Timestamps To All Your iPhone’s Text Messages

iOS (Jailbroken): One of the major annoyances with the iPhone’s default Messages app is that it barely shows any timestamps next to your messages. In previous iOS versions, you could long tap a message in order to see its timestamp, but with iOS 5 that feature is completely gone. If you’ve jailbroken your phone, now you can use xMessages to get this back.

xMessages adds a timestamp to every single message you send or receive, giving you the ability to easily see how a conversation is flowing and when a message occurred. If you’re already using the jailbreak biteSMS app, you can enable timestamps there, but if you’re still on the regular Messages app, this is a free way to add missing functionality.

As a bonus, xMessages also lets you put contact photos next to each conversation, which is useful for quickly scanning your list.
