Interrupt iOS Messages from Sending with SendDelay

Tapping the Send button accidentally can make for some embarrassing messages. Even worse is realizing as a message is being delivered that it's going to the wrong person. iOS has no way to stop the message or delay sending, until now. Enter the jailbreak tweak SendDelay.

iOS 8.1 jailbreak SendDelay stop send

Other tweaks such as DoubleCheck can help to reduce messaging errors, however SendDelay actually postpones message delivery. This creates a window of time during which the message can be stopped. As delivery is happening, the Send button actually turns into a Stop button, which can be used to stop sending.

Every message is actually delayed before sending to make this work, and the delay duration can be customized. Delay time can be set up to five seconds. While this doesn't sound very long, it can be just enough time to realize a mistake. A longer delay makes rapid-fire conversations less convenient, but that's the trade-off for a Stop button.

SendDelay is available from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for free. To start customizing iOS, click here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 8.1 with Pangu.
