Some SMS and iMessages are better (or more important) than others and really worth saving. Just like a website, or a song, it totally makes sense to be able to add them to a custom favorites list. iOS doesn’t allow you to save specific text messages and iMessages on iPhone, but there’s a cool jailbreak tweak called SmsSave which lets you do this.
The tweak lets you save any SMS or iMessages to be easily accessed and viewed later from a dedicated location in the Messages app.
SmsSave practically adds a ‘Save’ option to the Action menu accessible by tapping and holding on a certain iMessage or text message. By the way, there’s no limit as to how many messages you can save.
In the Messages app main window, simply tap on the star button located in the top-right corner of the screen to view your list of bookmarked messages. There, you can swipe any message to the left and select Delete to remove it from the list. To see the recipient or sender (depending on the case) for a saved message, just tap on it.
A particularly useful option is the ability to view all the saved messages for a certain contact. You can do this by tapping on the Details button of the conversation and all the saved messages that include the selected contact will be shown at the bottom of the screen.
SmsSave is a useful tweak that lets you create a custom list with important messages and see them all in one place, instead of endlessly browsing through conversation threads to find a specific one.
If you have a jailbroken iPhone, the tweak is really worth a try, especially since you can get it for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repository and it provides a very convenient way to save specific text messages and iMessages on iPhone.
