TypeStatus Plus. The extension to the legendary tweak TypeStatus.
TypeStatus Plus can help you see who is currently typing a message to you, no matter what app you use. Whether this is WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, or even the default iOS Messages app, TypeStatus Plus supports all of these and more.
But, it does not end there. TypeStatus Plus has an API allowing developers to make "providers" to support any given app. With this addition, it is unlikely there will be an app TypeStatus Plus doesn't support.
With TypeStatus Plus, you will never be left without typing notifications. TypeStatus Plus supports the Apple Watch and Bluetooth Low Energy devices, such as the Pebble smartwatch. TypeStatus Plus deeply integrates with the Apple Watch, leaving you with a sleek interface to enjoy.
In your Messages app, you can always see who is typing. When you're in the conversation list, a typing indicator will conveniently be added to the given conversation. When you're talking to multiple people at once, this will really come in handy.
If someone is typing for a while, and you don't really know what's going on, you can always click the typing indicator in your status bar to open up the messages app to your conversation. There has never been a way to access the messaging from the typing indicator with such ease.
In addition, you can keep track of your unread messages. From the TypeStatus Plus settings, you can configure any app and the badge count for said app will be in your status bar at all times. If you don't have any unread messages, TypeStatus Plus will remove it from your status bar, leaving it clutter free.
You also will get notifications for when someone starts typing, so that when you're away from your phone, all of your TypeStatus Plus notifications will still be there. Now, you can always see when someone is composing a message to you.
We've put in a ton of work in to TypeStatus Plus. We hope you enjoy it.
