Developer Dan von Tonder is working on a new feature for CyanogenMod 10. It’s called Quick Message, and it’s a notification tweak that makes it easier to respond quickly to text messages received on a phone running the popular CyanogenMod version of Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

CM10 Quick Message

Quick Message gives users the option of displaying a pop-up dialog when a new SMS message arrives. This lets you read messages as the appear, and type a response right away.

You can switch between multiple messages by swiping, or mark messages as read from this view.

If you prefer to see your message notifications the old-fashioned way, in the notification pull-down tray, then you can disable pop-ups. That will bring some of the Quick Message functions to the notification tray by adding a “quick reply” button below an SMS notification.

The new SMS features should start appearing in the nightly builds of CyanogenMod 10 soon. These are pre-release versions of the operating system compiled each night.

Since CyanogenMod 10 is still in the early stages of development, there may be bugs in nightly releases — so proceed with caution.

You can find a list of supported devices and information about installing the operating system at the CyanogenMod website.
