Compatible with iOS 7, 8, 9 and 10

Ever wish you could tell when someone else is typing an iMessage to you, or reading an iMessage you’ve sent, from where ever you are? With TypeStatus, now you can. The contact’s name will be shown on your device’s status bar, regardless of where you are in iOS. You can also use a simple status bar icon instead.

TypeStatus also allows you to enable or disable typing and read receipt notifications being sent to individual contacts. To access these settings, tap “Details” from your conversation in the Messages app.

Looking for more features, including support for more messaging apps, smartwatch integration, and Notification Center integration? Check out TypeStatus Plus!

For iOS 5 and 6, install TypeStatus 1 instead.
