    If you like the way that iOS 8 gives you larger thumbnails for media sent to you in the Messages application by way of SMS or iMessage, then you might enjoy a new free jailbreak tweak called BigBubbles by iOS developer Sticktron.

    This tweak forces all inbound and outbound file attachments in the iOS 7 Messages application to appear as larger thumbnails, giving you a much larger preview image to see. You can still tap on them to make them go full-screen as usual. The tweak will not affect regular text message or iMessage bubbles only the ones that contain media, such as photos or videos.

    BigBubbles is an open source jailbreak tweak, so if you're interested in learning about what makes it tick, you can head over to GitHub and view the tweak's source code here's a direct link.

    The tweak does a really good job of making your attachment bubbles in the Messages application look like those in iOS 8, so if you're looking for this kind of functionality, this tweak is a great road to go down.

    If you would like to give BigBubbles a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now. iOS 7 is required for the installation and there are no options to configure.
