Oh dear, you can just drag and drop animated gifs into messages. This is going to be dangerous for me with some of my tumblr-enthusiast friends.

After the installation of the Messages app, is there any way to remove it?

Hopefully I have a setting wrong. But the imessages are only being displayed on Lion, they are not syncing to phone. Also even after i closed out of messages, the messages were still being sent to it. Anyone else noticing this as well?

Perhaps in the iMessage account it only has my email address not the phone number?

No it won't. I'm talking about when an iMessage gets sent as an SMS.

WRONG.

I feel this is paving the way for simultaneous iOS and OS X app releases. So one day you can do everything you need on iOS or OS X. In the future (20+ years from now) there will still be iOS and OS X (or it's successor) but both OSes will be able to do the same things. In their own unique ways of cause.

The whole work on something or play a game on one OS and later work/play more on the other OS to finish up what you were doing before is what Apple is aiming for in my opinion. It'll be big on the syncing up save files and preference files between the devices through the cloud. But that's the way Apple isa going in my opinion. And it is the right direction to take.

Yes, in "Messages" menu, choose "Uninstall Messages Beta".

One thing that remains very frustrating is how every device you have iMessage enabled on lights up and bleeps/vibrates when you receive a message.

The Mac version needs to have a status you can select that enabled only the Computer to bleep and notify, while the others receive in the background.

Would be great to save lots of battery life on my iPhone through the day while I'm at home, but that won't happen if it's lighting up and bleeping every time.

You're required to have 10.7.3. With all the glaring issues, I for one know that I am not upgrading to 10.7.3.

That's not a bad idea, except when you leave your computer and you forgot to switch off the "Don't send to my phone function". Yon won't be getting any iMessage until you turn it off again. Of course, I suppose apple could build in some auto detect function. Personally, doesn't really bother me that much, the when at home or in office the phone is always on charge anyways.

Does anybody else HATE this about iMessage?

When a friend iMessages me, the iMessage my phone number, NOT my Apple ID.

With Messages for Mac, you don't have a choice but to send from your Apple ID, creating two separate conversations or threads in Messages on iOS.

If you're iMessaging somebody on a Mac from your iPhone, and you lose your 3G or WiFi data connection (every so often you'll see that message that says "Sent as text message") you're screwed. Without a data connection, you can't reply to somebody using Messages for Mac, because it goes through the iMessage protocol.

Apple should find a way to integrate your phone number in iMessage for Mac (and iPad and iPod touch provided the user has an iPhone) so there are no double-conversations in the iOS version of Messages.

Hmm... I want my iPhone conversations and my Mac conversations to remain separate. I also don't want to IM a friend from my computer, expecting to have a long conversation, only to have those messages go to his phone. Does the iMessage app show you if people are online on their computers?

I use iChat a lot. A friend and I use the iChat theater function to stream movies and tv shows to each other. Can someone share with me if there's still something like that with this new iMessages for Mac? Thanks!
