    Hello everyone

    I was very excited about interactive notifications feature in iOS 8.
    But I am disappointed to still not find any mainstream 3rd party application supports it.
    Are developers concerned about usage time of their app once they support it ?

    Same here. Hopefully, they simply need more time and will eventually get round to supporting it.

    Most of the apps I use that would benefit from it (various messaging, email apps mostly) already support it. Keep in mind that while apps can add buttons, they are not able to offer the in-notification reply field as this is not available to third-parties.

    Only Skype in my app collection supports it.
    What apps you use ?

    A few I would like to see:

    1) Wordpress app - let me approve comments from the lock screen
    2) Mailbox - archive or delete mail from lock screen

    Would really help streamline my work as a teacher.
