    In the notifications pull down... It's awesome you can view notifications easily now without switching apps... But then you STILL have to switch apps to respond... For SMS and emails they need to implement a quick reply system from the notifications pull down.. Thoughts?

    My only thought is: I honestly cannot believe Apple will not just buy out biteSMS and allow their programmers to work for them.

    It's that good. It's just...sensical. It works. It's total "Apple" philosophy. BiteSMS does what the messages app should have done since the original iPhone came out years ago. And yet even in iOS5 "messages", one of the most used forms of communication available today...will be light years behind. It sucks. And it's one of the ONLY reasons I jailbreak, too.

    I absolutely could not agree more. At all. In the least. :D

    Now cue the "I never send text messages" crowd to come in and clutter the thread with their useless replies. Seriously...I've seen a few "we need quick reply" thread in the last few days, and there's ALWAYS someone that comes in and feels the need to post that.

    Guess what? I don't use MiWi. I've never once teathered with my phone. I also don't use WiFi Sync. But those are obviously HUGE jailbreak apps that tons of people have purchased and used. But you don't see me posting non-contributing comments in those threads, so why do people feel the need to do it to the "quick reply" threads lately?


    But yes, Apple needs to integrate quick reply into iOS5 before the release. Remember, we're only on a developer beta 1 right now, so there are lots of things that will be tweaked and added before the final release. I would hope they would listen to their customers and read through forums such as this to get an idea of what the "little people" would like in their iPhones. And quick reply seems to be a huge one.

    That's just it - well, not it, err...something it, about how I don't understand why Apple would not add this functionality into their devices.

    Even if you AREN'T a uber-l33t-ZOMG text-messaging freakazoid, you still see the effect of in-app quick replying. So many other phone operating systems have it. It's downright illogical to have to switch apps to reply to a text message. What is the point of the new notification center if you still have to bring that menu down/up by sliding, then find the text and slide on that, to 'instantly' bring up the app?
