Do you think consolidating messaging apps into Messages would be awesome?

    Apple seem to be getting on the 'Consolidate' wagon, with Passbook, HealthKit etc


    When i go into emails, it's a consolidation of my multiple email accounts in 1 place. For example:

    User@Hotmail.com
    User@workcompany.com
    User@gmail.com


    I think it would be awesome if when we went into Messages, it was a consolidation of:

    iMessages
    SMS
    Facebook Messages
    Skype Messages
    Whatsapp
    Viber
    etc


    Who's with me on this?

    I think it would be even awesomer to just consolidate Mac OS, Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows 95, XP, Vista, UNIX, BlackBerry into a single OS.

    Hell no! Message app is for "real" messages. It doesn't need 3rd party sh** added to it. iMessage and SMS only. I don't even want the stupid voice texting.

    I think Windows Phone messaging is a lot like that - just FYI.

    Obviously you would have the 'option' to add this, if you're an individual who doesn't use 3rd party apps then you don't have to include.

    Kinda like if you're on a work PC, you have all your work emails coming to that, at home on your laptop you can have your work & personal emails coming to that.

    All about options...

    I would actually leave Apple and hate every minute of it if they ****ed messages up this badly.

    No sh** you don't need to use it. But it's the whole idea of it. Apple shouldnt be promoting and working for the 3rd party messaging apps.

    Yeah here's a good rule don't ******* with it.
