    No quick compose/quick reply for texting is simply a ridiculously stupid oversight, and completely inexcusable. The jailbreak community has been doing this seamlessly since iOS 4 (that I know of; could have been earlier). How has Apple not realized the demand for this yet!?

    I don't understand.

    1. The iMessage app is very commonly on the shortcut bar at the bottom of the screen. Easier to tap there than to swipe down notification center.

    2. Notification center, one tap on the conversation you want o quick reply to, take you straight to that person in iMessage for you to reply.

    What are you talking abouT!?

    Look at IntelliscreenX's integrated quick message system, where you can reply to a text or compose one without ever leaving whatever app you're in. It just overlays the app, and disappears as soon as you either dismiss the text or send your reply. I don't want quick reply/compose to actually take me into the Messages app, I want it to just overlay briefly and then disappear once the message has been sent/dismissed.

    I agree, it would be nice to have the interface adapted for iMessage. It makes sense anyway. iOS 7? .... or jailbreak...

    Sadly, it'll most likely be just jailbreak. They've repeatedly ignored simple features like this and better group messaging/emailing, which leads me to believe that there's no hope in sight.

    Both of the things you describe involve leaving the app you are currently using, and switching to the iMessage app.

    App switching—at least on the iPad 3—is still very slow. Nothing like alt/cmd-tabbing between apps on a computer, there is a wait of several seconds before your app becomes responsive again.

    the instant text

    Having that shortcut in notification center would be amazing. Also customizable gestures and a DAMN power center to control connections/brightness.
