Apple mentioned this new feature of ios8: "Extensibility There are thousands of new APIs for developers, and one of the most exciting of those was Extensibility. This feature allows apps within iOS 8 to share information with each other and with the Notification Center." Will this solve the default app problem? For instance, if I use the Gmail app for email, and I click an email link in Safari, it opens Apple's mail app. It should open the Gmail app because that's the one I have chosen for email. This is just one example but there are many other examples of such behavior in ios7, and it's infuriating.
