    During the keynote in June a feature was introduced to answer notifications without leaving an app.Im not sure though if it's active.Can anyone confirm it is?

    Pull-down the message for quick-reply. Click to switch app.

    Doesn't work until third party apps have implemented it (if the API is available???).

    From lock sceen or notification center swipe a notification to the left and use the reply option that should appear (for apps that support it, like Meassages for example).

    When I get a message on the lock screen how do I quick reply? If I slide the notification it just takes me to the app.

    Edit: Just found out you need to enable show preview and custom keyboards don't work. Bit annoying.

    Twitter have just updated their app to support this so it must be an API.

    Are you sliding it to the left (instead of right)?
