    Great point. Unfortunately, with the announcement of iOS 8, comments about similarities and copying other OS's are going to be saturating the forums.

    Just found out the look of quick reply depends on if you have notifications setup as banners or alerts. I briefly changed mine so I could get a screen shot

    I dont know why but I really like this more than the other way. ChompSMS has it like this for quick reply on my Nexus. For full touch phones this at least to me seems more- correct

    Blackberry did not invent QuickReply. A lot of bb users would know that if they used/tried other platforms. I'm pretty sure that there are a ton of threads on cb spreading incorrect information regarding the added features to ios...

    The way it works or displays. WebOS created the banner concept. Quick reply from the banner though is more BlackBerry.

    And why shouldn't they? Why let good features go to waste on an irrelevant and dying platform?

    Actually if we're going to play that game android and Windows phone had that long before blackberry got predictive suggestions and blackberry predictive suggestions were licenced by swiftkey the 3rd party android keyboard.

    Windows phone had pop up quick replies before blackberry,cyanagen mod and other custom android roms had quick replies before blackberry too.

    Blackberry 10 was nearly a 1:1 rip off of meego and webos

    It makes me laugh how users at crackberry and the op who's come over here to cause trouble are going on like BlackBerry invented these features first when they're notorious of ripping features from other operating systems themselves since os10 came out. They didn't invent them or improve them but Apple has really polished them and turned them into fully functional features I wish android would implement.

    It's funny how when it's blackberry the defence is 'oh everyone steals from each other no big deal how different can you even make a feature?' But with this Apple release its suddenly blackberry invented this and that (when they didn't) and Apple are disgusting for copying.

    oh awesome! i was actually wondering why apple didn't instill this feature on iOS 8. turns out i had banners on the entire time. switch my messages to alerts instead how fun.

    has anyone tried testing it with Facebook? is the Like and comment boxes on there?

    That's a bold faced lie.
    I maintain blackberry stole the concept from apple's jail breaking community and I'm not the only one.

    I'm thinking that all OS environments will have similarities. It would seem that to make devices more functional, you'll definitely run into this quandry.

    That looks more like BiteSMS, which in my opinion is a good thing

    Blackberry is no longer competing and they barley have any subscribers anyway.

    Despite the IOS implementation.. when using banners looking like the BB10 type.. BB did not start this. Also.. BB did not get it from android or Windows phone either. I have no idea who started it but if anyone of you used the old BB's.. you'd know that this was available when you used the third party SMS app namely CrunchSMS (which is probably the same team that offer ChompSMS). Also, the BeBuzz app used for LED notifications also provided this functionality in old BBOS phones for texts, emails, facebook, twitter, whatsapp etc.. (you couldn't reply in this one tho.. just the toast notification). Then you had a few other apps that provided the same functionality like Advance OS & LED that also allowed you to reply from any app.

    Having said that, there's only so many ways you can implement the quick reply feature so I think the OP is way off in trying to insinuate that Apple stole it. Plus.. I'm a hardcore BB user but, my wife uses the Iphone 5s too and they're both fantastic OS's. Some might disagree but I can't find one thing on either phone, that is so much better than the equivalent on the other enough for me to say one phone is outright better.
