    Default iOS 8 QuickReply mimics closely BlackBerry 10 QuickReply

    I just noticed the closeness of how the process works. Its very interesting how one operating system can mimic a completely different one to achieve the same goal.

    So what?? How many things could be identified about BB10 OS that resemble something that Apple did first?

    Good. I'm glad it mimics it.

    How the heck else can anyone make a quick reply without revealing a keyboard and text field? They're all going to look the same.

    To quote another poster in the CrackBerry Forums,

    I find the defensiveness towards posts like these interesting. Because we all have to admit that these things are starting to get ambiguous. Apple copied predictive text from the BlackBerry keyboard and BlackBerry copied probably how the icons are arranged on the homescreen.

    Actually blackberry only introduced pop up notifications in sept 2013. Apple had introduced it back in 2011 with iOS 5.

    This, in my opinion, is better. And if they did quick reply like BiteSMS then people would have gotten offended at that too. And possibly might have had to hire and pay that jailbreak dev.

    Yeah that would actually be predicament. Wasn't it Ryan P. the one who interned at Apple or worked there for a bit? Now that guy is like a god in the jailbreak community!

    Yes. I also remember Apple hiring someone from the jailbreak community for iOS 5 (I think). Can't remember exactly for what feature it was.

    It was for notifications. He made a JB app that was real good. Apple hired him and he help design apples notifications. Not sure of he still works there.

    It's similar to swiftkey, which is the same engine behind Blackberry's predictive text. And surprise surprise, it existed long before Blackberry used it.

    Can you please go back to your own sandbox and quit pooping in ours?

    I find it down right comical how the members over at Crackberry talk about how Apple steals this or copies that. Most of them don't even realize that BB took most of their features from Android and webOS.

    Lol, I know what you mean, It's anarchy over there.

    It doesn't really matter anymore.
    Blackberry is no longer competing and they barley have any subscribers anyway.

    I don't really care since I've been wanting this feature for a long time.
