    Well the whole point is so you don't have to use multi tasking you just click reply type then send eliminating the extra move by moving from the message app to the one you were in
    Yup, exactly. I hope this feature comes to iOS 7! If it does I can look past the yucky icons :P

    Is there any way to change the color of that black banner? It looks so obtrusive. I wonder why they didn't give any gradient or translucency for that...

    Yeah, it does look like a qr could come in a future beta release! Gimme that, and a dark theme, and I would be the happiest jailbreaker running stock you'll ever find

    With full multitasking, you don't need to have this quick reply option. Just go into your messages, reply, and go right back where you were. Nothing has stopped or changed. And since you can now just swipe to get back and forth between apps, it should be very fast and easy. So your desire to have a quick reply for messages is needless.
    Regardless of how fast it is, it will still feel wrong to me to be pulled out of an app (and then have to launch the multitasking UI to return to it) just to reply to a message--especially when it happens repeatedly in the course of a conversation. It's not about whether or not anything has "stopped or changed," it's about creating a fluid user experience. The current method adds unneccesary steps/clicks/taps to what should (in my view) be a momentary interaction.

    I'm hoping it gets added to an update sooner rather than later.

    Here you go.

    The notification will just abruptly slide down from the top, last a short while, then slide back up. Very 'in your face', and (ironically) not as subtle as the way the banners would roll in for IOS6.
    That looks really bad. I hope this isn't their intent....
    Far from the elegant look that Apple is used to presenting.

    I found one such feature and it is actually on ios 7. In mail there is an option now to mark all, then mark as read. A mark all as read option to me is pretty substantial but that wasn't mentioned at all.
    Yeah that is a wanted feature. I'm not sure if I would call it a UI type feature that quick reply would be but that is something interesting that they neglected to mention when highlighting the new mail app. Good find. Thanks.

    I like it better than the current implementation. I think the current notifications are awkward looking. Having something rotate in using the same screen space as whatever app you are using has always seemed clumsy. At least with iOS 7, as was described, it slides down over the app which would be consistent with creating layers throughout the OS. Its not perfect but its better. Of course if they don't add quick reply or some actionable quality, there is no need for the size of the notification.
