Don’t Forget About the iOS 8 Quick-Reply Box

I communicate primarily through text messages these days, as I’m sure a lot of you do. Prior to iOS 8, you had to actually go in to the Messages app in iOS to reply to a message. It may not sound like a major inconvenience but if you’re busy working in other apps, all the […]
