    In regards to iOS 8, I would SO use a quick reply toggle… there have been times when I was inside an app and the notification banner just dropped down in my face, and I’d flick it up because I didn’t want to leave the application I was in, like if I was reading a news article in Yahoo’s News Digest or something to that effect. And in regards to OS X, I think AirDrop from a Mac to an iOS device is inevitable. I can’t tell you how many times I have emailed myself photos and documents. I just actually emailed myself a PDF study guide for my final tomorrow as opposed to just being able to click AirDrop and send it right to my iPhone. This would make the process much more seamless and productivity, because I know I am not the only one who desires quick reply (Bite SMS is evidence of that)… and I know there has to be some people who feel the same about AirDrop. Other than that, I can’t think of any other features that OS X could use besides that redesign which would be nice. But in iOS 8, more functions for Siri, an offline mode (at least for simple tasks like music, reminders, calls, texts, and so on), and an API would be fantastic. A expanded Today stream in the notification center would be great! A cellular data toggle in control center, along with more refinements would also be appreciated. I know quick reply is a possibility, and I know there are other important features that I may have skipped, but I feel that functionality is most important versus the novelty concepts or ideas.

    Apple is in the business of perfection. Everything they do is built on other peoples building blocks which they build on top of and improve. Like sèbastien said Apple didn’t invent multi-touch. They also didn’t invent the iPhones fingerprint sensor or invent the graphical user interface which they got off Xerox all those years ago…

    Apple is very good at acquiring the right tech and improving upon it, effectively mastering and perfecting the technology.

    As a college student, I feel a little obligated to defend Notability. I understand that it might not be the most aesthetically pleasing, but in terms of usability, it’s very full featured. I mean it’s the BEST out there for annotating pdf’s or taking notes for classes. I think you guys looked at it from a bloggers point of view, which I could see holds no place in your guys’ workflow, but it’s a really great app! Wish I was there to give it a little more justice. Side note, check it out on the iPad: it’s superb!
