I don't think apple should give the tech away, but I do think that iPhone users do not realize that iMessage being limited to iPhones only negatively affect iPhone users.


I say this all of the time to my friends who only use iMessage. They get so bent out of shape when there is a non-iPhone user in the group text, or when they get our receive photos or videos "from a green message"... and then act like it's the person with the green message's fault.

No, the fault is with Apple and your desire to use nothing else but iMessage, the problem is in the mirror, NOT the person that has no other choice

I think apple is slowly realizing that being a services company is going to be more lucrative than being a hardware company as the tech matures. Hopefully they realize they can charge Android users for iMessage and create another revenue stream.


With Tim Cook at the helm they would try to sell it for $100 and most people would just download the hacked APK

Yep I use the web client of Messages all day long while working. My wife has to text from her phone. I wind up chatting like it's an IM and she gets annoyed

Shouldn't be that hard for Apple to set up a web client for iMessage for users.

This is pretty much what will happen no matter what they charge for it. Just the nature of Android. Apple also has no reason to do it currently, they aren’t hurting for business and I think they enjoy the iMessage shaming you reference. Would also be counter to their walled system, would be a big switch up for them.

Carriers need to get off their butts and all do RCS instead of letting Google do it, green bubbles wouldn’t mean as much.

re: do iphones not support swipe?
Yeah, I agree that apple never will. It's just funny to me that the people suffering from the "green bubbles" are the apple users themselves...

I used to tell people who would mess with me about having an Android, that the texts were blue on my end

Edit

Google is in a tough place with RCS, the carriers are dragging their feet while putting all resources into the 5g race. However, if Google implements it themselves like they did in Europe, apple is less likely to play along.

And of course it's the users who suffer

Honestly I can’t believe they aren’t rushing it here, more control over it.

I don’t think Apple cares about RCS. It keeps a distinct difference between communicating with fellow iPhones vs Androids. If anything they probably prefer it to stay the way it is. The people who complain about green bubbles amuse me though.

Same. I have a Samsung s10e but use Google Messages and use the web client from computers all the time. Home, work, work laptop, etc.

I’m sure it’s been said but you don’t need an app for it, it’s already built into iOS and turned on

iMessage is by far the best native messaging app available and one of the (if not THE) best overall messaging apps used today.

Your issue is that it's not available on Android, not that the program is awful.

I'm not saying it is awful, or agreeing with him.

But you just restated his point. He was saying it is awful because it is limited to less than half the US market. I don't think he meant the app itself was awful, as it's pretty much universally known to be one of the best messaging experiences

Yeah not sure how that wasn't clear. You are right, he just repeated my exact point.

re: do iphones not support swipe?
I quoted you and you said iMessage is awful.

iMessage is a great program for what I does. I was saying your issue shouldn’t be with the app itself.

re: do iphones not support swipe?
He gave the reason because of cross platform lack of performance. It’s a legit criticism of it. Green bubbles and all.

I wouldn’t label it the worst, I hate Facebook messenger probably the most. Why the hell did we need a separate app and try to lock down reading messages on mobile browsers.... Also screw people who use it, lol.

re: do iphones not support swipe?
But he clearly meant that not being cross platform was awful, not that the app itself was. Which is why you only quoted the first sentence in his post. Context matters

For instance, Google Allo was a beautifully designed app. But if was awful because no one used it.

Right or wrong, he is saying that any app, no matter how well designed, that limits itself to 48% of the market, is awful. I think it is an argument that shouldn't be immediately dismissed
