Scott Hurff on the Improvements to Messages in iOS 8

Scott Hurff:

To me, this is the marquee improvement of iMessage, and the attention to detail blows me away. Not only is Apple making liberal use of new gestures here, it’s also embracing the radial menu effect while creating a new native iOS design pattern. Whoa.

Those radial menus are pretty cool (and seem designed for one-handed use). I also really like the new recent photo picker when you just tap the Camera button.
