We’ve definitely all been in a situation where we have received a text message at an inopportune time; however, when we put our iPhones back in our pocket, or continue playing around in the app we were working in, we might forget to reply to the person that sent the message to us.
This idea by iOS concept designer Joshua Tucker
helps take this inconvenience into consideration, by integrating a reminder feature into the Messages application.
The way the concept works is when the user holds down on a text message, or iMessage, that they receive, the pop-up bubble won’t only say copy – it will also give the user a Remind option...
Tapping on the Remind button brings up an option sheet allowing the user to choose between being reminded of the text message after 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, or 1 hour. Alternatively, the user can tap on a cancel button to exit the share sheet, which will appear at the bottom of the list, to cancel the reminder.
After the user selects a time option, a reminder will be created in the Reminders application that actually reminds the user of the text message after the selected amount of time has passed.
According to Joshua, the concept (or a variant of it) may be a part of a future jailbreak tweak project with iOS developer Andrew Richardson
. If you want to get this functionality right now, instead of waiting, you can use the following package via GitHub (compliments of Jonathan Bailey
) and install it with iFile:
