So the other day I got a text from someone while I was using Safari. The message popped up and I read it but all I wanted to do was reply "Yah" but I didn't want to go to the Text app and then have to go back to Safari. Then later I downloaded a song from iTunes WiFi and when it asked for my password the keyboard with the translucent black background popped up along with a dialog box to input my password. I then realized that this keyboard should be accessible when you receive a text. Instead of buttons for "Reply" and "Close" they need to add a button that says "Show Keyboard" or something similar, so you can reply without leaving the app you are using. This would also be good when playing a game. Anybody else think this is a somewhat good idea?

That would be awesome. Having to leave the App you are currently in to go back to the SMS App to respond quickly and then go back to the initial App AGAIN gets very annoying. This happens all the time when I am on Safari or something similar and then start having a full conversation with someone. Good thinking Josh.

Great idea dude, it always takes at least 5 or 7 seconds for me to get to the text app while I'm on safari. This would be something to look forward to if it was in a future update, shouldn't be to hard to do either.

Thanks guys. Maybe they could also incorporate the landscape keyboard since all you are doing is sending a quick message you don't need to read other texts or anything like that.

Golden idea there, Josh. I'm really hoping Apple is reading this, since they're too snobbish to accept unsolicited product ideas.

I'm with you Psylicon we can only hope... This is a great idea by the way I'm always jumping back and forth and it gets time consuming.
