    One of the best features of iOS 10 is the new iMessage app. MacStories has a really good round up of some of the best apps and sticker packs that have been released:


    Over recent weeks, Federico and I have tested dozens of iMessage apps and sticker packs, exchanged hundreds of stickers, made interactive to-do lists, played games, edited photos, and much, much more. Some of the things we’ve tried are highlighted in Federico’s iOS 10 review to illustrate particular aspects of the Messages app, but we’ve seen so many interesting apps and stickers, we wanted to share them with readers in one place.

    I’m all about that Mario pack.

    I still can't figure out the thing with the long touch of the arrow button on messaging to make stuff bigger or how to do confetti. I feel old.

    Lots of bells and whistles on this update--still the only thing I'd update for is the ability to delete Apple-provided apps.

    Type something, hold the send button extra long. It'll pop up with options like "Slam" and "invisible ink". Up at the top there should be another option on the top right that says "Screen" click that and then you have full screen options like fireworks and lasers, etc.

    Hey now. Look at you. Way cool.

    I hate the update. Confusing as hell and ugly mostly. Music app sucks now.

    you might need to go settings -> general -> accessibility and turn off the reduce motion option

    if send effects arent working for you, you have to turn reduce effects off under your settings. it wasn't working for me either

    The new weekly playlists are cool though....but they didn't have to change the look for that to be true. I don't hate the new look, but it was fine before.

    The why not the how.
