@mbavio criticism is an important part of the creative process. In this case, this only offers one side of the spectrum of opinion on this debate. If you talk to product people in Asia they will argue that serving as many use cases as possible in a messaging app leads to the most engagement per day. They then try hard to simplify the workflows so that the user has access to many powerful use cases. Then, pursue continuous improvement of a complex system. The prevailing opinion in America is that serving a single use case is the right direction. For the most part, the American opinion is also that "innovation" equals new content formats. My thoughts on innovation in social in general are here if you are interested: https://medium.com/design-philos...

Thanks @mulligan really appreciate it. Our thought was that the places in your life are deeply intertwined with your personal relationships. After work, you head out to dinner with family and friends, being able to get a reservation quickly in real time just like sending a text seemed like it would save people time and give that time to hanging out in person.

This is absolutely amazing. TalkTo integration will be super interesting going forward. The quick reply use-cases are brilliant. Well polished. This is how you communicate a product update.

@adamevers we agree. We think the intersection of messaging and commerce is a huge opportunity, and mostly dark to the Internet right now. We do plan on providing a variety of interesting APIs here as well.
