Instant Messaging Apps, Steal This Idea

0 comments suggest edit

I want an add-in to my instant messaging apps whereby if someone responds to a message by me with just the word “ok”, it doesn’t pop an instant message window if I’ve closed the window. Perhaps it can filter any messages with just the word “ok” and flash the system tray or something. Anything. Just don’t get in my way.

    MSN Messenger doesn't pop the window open, you get the "toast" notification with the first few words. It does create a new conversation window, but it stays minimized.

    I'm using the 7.0 beta, which also shows the last few lines of the previous conversation if you do open the window, which is great when you get a "Yes" and forget what that was a response to.
