Did Apple steal iMessenger from Vaughn SIMON?
iMessenger was an app in the app store a long time ago, all the way back in 2009 and has been updated numerous times.
In fact, this is from the app page on apple.
WHY IS IMESSENGER BETTER THAN OTHER SOLUTIONS?
RAPID MESSAGE STATUS. No more wondering if your message arrived or if your friend read it. iMessenger’s “Rapid Message Status” presents a “D” (for delivered) or “R” (for read” next to each sent message.
This is exactly the same as what Apple’s iMessage does. The question is, did Apple buy the iMessenger app from Vaughn SIMON or did they simply rip off the name and idea?
What do you think about this?
