This concept for an iMessage app for OS X Lion is just that, a concept, but I wish it was real. The designer, Jan-Michael Cart, has produced other slick-looking ‘wish-fullfilment’ videos for potential Apple software in the past and this one is just as nice.
The video, discovered by Macstories, was posted to Cart’s YouTube channel and shows off a nice iMessage app for OS X that integrates seamlessly with the iPhone, iPad and iPod versions found in iOS 5. The Mac is the last line of devices that we’ll be left without a way to seamlessly communicate with from iDevices once iOS 5 hits in the fall. An iMessage app seems almost inevitable at this point and would be an easy addon to Lion later this year, if Apple chooses to do so.
