    descriptive thread titles are better than vague ones.

    I'm sorry, you have the wrong thread sir. I didn't post this in the "how to write a descriptive title" thread.

    But it's true, if everyone used non-descriptive titles for every thread, the forum would be less easy to read. Seeing how you gave such a lousy subject title, why not mention it here ? Then everybody that needs to can learn from your bad example.

    What are "active notifications?" Could you mean Active Display? If so, then rumor has it Active Display is already running on Android 4.3 devices, namely the Moto X.

    Was anyone expecting the feature to disappear by 4.4?

    Wouldn't that be a good example then? Of what not to do. No one learns from bad examples.

    I'm referring to active notifications/active display. They go hand in hand. I know there's a phone called the moto x in which this feature debuted on. And its not baked into stock android, that was Motorola's addition to the software. Doesn't mean it'll be on 4.4. Which is where this rumor comes into play.

    Active Display is as much hardware as it is software; not every Android device could run it quite like the X can.

    Outside your nondescript forum post, would you like to source this "rumor?"

    Is it something to do with the display?

    Yes. It needs to be an AMOLED display. On IPS displays, it would cause too much battery consumption.

    So the Nexus 7 and the new nexus 5 wouldn't be much good!

    But they could still potentially run it though, right? Its not restricted to just amoled screens?

    "rumors have it..."

    that J.J. Abrams is likely to frak up the Star Wars franchise even worse than George Lucas;
    that Android 4.4 may debut later this year or early next year;
    that the government shutdown really won't accomplish very much;
    that Linux is slowly taking over the tech world and is essentially already the dominant player in many areas;
    that the Eagles never broke up: they simply took a 14 year vacation;
    Gatchaman was the forerunner to many show concepts seen in many other such shows over the last two to three decades.

    Thank you. A rumor is just a rumor.

    It absolutely could. It would just be a huge battery drain. IPS displays must have a backlight in order to run the screen. It doesn't matter if one pixel has something on it, or all of them have something on it. It will take the same amount of battery to do it. AMOLED screens turn individual pixels off when not in use, since each pixel creates its own light. That is why they produce such good blacks (black on your screen means that pixel is off) It also allows AMOLED screens to so things such as active display, since only a few pixels are turning on, thus minimizing battery drain.

    Maybe something like Dashclock would be better?
