    Default Icon Badges

    I'm new so try to take it a little easy on me :-) I also searched a bit but could only find older post that vaguely helped.

    I used Android years ago and do not remember this issue and since then have only used an iPhone and now I'm back on Android.

    Just got a Nexus5 and so far I'm loving it and never plan on returning to iPhone and only want to change this one thing for right now.

    Is there anyway to enable icon badges on the SMS and Email app. Currently using the hangouts SMS app. I know the are apps that will replace the stock app but it would be nice not to add an additional app for such a simple thing.

    I'm so use to seeing them and on the iPhone and I never used the notification menu so it would be easier for me to adapt.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can, you need the premium version of Nova Launcher (I think some other launchers do it too, but I use Nova), and you'll be able to enable the icon badges for certain apps.
