    I've been trying that Active Notifications app for most of the day and it is pretty good. I even bought the premium version to support the dev. I like it so far.

    Then you may want to buy one of those unsightly battery pack/cases...

    Does it not hurt your battery life? I thought that was the reason Motorola went with an AMOLED display for the Moto X. Something about AMOLED having the unique ability to only power a few pixels.

    I haven't had any noticeable battery drain. It lights up the screen with a black background so I'm guessing it doesn't use much power.

    ActiveNotifications will use more power on the n4 than on a device with amoled screen because amoled can selectively light up parts of the screen while lcd lights up the whole screen (doesn't matter if it's black or not...still uses power). That being said, if it's only on for 15 seconds and you don't have many notifications, it probably won't be significant. YMMV.

    Is there a way to set how often the notifications light up the screen.

    If you mean to have the notifications repeat after the first time shown, no, it is a future feature he may add...

    No I meant how often the screen lights up to show you information. When I install it, my screen blinks every few seconds, which is a bit to much....

    Then you have too many notifications! If it is constantly lighting up it is because there are new notifications. You can disable what apps generate notifications in the settings to reduce this but right now, I think that's all you can do.

    [edit]: That could have been clearer. In the ActiveNotifications settings, you can dictate which apps it picks up notifications for.

    ActiveNotfications is truly a neat app. Also went for premium features to support the developer. Really pleased!

    Going to try this with my Galaxy Tab 7.7 (AMOLED screen). I know it doesn't have some of the more advanced features of the Moto X, but having the right screen will help with battery life.

    He's using Tasker to do that.

    No one's praising Twisty Launcher? (also in the article)

    I just set it up. Paid a dollar to the dev. Works cool, takes a second to get the gestures down. 3 gestures (after donation) = 3 quick launch features. I like it

    I'll be giving ActiveNotification a whirl next.

    Agree. Twisty is nice with the paid version. I like being able to get to my texts/email from my lock screen. Not needing to enter my pin, only a gesture.

    I set my device up with a similar setup, it's fun but probably only like 70-80% reliable the way I did it. Moto's implementation is probably superior
