    My iPhone would tell me if I have a new SMS, Facebook notification, or message + a # indicator on the icon. anything similar for Android?
    Right now I get a notification and it is available at the top if I slide down from home screen (hangouts, sms or mail) but is there anything that would enable similar to the below iPhone screen shot?
    Attached Thumbnails Any way to enable Badges or notifications on which app has new message?-2013-11-29-16.24.00.jpg

    There are a few launchers such as Nova and Apex which have the same notification badge functionality via a plugin for the app but can only be accessible if you use the paid versions of such launchers. I'm pretty sure Espier (the regular and iOS7 versions) runs in the same manner but is probably free in contrast.

    Nova Launcher:
    Apex Launcher:
    Espier Launcher 7:

    If you don't want to install a third-party launcher then consider this app:

    A launcher would be a great way to go since it also offers customizability. The choice is yours.
