    Not missing the iPhone at all and glad I've made the move over to android and in particular the GN4.
    However I do miss the counter for unread text messages, emails, missed calls etc from the iPhone.

    Any ideas on apps widgets that can have this on the gn4?

    Do you want these counters specifically on the lock screen or on one of your homescreens? There are many ways to solve both problems.

    One way is to use Nova Launcher in conjunction with WidgetLocker. Nova has built-in unread counts that you can tag on top of home screen shortcuts to Gmail/SMS/Phone etc. With WidgetLocker you can create a custom lock screen and incorporate those same shortcuts with overlaid unread counts.

    For a simple lock screen solution, there's a new widget called DashClock which you can use on the stock lock screen that will give you simple unread counts next to the time.

    I'm sure there are many other apps and widgets that will do the job but those are two that I have experience with. Good luck on your search.
