    A bit confused here...

    I was under the impression that for SMS\Text, emails, etc. there was an option to have new notifications popup.

    Is that not the case, or am I missing a setting or something? Thanks in advance

    well, don't quote me on this, but I think all notifications show up in the top bar - there might be a third party app to mimic the iOS function?

    Only iOS implemented that old school popup notification. iOS 5 finally got rid of that.

    They did...but they didn't. With iOS 5, you could get the pull down notifications but selectively choose which notifications would also trigger a pop-up. You could also get a pop-up banner flash at the top of the window.

    Still getting used to Android. I did like on my iPhone that the screen would light and show the notification and then go off. I don't think Android does this (just the audio/vibrate notification).

    I can deal with it. Can't have it all and some things just take getting used to.

    I agree with you here. I'm also coming from iPhone and the pop up notifications are awesome. I wish that android would also implement this option for those that like it.

    If you have a text or email come in while you are on the lock screen when you unlock your phone you can drag the text pop up to the ring to jump right to it. I have not tried this with any other apps.

    They are only awesome if you answer each one the instant it pops up.

    Once you get busy, or have a lot of things going on, popups become lost, and useless.
    This is why Even Apple adopted the Android model of a Notification bar.

    There are settings to allow SMS messages and a few other things to pop up on the lock screen in Android, and the HTC One series has a Lock Screen option under Personalize called "Productivity" that lists most recent events in calls, texts, email, and calendar.

    Give it a try.

    Popup notification on iOS is considered a drag, not well suited for mobile. Not a chance to arrive in android.

    If you really want that feature a number of third party texting apps have it, like GoSMS or Handcent.

    Also some apps like Handcent or Chomp will have pop up options built in for text messages but only for text messages.

    Hello!

    You can try Popup Notifications, for having you incoming SMS show as pop-ups! Its market page is at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pnotifications
    It support per contact notifications setup and has great integration with the phones Lock Screen!

    This project is going to support gmail, social networks and well as system notifications in the near future (like battery status notifications)!

    I believe its worth giving it a try!

    Thanks,

    For something less practical and more whimsical try 'POPs Notification Wallpapers'

    I like using NotifierPro too. It works with a lot of other apps and has a lot of customizations.
