    Signed up to the Facebook beta and I noticed it now uses probably one of the iPhone's more useful features the notification badge. What I didn't realise however is this must be built in to the app and not the system. Just found it odd that more android apps had not decided to use it.

    Well, that's actually TouchWiz and not just the app. I have a Galaxy S II running JellyBean 4.1.2 and it makes the same thing but with some other applications

    Ahh never realised. That's the first app I've seen use them, without using a different launcher or app to provide the functionality.

    I've never seen that before until I got my Galaxy S4 on July 1st. I think is touchwiz.

    Most likely it's from Touchwiz, I haven't seen it on other Android phones.
    It's cool to have that visual notification/counter, that way you know how many emails or messages you have.

    Nope, I have no extra launchers on my phone. My GS4 had this sine the day I took it out of the box.

    Bit of an old thread but just thought people might be interested. I too missed this feature from my iPhone so I made an app to try and provide unread counters for all app icons on Android. Check it out and let me know what you think.
