    Hey guys, how do you get notifications on apps like skype, what's app or messaging to pop up showing how many unread messages on my Note 3?

    I'm not sure what you mean... you want a pop-up window like iOS does? Or you mean the unread counters on the notification bar? If it's the first, that depends on each app (Whatsapp I know has this feature built in) but you can also use third-party apps to display the notifications like that. If it's the latter, I don't see why that wouldn't work, at least it works in mine; whenever I get a notification from Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger (now just Messenger) it does say how many unread messages are awaiting and even a preview if you expand the notification.

    Oh, OK... yeah, that really depends on the app but you can download 3rd party apps that can fill in the gap for those apps that don't have it built in. Just look for 'Unread counter' or 'Pop Up Notifications' in the Play Store and I'm sure some options will come up (just make sure you read some of the comments and reviews first; one thing I do give credit to the Apple Store is that is better curated than Android's so you're bound to find a lot of rubbish here).

    Were they not showing on the TouchWiz launcher or only on Nova launcher? If it doesn't work on Nova launcher it's because you need Nova prime in order to get the unread counter, If it's the same on both then it depends on the app, like Spook said
