    I'll approve this.
    Edit: I'd like the ability to reply to a txt that comes up on my screen using an on screen keyboard, much like the jailbroken app; BiteSMS or others. I like multitasking but not the multitask txting. Its the same as before just slapped multitasking on. In my Opinion. :/

    Amen!
    Just a thought (please keep in mind i am not that active in the jailbreaking community) with jailbreaking is there a way to patch the apples notification system?

    Nicely wrote JKK, some good points. We do need more implements of notifications, and not like those boring pop-up boxes that unterupts your game. I'm waiting for the new jailbroken app that's called Notifications Notified.

    It's actually called "Notified" If I remember correctly.

    I like the looks of Notified, but I didn't mention it since it isn't available. And because someone else should have to pick up where apple left off.

    But thanks everyone!

    Apple have employed the webOS notifications genius, so hopefully by 5.0 we should get some notifications which aren't a sight for sore eyes.

    But seriously Apple, 4 major iterations of your OS, and we still have intrusive horrendous push notifications? Sort it out plz kthxbai

    Great rant. I hate Apple's notifications, so I turn the pop ups off. It still ticks me off that I can't see what went off until I go to the springboard, but whatever.
