mattcraiganon - This one is sweet. Have you heard of the AOSPA 4.2 feature called Peek? This is a way of mimicking that functionality without having to flash the AOSPA ROM (ie for when you don’t have a Nexus device to flash it on). It’s not Peek, it doesn’t work exactly the same way, but it provides very similar functionality. Just install it and use the test notification for an example. It’s free!

This little app let's you see your notifications at your fingertips! When you receive a notification, you're screen will wake for a second and show a little circle. When you hold it down, you'll see the whole thing. Good thing is when you own an AMOLED display, or won-t consume a lot of battery since 90% shows a pure black color!

This update brings a completely new and unique design with a lot of new possibilities. The design is more streamlined and is aimed at giving you the best possible experience! Summary:
