Ok guys here we go, I’ve done it this time for good, I’ve left iOS and bought a Nexus 5.
Got everything working that I need to forget all about iOS except one or two little things. First off notifications, I am used to being notified heavily on my iPhone, when the phone screen is off and an SMS or email comes in the phone wakes and I can read part of the message without even touching it. I want this on Android, is it possible to do?
Also I need to make the lock screen more functional, I need to be able to touch the power button and see info at a glance without unlocking the phone, things like missed calls, emails, sms etc. What’s the best way of doing this?
