    Right now, when you receive a notification on any iOS device it either appears as a banner at the top of your screen or a alert center exactly in the middle. My idea (which would be very useful for iPad is that based on your where your fingers is currently on the screen or based on your most recent input to the screen, if a notification comes in (especially alert style) it will pop up where you last touched. Frequently on the iPad a alert notification will come in and I have to completely adjust my grip just to act upon it. With this feature that necessity would be removed. What do you guys think?

    Could end up causing a lot of accidental button presses though. If you're in a game, for example, and that game involves fast tapping and an alert comes in, you could accidentally tap dismiss, or reply, etc.
