    Has anyone purchased this yet?
    I'm after something that will display different statusbar icons for different messenger apps...
    At the moment with notifier I can only have the msn style statusbar icon for all IM apps and facebook etc, it would be ideal if I could have different icons, eg one for Beejive, one for Facebook, etc

    Just wondered if this feature has been added to Notifier+ before I purchase?

    this is a really tough call for me.

    i use lockinfo but only for status bar notifications and lockscreen weather.

    Notifier+ will add, easier to recognize from a distance icons on your lockscreen of missed items. lockinfo doest offer that. I would suspect that notifier also has a much lighter footprint in memory and within iOS.

    i was thinking of running both but then whats the point of having all the overhead of lockinfo to just have a weather readout on lockscreen...

    id love to hear from anyone whos got Notifier+ as well

    What makes me hesitate is that I have notified pro, and I don't see why I would pick notifier+ ahead of Notified pro.

    Notifier+ is just way to simply provide alert icons of missed events. I think for those who can forgo the whole notification "system" and would just be satisfied with status bar alerts and lock screen alert icons.

    I bought Notifier+ and I love it. It does exactly what I need it to do and it does it well.

    All I want from it is:

    1) Status Bar notification icons
    2) Repeating audio/vibrate alerts until I check the email/SMS/missed call/voicemail/IM/etc
    3) Ability to customize how many times and how often those repeat alerts happen.

    To my knowledge, there isn't anything else available that can do this.

    Could you advise if it allows different status bar icons for different IM applications or if they all use the MSN style icon?

    How about some screenshots? Does this interfere with installed lockscreens?

    it does overlap them if you choose display on locksreen. there is no real need. I bought it for the repeat sounds.

    I have not tried phone or anything else but with email here is what you get. you can only touch the mail icon and it opens up the mail program. so it bypasses the lockscreen preview and all.

    redundant

    i like the little notifications from lockscreen info. its subtle and gets the job done. if i had that mail notification in the middle of my screen, i would check my mail just so it wasnt hanging in my face

    i keep my phone at an arms lengh its easier to see these from a distance than the tiny ones up top while driving (stopped of course)

    that said, you can customize it to show smaller icons, and lower them down the screen

    my point is that it would annoy me if i had huge notifications in the middle of my lock screen.

    if you cant see icons when you phone is at arms reach, you need glasses. ontop of that, if you cant see the icon, you wont be able to read the message until you shove the phone in your face.

    Love this app... This is a feature that has been lacking on iPhone since the beginning. It's indispensable and I can't believe it's taken this long.

    I don't use the lockscreen icons, they are redundant and in the way. I am only using the repeat notification feature, which is a glaring omission by Apple.

    Great app!!!

    Relax brother,
    I'm just sayin, I can differentiate easier at a glance and distance what's been missed than guessing what itty bitty icon is up in the status bar. Especially while the phone is say in the cup holder of my either of my cars.

    And no, I don't wear glasses or need them.

    Great app. I used to use Lockinfo but this is a lot cleaner looking and doesn't take up too much real estate on the lockscreen. I'm not entirely sure what the difference is between this and Notified Pro but, for my tastes, this app does the trick.

    I have lockinfo and toneFXs along with this notifier+.

    I cannot get the reminders to work at all....i think its most likely a conflict with toneFXs.

    anyone got any ideas?

    thanks
