...no icons in the status bar. The whole point of a notification, for me at least, is to be reminded of something that you missed, while you weren't looking at your phone. Or maybe something that you wanted to look at "later" (which they have a button for), but still want to be reminded that it's there. So when you turn your phone on, or are doing something else on your phone, you have that constant little reminder at the top of the screen, so you don't forget to check your unread message, or whatever it may be. So let's say I'm doing something in an app, and I get a text message. The little notification pops up on the top of the screen, but I click "later" because I want to respond to it when I'm done. A few minutes later, I finish doing whatever in my app, then I move on to something else, and now I've already forgotten about the text message. Now the problem is... the only time I'm going to see that notification, is if I manually pull down the notification center from the taskbar. Or of course if I turn off the phone, then turn it back on and see it on the lock screen. A tiny icon would be completely unobtrusive, could be optional for each app (just like the lock screen notification), and would be perfect for a quick glance to see what you missed. Now is it just me, or does that simple little feature (taskbar icons) seem like it's actually pretty important and should have been included? That was my #1 reason for jailbreaking my phone, and I was hoping iOS 5 would eliminate my desire to jailbreak... Personally, I would just want status bar icons for Calendar, Messages, Email, and Missed Calls... everything else I could just leave to the regular Notification Center. I plan on reporting this on the Bug Reporting website, and I ask that you other developers do so as well if you feel the same way as me. What do you all think?
