    With the release of IOS 5 and the new Notification centre coming to IOS devices, it looks good, but i have a query regarding this.

    After looking at WWDC keynote from IOS, the Notification Centre can be accessed directly from the Lock screen, while this may be good. I'm wondering how this would impact security ? As you respond to notification(s) , or apps alerting the user to the notification, what happens afterwards? And more importantly, what happens period? Is just the app unlocked, and only that app, and after the user does what they need the phone re-locks itself? or once you accept to a notification from the Lock screen, the phone unlocks. ?

    This would be good if it was your intention, but what if your IPhone, IPad etc was in the hands of someone else. stolen etc.. ?

    If you slide on a notification to open that app you will still have to put in your passcode before the app opens.

    YOu can control the amount of detail you want your notifications to show from each app (eg. preview in messages, or amount of preview lines in Mail).
    However, before you can go to an app from the Notification screen you are asked for the passcode. So that's the answer to your questions.
