    Love iOS. Been with it since day 1, but I am so annoyed by this damn notification system. Sometimes, i want to pull my hair out.

    When do YOU predict a change? Is it the next big thing to tackle for apple yet you think?

    Apple has recently acquired a specialiast from Palm who focuses on notifications. I predict iOS 5.0 will hold some changes, although whether they are significant to an extent we expect, only time will tell.

    Not before iOS5.

    And probably not in iOS5, either.

    I agree that some form of "passive notification" (i.e. flashing icon next to the clock) would be a very nice option.

    It might be in iOS 5 if they can get it done in time otherwise it will probably change in iOS 6

    The same person also replied to this thread ;)

    On a more serious note, that thread was meant as an idea farm for better design paradigms, and this thread is a complaint and a question about notifications. There's a distinct difference.

    Cool. The acquisition does give one the assumption Apple is planning to address this issue sooner rather than later. Sounds promising for 5.0.
