I'm an avid iPhone user, but this baffles me. I really really wish they had done something more like webOS. One of the big complaints I hear is that webOS notifications take up screen real estate. And iOS notifications don't? One thing I really dislike is how you can't quickly swipe away an iOS notification, and it doesn't push the screen down like webOS, meaning it covers up parts of the screen. For instance, if I'm in an app and I'm reaching up to tap the back button and get an email, I have to patiently sit there and wait for it to go away until I can press back. I've accidently opened apps several times because I went to press back and hit the notifications. Here's what I mean: Whereas webOS will push up the UI elements allowing you to continue working normally as you get notifications. I love iOS, but this is already bothering me after only a week. The whole point of this notification overhaul was so that it wouldn't interrupt you when you get them, and that's exactly what it's still doing.
