The ONLY thing I hate about iOS and iPhone that I like better on Android is the way the notifications work. I like how you can see your notifications on the lock screen, just don't like that it shows the content of a text, or Facebook message, or a message on Kik, or whatever.

Is there any way to change this? I feel like I can't leave my phone out in the open when charging, otherwise people can see what I get when a new message comes in.

I'd rather have no notifications on the lock screen than keep things like they are now.

You can change what shows for incoming text/iMessages the rest is limited really. Wait for iOS 7 it should offer a lot more.

Just turn off "show on lock screen" and you're good.

I like how on Android you can have anything on the lock screen apps, widgets, volume toggle, naked women... Etc....

I'd like this option as well.

In old versions of the Facebook app the notifications were "<name> has sent you a message.", which was appropriate. Even so it was too much information, because people looking at my lock screen could see the name of the person that messaged me, but I could live with it.

But having a preview of the message? No thanks.

For the lock screen I'd like a simple icon of the application that wants my attention. For now I have lock screen notifications disabled.
