there is no icon in the status bar to let us know that there is a notification? I find myself, more often than not, not really using the drop down notifications because there is no icon in the status bar to indicate that "Hey, look here! You have a notification!" I use the drop down menu when I have multiple notifications on my lock screen (since they'll go away after unlocking the device). But other than that, you don't really know you have a notification if you miss the banner message or quickly unlock your device without paying attention to what the lock screen says. The new notifications are nice, but not quite there yet. Anyone else feeling that Apple should put something up in the status bar? I think they should throw in a little red dot in the status bar to let you know that you have pending notifications (if they don't want to put an icon of every individual app with a pending notification).
