iPhone Notifications brings iPhone-like notifications to your Android device

iPhone Notifications brings iPhone-like notifications to your Android device
Occasionally we hear from iOS and Android users who love their device and OS, but miss one particular feature about the other device or OS. One such feature popular among many iOS users is the notification style. Until now, users wanting iPhone-style notification bubbles on their smartphone have had to get an iOS device.

Developer Productigeeky is trying to change that with the releases of iPhone Notifications Lite and iPhone Notifications (full) for Android. Both are available now in the Google Play store, and will add notification bubbles and the option to have a notification pop-up at the top of the screen, strikingly similar to iOS onto your Android handset.

As with many apps, the free version, iPhone Notifications Lite, comes with less ability to customize. We recommend first giving the free version a try, then shelling out the couple dollars to get the full version if you fall in love with the iOS notifications all over again.

why would anyone want this? I hate iPhone notification pop ups. It's the most annoying thing I find on the iPhone.

I thought one of the biggest complaints of the iPhone was the notifications? I don't want something poppin up on my screen when i'm doing something.

Yup, that was my thought as soon as I read the headline. If this app gets any traction, expect Apple to sue.

The banner notifications work very well. As long as the pop up is disabled and banners are selected its nice.

It's not giving users the iPhone experience but developed to ruin android experience. I hate those notifications.

I occasionally go and hunt those little notification buttons down and close them on my iTouch. It is VERY annoying. I think iOS needs to become more Android like, not the other way around.

Of course, this couldn't possibly be for those ex iPhone users who jumped to Android in order to customize their phones but found that this was one feature they really missed. After all, developers have no sense of direction or purpose according to some of your comments. They saw a need, no matter how small and sought to fulfill it. Isn't that their job?

LOL...you do realize this is one of the biggest forms of Android treason ever. why would any Android user want iPhone similarities? maybe an attempt to unite the two opposing sides?

I mean no argument in this, but are we now saying that Google is a form of sovereignty or government that will now punish, if not imprison its citizens that fail to abide by its laws? Android was an open source project, right? It's main idea was to allow the user to create and customize their own user experience, correct? If this were remotely close to treason, then Google would state in their user agreement that you may not customize your phone to reflect Apple products in any way. There goes the whole TouchWiz interface from Samsung. Again, not to bash Samsung as I Ioved my Galaxy Tab. Also, your opinion shows complete bias. The best part is that in a forum layout, that is okay! You are just giving your opinion. In all honesty, I hate the iPhone interface and find it to be too cookie cutter. I may have an iPad, but it will take a lot to push me from a WP7 device or my Android phone. I didn't mean to turn this into a novel but I will make my point and move on. Is it possible that we as users could be hindering the efforts that Google has tirelessly put forth by trying to influence our bias or opinion on a concept that was to be completely open in the first place. Could we be so set in our ideas that we are actually closing doors for developers and users that may push Google's great OS even further? Is a notification bubble app going to do that? I am 99% sure that it won't. It just bothers me knowing that what Google wanted was a lack of restriction and a wealth of choice, but because of our own personal hatred and childish ambivalence toward products and manufacturers, it is not Google that is strangling the growth and development, but us. We are imposing the limit and may be even too prideful to admit it.

Is there something like the number notification that pops up beside the icon that lets you know how many things you need to read or open? Iphone style. Notification bar of android is really good but i just want to customize my android to have the iphone style. It is just easier for me to track down which apps i should do something on like facebook app, viber, etc. Ty
