Swiping left from home screen should show list of missed text message notifications
I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket the other day. After I finished typing, I took it out, and the screen was off.
I turned it on. From the lock screen, I see no text message indicator, so I know I didn’t get a text.
I enter my pin, and the start screen appears.
There’s no obvious way to know what caused it to vibrate in the first place. Whatever toast it was, is now gone.
Was it facebook? Was it weatherbug notifying me that it was above 80 in seattle? I’ll never know.
It would be nice if you could swipe to the left from the start screen to see all of the toast notifications that you've missed.
We know that viewing & managing notifications in one places is valued by our customers. Check out the Action Center features now in Windows Phone 8.1 at http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/features-8-1
It's as if "they" can't think: swiping left from the start screen takes you to the app list ... Please STOP acting childishly ...
Sure, it would have been unique to swipe RIGHT, but you always would have to go back to the start screen, which could have been annoying to most of the users. MSFT is interested in making as many people happy as possible, so that WP market share is held up/will be increased, so they can further invest ...
Hey Microsoft, You already had a notification page, it was under the Me tile.
Swiping left to reveal the ME tile notifications would have been more WP like.
Instead you've sold out WP and made it work more like current Android and iOS.
At this rate, there will be nothing unique about Windows phone and instead of people switching too it because of that, be careful that doesn't turn into the reason we switch away.
It's as if they just can't read, I mean it clearly says left from the home screen. MS closed the suggestion using the Android notification center aka action center. Would it be that hard to make it a swipe from the left?
Nearly three years. I got this email today and I didn't even realize what it was. I've moved on from WP because of the lack of app availability and simple features such as this. At least it is coming. Maybe I'll have to check out WP again in a few years.
FYI action center is coming in WP 8.1
pull down from the top and you'll see it.
Nice idea man

This feature is available in WP8.1 by swiping down instead of left as described here. Moderators will not close this thread and return your votes until WP8.1 is officially available for download, but you can remove your votes and apply them elsewhere.
I prefer phone call function for the left swipe. Or an editable function or app.
while playing music, u never get to see that app in background.
This is available in WP8.1 but from the top, which is much better. Swiping from the side would lead to a lot of accidental openings when navigating in apps.
Dont add notification bar like android or ios. Swiping the left of the home screen is a good idea for showing all the notifications.
i'm removing my votes as it is appears to have been imptemented in wp8.1 as a notification center.
check this out and please post your votes here.
WP should long press home button switch to action center ,and long press search button switch to contana for easy one hand use

There is the glance screen. It can provide notifications of missed calls, messages, emails, facebook updates, notifications from games and from many other apps. I think that microsoft should continue improve the concept of glance screen rather than a new notification bar or center. I chose windows phone because it had a concept different from that of ios or android phones not because it wanted be like android or other platforms
i would love to have the option to assign functions to swipes. depending on the size of the phone i find swiping from the top or the left side of the phone to be cumbersome. that said i know it is personal preference. i think windows phone should define gestures and let users assign tasks. personally i would love to be able to use the bottom swipe for several functions. swipe up for notifications (assuming a notification centre is on the way), swipe up and right for shortcuts (assuming a shortcut list is on the way (iOS control centre is quite good), swipe up and left for multitasking / app switching.
