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.
Nice idea!! But is shud be SWIPE RIGHT TO LEFT!!
This is a massively overlooked feature. And Microsoft seems to be depending purely on 3rd party devs for all their features.
CHANGE THE NAME OF THIS SUGGESTION TO "Notifications center" so it's more evident what it is to MS
Swiping right is what u mean. That'll pull display to left. Microsoft will read this & think u don't know how to use WPs
A notification centre is a must. Climb out of the OS dark ages Microsoft.
And this 'third' screen should also have buttons on the top to:
* lock the screen rotation
* turn off your wifi/data connection
* put your phone in flight mode
So it should be like a "phonecenter" where you can see your latest toasts and where you can control everything.
Microsoft and the WP8 team please bring this idea to the fold and bring the best phone UI the best notification centre.
They should call it the toaster. ;)
I love Windows Phone but, this is a necessity.

Would be nice if i swiped left i got a new start screen with room for more tiles. (Not having them all layed out vertical).
Create a widget/tile that displays last toasts. No reason to have it build in the OS, just give an app that can list em.
Good I need too
Even better is to swipe down like on android or something to see the notifications. If I swipe to the right now I like seeing all the previous apps I was using.
You mean swipe to the right? But yes: Would be a reasonable feature!
No question, so far my favourite idea here.

Just voted twice for this, you see this is why Windows Phone is falling behind the rest... at this point Blackberry will climb back to third place in no time. Wake up Microsoft!
Looks like Blackberry beat WP to the punch. That's what happens when you don't listen to your customers Microsoft!
Wow, I'm starting to see a pattern here; most if not all of the requests here seem to have been suggested since Windows Phone came out. Here we are on WP8 now and still nothing, WTF is MS thinking... do they have **** for brains?
Notification center is a MUST. Microsoft PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE listen to this.
