Want Android Notification Style Drop down on iPhone? Here’s How!

Android style notification now on iPhone!

Just recently I have swapped back to an iPhone 4 after living with a buggy Meizu M9 since January, and although the iPhone 4 is a much better, albeit more expensive, package there are some things I miss not having on the iPhone which Android phones have as standard.

One such function is the notification bar which sits at the top of every window in Android. From that bar you can receive notification of what emails or SMS have been received, if your download has finished, and if that app has installed.

The slide down notification area even allow you to toggle certain radios on and off on some Android phones!

If only I could get the same functionality on an iPhone…….

    A better one is notified, however it has no new updates. Due to the fact that the developer was hired by apple for the iOS5 build.
