    Home++ NEW Text Message Notification Idea!

    I like to hide the top toolbar when using Home ++. The only problem with this is that i no longer can see my handcent sms icon up top telling me how many txt messages i have. I have come up with this idea that should be incorporated into Home++ or some other application. look at the picture below. there is a red #1 next to the notification icon on the power strip (bottom of the screen). This is jsut an idea. the 1 can be placed in a dif spot of be different but something like i have below.

    This is a different widget called "SMS Unread Count", but only because I like the stock icon. The Handcent widget is just the handcent icon with the same badge type thing on the corner.

    Hmmm I like the idea, but for me it's make me happy if he just added some kinda way to know whether we have a status notification. Like maybe instead of sms read count a counter for how many status notifications we have. That way there is a visual indicator for status notification.

    It's using the "SMS Unread Count" widget, and yes, it looks like the normal messaging, but it opens whatever your default messaging client is [Like Handcent, for example.]

    And yes, it would be nicer if it was integrated into Home++, but for now it isn't and this is the closest we can get for now.

    I try to avoid as many Widgets as possible because i like to use better cut to customize my icons. your can not rename and change the icon of a widget to anything you want. Does anyone know the Home++ developer... tell him about this. haha

    i prefer the stock android icons.... but i love the fact that we can easily change them to personalize the device.
