Ever since upgrading my phone to the JellyBean XMAS leak, I've been using it as stock. Prior to it, I was using the GO Launcher. The main feature I loved about it, was GO Notifications EX, seeing a red bubble with a number next to it on my Text, Phone and other applications indicating the number of messages waiting for me to see.
GO is probably a big battery hog, but it's that functionality that I miss.
Should I go back to GO or is there something else nowadays that will do the same thing for me?
