    Did anyone notice that the number of new messages doesn't show up in the notification even if that option is selected? It hasn't worked a single time that I've seen. Wanted to know if it worked for anyone else.

    Mine has worked every single time. If anything it's been running smoother since the latest update.

    Really? You still see the red dot with the number on the notification bar? I thought maybe it broke with ICS and they never fixed it.

    Oh that number, now I do remember that number, you're right it has gone away. To be honest I text so much I completely ignore the notification other than what Lightflow shows me. Now that you mention it that unread notification count has gone away..

    What do you mean? Doesn't Lightflow just blink the light? Or am I missing some other feature?

    The same holds true for GoSMS. There is no longer a red notification badge in the status bar with the notification icon to tell you how many unread texts you have. ICS must have broke this feature for some reason, across the board.

    Yes Lightflow just blinks the light, but that's what I use for my notification. I don't even really pay attention to my notification bar anymore tbh, I got a specific notification set for any of my apps that need it

    I switched to SMSPopup when handcent was glitching when I first got the Nexus and I love it.

    Like Dezy said, I just have different colors for different notifications using lightflow. So when I see it blink I know whether it's an email/text/missed call ect...

    What I like about SMSpopup is that when you get a text, it pops it up on the home screen in a box where you can either close, delete, or reply directly from the pop up. It just got updated as well and gave it a more ICS color scheme. I love it's functionality and coupled with lightflow it's perfect for managing texts.

    I had to dump Handcent and switched to ChompSMS. Chomp seems rock solid so far. Only thing I miss from Hancent is allowed you to select MP3's when your alarm goes off (why that's not in stock Android I will never know).
