    Is there a way to have a little number by apps with notifications? Primarily textra and snapchat. I find myself dismissing notifications and forgetting I have them. I'm thinking along the lines of the iPhone new email and text message little red numbers. Anyone?

    If you use an alternative home screen app like Nova Launcher. It has a plug-in for doing just what you want.

    I forget exactly, but it's somewhere in the Nova settings. It'll prompt you to go to the play store and download "Tesla unread" or something like that. If you search the play Store for that, you may find it easier than digging through the Nova settings.

    It was a Nova prime future... Explains why I hadn't found it. Gives me a reason to upgrade!

    It only works with certain apps, but it works great for the ones that are compatible. I always use it when I'm using Nova, but I'm currently using Google Now Launcher.

    Ah! Sorry about that. I purchased prime a long time ago & forget which features are included in the free version. Definitely worth the investment in my opinion.
