    Me tile kinda already is the WP notification center. I think that it just needs to be improved, allowing third party apps to integrate with it. Would also be nice if the notification from Me tile could be pushed to the lock/home screen. What do you guys think?

    I think a lock screen count for Me notifications is a no-brainer, and tbh, I'm really surprised it doesn't have it already.

    When the screen has gone dark, how are you going to know you have a new message, etc.? Having to wake up the phone to see any notifications is one of the biggest flaws of the platform, in my opinion.

    That's where the lock screen count would come in handy. On my previous iPhone, I would still have to wake the phone up after the screen goes dark to see the notifications. No?

    Androids and BlackBerries have an LED on the front of the phone notifying you of new messages. MSFT has received requests to use one of the capacitive buttons on the front in the same manner.

    My 8x has a notification light when I have an unread email, text or missed call. There is a bar on the top and it turns green when there is a pending notification

    How come? I don't have the LED blink or turn green when I get messages. Is that a setting?

    What exactly is a notification center anyway and why would I need it? My lock screen notifications and live tiles seem to be fine at notifying me to the things I need to know.

    How do you do that? I have an 8X as well but it doesn't do that. It only turns on an LED in the corner of the speaker phone when the battery is low and when is fully charged.

    My previous android phone only flashed the LED for 5 mins or so, so if you were away from your desk for longer than that you still had to wake up the phone to check. Agree that some sort if notification that lasts would be good though.

    My mistake. I wake up each morning and the notification bar is green and I have emails and texts waiting. I realized this means its charged, not that there are notifications. Sorry for the wring info, hopefully an update will give the option to have notifications

    As I haven't used it so far, what types of notifications does the Me tile give you? I am assuming Twitter and Facebook, but is there anything else?
