    People would rather complain than praise. Everyone will put out effort to make a letter of complaint when they're pissed, but will do nothing if they're pleased.

    The smartest thing Microsoft can do is make it available as an option. WP users who then want a notification center can use it. Those who don't, don't.

    There is a lot of misinformation in this thread that provokes discussion where as things posted in the other thread can not be disputed.

    What you just described is widgets in Android. Which is fine, widgets in Android are awesome.

    Aren't you still glancing and going even if it's a number tick? Yeah I get there's a lack of detail, but maybe the developer should make it so the live tile shows the most recent update info. I always understood the current implementation to make sense generally because as it stands if a user were to act upon the notification they most likely are going to launch the app anyway to do so.

    But I still can see your perspective.

    Don't know if this has been suggested before or not, but I think the following could be a good idea;

    The way we swipe right to left to access our list of apps, so if we could have an option to swipe left to right which would bring up a notification center screen which would then obviously display notifications chosen by the user.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    I agree that is all I want, a list of missed toast notifications. No devaluation in the live tiles. Live tiles are amazing and awesome, but as an example, the messages tile only shows the last message in detail and then a counter even as a full size tile, that's all good and all but its not very helpful other than showing me the count. I really think that we need to be patient, Microsoft has a lot going on, and they know WP8 is there baby, give this freshly released OS some time to mature, or consider your other options.

    I would just to let everyone know that is commenting on my thread to continue to do so and I encourage both positive and negative comments. But I wanted to make it clear that I have had WP since its beginning when I got a first generation Samsung Focus and I just recently bought a Lumia 920 on the first preorder day. I LOVE WINDOWS PHONE! And I would never ever switch cuz it is the greatest OS ever! Just throwing in some ideas to improve on some aspects for others...

    I fully support a notification centre. I think it is important to be able to aggregate all missed notifications in one area. Furthermore my home screen has some tiles that are not live but that I use often (wifi / data toggle), as well as tiles that are live but I would not need in my notification area (news and weather). I do not want to have to group all of my messaging live tiles in one place to get notifications to be able to " glance and go". A notification centre does not in any way take away from live tiles and I think they will continue to evolve and only get better. There seems to be so much emphasis on wp being different instead on wp being better.

    I worry about a notification centre to the left of the home screen being limited. For one it does not allow multiple home screens should Microsoft choose that route down the road. A left swipe is also only accessible from the home screen. More importantly it eliminates the ability to use the modern ui to the full extent by limiting the notification area to a single pane. I think the notification centre should be accessed by a swipe down. Instead of dragging the notifications down though, the gesture would pull the screen down to reveal the notification area (in a similar animation the the home screen swipe). This could then allow for a panorama layout notification area accessible from everywhere in the operating system.

    After a month of use, I think the notification center is not a must. The current float of information on Live Tiles is good enough for me. Not to mention such method is so stylish and dynamic. If there are more apps improvements on the Live Tiles, it will be even better. People who yield about notification center can actually put all the live tiles they care about on the top for a quick check.

    WP8 "Portico" is not = to Android 4.2.2 "Jelly Bean v2" by no means!! Also with features lacking from WP8.

    By April it's a new story with WP8.1 vs iOS6.1 vs BB10 vs Android 5.0 "Key Lime Pie" 😎
    Your brother must have a defective Note 2.

    Where should this commentary lead us?

    Let me help you figure this out.

    This is insulting and not posted in a civil manner . "I'm guessing english is not your native tongue. Insult?"

    We call this trolling. Let me define that for you:

    [INFO]• Trolling - Do not post inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages to provoke users into responding in a negative way. Calling another member a troll is also a form of trolling.[/INFO]

    That is from our forum rules you see if you post something that is a off-topic message to provoke users into responding in a negative way well that is against the forum rules. Do you see how I have interpreted your quote "I'm guessing english is not your native tongue." as an off-topic message to provoke someone into responding in a negative way. Which is against the before mentioned forum rule. Is that clear enough do you understand now?

    Trolling because I guessed that someone speaks multiple languages? (Which is usually a compliment everywhere else)

    Instead of a notification center having all the Toast Notifications show up on the screen until you have read them makes more sense and not have them disappear after a few seconds. I have always been a NOKIA user (Never used an Android or an iPhone don't plan to either ) and what i miss the most is having the phone notify you that you have missed something just by looking at it "Have the Windows Logo Blink". That would be more useful and practical than having a notification center.
