Do Windows Phones have this? Also when you are inside an app, and you get an email or SMS, do you get a notification on top that disappears after a few seconds?
Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Microsoft has specific events to release information, if it keeps releasing information every time someone asks, they will never have anything new for the big shows.

In fact this is a poor argument since WP is the only one to be lacking a notification centre... which means no one would copy...Exactly and because to keep competitors from watching them and then copying features like what happend with mango. Last year with mango everything that was to be included in mango was announced and demonstrated 4 months in advance and even a beta leaked. so by the time mango actually came out people already had it and the excitement for it died down. learning from this MS doesnt want the same thing to happen again.
Having everything at the same place and not having to wait for the tile to flip?If you cannot live without a notification center you need to get a phone that has one. I don't really have a problem with how live tiles work and the new larger ones will be able to give your email and text messages just like a notification center. What is the difference besides implementation?

If I remember right, wasn't the MeeGo notification panel specifically for social updates and communication? That implementation would probably work best with Windows Phone, where individual apps can still use their tiles but services like Facebook and Skype can push updates to the panel.Remember on Meego Nokia let you swipe to notifications?
They could have a notification center on the left. The tiles in the middle. And your apps on the right. Seems like it could work.
This is a ridiculous claim, and I want you to know that I'm glaring at you with extreme annoyance as I write this. Wanting something to be improved or implemented because it's beneficial is perfectly reasonable. Telling someone to go to a whole other platform because of a feature request is irrational and immature.
I want a notification center too, but I LOVE my live tiles and WP, and happen to be a big advocate of the platform. Should I switch back to Android too, because I think a notification center could prove useful?
I mean, you essentially suggested that Microsoft might as well pack up and go home, because they're never going to attract the billion or more users of iPhone and Android because they don't have a notification center. No, no, don't bother adding it now... it's too late.
WP does notify you, just not in the way you may be used to from android. That is all I was saying. WP may not get a "notification center" but still has the same functionality. That is what I meant. So if you do have to have them in a "notification center" you may have to switch platforms. Not sure why that is immature to suggest. If you were asking about a automotive choice and wanted a small car and really like the civic. But then said you want AWD I would definitely suggest a different platform. Honda does not make an AWD car. Many others do. I would suggest you go look at Subaru or Audi. That is not really immature I don't think. I may have been harsh I guess, but the suggestion is sound. If you HAVE to have something and the current platform does not have it as you want, talk to a DEV or switch platforms.
Problem being that the lock screen is capped at 5+1 notifications and can't do anything more than a counter on five of those. Tiles are equally handicapped in that they don't display notification centre-level detail unless they are two-wide, which in turn takes up a third of your screen.Isn't the new lock screen supposed to be a "notification center?" If I turn my phone on I'm hoping I see how many missed calls, or new emails, or IM's or ESPN score updates, or whatever.... Otherwise maybe keep a running list of notifications in the Me tile...
