    How would you like your notifications on Windows phone 8.1?
    1. Pull down menu style like Android and iOS.
    (which cant be accessed from games and other apps such as wpcentral which lack notification bar)
    2. Live tile on home screen like Unification.
    3. Third home screen support i.e. Left side swipe from Start to access notifications and general settings.
    ( But non accessible from apps)
    4. Inclusion in Multitasking window on the right side by long press of back button.
    ( A feature i thought of which includes utilisation of unused right space in multitasking pane. Makes it accessible from anywhere)
    5. New Notification window on long press of search button.
    ( A concept i came up with where long press of search button will bring up a Notifications/ quick settings/ upcoming appointments transparent themed window on whichever app you are using. Choose from the apps whose notifications you want to see or just see all and access the app from the panel directly. A quick back button press and you are back to whatever you were doing. This makes it accessible from anywhere and can be called Bing notifications.)

    Which one would you like? Or you have your own idea? Leave comments below (:

    How about replacing the useless search button with a notification button? I never use the search button, even when I try to search for something.

    You are one of few. I think a hold of the home should bring up the notification or what have you and search should activate voice.

    I use the search button just as much as the others (maybe more than back button)

    I think double tapping the home button would be a nice way to access notifications.

    The problem with the search button is that I accidentally hit it all the time. It's horrible when you're playing a game.

    Right swipe is a good idea but you can't access the notifications everywhere if it's a right swipe.

    Maybe change the search button so it's for notifications and if you hold it down you access search.

    Changing the search button maybe for the future phone models, current phone models can do with long press right?

    Swipe to the right

    The search button is actually very useful and it doesn't make sense if holding search button will bring us to notification center

    This can be done nicely by many ways. But I don't like the iphone/android idea of pulling from top.

    1. A tile based notifications center is a good idea as long as it's highly functional and also good looking to be put as a double wide tile ( as I use unification now ) I'll post a picture soon.
    2. The swipe from left is by far my favorite, but you can't access from within the apps.
    3. The search button is a good idea man.. But with modifications, a single tap should lunch the notifications center and a long press would lunch the search by Bing.
    Not a big fan of transparency though.


    Question is ... Is there anyone to hear you here? Or its just us crying for a feature found on my mother's galaxy Y

    I use this button all the time, hardly worthless.

    Hopefully with Windows Phone 8.1 they introduce universal search like we have with Windows 8 already, I love search on Windows 8, it is probably the most powerful new feature in Windows.


    As far as notification center, what about a double tap of the home button? Access it from anywhere, even in apps.

    why not long press on home button for notifications? long hold on search makes much more sense for voice control (which isn't much more than a search)

    Press and hold the back button = Multitasking window.
    Press and hold the windows/ home button = speech commands.
    Thus,
    Press and hold the search button = notifications. Logic.

    I'm sorry but that just makes no sense to me. I'd like it on home:

    Back button: Go back --- Hold: See more options to go back.
    Home button: Start screen with apps --- Hold: Neither Notications nor voice commands/search have a direct association with start, so I'd go with notifications.
    Search: Search Bing --- Hold: Search with voice

    Makes more sense for me.

    Come on guys, long presses suck! WP is all about in and out FAST and there is NOTHING fast about long presses!

    I'll settle for double tapping, but something more innovated would be awesome!
