How to see all the unread message notifications on your iPhone, all at once, all in the same place

Instant Messaging (IM) — and the notifications that come with them — are horribly fragmented. iPhone users have iMessage built-in, but if you use Facebook then you likely also have Facebook Messenger, if you use Google you likely also have Google Hangouts, if you come from BlackBerry you likely have BBM contacts, and depending on what part of the world you're in, you likely also have WhatsApp, Line, WeChat, Telegram, Viber, and more all locked and loaded. That's an awful lot of beeping, buzzing, and badging to deal with. If you handle notifications the instant they come in, then it may not be a problem. If you need to go back later, hunting for little red dots all over your Home screen can be a hassle. So what's the answer? Unify them all in one folder!

How to reset Launchpad in Mavericks

Launchpad is the application launcher that Apple has included in OS X since Lion was released in 2011. It makes it dead easy to find and launch applications on your Mac, regardless of where they're installed. Apps you've installed using the Mac App Store are really easy to remove - you just click and hold the icon, similar to what you'd do on the Springboard interface of an iOS device.

But apps you've downloaded elsewhere can be a bit trickier. Occasionally, the database that Launchpad uses can get corrupted, and you may find links to "dead" apps that are no longer installed, or missing apps that you know are on your Mac. Here's how to fix that problem:
