  • I don't think you understand how notifications and widgets work on Android. You said you don't know where to put notifications on Android. You don't put them anywhere. They stay in the shade. You then state you don't want to swipe through 2 pages of widgets to get to your apps. Widgets are user defined. Use them or not. You don't have to have 2 pages of them. The home screen(s) are configurable and you can put apps and in folders or whatever and add widgets if you want. Basically you sounded uneducated and just you really wanted to say that iOS did it better but didn't want to sound to biased. On a related topic how do you live with iOS notification center? Would it kill them to put something on the top of the screen to actually NOTIFY you? You get a badge on the phone that says you missed call or whatever. Why even bother putting that in the notifications at that point?
