I've been trying to figure this one out for a couple of days and I'm not having much luck. Hopefully someone here has some suggestions. I'm using LauncherPro which has built in unread notifications for shortcuts on the dock (i.e. it shows a red circle with the number of unread texts on the messaging shortcut I have there). The notifications are great, except for one killer flaw: the notifications only update when you launch the app through the shortcut on the dock. Since I usually check my new texts by swiping to them from the lock screen, I'm left with the unread notification on the dock even when there are no unread messages. So here's what I'm looking for: a way to have the red circles with my unread messages count on the messaging shortcut on my dock (and preferably on my WidgetLock slider, too) that will update no matter how I check the message. The part that's made this difficult to accomplish is that most apps only work with widgets, which I can't put on the dock. If anyone has any solutions to this, I'd be most appreciative.
