    Google should add this to the next update, notification bubbles. They should make it a user-set option as I understand some don't want this feature.

    Also, does anybody know a good app t get that has notification bubbles that work while I can use my Nexus 5 home screen??

    Yes, like how iOS has bubbles on the upper corner of the application icon for how many unread messages or emails etc you have

    You can get those with a different launcher- such a nova prime

    Fully understand how people like them, however I moved from an iPhone to the S3 and didn't miss them, and didn't miss them when Touchwiz brought them in and I jumped aboard the good ship Nexus.

    To be blunt a notification is enough for me, I can check numbers when I go into the app.

    Sure there are lots of option out there, that's the beauty of Android.

    That looks cool :)

    I miss having them (long time iPhone user before the N5) but I really like the GE launcher so I have decided to give them up rather than play around with different launchers.
