    I am using Simple Text to create icons on WIdget Locker.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to project missed calls/missed text counter onto the created icon. I'd like a little number to appear on the icon anytime I missed an call or a text.

    Is there an app that makes this possible?

    Why not just used Missed It! ?

    While I have used Missed It before and do like it, I am going with an icon designed in Simple Text. Using Missed it along with the simple text icon widget takes up alot of screen real estate. I am looking for a notifier or counter that will display the number of missed calls, sms, email...etc...etc numerically right on the icon itself.

    Is there an app out there that is capable of this?

    Now that I think about it, there is. Not sure about the name, but I think it was

    I tried Unread SMS. I would have been able to get this to work except that I use GoSMS for my text messaging. Unread SMS only supports the default messaging system.

    I also tried Go Notifications, however I was not able to get the missed call/sms counter to appear on the Smiple Text icons I created and placed on the lock screen. So I am going to assume that this is not supported for Go Notification.

    Go Notification only works for Go Launcher's display, not on other apps.

    So I am back to square one.

    With all this technology we have, you'd think an app like this wouldn't be difficult to find.

    Not really. The problem being that most other apps aren't allowed to interfere with other apps, which is why Unread SMS did not work with Go SMS. The only way to make it work is if it has accessibility permissions which you enable manually in the settings.

    The only way for two different apps to communicate with each other is via Content Resolver class. This require both apps to be aware and special coding coded so both apps can generally gel. It is logical.

    The only way where every app can communicate is Android OS broadcast Intent where every app can intercept and work their own logic.

    Some apps already have it set. For example NoLED normally can't show Go SMS notifications unless you enable "Accesibility" in the settings.

    I did not find an option for SMS Unread Notification under the accessibility section.
