    i don't want a widget for each kind of notification. i'm looking for a single widget that can show me the contents of my entire Notification Drawer.

    basically, i'm running CM10.1.2 with Expanded Desktop enabled, so i can't see that information. i'm also using DashClock right now, and so far it's doing a decent job, but it's not catching every notification (or i have to install extension after extension after extension).

    the only topics i found were these 2:
    http://androidforums.com/android-applications/519924-looking-simple-notification-widget.html

    http://androidforums.com/android-applications/407525-notification-app.html

    and one of the topics mentioned this app:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.igecelabs.android.MissedIt&hl=en

    since there's no trial version, i'm iffy to pay for it, if it's something that doesn't fit my needs. if anyone has any input, please let me know. :D

    Hello, I do not use widgets that often. If I want to see a notification I just pull down my notification bar. Hope this helps!

    you didn't read my thread very well. i stated i'm using a custom ROM with Expanded Desktop enabled. so there is no pulling down the notification bar.

    i ended up buying this app. so far so good. sorta. i only wish it just automatically took everything from the notification bar and display it. you have to manually choose what apps you want to see notifications from.

    also, it's showing i have 1 unread text message, and i don't know why...

    EDIT- to fix the "1 unread text message" error, i had to point at the Messaging app, instead of the built-in ability of text message notifications.

    i'm liking this app. kinda sucks that i have to manually select every app i have that could produce a notification. but all-in-all, it does its job.
