    On my S2, when receiving a text - I got a swipe bar over the lock screen... swipe it to go directly to the text message. Now on the S4 - I can see the notification - but there is no shortcut to get directly to THAT message. Any ideas??

    Tap the message and a large square becomes highlighted at the bottom of the screen. Swype the square and that message will open up directly.

    Or put a lockscreen shortcut to the messaging app and swype it's icon.

    The problem I'm having with this is that when I swipe the lockscreen area (and not a shortcut) it goes to the shortcut app I last used. It won't go to the homescreen. This is annoying as it requires backing out of that app. Am I missing something?

    Your first suggestion is interesting, but still several finger actions. I ended up going back to Handcent which has the lockscreen popup.
