    This is the only thing I miss from my Blackberry. I know I can add a message icon on the homeccreen but I want to have 1 inbox on my homescreen that displays an unread message count and the inbox includes:
    -all missed calls
    -voicemails
    -facebook msgs
    -texts
    -email
    -etc.

    Is there an app for this? or a way to do it i'm missing? search resulted in unadressed topics

    Nope, you will have to click universal inbox and go into it to see that stuff. No counter.

    no app, no widget, nobody has ever wanted this? why would I want 5+ icons on my homescreen when I could just use one combined???

    is there anything similar to this someone could suggest?

    I'm looking for the same thing. It seems like an obvious thing to include or develop.

    Why not have all of your unread items in one place (like universal inbox) and be able to sort it by Unread?

    Seems crazy that BlackBerry has had this for years and Andriod doesn't have it now.

    closest thing i've found and pretty much does the job is the launcher pro and you make the dock icons as unread messsage counters... works great but not 100% what I am looking for
