    Hello all - just upgraded to the Galaxy Nexus, and with my old droid (HTC incrediable) whenever there were unread messages (Outlook/Gmail/SMS) the unread number would appear on the icon. With the nexus the indicator at the top notifies me when i have new email, but the icon on the screen, or docked at the bottom do not show the unread count. I know there are other widgits which can do this, but you cant dock widgets to the bottom of the screen (the 4 icons) was wondering if there is something i am missing, or was this an HTC Sense feature? or what. Was super-useful.

    Thanks, and I hope everyone has a great new year.

    Cheers-
    A.

    You're not missing anything as this isn't possible at the moment on stock ICS. Like you said though, there are 3rd party apps (launchers and notification apps) that will do this. Launcher pro, ADW with adw notifier, unread count apps come to mind.

    I believe the OP is speaking of a little tiny unread count bubble on top of the icon like the SMS icon when he has 3 unread messages.

    I don't think unread counts are available in 3rd party apps as well as stock ICS. I miss the feature as well.

    Launcher pro still shows unread sms count, but go launcher doesn't. I use handcent and it isn't showing it within the app, I emailed the developer.

    Google changed the gmail app over the summer which broke all 3rd part gmail notifications.
