Motorola recently launched the much awaited Moto X smartphone. Along with the variety of customizing options offered, another feature that caught the eyes of Android users is its Active Notifications feature. This feature automatically informs you of new messages by lighting up the lockscreen. When you receive a notification, the screen of your smartphone turns on with a small display and with a swiping gesture, you can jump directly to the displayed message. This feature can now be used in your ICS and JB phones using the ActiveNotifications app.
The push notifications that appear on the status bar is one of the best features in the Android OS. However for this function to work, an individual has to first unlock the screen. But Android users running on the Jelly Bean 4.2 can now get notifications on their lock screen using an app which is aptly named as Lock Screen Notifications Widget. It creates a widget on the lock screen that shows the notifications.
