Concept Art: Windows Phone Notification CenterMarch 4, 2013 3 Comments
One thing still missing from our beloved Windows Phone operating system is a constant notification center. Late last year Microsoft claimed that it was coming to Windows Phone 8 but they ran out of time. Also, it is rumored to be coming in form of an update.
We have even seen homebrew apps that are sideloaded to do the job.
Here we have a pretty cool concept of a notification center for Windows Phone whcih is actually envisioned to be part of the volume controls. The only constant piece that is always able to go on screen and wouldn’t go against the simple design of Windows Phone.
The notification center simply can slide down from the volume controls when on screen.

The notification centre serves as the central location for all the notifications in the apps you have. Much like on Android and iOS, it’s essentially a notification shade.(You’ll be able to choose the apps you want in the pivot structure in settings, or in the apps themselves. All notifications will be in there though.). You can swipe left and right to filter through apps and check what’s happening in each one. Time can be sorted (PAST HOUR, PAST 24 HOURS, PAST WEEK, ALL TIME) to adjust how many recent notifications they want to see. No, they do not go away, but much like what’s already done in the me tile, new ones will appear highlighted. More notifications load when using anything longer than 24 hours.
What do you guys think?
