Notification-Center-concept

The Notification Center in iOS is still incredibly basic. Apple has made some excellent improvements to the Today view, but the Notifications side leaves a lot to be desired. A new concept video below demonstrates some of the things Apple could do to change this in iOS 9.

I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like the Notifications view. I don’t think it does anywhere near as much as it should — it’s essentially just a list of notifications you may not have seen — but it’s ugly, overwhelming, and mostly just unhelpful.

The video below from Mobile Creative shows how Notification Center could fulfill its full potential by making your notifications interactive. It has quick reply for messages and tweets, the ability to see and share the latest stories from your favorite news apps, and the ability to like Instagram photos.

It provides us with instant access to some of the most common functions in our apps, so that we don’t have to open them up individually to use them; it can all be done from inside Notification Center quickly and easily.

This would be infinitely more useful than the Notification Center we have today, and it makes me even more disappointed that Apple isn’t doing more to make this feature better. Perhaps that will change with iOS 9. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
