Here at Aviate, we’re always thinking of new ways to make your homescreen even simpler and easier to use.
One of the most requested features you’ve asked for is a way to see the number of missed or unread communications you have on your messaging/SMS, phone, and email apps. We have good news!
Starting today, Aviate now supports notification badges for essential communications apps. Download the latest version of Aviate to see it in action. Aviate is still in private beta, so use the code HONEYBADGER.
Aviate now supports notification badges for:
• Unread emails via the Gmail app*
• Missed calls via your favorite Phone app
• Unread text messages from your default SMS app**
• Apps with notification badges on the default Samsung launcher
We’d love to hear what you think about the latest update. Developers, you too! Tweet us @aviate to talk about how we can work together to expand badging support for your apps.
*The Gmail app must be at least v2.3.6 for Gingerbread devices or at least v4.0.5 for Honeycomb / ICS devices
**Google Hangouts is currently not supported
