Of all the iOS notification concepts I’ve seen so far, Andreas‘ may be the best looking and most functional of them all. It takes on an interesting approach with a dedicated app that aggregates notifications, a revamped notification display, and a new and improved locked home screen.

Andreas makes it clear that this is merely his own concept, and not a leak from Apple, nor would it be developed for jailbroken devices. He certainly put much effort into it, posting an elaborate FAQ section on his blog.

All of us are expecting Apple to reveal a revamped notification system built into the upcoming iOS 5, and as Italian blog iSpazio puts it, this concept is a very intriguing example of how the substandard notification system can be improved.
