The notifications in Android needs to be pulled down from the top bar. The system works very well, but some may not like the way it is. On Windows phone, notification pops up a message on top of the screen, no need to do any effort to see notifications. There are apps that can help you get Windows Phone or iPhone like notification on your Android phone. You can give your Android notifications a complete makeover with these apps.
In this post, you can find two apps available in both, free and paid versions. You can try out the free version first and if you’re satisfied and want more features, then you can get the paid ones. These apps can give a completely new and fresh look to Android notifications.
