[TIMOB-1466] Support for Android notification bar
|Labels||android, feature, notification, status|
Many Android apps notify the user of an event by a Notification Sound/Vibrate and then they put an item into the notification/status bar where the user can easily retrieve it.
Examples of apps that use this:
Gmail - incoming mail triggers alert. User pulls down notification bar and sees new messages, click to view
WeatherChannel - constant icon in notification bar to show temperature of chosen city
IM/Chat - number of new messages shown/status etc
Access to this seems to be missing from Titanium, I think it would be a very valuable addition. Increasingly Apps monitor situations and provide instant feedback to the user is very important. I realise that there are other ways to notify the user, such as by using an Alert or Ti.UI.createNotification. Both of these create a visual interruption in the screen which take focus from what the user might be doing. Also once these alerts have gone the user cannot then find what the notification was.
I don't know if the iPhone has a similar paradigm.
