Windows Phone user Jrtorrents has created an interesting concept for a notification centre for the OS.
He notes that while many feels Live Tiles are notification enough, others feel the OS lacks a centralized notification system as found in iOS and android.
While I think we have seen enough of Windows Phone 8 to know it will not have any notification centre, it has not stopped Jrtorrents from detailing his own concept.
Notification Tile will act as a notification center where all your notifications will be pulled in.
Just like a normal tile it will rotate to how more notifications (as shown in the above gif); when double tapped as it is when launching an app , it expands showing more a more detailed notification centre.
The idea is elegant without breaking the tile-based paradigm.
