If you are the type of person always looking for better notification options on your Windows Phone 7, this may be of interest. XDA member the0ne let us know about Notification Concept. The idea is to have one place for all new events and updates, like calls, mail, and messages. And social network updates, like Facebook and Twitter. Also all calendar reminders–alarms, dates, notes, tasks, etc.–appear in the Notification Center.
You can interact with the toast notifications by tapping on them. The toast then launches the Notification Center, or takes you directly to the application.
