iPhone Notifications Better But Still Not as Good
disclaimer: I'm not an android fan-boy. i love my iPhone. i give my unbiased opinion no matter what
android got notifications right. apple did the best they could to emulate it without stealing too much, but is still not as good as android notifications. that can't be disputed.
It's definitely better than the system that used to be in place.

The only think I wish I had was a notification light, like the one I had on my BB. But then again, it's not to hard to hit the home button to see if there are any notifications on the lock screen.

Yeah, the iOS 5 notifications are definitely an improvement, but for me it's a downgrade. I've been using LockInfo for a couple years and LockInfo was 100% perfect and the way the notifications should be. I originally used it to replace the stock iOS 5 system, but LockInfo isn't working that reliably on OS 5 yet. Most of my notifications don't even show up right away or at all, unless it's mail or SMS. But Twitter, Words With Friends, FaceBook, etc rarely show up on LockInfo at the time the sound for the notification rings. So I had to go back to the stock system, which works flawlessly. It's just so limited coming from a fully functioned LockInfo groove on OS 4!

I agree with the app badge going away if I clear out the notification in in notification center. I would also like the calendar event notification alerts to stay in notification center until I dismiss them. Currently they clear once the event starts. What if you don't check the phone until after? No alert and you might miss event. That one to me is easy.
Reminders should have option to display in calendar as well. That we we could have a one glance option.

Like the OP said, I would LOVE app badges to clear when I "clear" them in notification center. I don't get the point of clearing in notification center if you have to still go into the app to clear the badge. I also wish more apps would be iCloud compatible so I don't have to keep clearing notifications on iPad/iPod touch etc.

I understand what you're saying, because I've used my calendar that way in the past to remind me to do things, but that's not really an event. It's a task that I have to complete by a certain date / time.
