Do you use the drop down notification center much?
Since having my 4s since the launch I'm finding that I hardly ever use the drop down menu. In fact, I sometimes forget that it is even there. This surprises me because I used it all the time when I had android phones and I couldn't wait to get in on iOS. Anyone else ever forget that it's there?

I use it all the time for a quick glance at what's going on on my iPhone. I also come from TeamJailbreak and LockInfo was one of my favorite apps -- I wish the iOS 5 notification center was available to drop down from the lock screen!

I think it'll be opened up for a few, but some widgets will wreak havoc on battery life and that's not gonna happen lolCleveland

And, I'm not trying to push my preference on others, so I've got no reason to go and join an android forum to talk about how awesome iPhone is. That's like going to a KKK meeting and trying to show people the latest queen latifah movie...

I'll use it more when the jail breakers release some stuff i use often that populates the drop down menu...as it sits, i rarely use it at all."Speed has never killed anyone; suddenly becoming stationary...that's what gets you." - Jeremy Clarkson

I use it very often to find appointments , weather, and quick glacé at my emails. This is my favorite feature of iPhone. I am hoping that they will expand the functionality more by giving access to 3rd party apps. They should make it available in lock screen also. I love iOS.

I use it quite a bit. The thing is that when I see a badge on an app I don't think to pull down the notification center, I just click the app I see the badge for.

Wow, surprised to see that not many utilize this feature!
I use it all the time. I have to make sure I have clients' bookout dates literally at my fingertips and it's easier than having to open up and scroll through the calendar.
Also, since I am used to having the separate folders, ringtones and notifications for email (from my BlackBerry days) it's the easiest way to check which emails just came in and from where without having to check each account since the one email icon on the home screen bunches them all together. I just have to check and clear it often because it only gives you the 10 most recent emails.Formerly PCgirl on CB.com and BBForums

I use it 1% of the time. I love the lock screen notifications, but the pull down I rarely use.
