    I see what you're saying now, and I don't consider pulling down the shade and swiping over to the widget screen to be from within my app myself. I guess it depends on what widgets you use and what you use them for, since Android also allows split screen apps on phones and screen overlays, which can mitigate the need for widgets in the first place. For my usage for sure. Everyone is different.

    You don’t have to consider anything, accessing widgets form within apps is incredibly useful.

    Don’t really find split screen or overlays useful on a phones, the display is way to small. it’s pretty useful on an iPad Pro with a 12.9 inch display though.

    Then I’ll be clearer, the notification tray is not inside the app. So sliding over from the notification tray is not accessing from within the app. It’s accessing from the notification tray.

    Yes you do all of that from within the app, or the home screen, or the lock screen. You don’t have to exit the app like you do with android.

    It’s really not a complicated concept to grasp.

    The only notification style I prefer from Android is a phone call not taking up my entire screen and instead coming up as a banner so it doesn't interrupt whatever I'm currently doing on my phone. It's all I want.
    And looks like I'm getting it with iOS 14, finally.

    So is 14 adding any customization for notifications? I didn’t watch.

    My Samsung would give me ghost notifications all the time. My SMS tone would go off and there would be no new text messages there. It was infuriating to me. I would get delayed notifications, like one app would receive them but not show them and then when another app actually came through and showed me a notification, all the others would then drop too.

    I vastly prefer iOS notifications. I go light with them and turn off notifications for almost everything except calls, messages and emails. iOS is easier to do in that regard as there's an option upon first opening an app. Also, the permissions that a number of Android apps wanted was ludicrous. No calculator app ever needs to view or control my messages, location or calls...
