With Rogers having at least a timed exclusive on the Moto X in Canada, figured I'd let my fellow Android Users on Koodo know how to achieve the elegant look of the Moto X (and BB OS10) on their Android device,

To achieve this look:
-Dynamic Notifications wakes my device
-I can expand to read the summary then let it sleep if it's not important
-When I manually wake it I see DashClock Widget being displayed on WidgetLocker showing the Notification
-I then unlock to go to my Homescreeen & am reminded of the Notification again via Floating Notifications, MissedIt & NotifierPro

What you'll need:
Android device running 4.2+ (for DashClock)
Dynamic Notifications--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
WidgetLocker--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
DashClock--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

You'll also need the following DashClock Extensions available from the Google Play Store:
-AnyDash Pro
-AppLauncher for DashClock
-DashClock Battery Extension
-DashClock Extension Facebook
-Gmail DashClock Extension
-Google Voice for DashClock
-Power Lock DashClock + Widget
I use them to track all my important Notifications & they all have an option to keep the Notification displayed even when the count is at zero so I can use the Extension to launch the Apps on my own.
There's other alternatives but without the Persistent option for me they're not as useful.

That covers the Lockscreen.

To get the look I have for my Notifications on my Homescreen, get NotifierPro--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de... and follow my other Guide here--> http://community.koodomobile.com/kood...

You'll now have the look & functionality of the Moto X's new Lockscreen with additional benefits provided by DashClock & other Notification Apps.

If you've got any questions about this setup, feel free to ask & I'll do what I can to answer them.
