Working like a charm though it's a pity that the notification does not get away once it's read

Anyways, awesome job, I know there's a lot of people who has been waiting to something like this

try to make the UI more holo-like.. to blend in.

add a little blue/grey. but not too much background transparency.

Thanks for the feedback:
1. Notifications clear - I'm planning to implement full notifications clear when screen is unlocked, any thoughts on this?
2. Holo look - I'll raise opacity to 75% (currently it's 50%), I think this will make the gray and blue colors more noticeable.

how about creating an option to let the users decide the background opacity?
default is the original JB grey..

edit: can you also implement -> slide to remove (individual remove per app notifications)?

also i noticed your permissions are "prevent phone from sleeping"
why is it that way? means our phone wont go into deep sleep right? :S

" Slide to dismiss" is impossible to implement on lock screen widgets (or any widgets at all). Must have buttons.

The permission is needed to turn the screen on when notification arrives. The phone will act normally and will go to deep sleep if needed.
