NiLS+ is an extension app for NiLS - Notifications on Lock Screen.
If you don't know what NiLS is - See it on Google Play.

Features:
NiLS Floating Panel provides a better way to display and interact with notifications:
- Displayed on top of your lock screen, no matter if it support lock screen widgets or not and it don't need NiLS widget to be placed.
- Slide notification left or right to dismiss.
- Slide notifications list down to dismiss all.
- Slide notification icon right to open notification. (just like on iOS)
- Click to show a preview, scroll down or up in the preview to read all text.
- Slide notification icon on preview to perform additional actions (if available), such as gmail archive, reply missed call with SMS, etc..
- Set position and size, anywhere you want on your lock screen. (be careful not to prevent access to locker icon)
- Set any colors you want as your title color, text color, icon background and notification background.
- Top, Bottom or Center vertical alignment of the notifications list.

A bit laggy but works on my Xperia Z 4.2.2.
Would be great if both apps would be merged.

Ok, works very good.

suggestion: build some kind of filter, I get notifications from xprivacy, titanium media sync and apps I installed through the web playstore. Notifications which I personally find not interesting enough to display on the lockscreen. Maybe something like: "press 5 seconds on the notification to put the app on the ignorelist"

I would pay for nils+ by the way, how much is it gonna cost?

@Roymam I have NiLS from the Play Store installed as of right now... do I have to uninstall that version, then download and install v1.2.5r2, then download and install NiLS+ v0.5r5?! Thanks man, awesome app, been using it for about 2 weeks now, used to use DashClock but find this much better!!

EDIT: Nevermind v1.2.5r2 just went live on the Play Store!

You right - you can set to ignore apps on NiLS settings.
I cannot guarantee prices yet. But the introduction price will be as low as I can.

Does this work with widgetlocker?, i have the original nils on my phone and tablet running on top of widgetlocker

My other question is, does this have the ability to keep the notifications even if theyre no longer on the status bar or if i click them? In the original Nils it doesnt do this even if i check the option to do it
I really would like to have that option
