Phone [Q] How to enable notifications on lock screen

Hi guys,

How do I enable lockscreen notifications on my HTC One? I just moved from the iOS ecosystem where each Facebook/Whatsapp/Skype message that comes through gets placed on the lockscreen for the convenience.

I've been searching for it on Google and nothing is working for me. I want it to be ON the lock screen page, I don't want to slide over to the next page just to view it (by the way the sliding feature sucks like hell, its not very responsive).

PS. I'm currently using NiLs but it's not doing what I want it to do specifically. I have to slide over to another page, which is a terrible way to view the notifications.

Thanks!

I'm not sure how it works on stock android, but afaik, on stock KK sense 5.5 you can only view missed calls, sms, calender etc.

Theres no native support for WhatsApp, Skype, Hangouts etc on lockscreen which sucks. I wish Google would integrate this or work with them to integrate this. I think you can do it using DashClock widgets or something.

I have considered getting the next iPhone partly because of this feature.

I have the iPhone 5 and I moved to Android because of the better compatibility with Google Glass. Right now it's pretty hard to adjust to the HTC One because of the great and vast differences.

I am sure you'll get used to it. Out of my group of friends and people I know, majority of them are moving from iOS to Android.

To be honest I am the only one who's tempted to move to iPhone. The things I love about the iPhone are - mechanical switch on side for toggles (auto rotate or vibrate mode), nice small size (fits in hand nicely), notifications on lockscreen, apple care, iCloud, iMessages. One thing is also the way that Apple pushes updates to its phones, in one go.

I tried using DashClock but it still doesn't seem to replace the lock screen. I'd like it gone if possible, or if I could replace it...
