Default [APP] Windows Phone 7 like notifications (experimental)

Hello! Here's an experimental application I've been working on as a side project. I'm not sure whether or not I'll continue it, but I thought I'd share what I have so far.

This application will display the Windows Phone 7 style notification using the top bar on the top coming down and displaying the notification. The current application you are using will be paused until you either ignore or view the notification.

To view the notification, click on the blue bar.
To ignore the notification, double-tap anywhere that is NOT the blue bar (grayed out screen).

Here's an example:

BEFORE:


AFTER:


To use it, simply install the CAB file below. Then run it from the start menu, and keep it running in the background.
Also, disable any "Display message on screen" options for your current notifications.

Currently the only supported notifications are New Email and New SMS.

to be honest the splash screen ruins it; i hope that's just because it's an early version. It also didn't distinguish between email and text when i tested... still said text when i got a new email. nice idea though... future version should auto-start with winmo imo.

It can auto-start with Winmo if you add a shortcut to your startup folder. And also, the splash screen is only there because it's not set to hide as soon as it runs. I'll see about removing it in later versions.

Also, I'm not sure about the text/email issue, I'll look into it.

-What other notifications should be added? Missed call is a good one I suppose, but what should it link to?

I can't do that, because not everybody has Sense. Also, I need an actual EXE file to link to. I'll do some looking around.
