Is there a way display a "balloon counter" notification on top of an application launcher icon (like iOS)?

  • Well, that would really only apply to apps that have a "message count" (or similar) to even display. Have you looked at the iPhone-esque launchers already in the Play Store?

    Also, we really prefer questions that ask about a problem to be solved rather than an app to be found.

    I tweaked the language to make it a question about a problem to be solved.

Go Launcher EX looks like you can turn that on, at least for some apps.

Related is the Next Notification plugin for Next Launcher 3D.
