So with Motorola X Active Display you will see all notification directly on your locked screen itself. Time to forget see the notification once when the device is unlocked. Once downloaded, you need to enable ActiveNotification by going through Settings. You also have choice on what kind of notifications that you want to show on Lockscreen. People like me would like to choose only Email/WhatsApp notification. Also if notification disturbs you, you can select “Sleep at Night” to stop notification while you are asleep.Moto X Active Notification Settings

Sadly this app is only limited to phone/tablet on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS and right now as we have only limited phones with 4.3 Jelly Bean version, it compatible with Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Galaxy Nexus, New Nexus 7 2013 model and Samsung Galaxy S4, Xperia Z & HTC One Google editions. Once you get a device with Android 4.3 on your phone, you will be able to install this app. It also doesn’t even require your phone to be rooted and the app developer is working on to bring it for other devices on Android 4.2, 4.1 and 4.0 version.Moto X Display
