Unification is a cross – platform notification sync to Windows 8 and RT
Notifications on the lock screen in Windows 8/RT is not exactly a new concept, but none of the previous versions of Windows was nothing like this. This feature allows third-party integrated applications in real time to display notifications for events like new emails, messages on Facebook, mentions on Twitter and the like. This function is quite useful, but lacks the ability to view all notifications in one place.
Earlier this month for the Windows Phone platform was released Unification app that stores all notifications under one roof. Now the version of Unification released on Windows 8/RT. Being cross-platform, the app is intended for automatic synchronization notification to all devices based on Windows, including WP7, WP8, Windows 8 and Windows RT.
Unification for Windows 8 and RT works in a similar way to its counterpart on Windows Phone, so to use it you’ll need to associate your Microsoft account, so you first need to log in to your Microsoft account (Outlook, Hotmail, MSN, Live, etc.) and to grant the application necessary permissions.
After login, you will be taken to a simple screen, which is the center for all your notifications. Under the notice highlighted three sections – «New», «Recent» and «Most active». Unification sinhroniziruete all notifications automatically, but you can do it manually from the app bar, which is opened by clicking the right mouse button. In the upper right corner is a button to go to the list of supported applications.
To begin receiving notifications, you must connect a compatible app to Unification. After connecting all notifications will begin to appear in the section «What’s New».
In the current list of supported apps have names like Windows 8, and Windows Phone, but in its current form, this list is not impressive. One hopes that the list will grow, and eventually many developers will add support for Unification in their applications.
