Superflous information in Today Display

On current screen shots of the today app, there is information indicated that I
feel should not be present on release, examples...

"No pending events or tasks"
"No new messages"

I understand that this information is handy during the devel/proof of concept
stage, as it shows the capabilities, but when we come to release I would rather
a lack of display implied nothing new to be actioned as opposed to be told this
was the case.

We could either use the freed up space to show additional information, e.g.
missed calls, showing who and when if space is available.

Or just have a "cleaner" more minimal interface (showing off more of the desktop
back ground).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

The home page has been redesigned and now doesn't show superfluous information.
If you find this is still a problem after testing more recent snapshots, please

oh, don't worry, I didn't take offence - furthermore, I agreed with you too - I
started the redesign before reading this report :) You can see what the homepage
currently looks like at

how long that will stay active..)

wow, this makes me look silly... I was replying to an e-mail I thought was a bug
comment - the e-mail:

"Hi Chris

Thanks for the quick response, and in hindsight the word "superfluous" was
possible overly critical, it was not meant that way.

I'm not in a position to test until the product comes out, but when it does,
I'll be happy to supply more bugs if applicable

Thanks for the quick reply."
