banners by a million miles. It's out of the way, goes away and doesn't pause what you're doing.
Completely agree. Definitely prefer the banner. Though my Mom prefers the Alert as she said the Banner is harder to read; granted she doesn't play many games on her iPhone.

I could see how the alerts might be better for some, it's easier on the eyes and some could have a hard time w/the small print....but for me banner all the way, bring on the glasses! Lol.

Banners for sure. Although important things like reminders are nice to have an alert since they usually require an action right then and there.

Banners are nice.

But, isn't it weird how emails and Twitter message show massive, in the middle of the screen when the first message comes in on a locked iPhone screen?

I know I can press the lock button twice, and they start to stack, but...
