Interacting with events and alerts from lockscreen

I like the way alerts and events are shown on lockscreen. But I don't find convenient to scroll to concerned app or opening systematically events wall.

Wouldn't be more convenient to make clickable the events icon on lockscreen? I mean when you receive a SMS, just touching (or sliding) the SMS icon on the top left of lockscreen would take you to this new message without any another step.

Nice, isn't it?

In current design, if you swipe from down to up to enter events view, you can click the icons that are in the same position and that opens the application. There is no clickable items in screenlock to prevent accidental click. Most likely we are not changing the design since it would cause accidental presses and would cause confusion when device lock is on.

I see what you mean and understand it.

I like the N9 way of sliding events to the side. I had never an accidental click. Normaly the device is locked in your pocket. It would need some more unlikely accidental events than.

@rainisto: Maybe sliding on these icons as said @axaq could be the best compromise. I don't think slides are subject to accidental presses.
