Notification history (including notifications that are not included in events screen)

Some apps trigger notifications while in standby mode (e.g. Mitäkuuluu or Friends), which sometimes do not show up in the events screen (depending on the activity the notification relates to), but still are accompanied by a short vibration signal. When picking up the phone to check, people are confused because there is no sign of what has triggered the vibration.

To make things transparent for the user, I suggest to have a notification history to look up recent notifications. This could be a subordinate list on the events screen (below the current list of events, which are more important), less prominent (smaller font size) and keeping e.g. all notifications triggered within the last 24 hours. This could also be useful as a shortcut to recent events, e.g. a in order to re-visit a message one has already read but not yet responded to.

and what about feed which is also supposed to be shown on events screen? maybe just separate window accessed via pulley menu?

I don't know about the feed you mentioned... is it on the roadmap? What is it supposed to display?
