This program changes the style of notifications
when you missed some phone call, or received a new text messages.
It just gives better enjoyments to Windows phones,
and adds a bit of "spice" to your everyday phoning and messaging.

Extra Notifications alerts you about event, by using one of the selected theme,
which simulates computer interfaces and activities, from known motion pictures.
There are plenty computer concepts in history of cinematography, better or worse.
It's enjoyable to encounter some similar feelings, even in small screen of mobile device.


Original version of this program was designed in 2009,
tribute to one of the best sci-fic movies forever: Alien,
what was realized on May 1979, directed by Ridley Scott.
Although in those times, we haven't computers in life, and even haven't imagined about,
now, we can only smile, how it was designed, especially for spacecraft needs.

Below, you can compare, how this program looks in reference to original idea:

This program is not a video player of piece of movie, it doesn't use video records.
