Works when it wants When I first used this extension on my chronus widget on my lockscreen it worked like a charm. Now after some of the latest Paranoid Android updates it will only show messages sporadically. Nexus 5 PA 4.5 Franco 59

Does as Advertised, But This extension does exactly what is stated, my only beef is that though a persistent icon can be shown, the unread count always changes to zero if the notification itself is cleared from the shade. I feel that there should be an option to have the unread count stay until the message itself is read in the app proper.
