yes it does....but not like iOS shows them. all notifications are in the notification bar at the top of the screen....this is accessible from the lock screen. a little icon (its different for every app) shows up in the upper left corner. you pull the notification bar down and you can see the notification right there....usually there is enough info right there that you never have to open up the app, and you can just swipe it away (just slide it off the screen to the right or left) or you can tap on it, and it will bring you right into the app. also, keep in mind that the nexus 5 has a multi color LED light that you can set up to notify you of notifications. set any color you want for any notification you want with an app like lightflow. its a really awesome features that iPhone's don't have. I don't even have to turn on my phone to see that i got a notification.

Yes, but they are all in the notification tray. Just pull down the tray at the lockscreen. If you have a security method set, you have to unlock the phone first.
