Slide up/down drawer for notifications

Hi guys,


So I've been doing some searching and I haven't found anything dicussing this point. The application I'm using receives push notifications.


What I'd like to do is implement the same experience users get when they're using BBM and they receive a message from another chat, you know that drawer that slides up from the bottom of the screen showing you who the message is from and the first few words. I thought I'd find a ready component like a sliding drawer that acts as a manager but unfortunately it doesn't exist, or at least I haven't had any luck finding it!


Has anyone ever attempted to implement this? And if not, any ideas on where to start?


I'm developing for OS 4.6+


Thank you in advance
