Message count on email & sms icon?

Oct 8, 2012
I did some searches and didn't have much luck finding anything. So I do appologize if this has been addressed already.

I would like my email and sms icon to display the number of unread messages in the upper corner much like on Iphone or other Android roms.

Can this be done? How?

I did see a few of the themes in this forum have screenshots where this appears to be the case....but cannot confirm.

Thank you for your help.
