1. A method performed by one or more processors of a mobile computing device, comprising:associating a first type of event with a persistent event notification type;
associating a second type of event with a non-persistent event notification type, wherein the first type of event is one of a text message and an email, the second type of event is the other of the text message and the email, and the associating of each of the first and second type of events is based at least in part on a user's preferences;
presenting, along a first edge of a touch-sensitive display of the mobile computing device, a status bar indicating at least one of a time, a remaining battery strength, or a signal strength;
detecting an event comprising reception of the first type of event or the second type of event;
presenting, along an edge of the touch-sensitive display of the mobile computing device, a persistent banner alert in response to detecting the first type of event, wherein the persistent banner alert is separate from the status bar;
presenting, on the touch-sensitive display of the mobile computing device, a non-persistent banner alert in response to detecting the second type of event, wherein the non-persistent banner alert is separate from the status bar;
dismissing the persistent banner alert based on the user swiping the persistent banner alert off the touch-sensitive display; and
automatically dismissing the non-persistent banner alert after expiration of a time period.
