I'm designing a heavy content app and I first proposed all the notifications to be presented at one notification screen (option 1). The screen is a list and each item redirects the user to the proper screen inside other sections.
My doubt is, do this pattern would really help users to find important content or it only overwhelms users with duplicated information? Would it be better to only mark the section with a badge? (option 2)
The new information would not necessarily be presented on the main screen of the sections, forcing the user to navigate to find it.
Also, there is option 3, but I believe this confuses the user because it he could interpret that there is different information inside each section.
