Please consider upgrading to the paid version
THE FREE VERSION TAKES APPROX 12 FLASHES (20 SECONDS) TO CHANGE COLOR, the paid version can change pretty much every 2.5 seconds.
The full version supports over 600 different notifications
This program will allow you to control the notification color for
* SMS messages,
* MMS messages,
* New Gmail messages
* New e-mails
* Calendar reminders
* Missed calls
* Low battery
* Google Talk notifications / Hangouts
* No signal
* SMS Popup
* K9 mail
* Silent mode
You can also set repeating sounds or vibration patterns for each notification type.
We’ve now added a backup and restore option so you can backup your settings if trying out new roms or upgrading to the full version.
It’ll even push out notifications to your pebble smart watch.
Get your notifications straight to your lockscreen with out DashClock extension built into the app.
It works on non-rooted phones and also allows the colors to flash in succession, so if you have a new SMS and a missed call it can alternate between the two colors. You can also set which notification type has the highest priority and let it flash in just that one color.
Note that it will take over control of your notifications and you will therefore only get notifications for categories that the app allows.
The app requires you to add “accessibility” for “light flow lite” – as this allows better control of the notifications. We do not capture your data, this is just a standard message shown when adding accessibility. If you check out the app permissions the app does not require internet access, so you can rest assured that your data is safe.
See our FAQ for more details:
For a full changelog see here:
For a full list of permissions required and why see here:
Samsung phones when using accessibility may start to talk to you or disable certain features. The app will run without accessibility (with a more limited notification list) and samsung have acknowledged the issue and have a fix coming.
Not all phones support all colors.
The LED functionality does not work on most LG phones (except the nexus 4).
HTC Nexus One supports all colors, Motorola phones support most colors.
Most HTC phones support 3 colors, but ROOT is required and direct mode must be selected in the app
This is due to hardware limitations within the devices.
Some phones can only light up the notification while the screen is off.
Some phones cannot have their notification light always on
Some phones cannot have their notification blink and it will always be on
