** Samsung users with talkback or keyboard issues, see our website for potential workarounds and see here: http://developer.samsung.com/forum/thread/samsung-devices-and-accessibility-services/77/204387 for progress on this bug with samsung. **
NOTE - the LED functionality does not work on most LG phones. The Samsung galaxy nexus is supported, the S3 is supported. HTC phones usually require "root"
BEFORE GIVING THE APP A 1 STAR RATING IF IT DOESN'T WORK ON YOUR PHONE LET US KNOW AND WE'LL SEE WHAT WE CAN DO!
Light Flow - Lite allows you to take control of your notification LED or trackball colors - even including cycling automatically through all the colors of outstanding notifications. If you've come from using BeBuzz / BerryBuzz on Blackberry phones, then give LightFlow a try!
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 250 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.
* 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 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:
Not all phones support all colors.
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
★ REBOOT YOUR PHONE AFTER THE UPGRADE ★

I liked it untill the light just always went off and came on for no reason! Would be good if it worked right but that would hopefully be an easy fix

I like to use my phone as a bedside clock but I'm dock of the charge light shining in my face while I fall asleep. I can set a schedule now.

Great app if you like all of your information sent to 3rd parties, read what the program has access to.

Messed up my EVO 3d now half my app and shortcut will not work and won't let me uninstall. Worst led app I've tried

Sometimes this app randomly doesn't want to stop flashing after the text message notification is rcvd. You have to force close to stop the blinking!

Working on my new Droid 3. Will probably upgrade to paid version. The worst part is just choosing what color you want for what.

I really like the functionality of this app...however, i noticed my battery drained significantly faster after i installed and configured it. Checked my battery stats and this was the culprit, it keeps the phone in "awake" mode when your screen is locked.

Buying the paid version now. BTW: Light blue is really pretty. ;)

Only app that let's you assign led color to different type of message! Works great, however, will randomly flash green with no messages.

Works well, highly customizable. Much better than having all the same green notifications. Definitely works on Droid 3, other comments incorrect.
