    LED Notification Color App

    Hey Guys,

    So I've had my X for a few weeks now, and for the most part its been great.

    I've wanted to see if there was a way to change the colors of the LED notifications for a while now. I know there are apps out there that do it (Missed Call, Blink) but none of them seem to function correctly.

    Are these apps supposed to work on the X? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a different app that lets me set different colors for email/SMS/Missed Calls that is confirmed to work on the X?


    Thanks,

    Terps

    Ive tried a couple, but even with Handcent, the color of the light changes, but not how often it flashes. So it still only blinks about once every 4-5 seconds, so you need to watch your phone for at least that long to verify that you have no messages waiting.

    If anybody has found an app like this that actually works on the DX please let us know.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the responses. I downloaded handcent and have started using it. I like the feel of it and the customization that I can do, so I guess I'll just use this until an app is released that customizes the LED colors for the DX.

    I'm not really sure why this isn't an option given in the generic droid settings. Seems like a commonplace idea that you'd want the LED color to be different for different notifications.

    As for the frequency of the flashing, I agree that the flashing in "fast" mode is a little slow, and the custom mode doesn't seem to do anything (I tried 1000ms on, 100 ms off and it went at the same rate of "fast" mode with about 3-4 seconds between pings). However, when I have it set to default, the light stays on constantly, so thats what I have it set to right now.

    Blink, Missed Call and Missed Reminder...I was thinking one of these allows you to set the speed of the LED blinking but I cannot recall right off the top...

    I know that Blink and Missed Call do not change the LED Notification colors on my DX as of yesterday. I can't imagine that it'd be able to change the speed of the blinking if you're using Handcent bc you have to deactivate handcent notifications when you use Missed Call (and I'm assuming Blink as well) which will mean that the LED color won't be what you want it to be.

    Missed reminder successfully blinks the LED color once in the test mode (but then does not continuously blink the color.) And even then, when I call my phone from another line and miss the call, the LED blinks default Green, not the color Missed Reminder is supposed to blink :P

    Tried light flow. Wasn't impressed. Aside from the accessability it needed (copying texts?), the actual led colors were mildly disappointing. I understand there are only so many color combos you can do, but still, it was lacking. Imho, it was great initiative, poor execution.

    *edit* it does work tho...

    Try LED Me Know. I don't think it worked for me when I tried it, but it was a while back.
