    Light flow seems to be using a large percentage of my power these last 2 days. Anyone else experiencing this or have any suggestions on lowering the power usage? Light flow does light up the led for me but I always grab my phone with in a few minutes so its not like the led is on for very long.

    App used to control the led color and rate for missed calls, voicemails, texts, etc. Let's you customize it all.

    lol, that's crazy. No I've never even seen lightflow on my list in battery stats.

    Maybe you're using some setting I'm not. I use it to make my text message notification green, missed called red, emails white, and have the blink setting on fast.

    I use it for pretty much the same thing, missed calls and voice mails also. I do have the paid version if that matters.

    Holy crap man. Thats kinda strange. I use Light Flow, and it's using only ~4%. Double digits is crazy.

    Free or paid version? Thinking of uninstalling and switching to the free version to see if that fixes it.

    I'd kill the app, reboot, see if it's just a display bug?

    Also what does the paid version do that the free version doesn't?

    Free version. I only have the app to change the LED for Missed Calls, SMS/MMS, Charging, Charged, and Low Battery.

    It just adds support for more applications.

    Killed app and rebooted, no change so not a display bug.

    Not sure what the paid version adds, just bought it to support a good program that doesn't price gouge people.

    I think I am going to uninstall and and reinstall and see if that fixes it tomorrow.
