* Definable LED colour
* Definable LED blink rate

The app is tested on the Galaxy Nexus (GSM, yakjuzs), results below:

=== Works ===
* Nexus (4.0.4)
* Nexus (4.1.1)
* Nexus (4.2.1) <- developer's current os

=== Don't Works ===
* Nexus (4.0.1)
* Emulator (4.0.1)
* Emulator (4.0.3)

The reason for the failure is because the system failed to recognize the "ACTION_POWER_CONNECTED broadcast" (detect charging cable is plugged in), this is fixed in version 4.0.4.

If the app failed to works on your device, set the app to "Debug mode" to check if this is the cause. For more information see help in app.

*** For Samsung Galaxy Nexus (4.2+) ***
Comment dated 2012-12-29, report "Daydream" feature does not conflict with the app, but as always the screen needs to be off for the LED to light up. Thanks you for the report.

*** For Samsung Galaxy S3 users ***
I noticed some users posted comments saying the app don't work on this device.
I did some searching, and found the SG3 actually have a built in charging LED indicator option.
The app maybe having conflict with this option, try disable this first. "Setting > LED indicator > Charging".
Again, as I don't own a GS3, appreciate anyone with a GS3 to test this out and report finding. Thank you.

    Even AFTER installing warerabbit app the LED color NEVER varies from the two (2) factory assigned colors (red & green). So if you own a Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE mod. # C811 (android 4.1.2) this app (even w/warerabbit installed) WON'T fully function properly!

    Sound to indicate plug and unplug is very useful but the LED is too small to be seen when my phone is charging in the corner of a big room.

    Charging % is never in sync with my actual %. Example: shows 79%, my phone is actually at 40% right now. Nexus 5 Stock Rom: Kit Kat 4.4.2

    I love this app simply because my phone never made a sound when I plugged or unplugged my phone to a charger. This app now lets me hear a sound when i plug or unplug my phone to a charger!!! It also has alot of other cool features that are awesome. THANKS :D
