+ By Rage Consulting
It goes without saying that this app is only useful for those devices with LED or trackball notification feature.
Light Flow brings to Android one of the best features of BlackBerries (BeBuzz/BerryBuzz BB apps), that's it, fully customize your notificationLED colors to see at first sight what it's about or even who's the one who has called/messaged you.
The Lite version allows you to set the notification LED color for missed calls, calendar reminders, e-mails, SMS, MMS, low battery, charged battery, Bluetooth on, charging battery, no signal, phone signal or GTalk chats as well as some miscellaneous apps. However, Pro version includes all of these + unlocks all restrictions and allows you to set notification LED color of about 140 different apps/system features.
From "Additional apps supported by Light Flow" you will see a list of dozens apps notifications supported by this app (Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Ebay, Evernote...), however, all of them are only available in the paid version.
You can also set some other notifications preferences like repeating sounds or vibration patters. It even supports flash in succession, for when you've received different notifications inputs. Once everything is set you can backup/restore your configuration.
Truly useful if your device support it.
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
★ Reboot your phone after an upgrade if having problems ★

Comments and ratings for Light Flow Lite - LED Control
I hate this app now for the reason that I can no longer clear the light flow icon from the notification bar at the top of forced to run. Retarded
It took me a few tries to find a notification program that worked well, and this was it.
Does anyone know if there is one for a HTC one?
Great app, but with the new update they removed the clear option "Pull down notification bar." 5 stars if it comes back. 2 for now since I can't use it with the stock SMS app unless I choose manual.
Google just updated Talk to Hangouts. I am no longer getting notifications. When will you update the app with the new version?
