For the most part it is OK, but I still don't fully trust it. It is consistently inconsistent... Completely stock over here.

Sorry to disagree, but it works perfectly for me. Never failed in any way and I'm using pretty much everything it has to offer (repeating vibrations, repeating sound notifications, the led itself and much more)...
Are you sure you activated the service in accessibility settings + access to notifications in security settings?

I've had the same experience. No issues at all using Lightflow on my N5. No random colours, no missed alerts, everything smooth as butter. I'm running stock, no root.

I'd suggest contacting the developer and see if they can help. If it's a bug then it'll never get fixed if not reported.

I found Lightflow to be a buggy, inconsistent mess as well.. all I wanted was a single setting to speed up the led light globally.
