Sounds like progresss.. To spice up the bounty a bit I have $5 ready to send if the following is implemented in the final product.

Options for:
- What flashes (calls, sms, email, optional tweet)
- How long those flashes are for (1 hr for calls, sms, 5 seconds for email)
- Flash types.. example: alternating flashes for call, dual flash for SMS, fast
single flash for tweet.

Thanks for helping make this program come to life.. Great idea!

The way I had it / kinda want it... is for the camera LED to flash only on incoming calls and/or texts...whatever... but not to continue to flash as a reminder...maybe that could be an option.

I'm open to anything obviously since its a step in the right direction.

I am super excited. I really appreciate your effort in creating this.

UPDATED VERSION NOW AVAILABLE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=14961111

Alright, here we go. This app will flash your LED when you receive a phone call or when you get a new text message. Unfortunately it can't do it when you get new emails since there is no standard system notification for email among the many email apps (Email, Gmail, K9, etc.).

Here's a screenshot of the app, Flashlight Alerts:



The APK is attached and it is also available in the Market for $2.99 if you'd like to donate:



It was actually a real pain to put together since there is no standard flashlight API prior to Froyo, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. Let me know if you run into any issues!

PS: I would appreciate it if somebody could check if this thing is actually in the Market on their EVO. It's showing up there on my Nexus One but not on my EVO. Hmm... Fixed this. Stupid bug in the Market makes it so that if you mark your app as requiring a camera with flash, it doesn't show up for EVO.

Compatability Notes: This version will work with the EVO, Desire, and Droid. If you have a Froyo phone (Nexus One) you should be able to use the Froyo version (in the Market or later in this thread, post #65).

You're very welcome. It's a great tweak! Oh no problem with the other notifications, take your time. It was just a suggestion to really expand the app
