Exclamation [FINISHED] Camera LED Flash w/incoming call/sms

App is out there on the market now thanks to rdude.

Here is his post (post #35 from this thread)

The .apk is on post #35 but yall should go buy it off the market and show some support.

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.

I slapp some bassssse (Jamaican accent) too, but I just keep my screen face up so I can see when someone is calling ?

Although, the LED flash would be pretty cool considering I use a seidio case/holster combo -

Default Re: [APP REQUEST] Camera LED Flash w/incoming call/sms

Once you have this feature on a phone ..its the best. It works excellent. I really hope someone can hook this up!

I would think this would be a bad idea for the same reason all those *led* flash light apps warn you not to over use for fear of burning out...If you get a much of notifications that would mean constant use.

I used to have this on my old Motorola V6 MAXX by editing a file that made the notification LED flash when you got a call or whatever. It was the best for at the bar or somewhere loud...like in the car when you are cranking the tunes!

I'd be willing to throw $5.00 ( i know, its nothing ) to someone who can do this, maybe there will be others.

MODS - If this request is in the wrong location, please move it accordingly. Much thanks.
I'd be very interested in this (or an app that makes the front LEDs flash different colors, if possible). In fact, I'll raise the bounty up to $25 to the dev who creates such an app/tweak . I'd love to have it, it would just be fun

You could disable it. Thats what I did on the MAXX....had it set for on the "loud" profile so it would only flash then.

This doesn't sound like a bad idea to me either.
