i'm using light flow on all of my devices (sig) and for a long time now.
yes i second that there are/were some glitches with lightflow on the n5 due to changes in kitkat.
nevertheless i got things 95% working well, i.e. by activating lightflow in accessibilty again, albeit it's not recommended as they say.
further i got about 4 or 5 updates for the app in the last 3 days so the guy is working hard as usual to get it running by making
the necessary adaptions.
right now i have nothing left to complain, deactivated the accessibiltiy settings again and all works fine and i'm using
it for battery status tasks as well as email, sms, mms, silent mode etc. etc. and all works well right now.
i agree with the dev that it's better to use apps instead of implementing thing into the rom since this gives much more freedom to use
different roms on different devices without having to adapt to the different settings on each phone. i like the non-bloat attempt
and then do the rest with apps as much as possible, using the same apps with each rom and each phone which allows to
purchase the best price for perfomance devices as well as to use the best rom for a specific phone, be it lack of availability
of other roms or be it for hardware specifications.
generally saying: with a good launcher and the right apps you get most of the stuff you need identically working
cross-device and cross-roms, sometimes even cross-platform on my ipod touch.
this attempt could even make me consider to stay with this rom and let a few features go which pac-rom has.
there is just one thing which i really need there which is the hybrid stuff.
i need another resolution for my navigation app than for others and want a larger status bar so that i can read more of the stuff
without glasses and for this i need hybrid per app settings. for the rest i must say that this rom is the smoothes experience i have
ever had with a custom rom with all those goodies. considering the moment in N5/KK/4.4 history it's almost unbelievable, except
if we consider about what his attempt to build his rom is, i mean compared to others, then it makes totally sense
by the way pie as an app works better than pie control in pac-man.
the toggeling is much quicker and more reliable and yes it's true, therefore it does look not just that perfect, but not bad either.
enough for now before getting too much OT, this was about light control "in-rom" or "in-app".
this is my opinion and my individual experience with this device and in general.
