Hey all,

You may recall the Flashlight Alerts app I released last year for the HTC EVO and a few other phones:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=35

Originally, the app would flash your LED when you received a phone call or when you got a new text message. Right after releasing, I got a bunch of requests for new features and supporting new phones.

Well, I finally found the time and I've now expanded the app so it works with many more phones (including the latest EVO 4G update and Nexus S), and added support for Gmail, Email, K-9 Mail, and Google Voice!

As always, the APK is attached for XDA members.

The app is also available in the Market for $2.99 if you would like to donate:

I can see how this can be really useful. Is it possible to make it automatically activate when the phone is set to silent mode? This way when the phone is set to vibrate or sound it not light up?

Many thanks mate. Been waiting for this king of application. Works perfectly on my HD2.
I love it!!! Two thumbs up. Will definitely buy it on Android Market.

What about additional settings to configure the blinking interval of the flashlight?

I totally agree!
Actually I believe the best feature (in my case) would be to allow the LED to flash every xx seconds. So when my GS2 lies on the table and when I have unread SMS / mail / voice message or a missed call it can remind me to check it!
Perfect settings would allow to set the flash rate (like .-.-.-. or .-.) and the timing for the reminder in seconds (blink every xx seconds).

Anyway that's a great app and a great job!
Works fine on my GS2 2.3.3

Thanks dev!

I have been waiting for an application like this since the day I first tried Android on my HD2.

Thanks for creating this app.

This is terrific and I am going to try this out on my Incredible, as the EVO and Incredible are basically the same.

Would need a time limit too so you could have blink [whatever pattern] every X seconds for Y minutes. Oh and if possible, create different blink patterns for different types of notifications
