Let LED Blinker Notifications (formerly LEDBlinker) show your missed calls, SMS, Facebook and Whatsapp messages. If you have no hardware led, the screen is used.
All apps are supported in the full version, click on the plus button on the top and add the missing.

This app is very simple to use and not much configuration is needed!

Works with latest Android Lollipop Version
individual settings for each app, e. g. blink rate, vibration, sounds and repeats
light and dark color scheme
export/import settings (no lost settings when you install new ROMS/mods)
Silent mode for every day (enable it for the night to stop blinking
widget to deactivate LED Blinker/remove notifications quickly
Screen LED for phones without real LED

Examples for apps with notifications:
missed calls and sms
Battery status (LED notification for low battery, < 10%)
Google Mail
Google Talk/Google Hangouts
Calendar reminder notifications
Standard EMail App
SNOView - Social Network Overview notification
Facebook messages
WhatsApp messages
Skype messages
Bluetooth messages (LED goes on when bluetooth is active)
Alternative On-Screen-LED
Twitter, Threema (now with group support), Facebook Messenger and so on.

AndroidHeadLines: 'LED Blinker is an Android app that aims to make it much easier to help you figure out which notification is which'.

Unlike other apps in this category you don't need 'ROOT' access to use LED Blinker and this app is very battery friendly!
All rights are needed to run the app, lesser are not possible.
The new right to write to SD card it needed for error reports (check menu extras: Debug mode), please send it to [email protected] if you have found an error.

Please try out the lite version at first to see if your hardware LED works (on screen LED is always working!).

LEDBlinker Notifications has no internet permission, your data is safe!!!

Please check device specific hints at the end!

Fast support is very important for me! (Look at the ratings, thanks to all people!)
If you have problems please do a full re-install and/or reboot your phone.
Otherwise contact me at Facebook/Google+/Email to get help.

Warning: If your phone speaks after install (Samsung S4, S3, S3 Mini, S2, Note1, Note2, Note3, LG Nexus 4) you have to disable Samsung TTS (text-to-speech) under settings -> apps manager -> all (on the right) and Google TTS (text-to-speech).
Only needed when you use the accessiblity service!

Another solution to fix talkback issue:
You can change the launcher by using another one from the Google Play Store. For example, Solo Launcher - Swift & Smart, Nova Launcher, Go Launcher and Holo Launcher. These launchers will not exhibit this bug.

For Samsung S4 users: If your phone speaks when opening your browser you have to use another browser like Chrome or Firefox.

Hint HTC users: Your phone is NOT supported, you have to use the on screen led!

Sony Phones: Please disable stamina mode in your device settings.

Let your led glow with different colors!

✔ Samsung 5.1.1 support added (see appsettings at the top!)

Does the LED of your Samsung device just blink blue since you updated to Android 5.1.1? Start the accessibility service (if available) AND enable the notification access (under sound and notifications or security). Furthermore you SHOULD disable the light/LED in the activated apps, do NOT disable the notification itself (e.g. in Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Google Inbox). With these settings LED Blinker should work as usual.
