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/showpost.php?p=6855234&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?

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 :)

Thanks so much, I really like this program.
Now it works again also with Gingerbread ROMs.

Best regards

Agree with this 100%! Also, is there anyway to make this work with Google Talk?

Has anyone encountered a bug that stops your HD2 from charging when this application has been triggered?

I have actually had to disable the app due to this issue. My battery was warm at the time so I will test again tonight.

The orange LED would go out, although android recognised USB was plugged in it refused to charge until I unplugged the cable and put it back in.

I know it has been mentioned in the various threads already, but it could REALLY use an interval setting. Like one flash every minute or something. Personally, if I am there to see the flash in the first place, I knew the phone rang anyway. It's when I wasn't there for the ring, is when it would be very handy to have it flash every few minutes. My phone sits face down in a holster so, I really can use an app like that.

    I"m not sure if this is possible but i'd love for this to be able to be used as a notification to an alarm. I'd love for the flashflight to go off along with the alarm app. If you're able to add this feature I'll support you by buying the market version. :)
