Has anyone got lightflow working on their device? I can't seem to get certain apps like whatsapp to display a notification.

Can anyone recommend any alternatives to lightflow?

Its working fine here. Have you ticked the checkbox in Settings-Display-Led and then very last downloaded apps? Also see in whatsapp the colour you want it to display.

Got it working now thanks. Just incase anyone else runs into issues:

I had to enable the notifications access under android security options, disable lightflow under android accessability options.
Enable Notification LED under android display options. I unchecked all led's except downloaded apps.

I disabled all options under lightflow device settings.

I've checked my battery stats and it doesn't even appear so I'm assuming it takes near to no battery at all?

Still No Go

Tried the instructions above but lightflow still isn't working. Anybody else have tips? BTW, using the free version if that makes a difference, which I doubt. LG G3 AT&T

Light flow draining battery life?

Has anyone else experienced battery drain when running light flow? My battery life was fantastic and I've noticed a decline recently. I've uninstalled most recent downloaded apps except for Light Flow . I also noticed in the Battery setting that my device is staying awake quite a bit. Without rooting (I can't since it's a work phone), I don't know of an app that will tell me exactly what's waking the device, however my hunch is light flow.

Light Flow Issues

Could not get Handcent or any calendar app to light the LED. Tried light flow and light manager. Eventually went to a different SMS app and that fixed one. Found that freezing the native calendar app was causing the lack of notifications for the calendar. Now it is all working.

No noticeable battery drain.

No notification icons was showing my Verizon LG G3 despite having all LED settings turned on. Downloaded Light Flow and even though it worked, too much customizations for me. I ended up downloading Light Manager. This also worked but it was straight to the point even with customizations.

I was having the same issue up until a few minutes ago. I had installed Light Manager and done all the proper settings and given it the permissions, made sure the LED was enabled and that apps box was checked. but the problem was that sometimes (usually only the first time) when I got a text it would blink at the set rate and others it would blink at the normal stock rate (once every 12 seconds).

The key to fixing this for me was unchecking all the boxes in the stock LED options except for the APP one. This allowed Light Manager to be the sole controller of the LED.

Hope this helps people!

I'm thinking about getting the LG G3. I'm happy to hear that it has an LED notification. I take it that it is multi-color? I would actually probably not get the phone if it didn't have the LED notification. Does anyone have any regrets about the phone?

    You can try using Light Manager, from my experience it much more battery friendly.
