Blinker LED for Windows Mobile Updated

XDA member zevele presents Blinker, an application that forces the device’s LEDs to blink every few seconds to notify the user about the state of the device (SMS, EMail, missed calls, wifi bluetooth etc.) Blink will let you know when your battery is running out of juice, notify you if there is no signal, when phone is charging, and any other notification you can think of. Moreover, you can configure the blink type and more via the registry.
Very useful on older devices that don´t have this type of options by default.
Please leave your feedback to the developer.

Hi, Following the requests here, I’ve wrote this application. Basically the application blinks the device LED every few seconds. The idea is to have some notification that the device is still alive.

Main features:
Blink the LED every few seconds. If the battery level is below the threshold, orange led is blinking otherwise the green on is used.
If the radio is turned off or there is no signal, another orange blink occurs (in addition to the regular one).
When the phone is charging the orange LED lights constantly, every few seconds a sequence of green blinks according to the batter level occurs (20-40% – 1 blink, 40-60% – 2 blinks, 60-80% – 3 blinks and 80-100% – 4 blinks). If the battery is fully charged – the green led lights constantly.
Blink interval and length can be set via the registry. Different blink interval for idle mode and when notification exists (new message/missed call).
Running the link once starts the application, on blink sequence occurs. Running the link again runs the configuration application from which the service can be closed.
Blink sequence for the normal , low battery, no-signal, new message (Voice/SMS/EMail), Missed calls, wireless status (bluetooth and wifi), on and off blink sequences can be set via the registry.

Continue to the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
