Blinker – LED Notification for Incoming SMS and Call Notification

Making more use of the charging LED on your Android device is a much requested feature from XDA members, and there have been a few apps developed for this purpose for various devices.

XDA forum member djbrutale has also developed an Android app to make use of the LED,  this time on the Google Nexus One, although it’s possible that the app may also work for other Android devices.

Blinker, uses the charging LED to notify the user of received SMS’s and missed or rejected calls.

Additional functionality includes the option to set the colour of your choice from blue, green, red or amber and also the blinking speed of the LED.

Once the SMS has been read, or the the Call-missed notification has been deleted, the LED will turn off.

djbrutale has stated that for some devices, root may be required.

For more information and to download the apk, check out the application thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship.
