FlashBlink Delivers Camera Flash Call Notification

There are numerous ways that our devices can notify us of an incoming call. Aside from the obvious methods such as annoying ringtones and vibration, certain people out there like to be notified of this in a somewhat different manner. After receiving numerous requests, XDA senior member faiyyaz has developed FlashBlink, a simple yet functional little application which will, as you may have already guessed, cause your camera flash LED to blink when you have an incoming call.

The application is also capable of acting as a torch by toggling the flash on and off at will. This function is activated by opening the app which will also display an analogue desk clock. I might be way off the mark here but I suspect that this is intended for people like myself who have an annoying tendency to wake up, check the time and inevitably end up walking into or standing on something in the dark. If this app can put an end to that, I’ll be a happy man.

 The developer states that FlashBlink is currently not compatible with Android 4.0. I found this to be only partly true in that the incoming call notification does not currently work, but the app itself will install and run with the other functions working perfectly.

If you think this may be of use to you, please visit the original application thread.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
