Flashing Alerts for Android Updated

Believe it or not, our stock phones lack a lot of very handy features that, for the most part, would make sense if they were available from the start. With this in mind, a while back, XDA member rdude created an app for the EVO 4G that enabled the LED to notify you of certain events such as calls or SMS. After a small hiatus and tons of requests, it seems that the dev decided to bring the app back with a slew of updates and fixes. Among some of the most notable ones, the app will now work with other events such as incoming gmail emails, MMS, and several more apps that will now trigger this. On top of that, the dev has made this app compatible with several other devices. So, if you used to have it on your EVO, make sure that you update it to the latest and greatest. You will not regret it.

The dev is still looking for feedback, so please take this for a spin and leave your thoughts for the dev.

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!

You can find more information in the application thread.
