Flashlight Notifier Gives You Extremely Bright Notifications
Does your mobile device lack a notification light? Perhaps you actually have a dedicated light, but it simply isn’t bright enough to get your attention. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone created an app that allowed you to use something really, really bright—like your camera’s flash—to alert you of your most important notifications?
XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer jug6ernaut has done exactly this! With Flashlight Notifier, you can now use the camera flash to alert you when your attention is needed. Sweetening the pot, the app also allows you to select which apps use the camera flash and which use the standard notification light. Future versions of Flashlight Notifier will even offer the ability to specify at which times the flashlight notifications are active!
Flashlight Notifier is a simple application that allows you to use your camera LED as a notification LED! Can be used with ANY application!

Continue on to the application thread to get your fill of unmistakably bright notifications!
