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!

I have only been able to test this on a small handful of handsets so if it doesn’t work for you don’t fret!, give me a small reply in this thread and i will do what i can to get your device supported!

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

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
