Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
HD2 Keypad LED Notification
XDA member NetRipper has created a notification system for the HD2. After some requests for an application that uses the keypad LEDs as notification manager, NetRipper managed to develop it for his HD2. The LEDs will start blinking when you recieve a text message or a mail, or when you missed a call.

In the attached .zip are two executables:
- checks unread sms and missed calls
- checks unread sms, missed calls and unread email
Please test the attached executable that you like. Put it on your device and run it. You’ll get a notification when it is started. It remains active until started again (=exit) or reboot.
When released I’ll probably integrate this with KeypadLedControl. As there are now some keypad on/off issues when KeypadLedControl is used at the same time.
Let me know if it works for you.
You can download the application in the request thread.
