LEDBlinker Receives Major Update

A couple of months ago, we covered an app called LEDBlinker by XDA Senior Member MOST2K2. This app gave users flexibility in customizing a device’s LED light and its behavior with certain apps under certain situations. There’s recently been a major update to the app.

MOST2K2 has gotten rid of the previous restriction that limited the number of supported apps, and has allowed support for all apps. Support for all apps includes some of the largest messaging and social networking apps including Whatsapp, Instagram, Viber, Twitter, and Kik. The other main addition is the home screen widget that conveniently clears all LEDBlinker notifications that you may have accumulated throughout the day.

As before, LEDBlinker allows users to customize the LED color for different apps and situations with either the preset colors, HSV color palette, RGB values, or with Hex values. These notifications are sorted into 8 different categories for ease of navigation. Settings also include the option to set the LED blink rate, toggle vibration, and have the LED fade in and out, among many others.

With pretty much the same functions and features as its full version, LEDBlinker is free from the Play store and its forum post, and available to all users with devices running Android versions 2.1 or newer. Feedback and suggestions are welcome, so if you would like to give LEDBlinker a go, check out the original thread.
