WiMax Notifier for EVO Gets Updated
There was an app sometime last year that came out for the EVO, which allowed you to use WiMax’s LED light to display notifications for SMS messages. The app was left alone for a while until recently. XDA members JGW310 and Noxious Ninja decided to pick up the project where it left off. However, they are doing a whole re-writing of the app to make this great concept do even more than just alerting you of inbound text messages. The new version has been greatly improved in terms of stability, it can also handle MMS and best of all, is compatible with CM7 for those of you who have a thing for AOSP roms. Future updates to this app promise to bring much more notification goodness as it will support e-mail, missed calls, and much more.
If you have tried this app, please leave some feedback for the devs.
Here is WiMax notifier, but updated to work more smoothly on your HTC EVO 4G!!!!
NOXIOUS NINJA AND I ARE GOING TO COMBINE/COLLABORATE TO RE WRITE THE APP, BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE!!!!!! STAY TUNED!!!!!!!
You can find more information in the application thread.

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
