WiMAX SMS Notifier for EVO 4G Released
There have been many requests on the XDA forums for the bottom key LEDs on the HTC EVO 4G to flash for alerts such as SMS notification.
XDA forum member bludragon742 took on the project at the beginning of August and after listening to XDA members thoughts and ideas on how best to make the app work, has now released the first version of his WiMAX Notifier app!
