Camera LED Alert on Incoming Call or SMS

Camera LED Alert on Incoming Call or SMS

Wouldn’t it be great if the camera LED on your Android device flashed when you got an incoming call or a new SMS so that you can see when your phone is ringing even on silent? That was the question posed by XDA forum member apristel in this request thread.

Luckily, apristel didn’t have to wait very long, before XDA member rdude came up with the goods!

Flashlight Alerts flashes your LED when you receive a phone call or when you get a new text message.  Currently, the app does not notify on new emails since rdude states that there is no standard system notification for email among the many email apps.  rdude has however mentioned that he’ll try to add more notification types over the weekend.
