    Default How to Use Your Camera LED as a Notification LED


    Tap to enlarge

    Some new flagship Android phones are still missing the Notification LED. The app simulates an LED on your screen but you still have No LED.

    What if you could use your Camera Flash LED as a Notification LED?

    Option 1:
    Flashlight Notifier is complicated to use but free. Plus it can work with almost any app but there is no developer website or instructions.

    Option 2:
    Flashlight Alerts ($3) is very easy to use for Calls, Texts, Email, Gmail, K-9 Mail, and Google Voice. Even if you have a Notification LED, you can't miss the Camera Flash LED. So you can keep from disturbing others at home (or at work) but never miss seeing the flash.
    Tap images for full screen
    Setup

    You have 15 minutes to uninstall an app if your don't like it so we will setup Flashlight Alerts and test it right away.
    1. Tap the then search for and install ($3) [not the Froyo one].
    2. Tap Flashlight Alerts to open it and then tap Test flashlight to make sure it works on your phone.
    3. Set Incoming Call ON and Text Messages ON.
    4. Set New Email ON and Text Messages ON and you will see a pop-up saying settings must be enabled.
    5. Tap Go to Settings.

    → Make sure Accessibility is ON. Turn Flashlight Alerts ON.

    Notes
    • Call your phone to make sure Flashlight Alerts works for calls. Get a text to test texts.
    • Lay your phone face down so that the camera LED points to the ceiling to see the flash even several cubicles away.
    • Jerry Hildenbrand did a quick review with video for Android Central.

    Milo - I'd be afraid that some of the camera LED's might blind the person standing next to you when it's on a belt clip!

    But nonetheless, very cool app's find!
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    I tested the flashlight on flashlight alerts (the paid app) but it would not work. Does it work ok for others on ICS?

    Edit: I am running a RAZR maxx. Thx
