    Default best LED notification app?

    I've been using light manager to alter the colors of my led notifications but I have found this app to be very glitchy. Often times the wrong color flashes and lately the notification doesn't turn off even after I acknowledge the alert. I have to turn off the phone and restart to get the light to stop flashing. Just wondering if anyone else has any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I've been using Light Flow for a while, and so far it's been pretty reliable. Haven't had any issues with it.

    If you are rooted (or don't mind rooting) and have Xposed installed, try the Xposed LED Control Module. It gives you an option to customize every app and so far it has worked flawlessly with no hiccups. Also because it's system deep, it doesn't have constantly running processes so it's better on battery life. I used Light Flow previously and it worked great on my Note 2 but I've found LED Control to be better. Hope that helps.

    I tried Lightflow but didnt like how I got two notifications when a txt came through. One from Lightflow and one from hangouts. Do you know if there is a way to disable the notifications in light flow and just have the standard hangouts one?

    Go to Lightflow, and go to the hangouts setting and tick the sound off

    I use lightflow, I've been using it since I got my Nexus 5. It takes some time to set up and get it catered to your exact notification needs, but I love the way it works now.

    My only issue with third party solutions is I can't turn off Gmail LED notifications without turning the notifications completely off for Gmail. I get a LOT of email and it sucks I'm always looking at my phone for no reason.

    I've been using Light Flow too, but I have noticed when I get notifications, the LED will sometimes flicker for a second before blinking the appropriate color. Hopefully that's not problematic.

    I switched over to the free version of light flow and am much happier. This app seems to work pretty much flawlessly compared to light manager. Thanks for the suggestions and replies.

    Light Flow for me - got the paid version using Google Rewards, I love it, a few hiccups here and there but nothing to really complain about.
