    In all honesty I'm tempted to uninstall Lightflow and even wipe the device and start again. It's a bit confusing with different places to set lights and sounds at the moment what with the main 'Sounds' setting, then the apps themselves and then within Lightflow also. At the moment I have a few apps not doing what they should and I can't figure what the culprit is. E.g.:

    1) I have 3 email accounts. Each set (via the individual email settings pages) to get a notification, different sound but no light. In Lighflow none of the Email account are enabled for within the app. At the moment I get nothing for two accounts and on one, I get the dealt notification sound DESPITE the sound being set to a different sound in both the LF app and in the email settings? So, not sure what's causing the problem. Is it Lightflow because it's monitoring notifications but for these 3 emails notifications within LF are turned off? Or is it the device and it's own Mail settings? Even with setting up the app for email it's a bit confusing IMO, there's a general email tab then one for each of the accounts and it's not clear if just one or all should be enabled or whatever.

    2) I have notifications in LF enabled for FB Messenger. There are two icons for FB messenger. One (I assume) for the stand alone messaging app and one for FB (the messaging tab). There are also settings under Facebook. I'm not sure of the exact cocktail to get this to work right but, despite having Blocking Mode on I had a FB notification come through at 3am which really made me happy!!

    I like the concept of the app but am tempted to bin it merely to see if I can get the device working better without it and make the whole process of settings notifications less confusing. For seasoned users who know the ins and outs I'm sure it's fine. Trouble is, when it doesn't function as you'd expect its hard to fathom where to start to trouble shoot!

    I have tinkered around with several apps and had different levels of luck. I have always used Motorola phones in the past, but the last two Motorola's I had were just not good smartphones. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and although I am still testing, so far I am having very good luck with this app. I haven't tried colors like Orange or Yellow yet(had issues with this previously with other apps), but the biggest change I made that seems to really make a difference was to turn off all of the LED settings under my device. I also have had no talkback issues and am running with airview/airgesture/multiwindow all active. I am curious about directmode and a few other settings and will post back once I have tested further. So far though, this seems to be a great app. My phone is rooted and running 4.2.2 Android

    I used to have the Galaxy Nexus from YEARS ago! Just got the S4 back in November 2013. I LOVED the Light Flow Lite app. I got it to work at one time, but now I can't figure out how to get it to work again. It was frustrating because the light would stay on, even after I cleared the notifications, so I uninstalled it. Tried it again, can't figure it out. I went to the settings and turned light flow on and off again, went to light flow notifications and followed all of those instructions and it said to make the missed call red, which I did...but mine didn't have a "test" option. I've tried rebooting and nothing. It's getting super frustrating!
    Any help would be appreciated!
