I was a loyal BlackBerry user/fan for years. That is until I had to give in and get a device worthy of 21st Century. I tried to hang on as long as I could but BB just fell too far behind in the smartphone race and I finally jumped ship. The Z10 and Q10 might have been game changers for BB in 2010 or 2011 but not 2013.

And believe it or not I am actually becoming an all-touch keyboard fan...who would have ever thought a former die-hard BB fan would ever admit that? OK enough of my BB rant.

One of the things I liked the most about BB's was the LED notifications. Yes, the One has them but they turn off after like 5-mins which was a mistake on HTC's part IMO. Anyway without rooting (I'm just not ready to take that leap yet but I'm getting close :D) is there an app out there that will allow the LED notification on the One to go off indefinitely? When I have a missed call, email or SMS I want the LED to blink until I shut it off. Is there anything out there that will do this?

You could try LightFlow. I'm not sure if it works the way you want for the One (I own an S4). A cooler app called NoLED actually displays the icon of the notified app on-screen, but there's no free lunch: you get cooler notifications, but you're using the screen to do it, so there's a slightly higher battery consumption (diminished if your screen is AMOLED, but since yours is not, I'm not sure how much of an impact it would be on the One).

I don't think it works to great for the HTC One (light flow) if I'm remembering correctly... But I could be wrong.

I haven't used it in a while, but I read somewhere that they made quite a few modifications recently that's supposed to help with device compatibility. Also, once 4.3 hits the phone (if ever) it should get rid of the annoying Samsung/TouchWiz/Accessibility/TalkBack thing.
