Ever since I got my first Android phone I had been wondering if there is a way (outside of hacking the phone) for me to customize the color of the blinking LED notification light depending on the type of notification.
Well, as they say, there’s an app for that. Blink, released last week, allows you to customize the LED — from a choice of twelve colors — for SMS/MMS, Incoming Call/Missed Call, and Low Battery/Memory. What’s more, you can also customize the frequency of the flashing light.
The only thing missing is that you can’t customize the LED settings for email. However, the team behind this awesome app assures us that the option will be available in a future update.
Blink is a FREE app that is publicly available on the Android Market. If you are reading this post from your Android device, you can use this direct download link: http://downloadandroid.info/download/Blink.apk
Or you can be cool and use this QR code:
Now excuse me while I change my text notification light to a pretty purple.
P.S. — Thanks to my geeky husband for giving me the heads-up on this app!

Hmmm, I might be doing something wrong because it’s not working on my Evo. Any suggestions? It’s a really great concept =)
@Teyah — Hmm I’m not sure what I can tell you without actually looking at your phone. I would suggest that you check out their website at http://downloadandroid.info/products/utility/blink/ or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sorry about that!
Darn i says "Does not work on HTC Hero" 🙁
