Is their anywhere on the X that you can setup your LED lights for your notifications?
You can change notification LED colors using Handcent as your sms/mms. Not sure if there's other apps that can give access to LED function...
You can use Missed Call to change colors for missed calls and/or SMS based on contact. I believe it also supports Calendar notifications but unfortunately most other things can't be changed (Gmail, Google Voice, and GTalk are the ones I want).
I'm happy that Handcent has this feature because Text Messages are the ones I was most worried about.
Also, there's a free app called "Blink" that works pretty well.
Unfortunately, as is the case for apps like this, it only works for Calls, SMS/MMS, or system notifications. No dice on google products (email, voice, talk, etc.) One of these days...
Edit: here's the QR code for blink:
Gmail Notifier works great for Gmail.
You can use Missed Call for calendar events, but it gives you a warning that it still has faults and is not 100% reliable. I use Missed Call for text and calls, but haven't tried out the calendar service yet.
If you use K9 for you email you can set the LED to specific colors for each of the different accounts.
I could never get the LEDs to work using Handcent. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? But I've tried all of the colors and all of the different blinking options.
are there more color choices than red/blue/green
When was the last time you tried it? It used to not work when the X first came out but there was an update and it works now.
I've tried missed call, blink, and handescent. None work for me, although I'm sure I'm just being an idiot and can't get it setup right. Also, I thought touchdown did it as well, but it won't either.
Shouldn't be this difficult.
i tried missed call and nothing happened for incoming or missed calls so tried Blink and got the pretty colors
Handcent wont change led color for me either...
604 on x and latest hancent version.
Anyone using this on their X? I tried it real quick, but it didn't seem quite right. I changed the blink frequency to quick - but it seemed solid on (no blink). I noticed a couple of other strange behaviors and uninstalled it. Maybe I didn't give it a chance?
i use it mainly to set the text message, call, and email colors to different colors. the frequency setting doesn't work for me, but the colors do. for some reason my memory gets really low all the time and it notifies me. have to look into it.
