    I was just in the EVO forum in a thread about using the EVO's kickstand, and I got an idea for an app. I'm wondering if one exists or if anyone knows how to do what I'm thinking.

    When I'm sitting in my office at work, I've got my phone on the charger. The problem with this is that I get no LED notifications when my phone is on the charger (it's solid orange or solid green). I keep my phone on silent at work, so I never know if anything is going on on my phone without waking it up and looking at it. I'm used to a Blackberry which I had set up to use the LED to notify me in different colors and flashing speeds of anything that might be happening on my phone. I miss having that functionality.

    What I'm thinking would be handy would be a desk clock type of application--something where I stick my EVO on the charger, flip out the kickstand, and have it display any active notifications (and update as they arrive). That way a quick glance would tell me if I have new email, a new SMS, etc, just as a quick glance at my Blackberry used to do. Since it's on the charger, there's no problem with it staying awake. I would just want the application to avoid any screen burn. I figure a refresh of the active notifications along with a move on the screen at a preset interval would provide this.

    Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for me? In a Blackberry-to-EVO thread yesterday, the lack of Blackberry-style LED notifications came up multiple times as one of the few areas of disappointment with this phone, so I imagine this would be a popular application if someone wants to jump on board to develop it. I know I would happily throw a fews bucks out there to have this feature.
