    I have Lite Flow premium but it doesn't seem to work well. Is there a reliable LED configurer? I like to program it to flash faster and to use different colors for each app.

    No, unfortunately not yet. Light Manager works, however, a side effect of 6.0 Android is that the notifications (Gmail, etc) in the notification bar at the top of the screen will not auto clear after reading an email, and must be manually cleared. The developer says that he is working on a fix. I've disabled Light Manager for the time being.

    It's nice to hear he thinks there may be a work around. I was under the impression it was hopeless.

    We'll see. I find it pretty amazing that manufacturers like Samsung build these phones with multi-colored LEDS, but don't bake in the ability to change color based on type of notification. It's such a useful feature, especially in light of the "Always On" screen only being programmed to display native Samsung apps, which no one that I've ever talked to uses.

    Update: At the suggestion of a developer on another forum, I began using Google Inbox in lieu of the Gmail app. Inbox has a switch to turn off led notifications, which the Gmail app does not. Using Inbox, Light Manager works perfectly on the S7., with regard to auto dismissing status bar notifications after reading mail.
