    Are there any alternatives to Light Flow for my N5?
    Light Flow has started playing up, it's notifications stay and it keeps flashing even when I clear all. I have to restart the app for it to work properly.

    I am firmly in the LightFlow corner. I suggest you contact the developer - he has always been very responsive to all my questions and will work with me until the issue is solved.

    If you are looking for an alternative, the only one I have ever heard anything decent about is Frozen LED (but I have never used it)

    I noted that two years ago? No help for it.

    So I switched to LEDBlinker Notifications. Much easier to setup and no blinking after clearing nor phantom lights for nothing, which also happened to me with Lightflow.

    I've been using Light Manager on my N5. Occasionally, it gets confused and continues to blink, but the rest of the time it's been perfect. Worth a try, as I didn't get much luck with LED Blinker or Light Flow.
