    [App] NoLED - Use the AMOLED screen for incoming notifications - xda-developers

    Just tried it for calls, SMS and emails. It works fine for SMS and emails, but it doesn't show anything for missed calls (althought it should), at least on my GS.
    Let's hope this is work in progress (it is a beta app). As suggested by some members of the xdaforum, it would be nice to have icons instead of dots in the future.
    But we always want more, don't we? :D

    This is indeed a very nice app.

    About icons, i suggested this in the early stage of the development. I even made a sample white envelope icon. >.< But because the different LED's in AMOLED have seperate lifespans, and can get dimmer if they stay on for a very long time, they went for randomly placed dots instead of icons.

    Thanks for the explanation!
    Well, we can't have it all. I am already very happy with the dot system, it is a huge help!

    Problem with the application is that it keeps the phone out of standby mode even if its just powering a few pixels.

    I read in the xda thread that someone estimated the battery use to 6% (I guess it is +6% compare to the normal standby mode?). Not sure how this person came up with this figure.

    Very nice little app - potentially very useful.

    Although like the OP, I'm not getting the missed call LED.

    For some reasons, the missed call "dot" is now displayed immediately. I haven't changed anything in between (I might have rebooted the phone).
