  1. sync notifications across devices like android.

    Gmail, google talk, etc are all accessible on browsers, other tablets, etc. When you view an email on your pc browser android will clear the notification on your device, but light flow will keep the notification until you clear it on each device. Please sync notifications like android.

    • Telegram contact specific notifications

      Hey guys,
      at first I need to say that your app is really great!

      I'd love to see a similar feature for Telegram like the one you already developed for WhatsApp. I'm speaking about contact specific notifications. That would be extremely cool.
      Thanks :)

      • Rainbow sequence of lights

        Is a good idea to add an option to change the light from one color to another using a step by step increase /decrease of RGB values. For example:
        - initial color: 82, 150, 180
        - color 1: 83, 149, 181
        - color 2: 84, 148, 183
        - color 3: 85, 147, 184
        - final color: 86, 146, 185

        The user will be able to select the colors that will change dinamically, the numbers of units that will change (increase/decrease) at every step, the initial and final value for every color (red, green, blue).

          It’s a feature I’d love to add and technically it’s possible, but there’s a big side effect – battery drain.

          With the current on/off timings the processed is controlled via android and passed through to the hardware drivers and is fairly battery efficient. To keep changing the pattern more frequently (either more color changes, or keeping changing the pattern) would mean that we’d have to keep issuing on/off timings or color change timings potentially several times a second. Every change like this means code needs to run. Running code means the phone has to be in a “partial wake” state which brings the CPU out of “deep sleep” and hits the battery quite hard. On testing this in the past (I had it working in an older development build) it would make the app use 25%+ of the battery.

          The default led driver options for android allow for custom on/off…

        • Separate Google Voice notifications for text messages and voicemails

          Right now, there is a single Google Voice notification style that applies to both text message and voicemail notifications from GV. I'd like to be able to treat those separately. Thanks!

            • Notification only with led?

              Honestly was thinking it would be nice to have an "led only" option for notification this way you'll know which app sends notification without needing to stuff n clearing your notification bar. Sadly blocking the notification in the app settings causes the app to disable the notification led. Like hidden notification option. Have been looking around for such app but nothing in play market. Would be a nice addition if it can be made

                The persistent notification has been added because Google asked me to when the app runs in the foreground because they have stopped apps running in the foreground without an visible notification in android 4.3 upwards. Luckily it can be switched off though.
                If you go into light flow, settings and then switch off the “run in foreground” option that will remove it.

                There is a slightly higher chance that the app may get killed off by android when running low on memory with this change in settings. If this happens, the app may miss some notifications before restarting.

              • Support more granular options for Disa.im

                Currently working with Lightflow, but only supporting 1 color/vibration setting. This app is going to be HUGE and support multiple protocols (hangouts, sms, whatsapp, facebook, etc) and needs proper support for more granular options.

                • More granular control to Anti-spam notification and audio focus

                  A drop down menu is cool but why not input the duration in seconds you want to stop multiple notification from coming? It's simple and cleans the menu.
                  Other part audio focus. While watching YouTube and receiving notifications the sound dips down way to much and it would be nice to have a slider that limits it to a minimum where the sound won't go lower. (It also got stuck in low sound mode until I received another notification, but that is not the topic)

                  • okay so you probably get this alot but but many of us would like to see patterns of multiple colors...

                    for example I had a cycle between green and white for whatsapp and green and blue for bbm...this would allow for more distinguishable color patterns that could use the same colors whilst staying origional look up the more popular bbm apps for ideas

                      • Fade colors.

                        I know this is likely frequently requested. To fade between colors rather than flash. The Note II does something like this during boot and shutdown. How this is accomplished should be in the source code. It might make for interesting or inspiring research.

                                  • Battery charged option to limit it to when battery charger is connected.

                                    Make it so the battery charged notification can be setup to only come on when the phone is connected to a charger. I really have no interest in knowing that the phone is charged after I've taken it off the charger, but it is nice having the light to show me the charge finished.

                                    This would be consistent with what a lot of OEMs make their lights do. However, the Galaxy Nexus doesn't use the built in light for charging at all.

                                      Hi
                                      This is exactly what the app should already be doing and what happens on my galaxy nexus. Charging and charged only show when you’ve got a cable plugged in.

                                      Some people are having issues with the charging notification in the current release with the galaxy nexus. I’ve got a fix ready that’s just waiting on some other testing before being released.

                                    • Add support for Hazard Alert

                                      Hazard Alert is a weather alert program... Very useful
                                      .
