The notification light on the Nexus 4 is a cool little feature, but can anyone tell me what the different colours mean? I notice that sometimes the light is flashing green, or white or blue?
I guess it relates to the type of notification but I can’t for the life of me work out the rule? What happens if you have a missed call and an email waiting for example? Is there and order of precedence for the notification colouring?
I couldn’t find anything on Google regarding this but that might be due to my refusal to search for “color” :-P Can any UK peeps help ;-)
Have not tried it but you can control it with Light Flow app.
let us all know if you go for it.
That app looks good, tbh I can’t tell what the default colours mean and I can’t find any reference to them. All my Google searches seem to point to that Light Flow app.
Here’s the link:
I think the Nexus 4 only uses one colour by default. Mine does anyway.
Anyone else installed it on Nexus 4?. I have not.
Some review comments:
Can’t live without it.
I rely so heavily on this app during my daily routine. Hasn’t let me down yet. Works perfect on the Nexus 4.
This app turns the notification LED on my Nexus 4 from a non used feature to a central point of my Android experience. The developer is very helpful and quick to respond to bug reports or feature requests.
Working perfectly on my Nexus4
Tried Light Flow lite and liked it. Hence Purchased this. And I should say its aweeeesome :) There are lots of apps which doesn’t play sound persistently/light up LED when notification arrives – to name a few – Whatsapp, Any.do etc. With this app everything can be configured and it made my life damn easy. Thanks Light Flow. You are awesome :)
I have not tried that app yet. Am tempted to investigate..
From my observations, blue seems to be a Facebook alert. Yellow seems to be a Tweetdeck alert. White seems to be more general Android notifications.
So does that mean it’s up to the app authors to specify a colour, hence why FB goes blue, etc. Actually, a quick look on Android.com and I think that is the case. It’s up to the developer to specifiy the colour used, which I guess is what makes an app like LightFlow possible.
I got a green light notification today for the first time. It might be because I installed evernote a few days ago and they would naturally identify them as green.
Thanks for that, it definitely seems like it’s something that app developers can harness and control. Very cool.
