    [App] NoLED gives your Captivate a Notification LED


    Bummed that the Samsung Captivate doesn't include a notification LED? Well you're in luck, as Madmack (over at XDA) devised a low-power highly efficient solution: NoLED. NoLED is an app that will display notifications on your AMOLED screen, and will act similarly to a smartphone's notification LED. You may be wondering how it works. Straight from madmack's thread:

    1. When your phone receives a notification, it switches the screen on and displays a red dot somewhere in the top left corner. The location of this dot is random every time you receive a new notification. This will guarantee using different LEDs so that the same ones won't be burned out ! The reason why I chose red is because it uses the least amount of energy to display.

    2. The app runs as a service, after installing, you'll need to lock the screen once and unlock it for it to activate. After this, the application should run automatically after a reboot.

    3. To get rid of the red dot, the only key you can use is the home key. Using the capacitive touch buttons will do nothing, and so as clicking anywhere on the screen. Once your screen turns on, the notifications disappear and will not come up until a new notification sound is received.
    Simply put, when you receive a notification (missed call, text, email, etc), your display will turn on, fully black with a blinking red square on the top-left of the screen. Here is a simulated shot of what your screen will look like when you receive a notification:



    Do note, the blacks on AMOLEDs theoretically utilize little-to-no power, so there should be no battery drain when using NoLED. But remember, the app is still in beta, and only has undergone a few changes since its initial release. This should work on both the Captivate and Vibrant, as well as all the other Galaxy S models.

    There is already a thread on this here. Do we need to keep starting multiple posts for things?
