Many phones, like the Nexus One, contain a full color led but rely on white for most notifications. Boring, right? Blink, if you aren’t familiar, lets you make use of your phone’s led full color capabilities to enable multi-color notifications.
Adding even more multi to your notifications, Blink now allows for custom color selections and color naming. The color wheel is a great touch, but the colors themselves are sometimes hit or miss. On my Nexus One, the primary colors of blue, red and yellow seemed to work the best, all of the purples look more like hot pink.
There are also some bugs to be worked out with Blink working properly on some devices; but if you’re looking to mix things up, it’s worth a try. Below you’ll find the full changelog as well as links to download the app if you want to try it on your phone.
