Keeping Notification Light On

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I use Edgelighting+ to provide a notification light when I get an email, text message, etc. It flashes for about 5 seconds or so. How do I keep that light flashing until I clear my notifications, so that whenever I look down at my phone I can see if there is a message requiring my attention?

Sure, see the screenshots I've attached. As always, if you need more clarification, I'm here.Screenshot_20190712-164144_Holey Light.pngPress the Colors option

 

Screenshot_20190712-164301_Holey Light.pngHere is a preview of different options. Multiple entries are normal as different parts of the app have what's called a "broadcast" aka different notification. Most apps will automatically have a selected color.

@SamsungAdam @user0A7BenSrIE From what I know it won't stay on until the notification is cleared in edgelighting+ you can only set it to run for a short-medium-long once it has reached it's set time it will stop showing

Hey @user0A7BenSrIE and @SamsungAdam. I have EsgeLighting+ installed as it does provide some extra Edge Lighting effects and does light the screen up for notifications but as @GaryB82 said, it only allows notifications for a short period of time.

 

My best suggestion for notifications is to download an app from the Google Play store called "Holey Light" by Chainfire. (Direct link to Holey Light)

 

Holey Light provides some cool notification lighting effects that I enjoy and find useful. It can be set up to your liking and I don't see any negative side affects from using it. I've had it since the day the phone was released.

 

If you need help setting it up, feel free to reach out to me.

 

Have a good weekend guys!

Is it possible with Holey Light to set a different color for different types of messages, for example, blue for an email and red for a text message?

Yes it is. 😃 Please note that it isn't an actual light. It is an awesome app that uses the screen to emulate a notification light. I love this app!

I've downloaded it, and I'm using it, but I cannot see where I have the option to assign different colors to different application notifications. Can you show me somehow?
