The developer, Fabian, has been on a crusade to add small little features to the BlackBerry OS. His latest creation is called BlinkWhileCall and does one simple thing. It makes your BlackBerry LED blink Purple when you are getting a call and it is on silent. This way you can visually see the difference between a call and a email. All for $2.00.
I have never run into this problem myself but I thought it was worth mentioning. I personally just set phone calls to vibrate 3 times and emails only vibrate once. I think this would be a great free app…
From the description:
Everyone knows the problem: You don’t want the phone to ring but still want to know when someone is calling. The internal red-LED-notification is to dark and you don’t know if it’s a mail, SMS or call…
Here is a solution !
The small application BlinkWhileCall blinks fast with the bright purple LED when you receive a call. If you set the device to silent, you can still get notified!
- Not expensive
- Easy to use
- Get notified even when on silent
