The world is a colorful place, so why aren't our notifications? Begin to associate your friends and family with a LED color!

How it works

When a text message is sent to your phone the OS listens and records the phone number and uses that input to generate a custom LED color and pushed the notification.

Challenges I ran into

My biggest challenge was working with cyanogen. Its a huge amount of code to sort through and is difficult to understand how it fits together. There was also no organic way to implement this code it required a creative solution.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Became far more comfortable with Cyanogen and feel well prepared to use it in the future!

What I learned

How to use/install CyanogenMod, and how to contribute to any open source.

What's next for SMSLight
