FlashNotify 1.6.1

Another new update – I think I’ve finally found the reason that some SMS messages don’t seem to start the flashing, and it should now be fixed. I’ll keep an eye on it all the same, but this should make things more reliable.

The hairy technical details for anyone who cares – It seems that the SMS_RECEIVED broadcast is sent before the message is added to the SMS content provider database. Thus, my code was getting the SMS_RECEIVED notification, only to discover that there weren’t any unread SMS messages (yet), and it shut down again. Big old delay before the first flash attempt should fix that 🙂

FlashNotify 1.6.0

Update now available – The main bugfix is that it no longer plays any notification tone you have set up if you’re actually on the phone. Should have fixed that one a while ago, really. Apologies…

Also, the donate versions now have the option to vibrate the phone too… Yours for an entire pound.
