    App Name: Color Led Message

    Now Completely Headless for OS10.2.1 and higher

    This App has been specifically architected for a BlackBerry® 10 experience. The Built for BlackBerry designation is your assurance that this App meets BlackBerry’s high standards for quality and performance.




    Summary:

    Color Led Message is the ultimate and best Led color application for BlackBerry® 10. Customize Led color of incoming calls, BBM, WhatsApp, sms text messages, email messages, email accounts, social accounts such as FaceBook, Twitter and others, no network signal, custom message and text ringtone (use built-in or our own tones) and variable vibrate duration.

    Use Color Led Message to customize Led blinking colors for incoming SMS, Email messages and Accounts. Each of your contacts can have a different Led color or you can assign a different Led color for each of your Accounts, vibrate duration from 1 to 10 seconds, use built-in message tones or select your own message tone. You can choose from many system Led colors: Blue, Cyan, Green, Magenta, Red, Yellow or White and Two color combos.

    Incoming and Missed Phone Calls
    -------------------------
    You can also assign a different Led color for all incoming and missed calls. No more boring blinking red color. You can select any of the 7 system colors or the Rainbow color to light up your phone like a Xmas tree.

    Blinking Led
    --------------
    Blink duration can be controlled for each contact. You can set the blinking number from 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 5000, 10000 or forever until you can read or delete the message or manually turn off the led blinking in the application. One led blink is about 1 second.

    The blink led will automatically turn off when you read or delete the message. Each message has a led assigned to it. So if you read one message the led will continue to blink because you have other unread messages. Of course you can turn off the led for that account whenever you read or delete a message from that account. You do not have the manually turn off the led. Color Led Message automatically does it for you.

    Daily Timer Profile to turn off Tone and Vibrate
    --------------
    Color Led Message is the only Led application that have support for Timer Profile. If you do not want to be disturbed with the ringtone or vibrate you can turn on Daily Profile and set the Start and End times to turn off the ringtone and vibrate in Color Led Message. This is useful for meetings when you just need to see the blinking Led light and do not need to hear the tone. For bed time Daily Profile is MUST if you want to have a good night sleep and don't want to be distracted with all the incoming messages.

    Automatic Sync Messages
    ------------------------------
    Another unique feature in Color Led Message is to set a different time interval to sync all your messages. The default system message sync for email account is 15mins to 24 hours. Color Led Message sync gives you finer choices from 1min to 15 mins interval. Why wait every 15 minutes while you can sync your messages every minute or 5 minutes. Use Color Led Message sync to get your messages faster.

    Bedside Mode
    ------------------
    Color Led Message will automatically turn off notification when you turn on Beside Mode. You can enable and disable this feature in the Settings.

    Screen and Password Lock Sounds
    --------------------
    Another unique feature is to play a sound when the screen or password locked or unlocked.

    Active Frame (for OS10.2 and Lower)
    -----------------
    When you put Color Led Message in active frame you will see the Battery Percentage and Memory Left status on the screen. This again is unique feature in Color Led Message.

    No Cellular Signal
    ------------------------
    Set a different Led color when there is no cell signal.


    NOTE: BlackBerry promised background apps coming soon. Color Led Message must be running in the background.

    Application Permissions: You must allow all the permissions asked by Color Led Message. If you denied any of the permissions the application will not run properly. Color Led Message does not send or store your PIM information. It just reads the information.

    I used BeBuzz on my previous BB's and when I switched to the z10 looked at color id. I downloaded the free version to give it a try. I didn't like that I had to keep the app open as an active frame in order for the app to work. Is this the same? Is there any chance that this might change?

    Yes. This is because BlackBerry has not giving developers more apis to work with. They have promised background apps support soon. At which time we will update our app to run in the background.

    I have downloaded colorID, Hub++ and now this and this is the best as it has all the features that the others are going to add in the future. I would prefer this is in the OS but this will do a great job until then.

    Just wondering why this app doesn't work without access to your contacts even though you can add numbers that aren't in your contact list?

    I have just found a major problem with this app. If I put my phone onto vibrate for a meeting etc I still get the tone playing. I know you can turn off the tone and vibrate via the app for a specific time but I don't want to have to do this for each meeting I go to, plus I need to have vibrate on so I know I have a message as I don't keep my phone out while in meetings.

    The apps doesn't turn off the system tone or vibrate. It only works within the app itself. why? because BlackBerry has not released the Notification Profile apis yet. Once they do this then I can update the app.

    If you want Color Led Message to handle tones then you need goto the Notification Settings and turn off Tones for messages. this way you will not get any tones unless it comes from Color Led Message app.

    If you denied access to the Contacts app then the app can do a lookup or wont work. It may not launch either if permissions are not allowed.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I am happy for the app to handle turning the tones off but there doesn't seem to be a quick way to do this without setting a specific time for the tones to be turned off.
    It's a shame about needing contact access to work as I sometimes have numbers I would like to add but are not in my contacts. Would there be an opportunity to use wildcards in the contact names as I organise some by categories instead of using a number?

    You can still manually add a number so i'm sure if I follow you this question. What do you mean by wildcard with contact names? The app does not deal with contact names when it filters messages. It only deals with numbers, email address and keywords.

    Iv had the full version on my older BlackBerry s' for years and loved it. I miss the bbm ability and can't for BlackBerry to give u that ability again. Btw. This dev is awesome for a dressing ur concerns privately. I have many times pm'd him and he responded very quickly. Great dev and great service. Looking anxiously for updates when available.

    Only on critique. And that's that I had the full paid version from old BlackBerry but it's now not there on my Z10 world. And asks to be paid again to download. Mine was from that BlackBerry gift from way back when they gave apps away for a short time due to a system malfunction as a thank you for putting up with things.

    Thanks again for getting back so quickly. By wildcards I meant if I have a work colleague I put 'work' in front of his name, it would be great if a filter could have all contacts that have this in their name flash a different led colour. I know you have said only the telephone number is used not the name but why is the contact access needed if just the telephone number is required if details such as name aren't used at all?

    And was I right that there is no quick way to turn the tones off without setting a specific time?

    One of the key features for me in this kind of tool is reminders, particularly audible reminders.

    Because if I miss a phone call/SMS/email and am not constantly checking the LED, I'd like the device to periodically play a reminder sound and/or vibration.

    Does this app have this capability? If not, what is the likelihood of having it in the future?

    I also purchased this app and I think it is much better than the Hub++ app that I purchased however it would be great to have a switch within the app to quickly turn off audible notifications in addition to keeping the scheduled profile timer function - This small addition would make this app awsome!

    do you mean to turn off system sound if so there there is no way to turn off the system sound like setting the Profile to All Off or Phone Only.

    Hopefully BB will release the sdk soon.

    No, I mean having it doing exactly what the time profile is doing now except having a switch to do it manually instead of having to set a set time. For example if I was going into a meeting at 1pm I would like to be able to shut off the ringer and or vibrator via your app by pressing a button vs setting the time profile to start at 1pm and end a 2pm and then resetting to the normal daily time profile.

    Smiley88. I really commend you for coming on the forums and such and talking to uses like you do. It's dev's like you that will succeed cause you really want to improve your stuff. And listen to what people are looking for and need an app too do. Cheers on you. And we all look forward to ur apps just getting better and better. Can't wait for BlackBerry to allow your app to work in background and play nice with natives. Like bbm
