    Hello Community,
    here I created an application specially for the Storm and for the Bold: BlinkWhileCall it is called.
    Here is a link to the application in the CrackBerry Software Store.


    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 too 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!



    It is priced at a very lean $1.99 and you simply install it and then you don't have to look at it anymore. It does not have an icon and not a user interface.

    Video on YouTube about the application:


    Install OTA or via the Desktop Manager.

    That would be great - a visual indicator for when I'm driving and have the stereo up. I usually have it in my lap on vibe but sometimes with this method i worry about the ol twigs n berries...

    That looks better than I expected. I was wondering about how attention-grabbing it would be, but that looks like it would definitely get my attention if it was in the console in my truck.

    Tried to download but it won't add it to my cart right now. I'll try again in a minute.

    I notice you said the phone has to be on silent. Will it work on vibrate also?

    Any Idea why it says 3 bucks on the App Store when I'm looking for it on the Storm?

    And when I try to add it to my cart.. nothing happens.. it won't add...

    It is not yet listed on the Software Store. Will be active in about 12h. Normally you can already add the app to the cart but at the moment mobihand has server issues.
    There is BlinkWhileCall and BlinkWhileCall (Bold & Storm), same app but for different devices.

    Does this also blink purple when my sound profile is set to "normal". Basically does the purple light blink every time I get a call, whether I'm in silent, vibe, or regular ringtone mode?

    Yeah that I would like to know too. And whether or not it can be deactivated without uninstalling.

    So I can't buy it then?

    It is active in all Profiles and you cannot deactivate it other then uninstalling it. It's only in v1.0.8 so there might be things changing ;-)

    It would be great is the color could be customized. I'm not a fan of purple.

    Also, it would be great if you (or someone) could develop an app that would change the profile when the device is charging.

    Example: Vibrate in pocket, Normal when charging.

    I would definitely buy this, especially if you could code it to enable/disable on any ring profile. That would be awesome to use for silent/vibrate profiles.
