05-Apr-2011 New features in version 8:
-- Widget sizes, when adding the widget to your home screen.
The is the most requested feature.
I heard you, and I made it happen as soon as I could.
-- Notification style. There are 2 choices: widget title and toast.
The widget title option will display a text box below the widget:
The toast is a message that pops up for a few seconds, and then goes away:
You can also choose to not have any notification at all.
Here is a preview of the choices you will see at widget install time:
-- I fixed a bug where some rooted CyanogenMod devices would get an ANR during boot.
Q: How do I get it?
A: If you are on a phone or other device, you can
click here to download it from the market.
Q: It rebooted my rooted phone!?
A: Maybe it was waiting for you to answer an SU prompt?
Sometimes, if SU asks you a question and you don't answer it, the phone will reboot.
If that is not your situation, Email me a log at android at squakmt dot com, and I'll try to fix it.
Q: I installed it on my rooted phone, and SU now asks me for permission many times.
Why not ask for permission only once?
A:On rooted phones, you may have to answer the SU prompt multiple times during install and the first time you use the toggle.
The number of times depends on a few things, including how many LEDs you have.
I'm working on making this simpler!
Q: Sometimes, it stops working. It was working fine for a long time. How can I make it work again?
Answer 1 -----: Task managers and task killers will sometimes prevent this from working.
Try adding SimpleLedTogglePlus to the task killer's "Ignore" list.
Answer 2 -----: I have seen other apps that are badly behaved and hang up lots of things on the phone,
including all the widgets.
The only way to fix this is to start removing apps from your phone until things work again.
I suggest removing widget apps first.
There are also phone viruses that can cause this.
Try installing an anti-virus like AVG Antivirus for Android.
Q: Sometimes, I set the switch to "default", and all the lights are still off. How can I get the default notifications and lights back?
A: Put your phone to sleep, and wake it up. Your lights should be back to default.
Q: What are the use cases for this app?
A: Read eBooks and watch video on your phone without the distraction of LEDs shining in your eyes.
Save battery power.
Turn off notification LEDs.
Reduce phone temperature.
Q: How can this possibly reduce the phone temperature? LEDs are cool to the touch. That makes no sense!
A: When you use a LED, it lights up by using electricity from the battery.
When the battery provides electricity, it produces heat.
When you turn off the LED, you ask the battery for less electricity, and produce less heat.
For a more detailed explanation, see the second law of thermodynamics.
Q: One of my lights came on, and it is not being turned off. Can you fix this?
A: Email the following to android at squakmt dot com and I'll fix it as fast as I can:
1. Log from aLogcat.
2. phone model. 3. which light came on? 4. was anything special happening on the phone when it came on?
Q: That's an awful lot of data, just to fix a little bug. Can't you fix it without all that?
A: I'm not a magician, just a simple computer programmer. :-)
Q: How do I use this to change my LED Colors?
A: It does NOT change LED colors. Thanks to all of you who let me know where that idea came from. :-)
Q: It doesn't work on my Motorola/Samsung/Sony/DroidX/etc... Phone.
A: It works on as many phones as possible.
Sometimes adding root access will help it work.
Make sure your device *has* LEDs; some do not!
Q: Can you make it work on my Motorola/Samsung/Sony/etc... Phone?
A: I'd be happy to try. If you live near US 98027, we can meet at a coffee shop, and I can try to make it work on your phone. Email me at android at squakmt dot com .
Q: It crashes my stock, non-rooted phone.
A: Really? That's amazing. Email me a log at android at squakmt dot com, and I'll try to fix it.
