Call FlashCall Flash : Flash alert on Calls, SMS & Instant Messaging apps!

If you want any third party app to be added in the list just email me at

Prefer Standard over Alternative and Alternative over Alternative 2. If the flash doesn’t turn on with either of these drivers send me an email at

Please, If you plan to do a bad review, make a comment in order to fix any problems and improve this app. In the end, we all want it to work perfectly for everyone 😉

If your phone starts talking after enabling the “Notification Service” this is a Samsung-Talkback issue:

Problem with Handcent?
Go to Handcent → Settings → Application Settings → Default Messaging application → Disable.
You may also disable “Play animation” in the “Send” settings (Thanks Todd).

Might not work on dual SIM phones as it should. Please don’t rate badly for that.

Test mode.
Three flash drivers. Prefer “Standard” over “Alternative” and “Alternative” over “Alternative 2”.
Sleeping period.

Notification flash modes (Time based or Repetitive).
Flash notification for more instant messaging apps, like viber, facebook messanger, what’s up etc…
