I was very hopeful for this app, and it's close, but not quite there. Yes, pretty much all of the app notifications activate the True Edge lighting effect, but not all of them display the "bubble" at the top of the screen with which app you are being notified about, nor do they all show the "bubble" that has a brief preview of the notification. Also, I find it to be inconsistent. One email will come and no "bubble", then another email will come and it will be there. Same with Twitter, Facebook, etc. This is on the Galaxy Note 10. Would love to see it 100% consistent.

Google not putting a simple LED notification light on the Pixel 3 was stupid and not user friendly. That said, while this app is a bit more obvious than an LED, it's a great alternative. Works great on Pixel 3, easy to install. Lots of customization, from colors to edge width as well as duration and repeat frequency. No ads, but still, well worth the minimal cost to upgrade and get the extra features.

Finally found one of these apps that actually works! Only issue is I can't figure out if there's a paid version that will allow to change color for different notifications. I don't see anywhere where it gives that option. I tried hitting the no ads button but nothing happens. Other then that, it works, and even works for app notifications that other lighting apps didn't!
