Motorola Releases Notification Light Toggle Widget for Most Android Devices

To help manage the massive notification light on devices like the RAZR HD, Motorola has created a Notification Light Widget that can be downloaded from Google Play for free. It’s about as simple as it sounds – tap it to turn your notification light off, tap it again to turn it back on. It should work for other devices as well, even those not made by Motorola. And even if ¬†your device has a way to turn this off through Settings, this is a quicker shortcut that can be applied to a home screen.

Cheers Chris!

  • My light blinks whenever one of my Facebook friends farts.

    Does the light bug you that much that you need an app to turn it off?

      It is great during the day, but can be a little bright at night by the bed. I have used some form of toggle for all of my phones so I don’t have to see them blinking at night. They are also looking into integrating this into their smart actions application so it can be toggled automatically

  • Just ordered my Droid Razr Maxx HD today. Still wondering if I should root and then use OTA RootKeeper to try to update to Jellybean or update and wait for a root exploit. Any advice?

    • chrisc2u

      Well if you want to root, I would do so before the update. There is no guarantee a JB root process will ever be released. You want to follow the instructions carefully and update SU,binaries and protect root with OTA rootkeeper before you update to JB to keep root.

  • What! No Droid X support! I can’t wait till January 26th when I can finally get a new phone/switch carriers.

      Yeah… I was also bummed to find this incompatible with my X2. Thanks again for totally abandoning this flakey, POS phone, MOTO. I keep my X2 on a desk dock by my bed at night. Because, the display is too bright (even with it dimmed), I turn the display off… but then the notification light flashes. It’s amazing how bright that light is in a dark room… very annoying. For nearly two years now, I’ve been draping my wallet over the phone on the dock every night just to block that stupid notification light. This app sounded GREAT… but alas, I can’t have it. Once again I’m reminded of what a poor choice I made to buy this phone. Unfortunately I’m stuck with it for a few more months until my current contract expires. Counting the days!

  • So I installed it but can’t find it in my list of widgets. Any tips anyone can offer?

      restart your phone

      Try rebooting your phone. It worked on my Bionic.

      Or just force close the launcher and reopen. Just clearing the cache might even do it too.

    I just use swipe actions built into Nova. I swipe up to activate. No ugly icon on your screen!

    How about a notification light on when my origional RAZR will get Jelly Bean?
