Best Free Flash Alert Apps for Android Phones
Often in our day to day lives we find ourselves in situations, or at places where it is hard to keep your phone on normal ringer mode. Some of the common occasions are when you are in meetings, or in a class, or some other place according to your profession. During these times, normally our phone remains on a silent mode and we tend to miss out on important calls that we would not have missed otherwise. An app that silently attracts your attention towards the incoming call without creating any noise can prove to be really effective. In addition to such occasions, due to the various features of these apps, there are many more benefits of such apps like reminding you of missed calls, messages, and much more. The below mentioned 5 flash alert apps for android can prove to be useful options for you.
Flash Notification for All App:
The first flash alert app reviewed here for you is Flash Notification for All App. This is a user friendly app with multiple options that are easy to understand. You can begin by turning on flash notification for all your incoming calls and messages, and move ahead to turn on notifications for missed calls and unread messages. You can choose the interval time between two flash notifications, and also select how many flashes you want per second. While choosing for incoming calls you can select at what point during the call will your flash start working, and also whether you want the flash to work while in silent mode, or normal mode, or both. While selecting for missed calls and unread messages, you can select duration time, flash while screen is ON, or while you are busy on a call, and a couple of more options. Finally, you can also choose the work duration for the app, and at what point you want the app to close automatically in order to save the remaining battery of your phone. All this can be done from one single interface.
While there is no doubt about the productive features of this App, I do have some questions regarding its consistency. The app does contain a few bugs and tends to stop working occasionally. Also, the irritating ads springing on the screen continuously do not please the user either. Nevertheless, do try it out once from the link given below.

Flash Alert 2:
The next flash alert App reviewed for you is Flash Alert 2. In terms of interface, this is a very good looking app that makes a good impression on the user straightaway. The interface is completely clean, and simple. However, this initial hope does give way to a little disappointment at a later stage, if you are a free user of the app. But talking about the positives first, Flash alert 2 is a very small app which hardly consumes any space on your device. There is also an authentication procedure in which the app tests whether your device is compatible with it in terms of having a flash and whether its working fine or not. After that you are taken to the beautiful interface of the app, the screenshot for which has been given above. Here you can choose to turn on flash alert for incoming calls & messages. You can also choose the type of flash ( there are 3 types) you want, although there is hardly any difference in them.
Apart from these two settings, everything else comes pre-designated to you, and you need to upgrade to the paid version to alter these settings. Like the apps remains on for all your different modes (normal, silent, etc.) and you cannot turn them off , unless you become a Pro user. There are also other features like change status bar, turn on DND mode, and many more things that come are reserved for paid users. Thus, this app tends to disappoint a bit to all the free users, but can be a real bonus if you upgrade to the paid version. Try it out for yourself from the link given below.

On the interface of the app, you will find two segregated columns, one for incoming calls and the other for message alerts. Both of them come with Test buttons, so that you can test every feature before finally applying it.
In the first column, for incoming calls, the app allows you to set the duration for which your flash will remain on and when will it turn off. This duration can be set on a scale of 50-1000, and the unit is milliseconds. This determines for how long your flash will remain on when you receive a call. There is one more option in this column where you can choose to turn off the flash by pressing the volume button when you receive a call.

The fifth and final app reviewed is Flash Alert. Basically, apart from the interface, this app and the above mentioned app, ie .Flash Light Alerts are almost identical to each other. The interface of this app is much better looking and user friendly, but the presence of those unwanted ads really makes you cringe at times. Apart from these ads, there are some really good features waiting to be put to use. You can begin with the enabling the flash for all the incoming calls & also set the timings for the flash to turn on/off. You can also choose to keep the app working for certain modes and keep if off for others. While you are sleeping, there is a sleep mode that you can activate, enter the time period in it, and the app will not disturb you for that specified time period.

The app also works with other applications in your device, and you can make a list of applications for which you want the flash to work, every time you receive a notification.

In my opinion, there are at least out of these 5 flash alert apps that can prove to be a real winner. Apps like Flash Notification for All App, Flash Light Alerts, and Flash Alerts have some real good features and can be prove to be productive. You can do a lot of things manually like adjusting time for flash, syncing it with other applications in your mobile phone and a lot more. However, they also have their own issues, technical glitches and unwanted ads being some common ones in the list. But still, compared to the other two apps, which lack behind slightly due to their simplicity, these three are good options to bank on. But, depending on your choice and usage, I recommend you to go through all of them once and then come to a final conclusion.
