    Hey there .. I'm not sure if this was the correct place for this request...

    Just wondering if there any chance to see an app that can control the 8x LED light to make it work with messages and social updated ... This will be a great addition to the phone.

    Even hoping that HTC will pay attention to this and push an update or an app.

    Hi, there is a feature suggestion on the MS feature suggestion page to use the capacitive buttons as a notification light. You can cast your vote by visiting Use the Windows capacitive touch buttons as a "Notification Light" The more votes people cast the more likely it will be for MS to incorporate this feature into the firmware. Cheers.

    Do you think that one light can flash alone? I mean the windows logo without the search and back key? Anw I think that's a feature that the OEMs should incorporate, but I did give it three votes on the link :)

    I honestly don't know for sure but I watched a YouTube video on how to replace the screen on a 920. The three capacitive buttons are on a separate PCB attached to the digitizer so I'm guessing that each button has its own LED. If so, then each button should be able to be lit independently of each other.

    That's a cool idea. I'm guessing it for your some place loud and you can't hear the vibrate but are able to see the lights, whether it's face up/down.
