Whoever said BlackBerries weren't fun was clearly mistaken. One of the traits BlackBerries possess that other mobile devices have since followed suit is that of the red LED light there to kindly remind you of unread messages or updates. Well, as cool as a miniature Christmas light is to have at the top of your phone, we all know Christmas lights are much more fun when they can be different colors.

When you download the Blink application, you're able to customize the color of your LED light from red to just about any color or color combination you'd want. The app also allows you to set different colors for different updates. For example, your texts could blink red while your Facebook updates blink in a disco ball array of colors.

Here's a list of what this exciting application is capable of customizing:

Multi-Alerts system
Multi Email accounts support
Manual mode
Customize your LED color for:
  • FaceBook
  • Twitter
  • Whatsapp
  • Beejive Talk
  • Social Feeds
  • Google Talk
  • Coverage Indicator
  • E-mail
  • BBM
  • PIN
  • SMS & MMS
  • Task
  • Calendar
  • Missed Call
  • Incoming Phone Call
  • Call connected
  • Low Battery Alert
  • Low Memory Alert
  • Yahoo! Messenger
  • Trillian
  • Alarm Pro
  • Live messenger

Here's a few other cool things you can do:
Blink Duration: set a duration for an alert to get more battery life.
Advanced: set an on and off time for advanced frequency setting.
Memory Line: set a line for low memory alert
Stop blinking: stop blinking with touching any key or after reading.

I have downloaded this application and for whatever reason, being able to customize my phone even more, something I'm a huge fan of, really made my phone feel brand new again. I won't lie, I sent out a few random text messages to friends just so they'd reply and I could try out my new LED light. Try it out, let us know what you think!
