    Default Creating an app that allows customization for notifications such as led colors, vibrate ... ect.

    So I want to create an app where the user can adjust the colors of led, vibrate, and other notifications. I made a small app practicing working with the LED's but I don't know how to change the built in Android preferences. Any ideas of how to do this, where I should look for help? I've been reading the documentation but I have not been able to find out how Android stores these preferences.

    The app I am looking to create would be similar to light flow - LED Controller app.

    Pick a search engine and keywords: android led
    See what the api has to say about controlling the light if available, there is plenty to read there.
    Any time java or android is involved, their respective API is always an excellent (if not the best) resource available to the public

    I have been messing around with a simple app where buttons would trigger led notifications using NotificationManager and Notification. My problems is I can't find any documentation or examples on Github that I could use for references. Looking through the Android API, I can't find any references on how I could change the notification preferences.

    I want to create a user interface where the user can change what kind of notification (led color, vibrate ... etc) is used for certain event. Say someone receives a text, they can specify what color the led is when a text is received. I am assuming that is stored in android as some kind of preference, that is what I meant by notification preference.
