    Has anyone ever attempted to make a tweak so incoming text messages (or perhaps all alerts) produce a ringtone/vibrate pattern/flash sequence to spell out the message in Morse code?

    I'd love this. For now I made my own txt tone that is "CQ" each time I get a text.

    Nope, you can make your own vibration sequence for ringtones though and can do it for each individual contact.

    There's also FlashEnhancer. It uses the LED flash for messaging/system notifications. You can't make it do Morse code though.

    Why use that app? iOS has accessibility options built-in which let you d the same thing.

    Because FlashEnhancer allows you to set options. You can set it off/on for push notifications, system messages, calls, SMS/MMS/iMessage and so on. You can set the number of times it flashes and the amount of time between each flash.

    With the built in thing the only option you have is to either have it on or off.

    No problem. One note though. Like any tweak, use at your own discretion.

    I've found that FlashEnhancer has a little irritating bug that pops up from time to time. You'll get a notification, but the LED flash won't stop. It keeps going. The only thing you can do is either to respring or reboot to stop it.

    It seems to be the worst when you have the LED flash set for calls and then get some other type of notification. So, I turned it off for that and while it does still happen from time to time, it's nowhere near as bad as it was when I had it set for calls.
