A very simple app that does exactly what you need it to do with no extra frills. One tap on the app turns the light on. Another tap on the screen turns the light off. And pressing the back button turns it off entirely. Very efficient and very intuitive. It's also an incredibly small app, which I really like! The only issue with this app is that you can't use it while other apps on the phone. It's still good though!
Keeps phone in awake state when not in use, draining the battery. Issues with app keeping phone in awake state when not in use. This drains the battery. Case in point: Used torch for about 5 secs to find something under my sofa. Just short of 10 hours later and I see it's used 29% of battery power due to having kept phone in awake state for 9hrs 50 minutes. So, effectively it's used 29% of my battery for 5 secs of use. Poor.
Doesn't spy on you like most other light apps If you're after a flashlight app then get this one. Works perfectly and doesn't ask for dodgy permissions to trace your movements or steal bank details. The app is lightweight and they also show you their code which helps to prove they don't want to track you
Works as described Works fine on Galaxy S Captivate running CM7 nightly (no LED flash on phone). Very light and fast app with good permissions set. I'd like to see an option to or an automatic jump to 100% screen brightness when activated, and return to previous state when done. That would make it 5 stars in my opinion. Edit: not fond of the fact that it doesn't keep the screen on and there's no option to do so. Very annoying when trying to use it in a tight spot.
Moto G 2014 Perfect app. Didn't need permissions for anything and simple to use. Got this as KitKat didn't have a torch app but after the update to Lollipop there is now a native torch function for my phone. Great while I needed it.
Used to be great Used to be one of my fav apps, it had options and wouldn't turn off if your finger hit the screen while using it. Now you're down to one LED, and the usability sucks! Unless you're very careful not to touch the screen while using.
Long pressing the search button can now start Torch. The first time you do this, you will have the option to make starting Torch the default action. Thanks to James Crisp for this improvement.
While Torch is running, long pressing the search button exits Torch.
