This app is really nice. It's a simple flashlight that turns on upon opening, can switch on/off, bright white screen option, and best of all: requires only necessary permissions. It does not work in the background/with screen off, but I'd have no use for it that way. If you need a flashlight for a long time, use a real one; your phone's light is not meant to stay on for extended periods.
Flashlight This app is broken on my phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and when I open the app for the first time the flash comes on by default. When I tap the flashlight button on the phone to turn it off it does. However when I tap it again to turn it back on nothing happens. I have to close and reopen or minimize and go full screen again to get it to work. Seems like 4.0 is free for this reason and if you want a working version (4.1) it will cost you a dollar. Oh well. You get what you pay for or lack of pay for.
Im not sure about this app. I like that the permissions are low, but, under read more it lists like 258kb, which is reasonable. But after download it registers approx 128mb. Im no mb genius, but i do know that my other phone has snoopwall privacy light and it has 244kb. I cannot find snoopwall anymore in playstore, although it still works on my other phone. I just dont like this apps variation foreal. Uninstalling.
No other app can compare! I absolutely am a fan of tech with a few minimalistic features and this is the best I have found as for easy breezy looking for keys in bottom of purse in the dark whilst w as l.p. king at night no matter what absolutely zero complications with this app no ads simply a flashlight that has two options. Well done to this developer simple is sometimes the best go figure.
Before installing any flashlight app check the permissions and size of file. This file is 295k. Others are as much as 6m. All that extra file size is spying on you and serving ads. It works and I am happy to pay the small amount asked for the pro version.
On and off process took way to long, which lead me to spam the on button which broke the app. Consider adding a disabled feature when user is spaming your on/off button. Otherwise it works* but could give issues down the line. I have a galaxy s4, using latest jelly bean update
4.1: Fixed crashing
4.0: I've been listening to your feedback and I have made some improvements:
1. Less sensitive trigger for flashlight.
2. Control the light from the LED and screen separately with two separate buttons
Flashlight stays on after exiting
