Beautiful, Simple, Works well It's a great torch/flashlight which looks smart, works cleanly & is easy to use on KitKat on Nexus 5. I'm about to uninstall now as Lollipop has a torch app built in, so I don't need it anymore, but would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for one. It also has a few timer features which the stock Lollipop flashlight doesn't have. It also has an easier to use larger button than the Lollipop app if you have cold or wet fingers or have trouble using small icons.
App: Good looking, simple interface. One second delay to open on my phone. Once open, there is no noticeable delay between button press and LED turning on (have not seen another flashlight app this fast) . Widget: good looking, fits well on Android 4.3 lock screen (so it can be used without unlocking your phone), half second delay between button press and LED turning on.
NEXUS FLASHLIGHT-THE BEST FOR ANY ANDROID DEVICE! I tried just about every flashlight app available on Google Play and Nexus Flashlight is the BEST! Easy to use, and ultra bright. I setup the widget on my home screen and anytime I need light a super-bright LED is at my disposal. I am not sure how many lumens this puts out but I will research the specs and edit this review. Don't waste your time looking, this one's the best! * Edit: This light puts out xx lumens!
How it should be This is what I expected a flashlight app to be: small, simple, non-invasive, and well-executed. No ridiculous 4+MB download. Not a lot of unnecessary frills and whiz-bang overblown features. No requests to know my location, WiFi password, social security number, and what I ate for lunch yesterday. Just a simple flashlight with a simple widget at a 1/3MB download. Going to kick the tires for a little while, and if all is well, I'll gladly update to the donate version.
Fantastic replacement for stock! While the stock Galaxy assistive light is fine, it has a few major quirks that make it difficult to use efficiently and make it bloated. This solves all of those problems in one tiny (> 400kb) package. It's small, unobtrusive, and can be turned on outside of the widget. This means that, unlike assistive light, it can be started through a shortcut. This means that the end user does not have to navigate to the widget, turn it on, and waste 2-1 screen space. Well worth 5 stars.
Widget is not perfect. It was very hard to find a simple flashlight app that wasn't also trying to be 3 other things. Works on my nexus 5 no lag at all compared to other flash light apps I have tried. Unfortunately the widget needs to be turned on then off then on again to activate the LED.
