*Edit: This edit comes years after my original review, bc I see lots of people saying the light shuts off on them after a short time and they dont like that. I wish I could respond to those people bc there are settings where you can change how long the light stays on. It's that simple! *Great app. Does what its 'pose to w/no issues.Works perfect. Bright light. Very handy & useful.
On Samsung S 3 I liked this flashlight best out of about 6 that I've downloaded in the past. However that was until I downloaded it into my new phone. On the galaxy s showcase the flashlight would stay on while I navigated around other tasks.... now I've had to change my rate, because I can't even lock the screen to avoid accidentally hitting the back button thereby turning off the flashlight, because even simply locking the screen will turn the light off! I can barely stand this app now! :-( -not thrilled-
It IS the brightest! I use this app to walk my dog! It definitely covers a large area so that I feel safe when it's late at night, at least as far as light goes. It will also light up a room so you can find your way around. Be careful because it's not a discreet flashlight. It does not claim to be either! I love the regular flashlight feature as well as the S.O.S. feature. I just replaced my phone with the same model under warranty and this was one of the first apps I made sure was on my phone. I use it several times per week.
Bright, but ads can blind you The light is indeed super bright, and works fantastically. It opens quickly and remains bright until yiu close it. However, the ads that appear onscreen can end up blinding you as they change, especially if you are using this app in the dark. (Which, you would be, it's a flashlight...) The screen faces you, so any ads that appear throw light in your face. This gives the same experience as when someone actually turns a flashlight on in your face. I prevent this by covering the screen with my hand completely
Never leaves me in the dark. This app is especially helpful when I take my doxie out to potty at night. She likes to run to the far end of the yard roll around in the grass or snow, then come flying back like she's done her business and deserves to get her treat.. She can't fool me when I've got my phone because this app is SO bright I can keep an eye on her clear across the yard.
Great light, but wish it lasted longer The light is definitely bright enough, I just wish it stayed on for longer. I often have to restart it in the middle of whatever it is I'm doing, which can be quite inconvenient, depending on what that something is. For example, I used it to light the area while my boyfriend buried our dead cat. It added to the misery of the moment to have to keep restarting the app. A feature that would allow you to easily restart the flashlight feature would be helpful, rather than having to close the app and reopen it.
