This app uses Accessibility services
Torchie requires a service to run in background to intercept PHYSICAL VOLUME BUTTON KEY presses. Since a normal 'Service' cannot intercept Hardware Key presses, an 'Accessibility Service' is needed for this purpose. It does not do anything apart from intercepting Volume Key presses. It is also to be noted that, without internet access, information if collected may also be within the device and not sent out threatening your privacy.

1. For Android 4.0.3 ICS, 4.1 JB, 4.2 JB users ONLY
Flashlight / torch / LED may turn on if you swipe to change volume in volume Panel. (Tip: Disable for screen on)
2. Screen off will not work by default
Torchie functionality is disabled by default in screen off, to prevent battery drain. Using in lock screen will not cause/accelerate battery drain. Advice is that using in lock screen is handy
