Great screen flash light. Does exactly what I need it to. Like that the screen light can be adjusted. Note that using the flash does not work on my phone but the flash can be used as flashlight from the Android UI. Died (crashed on every start) after an update but the bugfix was released before I could even file an issue (within 24 hours).
Pointless updated ruined it. Was the best simple light app, updated today and it has ruined the app. Uninstalling
Love it. Saved my life. I wouldn't have seen the land-shark had it not been for my own Open Source Flashlight. Thank You! Living at the beach I need to worry most about bull sharks, not only can they live in fresh water for years on end, but apparently have started acclimating themselves to living OUT of water all the time as well, and you really need to be on your toes at all times to avoid becoming chum. I would be dead if it had not been for open intents flashlight. Not only do they not screw you with any add on spying programs, they actively try out their programs in every sort of situation, just to make sure it won't hang up or freeze in a crucial time. Like when walking my poor dogs late at night, I can hear the waves crashing on a clear night, what used to be a peaceful moment now could have me frozen like a tuna in headlights. No more worries for me! OI flashlights has given me peace. Inner peace all from an android program this small. What more could I ask for? (Your experience may differ from my own, we are after all our own unique flightless birds that love herring, and as such we each experience life differently from each other)
Finally No adds, and no ridiculous permissions! Took a long time going through flashlight apps to find it. Thanks. Works great on HTC One! Simple flashlight app with option to use screen or camera LED. Both work great.
Other light apps are way too disco for me. Not everyone dotes on gimmick-laden software. I like an app that does one thing, does it very well, and takes up very little space. I was slightly put off at first at having to download a separate component to change color/intensity of the back light, but it's logical if you think about it: chances are that you'll need the device for a quick temporary light, not for flashy colors and other fluff. If I have one suggestion, it's that the screen backlight have two brightness settings readily at hand, and that the app start at a lower setting. Maybe my backlight is unusually bright, but when I first turn OI Flashlight on in the darkness, I get a burst of white light that's rather dazzling.
So refreshing! Having browsed 10+ other flashlights in the store, it's so satisfying to find a real Open Source version that doesn't require a host of irrelevant permissions. This app requires just the permissions it need to control the camera flash. The other flashlight apps I found all wanted permission to connect to the Internet and to know my location — so they can display adds. The app worked perfectly on my Nexus 4.
