Loved this; doesn't work on new phone. Has worked flawlessly and without spyware or ads for years, but camera flash does not light on Galaxy S6. It has its own flashlight, but I'd still like to use this trusted friend. (OK, heavy on the anthropomorphism.)
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.
Does not work on Samsung Note 4 This needs work. I like the apps IO puts out because they do not spy and they do not use ads. But this app will not turn on the led from the camera other ones do turn on the led but they use ads Please fix this
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.
Not intrusive Works perfectly on my older Samsung galaxy s blaze, Sony Experia Z and Z1S. Did not work on my note 3. No special unnecessary permissions. Thanks for keeping it simple all around.
Review Much better for my poop phone than the other 7 mb flashlight app I was using. One downside is that when the camera flash is on, the backlight is not automatically maxed out too.
