Doesn't work on Nexus S LED doesn't turn on in camera flash mode. It's a shame because it seems to be the only one without unreasonable permission requirements.
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.
Keeps a title bar at the top of the screen, regular use WILL result in burn in. Disappointed that title bar does not auto hide to prevent burn in.
Simple, effective. Works great on the transformer (no led flash). Other apps want crazy permissions, this one keeps it simple and does its job beautifully.
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.
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.
