Torch


A simple torch application. Free, with no ads.

This app controls your device's camera LED to make it act as a torch (flashlight). That's it.

Tested on:
* LG Nexus 5 (with Kit Kat 4.4)
* LG Nexus 4 (with Jelly Bean 4.2.1)
* Samsung Galaxy Nexus (with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.2)
* HTC EVO 3D (with Gingerbread 2.3.4)

Also noted to work on:
* Samsung Galaxy S II
* Samsung Galaxy W
* Samsung Galaxy Note
* Samsung Galaxy Note II
* Samsung Nexus S
* Motorola Droid II
* HTC Wildfire
* HTC Droid DNA

Thanks for all who's let us know if this worked for their device (or not)!

Note: The additional permission for widget support in 1.1 (SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW) is to work around limitation on some devices' cameras (notably my own Samsung Galaxy Nexus), where a preview surface needs to be present for the camera's LED torch mode to be effective.

P.S.: The source code is open, hosted on github (https://github.com/santa4nt/Galaxy-Torch).

Recent changes:
v1.6.2:
Complete Italian translation.

v1.6.1:
Strobe mode! Enable strobing flashlight from Settings.
Add Indonesian translation.

Simple but turns off when phone is locked Works on LG/Google Nexus 5. But it should stay on when phone is locked. Would be nice if the volume buttons would switch the light on/off in locked state.

Great spp. Small size. Its a flashlight. Its as bright as any other. It only uses 100+KB in size instead of 7-8MB. If you just need a flashlight, this is the way to go. If you need one that says its the brightest or it has a loud sound or some other nonsense then go get that. But, for a flashlight that works well, is small in size that doesnt eat up your memory, get this flashlight. Its the best for your phone and your power consumption.
