Torch

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.

As Advertised! Other popular apps state they only use your camera, but after install, antivirus software shows they access over 16 private items on phone. Trust me, my antivirus proved this to be accurate. That's unfortunate, because they're being both misleading and selling your private information to third parties. Torch, on the other hand, uses camera's light and deemed safe, according to antivirus software. Thank you Torch!

Handy and Perfect I love using flashlights to save power and all that but batteries die quick. I turn this on and BAM...bright and at the touch of a button. I recommend it for seeing and adding flash for pics too!

THANK YOU! it seems stupid but it's actually really hard to find a decent flashlight app that works properly and isn't crowded with ads :)
