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.
