GhostBeam

GhostBeam


An invisible 1x1 widget that switches your Camera LED on or off for your phone to suffice as an flashlight. This has been specifically designed to be invisible since some people like their homescreens clutter-free.

Disclaimer: It's only been tested on a few selected devices, every device has it's own implementation of the LED Flashlight, so it might work for most people but some might experience the LED shutting off when turning off the screen or not being able to use it at all. The widget is provided as is, if it doesn't work I'm sorry but I've done my best to support multiple devices.

To install, just add the widget to one of your homescreens. It will display the Ghost icon so you can move the widget to it's desired location with long-press. After the first click/touch on it, it will go invisible.

Enjoy!

For developers/enthousiasts, I've released the source code here : https://github.com/nickmeessen/ghostbeam
Feel free to fork and improve ;-)

Recent changes:
-- Version 1.1.0

When first placing the widget you will see the Ghost Icon, this to easily move/resize the widget in place. After you click it for the first time it will go invisible and enable the LED toggling.

Used to work for my Galaxy Note 3, but recently stopped working out of nowhere. ): This is the only flashlight widget I have found that I really like.

Good Some people desire the torch icon, hence making the widget invisible is always not a good choice. Please add option to make it visible/invisible. Also it automatically stops after some time (about 2 min).

LOVE IT!!!! What a great idea and I love the flashlight. It's the same flashlight all the others are trying to get you to download, except this one has a cool widget. Great job!!!
