Firy! Oh yeah, this one has the fastes respond in comparisson with other apps of this type. It lights up the same moment you press it + it's the best lookin' widget, for me. And i like that it's simple, just turns on the flash, nothing else... I mean, if you expected a real torch coming out of your phone, flashing stroboscope... Only thing that spoils it is the fact that when you use it as a widget with GO LOCKER it turns off exactly 10 seconds after the screen turns off... You know the drill, dev: ) PLEASE FIX

Useful app I found this app very helpful when... there were power cuts, I was on a dark road, I had to read small markings, I had to see through an envelop, I was afraid... :)
