Flashlight by Rik
By Henri Asseily
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The completely free, ad free, advanced flashlight app for your phone with all possible controls in a simple interface optimized for speed. Now fully optimized for iOS 8 and iPhone 6!
Averaging 5-star ratings and millions of downloads, this flashlight app is a must-have utility for your phone. It fully remembers its state when you quit, and doesn't have any useless bloated art. Even if you already have a flashlight app, my bet is that it wastes your phone's memory and loads slower than this one.
This app transforms your iPhone into a very powerful flashlight using the torch of the rear camera. It works 100% of the time (unlike others), it is exceedingly small and fast loading (unlike others), and is completely free (unlike others). No internet connection used, no ads, no upsells, no marketing, just a flashlight.
I believe an app like this should be standard on all iPhones with a torch, which is why I provide it FREE, without ads, and will ALWAYS DO SO.
- No ads
- Flash on/off, INSTANT on.
- Light intensity control
- Any screen size including the latest iPhone 6 Plus
- Emergency Morse SOS mode on shake
- Strobe with complete control over the light AND dark timings (10ms to 2s)
- Morse mode (manual strobe)
- Loads extremely quickly, fastest flashlight on the app store
- Can completely darken your screen for better effect
- No wasteful pretty images
- Remembers its state when in background mode and across restarts
- It is impossible to keep the flash running in the background, iOS forbids it for 3rd party apps.
- This app manages a 10ms strobe speed (100 strobes / second), which is about the best that the devices can achieve.
If you're looking for a flashlight app that just works, loads as quickly as possible, stays in multitasking memory as much as possible for later reuse, or want complete control over strobe timings, this one is for you.
Please note: Continued use of the flash may dramatically decrease battery life
What's New in Version 3.0
Perfection is but a continuous journey forward. Dear friends with big iPhones, this one is for you.
• Fix for iOS 8.3
• Supports natively all iPhone sizes including the 6 Plus
• Added Hz value for those who asked (synchronize the dark/light timers to see it)
• Full rewrite in the new Swift language and thorough optimization. It's faster and faster... Note that right now any app using Swift gets an 8.5MB overhead because of the embedded Swift libraries. I expect that to go away as Apple gets all that stuff by default in the OS. So temporarily this app is going to be abnormally large (still smaller than the other stuff out there, but not insanely tiny as you've all been used to).
As usual, I'd love your feedback and reviews. And let your friends know about it. No real friend leaves another without a strobe flashlight. Because.
The VERY BEST torch app
No fuss simple none fancy user interface. No ads!!! No money making gimmick. BRIGHTNESS CONTROL yay!
Keep it up Rik! Please don't ever change it and thank you for updating it for latest ISO.
Can't express enough how simple and good this app is compared to all the other light apps out there!
A very nice compact app. It does not want to take control of the camera or know your location and has no adds. Excellent app which is a "must have".
No ads, nice manual flash feature.
