Flashlight goes way beyond the standard white light that it provides into a world you can illuminate with special effects that you customize. Effects include magnifying lens, candy hearts that you can personalize, fireworks, festive holiday lights, Halloween ghosts and goblins, photos, and more. The potentially life-saving white light this app provides is a must, but the colorful world you can also create with it is even better!

PLEASE NOTE: Continued use of the LED flash may dramatically decrease battery life.

- Use LED light on iPhone 4, including as a strobe light
- Full white screen
- Open to the effect of your choice
- Custom color (defaults to Bondi Blue)
- Slide/flick up and down to dim the screen
- Slide with two fingers to change the speed of effects
- Customize every screen and colors
- Strobe light modes: Strobe, Trippy, Deep Trippy, Abyss Trippy, S.O.S., Smooth, 2-Color, 6-Color, Yin-Yang, Chasers, Holiday Lights, Hearts, Hexy, Stars&Stripes, and Halloween.

Ratings and Reviews

Does what it says very well.


Of course this just turns your screen white. But I like how you can swipe the screen to change colour (for testing dead pixels). To the reviewer who said it should turn up your screen brightness to maximum, I don't think apps are capable of doing that- that is something that is only down to the users own settings, so you shouldn't put that against this app.
I tried another free light app from here, and it constantly crashed my Touch. This one hasn't done any such thing, and is very handy for me as I am usually up much later than my family, and I use it to rummage around upstairs without having to turn on lights and wake everyone up. great.

you never know when you need a flash light?


When I bought my i-touch, this is one of the first ap. I installed.
I did not think I would need it, but, I just thought it would be handy just in case?
I was walking down the stairs and the lights went out, all I had in my hand was my i-touch.
I just went for the flash light ap, and it worked, and I was grateful for it, thank you!
I will need to re look at its funtions to see if I can make it brighter? I was grateful to have had it, and its free!
Thanks again, it really helped me out, being a lady on my own.



I have a 3GS so i don't have the small flash light on the front of my iPhone. This app lights the screen up White. It doesn't sound like much but it's more than enough to light up my whole bedroom. Believe it or not I use this app on a daily basis, mostly as a bedside lamp. It's even proved handy when I've dropped my car keys in the dark, and with the quick and easy to select - extra colours it's the perfect app for making photography light trails! Tbh for free - you cannot complain! 4 stars as the adverts despite being small do annoy me.
