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.

This Old Bald Guy

Had this app for years. Downloaded it for it’s advertised and intended purpose, a FLASHLIGHT. Now, it only works intermittently, has features only children would appreciate as opposed to those of us who are adults and wanted it for it’s advertised and intended purpose, a FLASHLIGHT! When turned on, there is an almost 2 second delay before the flashlight is engaged so that the ‘creator logo’ can be displayed on the view screen. Aside from that safety issue, (and yes I do consider it a safety issue; if I want and need a flashlight in the dark, I want it to come on IMMEDIATELY, without delay), it’s become too easy to initiate the strobe or other effects with a slip of the finger. This is also, in my opinion, a safety issue. Deleting this app after almost 6 years of use. This comment is offered as both feedback to the creators and a warning to potential users.

Just updated my software on my Apple iPhone and now I can’t figure out how to make the Flashlight app be a Flashlight!?All these screen settings and stuff mean nothing: I can’t turn the light on the flashlight. I depended on this as an emergency light source or just a general flashlight when needed. It used to be an easy to access app and I would just press it to turn on the light Now when I press the icon, the screen brightrns but there’s no flashlight. I may go by the Apple Store to see if I am doing something wrong, But what a disappointment. If it’s supposed to work as a flashlight like it used to, I sure don’t know how to do it.
Why did you change it? It used to be so functional?! I have no clue, even when I press on, how to make the light of the Flashlight appear. So now I go to my control center and touch that icon which is not as convenient.

SO Disappointed!


This is the reason I don't like to update apps--someone gets the idea to "make it better", but screws it up instead! I don't need all the cutesy hearts and flowers or strobe lights. I downloaded this app to get the FLASHLIGHT... like the actual name of the app. I've been using this app for several years --it was practically the first app I ever downloaded with my first iPhone--and was very happy with its functionality. I use it mainly to light my path somewhere or to peer into dark recesses like small mailboxes (at night). I like having the safety of having my phone with me in dark areas and being able to see where I'm going, all without the burden of carrying two separate instruments. Puh-leese fix this!!!
