What's New in Version 2.1
Thanks for all your feedback and support! This update contains the following improvements and fixes:
☆ Even faster startup time!
☆ In-app purchase to remove ads
☆ New setting to hide the mode selector
☆ Better strobe adjustment responsiveness
This app provides a very useful and efficient light when a true conventional flashlight isn't around to be used. You can adjust the brightness of the light as well as enabling a strobe light function. And even the strobe has a set of options to control the speed it emits the light at (which is rather appreciated when at raves or parties! Quite a nice applicable bonus I think). Overall this is a very easy to use app that comes in handy a lot more than you might anticipate.
As a warning though, leaving the flashlight app on for extended periods of time, especially at full brightness, will definitely eat up your battery power rather quickly. Something I've also pondered is if the light (which comes from the camera flash) is used excessively, over time will it affect the quality of picture taking with the flash enabled? As such, could it eventually burn out the light? Hopefully not. At least not for a long long time and after copious amounts of usage.
But regardless, this is the first and only flashlight app that I've downloaded out of the dozens more on the App Store because it serves the purpose I need it for very well leaving me no reason to try any of the others.
I definitely would recommend this 🔦 app to any of those looking for the bright side.
5 out of 5 🌟
By far the best flashlight app
I've tried them all. This flashlight app is by the far the best. It has a simple, but well laid out interface with super clean retina graphics for the buttons. The graphics are dark in color and have a nice TRONesque glowing aesthetic to them. The nice clean home screen icon resembles an IronMan ARC Reactor against a black background, not an awkward tiny, ugly picture of the iPhone's back LED. A short and direct title "Light" takes up very little space ob the home screen. The settings menu is super easy to locate/navigate, and looks very similar to the new Windows Metro menu. This may be coincidental but is due to the font, color and icon choices. An optional, single charge of 99 cents will remove ads preserving the Apps wonderful interface. I also felt compelled to pay for the upgrade to support a developer who has obviously done such a good job.
This is a very focused, well designed application. It keeps a simple function simple and beautiful while its at it.
Simple, Reliable and Effective
I personally don't require a whole lot of bells and whistles when it comes to a flashlight app. I just want it to work every time I need it, which is at least every night, and not have ads placed in seemingly every spot I touch if I'm not looking directly at the touch controls thus taking me on an unrequested trip to the App Store or some shady website. Simple needs it would seem, but out of 6-7 flashlight apps I've used in 5 years this is the only one that doesn't fall short in any area. This light doesn't dim itself if I've failed to touch it for 20 seconds, or turn off because of some reason unknown, or do anything but work when I need it to. On. Off. Allow me to dim the light on my own with no mind of its own. I can easily put a check mark next to each aforementioned need. Can't ask for more.
