Great when I travel with my toddler


I put this app on my iPad mainly for the times our family travels. Both our parents’ houses are very dark at night, and my husband or I end up having to share a very dark bed/room with our toddler who isn’t quite old enough to be okay sleeping by herself in a strange bed at grandma’s house or at a hotel. It’s so nice to have this app. It’s bright enough that you can see where You are going without stubbing toes or banging a shin and quietly get stuff from your suitcase in the room while she’s sleeping without waking her up, but it’s dim enough that You can point it right at her check to on her while she’s asleep without disturbing her.

Screen llight

I wish the screen would stay dim while the light is lit or at least not as bright. Who's ever need a light shining in their face while they were using a flashlight. It doesn't make much sense. Other than that it's a great flashlight. As good as any I've had on a phone. Very bright!

Developer Response

We thought a bright flashlight is always what you want! ;)
If the screen light is too bright you're still able to dim down the screen via the control center.

Pretty good, but...

This works really well, but one thing I would like to add is the ability to disable the double-tap feature. I’m using this app to animate on paper, and I use the light to see the last 2-3 frames; but as I’m drawing the next one it tends to turn off, which can get a little annoying.

Developer Response

Hello, great to see our app in such a variety of use cases.
You can also use the "light graffiti" mode in your case. This mode disables the double tap feature. You will permanently see the app bars, but we think the light produced is still enough (especially on an iPad).
