Turn on your flashlight right from the lock screen

  • Nice idea in concept
  • Didn't work well for me
  • Have to download two apps rather than one

"Shake to light up the night"

TF: Fast Light works in conjunction with the Tiny Flashlight app, which is one of the few flashlight apps I actually trust (I saw the dev talking it up on Reddit, which makes him seem way more like a real person rather than an evil Appster attempting to bombard me with weird permissions).

The idea is to enable access to the flashlight function through the lockscreen, either by shaking your device, using voice commands, or persistent notifications. It's a great idea, so that you don't have to go fumbling around in the dark to make your flashlight app work.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get the app to work right on my device (Nexus 5). I consistently got an error that stated that the light was already in use - which doesn't make sense, given that I was coming form the lock screen.

I also don't care for having to download two apps that work together instead of just one package.
