Need a flashlight in a hurry? Get a Flashlight now! This is the free version, there is no difference between this and the paid version.
Flashlight is a very simple, and virtually no-permission application.
Why did I make it?
I needed a flashlight, and I installed a couple, but they needed all weird permissions, like Internet for advertising, or strange data access requirements.
Whats the difference between this one and the 50p one?
There is absolutely no difference whatsoever. Paying the 50p for the paid application helps me spend my time on making better applications.
I concentrate on bringing applications to the market that only make use of the exact permissions needed for the application to perform its task.
What permissions does it need?
This application needs one permission (android.permission.CAMERA). It needs this to have control of the camera flash.
To be honest, I've had enough of these rogue applications asking for strange and un-necessary permissions. This application is very straight forward. Your flash is either on or off.
Please send me an email, I'd love to hear from you with any tips or suggestions on how to make this better. What I won't do is add functionality that adds further permissions to the application.
