    Doesn't send all your info to the owners to sell on. Only accesses permissions it actually needs!!

    Does what it says on the tin, a simple torch app with no ads and no using info it doesn't need (some other torch apps require access to your personal contacts!) Highly recommended!

    Great app. Does exactly what you need. One touch activates the led light, one touch stops it. No unnecessary permissions needed (ie network access) just the camera. Thank you for this lovely little app.
