    A simple torch application. Free, with no ads.

    This app controls your device's camera LED to make it act as a torch (flashlight). That's it.

    Tested on:
    * LG Nexus 5 (with Kit Kat 4.4)
    * LG Nexus 4 (with Jelly Bean 4.2.1)
    * Samsung Galaxy Nexus (with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.2)
    * HTC EVO 3D (with Gingerbread 2.3.4)

    Also noted to work on:
    * Samsung Galaxy S II
    * Samsung Galaxy W
    * Samsung Galaxy Note
    * Samsung Galaxy Note II
    * Samsung Nexus S
    * Motorola Droid II
    * HTC Wildfire
    * HTC Droid DNA

    Thanks for all who's let us know if this worked for their device (or not)!

    Note: The additional permission for widget support in 1.1 (SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW) is to work around limitation on some devices' cameras (notably my own Samsung Galaxy Nexus), where a preview surface needs to be present for the camera's LED torch mode to be effective.

    P.S.: The source code is open, hosted on github (

    I don't know how, but this app makes my broken flashlight work perfectly. Other apps (including the OS's "quick setting" tile) take at least two seconds to turn the LED light off, but this turns it off instantaneously.

    The design is both pretty funny and original.
