Come on, admit it, you use your phone as a flashlight in the dark. But sometimes the iPhone’s backlight just isn’t enough, that’s where Flashlight, the app comes in.
The app is pretty basic, and there are tons of copies in the app store; but this specific flashlight stood out for me mostly because of the nice looking user interface. The app comes with only two functions: basic flashlight, and a flashing light. The flashlight accesses the iPhone 4’s LED located on the back, and streams out a constant beam of light that will surely light any darkness. The flashing light function allows you to pick an interval between 0-9 and will flash the light at different speeds.
Overall, the app is good at what it’s meant to do, lighting things up, and although there are tens of hundreds of copycats in the App Store, this app beats them all with it’s user experience and interface. So go out and buy the app!
