Flashlight - John Haney

Flashlight iPhone App Review.

Perhaps one of the simplest of iphone apps to come out of Appstore is John Haney's Flashlight, which made it on Apple's list of Top Apps of All Time. Flashlight is a free iphone app designed to ease your way in the darkness by filling the device's screen with a full color. Several colors are included, ranging from white, red, green, black or blue. The app options also includes a RGB (Red Green Blue) color mixer to help you choose your favorite color by mixing the three basic colors. You can easily switch between the colors by flicking the iphone screen on to the next available color.

Additionally, the app features a strobe light mode, with pretty limited configuration options like Emergency, Trippy and Deep Trippy. John Haney promises the next application update will bring more control over screens, effects and also the annoyingly simple strobe light and its precise tuning.

Even though you could get the same brightness by simply maxing it out on your iphone and opening up Mail or Safari, Flashlight still ranks pretty high in user preferences for top iphone apps of all time. Perhaps the new SDK and the thousands of new APIs that Apple promised to release this summer will provide developers with more options in creating apps that turn out to be more configurable than Flashlight.

3 Bites to “Flashlight sheds light on the Appstore”

  1. This is
    so interested! Where can I find more like this?

  2. BadaBing! says:

    My fav is Smart Light cos it uses the proximity sensor to toggle the light on and off when you cover or uncover the face of the phone just like it does when you put it up to your face in a call. Worth the 99c they ask
