How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

  • Change the color of the screen's light

Product Description

How many times have you found the need for some illumination when you're out and about with your Android smartphone in hand instead of a true flashlight? Resorting to the milky light of your phone's home screen is usually just not enough. Avoiding such situations in the future is easy with the Free Flashlight app installed on your Android.

The app amplifies your phone's screen-lighting ability to its highest possible brightness! If this is too bright, just swipe down on the screen to dim the intensity for a softer, more gentle glow. You can also alter the quality of the light by choosing from blue, red, green and purple tones. Also, because you are using your screen, Free Flashlight will not drain your battery as quickly as using flashlight apps that tap into your phone's LED camera lights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does not drain battery August 6, 2012
This is the best flashlight app that I have come across. The best in the category it does not drain my Android battery. Since it uses the screen, the apps is a true boon for users who are worried about battery life. The flashlight allows me to choose from blue, green, purple and white tones. I like the pure white light better than others. The light is of high intensity and helps me move around in the dark without tripping. It is the most simplified flashlight I have ever come across.

Though I have tried quite a few flashlight apps available in the market I did not find anything as effective as this one. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

It wouldn't turn on or off when I wanted it to. I had to repetitiously tap the screen and it didn't change colors like it said it would.

5.0 out of 5 stars works as advertised December 5, 2011

This app turns on the display with full-intensity white. Works fine as a flashlight for finding or avoiding things nearby.

Its free, it works. Everyone happy, despite the wee advert.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful in a Pinch November 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
I am currently in Ukraine and went on a road trip last weekend. The intercity roads do not have street lights and unfortunately an errant pothole caused a tire to go flat. As it swiftly became dark as pitch on the side of the road, I used the flashlight app so my host mom could see as she changed the tire. Pro: I was grateful to have the app in an uncomfortable situation as it performed exceptionally. Con:The light drained the battery on my Kindle Fire HD swiftly and therefore proved that it cannot be relied upon in an extended emergency situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars simple but useful
This is a very simple app. All it does is to make a bright screen (default is white but you can choose other colors as well) that can be used as a flash light or torch. Read more
