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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I use it all the time! January 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
I already had this app on my Droid and use it all the time for reading to my son at night and for moving across the dark bedroom where my daughter is sleeping. The cool effects are also fun. So glad to find that this app works just as well on my Kindle Fire! Especially love being able to adjust the brightness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the Job March 22, 2011
The only thing I missed about my old phone was the LED flashlight function. My Samsung Captivate does not have an LED light. Color Flashlight solved this problem. It works well. The only downside is that its easy to accidentally activate the options menu. This is a minor issue and it serves my needs just fine. I strongly recommend it for those that need to use their smartphones as a flashlight in emergencies.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit glitchy on my Kindle Fire, but the basics work. November 19, 2011

Colors and flashing works great, but text only works in one direction (landscape), and weirdly, extremely left justified. Flame is nonfunctional -- image is pinned to the right side of the screen such that it's half hidden and doesn't rotate (portrait only) .

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool February 10, 2013

It's exactly what it says it is -- it's an app that turns your Kindle into a color flashlight. The slider makes it easy to get any color you want. But what really makes it handy are the effects, such as the text scroller and the strobe. You can control the rate everything scrolls/strobes/flashes, a nice touch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deleted this App May 21, 2014

The light is bright and all one needs in a flashlight; however, it makes this weird high-pitched noise whenever the app is started that scares my dog, so I deleted it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good flashlight April 25, 2014
Verified Purchase
I love that I can use the flash on my camera as a flashlight if needed. The effect the screen flashlight have are ok. I only use either the white screen, or the camera light as the flashlight. There is a candle as one of the effects, I guess it could be used for a cheesy candle light dinner, or corny romance in the bedroom, I trued it, my wife laughed at me. lol. Good app. if I lost my phone, or this app, I'd definitely download it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best flashlight app! April 21, 2014
Verified Purchase
After having other flashlight apps this is by far the best one because of the various colors available and the emergency blinking and help light. I have it installed on all of my phones and tablets.
