Pure Flashlight Widget | APK Download For Android

Pure and simple flashlight widget. It toggles the camera flash LED. Not asking for any weird permissions, no slow opening app, just a very simple and good looking toggle button! Multiple styles available and also a launcher shortcut (looks like an app icon) are also possible. Again, there is no application, it’s only a widget, so you will find it in the Widget’s drawer! πŸ™‚

Camera access permission is required to open the flash in torch mode.
Wake lock permission is used to keep the screen on (dimmed) and CPU on (thus camera flash on) when the screen shuts. Some phones as HTC’s completely shuts the camera hardware when phone is put to sleep so it might still not work for everyone.

Warning!! Be careful when using “Quick mode” as the widget might stop working (not turn on or off) on some devices like the Nexus 5. In this case you’ll need to remove and readd the widget and leave Quick Mode off.

I couldn’t test on many devices since I only have a Nexus 4, so if you encounter a bug please be nice and tell me and I’ll do my best to fix it. I’m a busy man πŸ™‚

Button to donate inside the app if you wish to support me πŸ™‚

What’s New

– Toggle for vibration feedback (user request)

Sorry for people experiencing random turn-offs, still haven’t found a fix πŸ™ Busy year for me, thank you for your patience πŸ™‚
