Now that we have Smartphones in our pockets, they ought to do something more than just ringing another phone. Similar to PC, they have many accessories and related functions which are very useful in our daily lives. One of them functions is that of a calculator. Although a calculator is now available in most of the simple phones as well, but there are some added extra features that make it more useful in Smartphones. One more such basic function is that of a torch or flashlight. While I’ve seen many entry level phones from Nokia with an in-built torch, the same purpose is being held in a Smartphone with the use of the Camera Flash. The purpose is same; the function is same with some extra features. But you need to install an app for using your camera flash as a torch. One such app we have for today. Let’s check it out.
I am talking about the new Android app called OXON F.Light Pro that has been developed by OXSIONSOFT. The app is compatible with all the devices running Android 2.2 or later version of the OS and is available in the Tools category in the Android Play Store.
The app is very simple to use and operate. As soon as you install the app and open it up, you see a sign similar to the power button of a laptop. As you tap on it, the flash lightens up and stays there until you tap the button again. There is a pattern drawn above and below the symbol. If you move that symbol up, the flash starts flickering with high intensity and if you move the symbol down the middle point, the intensity goes down and the flash light flickers slowly. This flickering of flashlight can be used as a signal and is a very good addition to the features list.
Just tap at the bottom of the screen and the menu opens with different options. You can switch the theme of the app between light and dark and you can also activate the auto option so that the flashlight starts as you open the app. You can also select whether you want the flashlight on or off in the in the sleep mode. Overall, the app has a very good value and fulfils its purpose very smoothly. You want such kind of app to be simple and without any complex mechanisms as far as possible.
The app is available for $1.25 in the App Store. However, there is a free version is available as well with some of the premium features not available. I won’t say this app to be very distinct from others because there is not much scope to change, but still the flickering option is a good advantage over others. Rest is yours to decide.
Pros: simple to use; flickering intensity controller; free version available.
