Color Flashlight HD
This is an updated version of the popular Color Flashlight app and it’s a good option. The main screen offers you a simple switch to turn the LED flash on or off and at the top left you have an icon that lets you turn your screen on or off (it goes bright white if you turn it on).
The icon at the top right gives you access to a big menu of options. There’s a simple slider for brightness control that you can add to the bottom of the screen. There’s also an interesting range of options including flash and color effects, the ability to set emergency lights, the ability to set static, scrolling, blinking or slideshow text and some daft fun options. The fact you can set the color, brightness and speed of a flashing light is great.
The additional options are like animated wallpapers with moving elements and various colors. There’s a candle effect, some moving blobs, a spiral, a random color flash, a disco ball and an animated screen that says “I Love You" on it.
This free app is also ad supported and the adverts are a little more annoying -- they appear at the top right next to the controls so it’s more likely you’ll accidentally tap on them. On the other hand this app only takes up 1.3 MB and, even better, you can move it to your SD card. It’s a shame there are no widget options.
