Runners-Up For All Devices
While we've already made it abundantly clear what app you should go with when looking for a flashlight for your iPhone, there is the possibility that these apps may be removed for whatever reason, leaving you high and dry. Fear not, we have put together a list of some good alternatives for your device, if the our top picks simply aren't available.
*Flashlight - With another rather generic name, *Flashlight is a good alternative for those with the iPhone 3G or 3GS. It offers similar functionality to the myLite flashlight, but isn't quite as fleshed-out in terms of added value features. You'll still get a bright white background and a color swatch chooser, but beyond that there isn't much else to do. Still, for pure flashlight functionality, this one stands up nicely.
iHandy Flashlight Free - The free version of the iHandy Flashlight offers enough solid functionality for 3G and 3GS users to warrant a recommendation. This no-cost edition features bright lighting and some pretty cool alternate effects such as neon glow sticks and flashing strobe modes. It's cool, but it's also ad-supported, which really holds it back from reaching its full potential. The full version features over 50 additional effects and no ads, but it comes with a dollar price tag.
*Flashlight* - We know, it's hard to keep all these generic app names straight, but *Flashlight* (the *s appear as small sun shapes in the app store) is a solid option for iPhone 4 users who can't find Flashlight. for whatever reason. *Flashlight* also features the LED light feature, but not much else beyond that. As the app description states, if you're just looking for a no-cost, no-ad, no-frills flashlight for your iPhone 4, *Flashlight* is a good bet.
