Never underestimate the usefulness of a good flashlight app on your mobile device. It can save you time, for example, when you need to quickly locate an item in the dark and the only illumination you have in hand is the backlight of your smarphone. Here are six awesome flashlight apps you can download for free from the Google Play store.
Super-Bright LED Flashlight
Super-Bright LED Flashlight leverages your Android smartphone camera’s LED flash to produce an intense burst of light. You can easily switch the flashlight on and off, as well as control its strobe or blinking frequency depending on your needs. Super-Bright LED Flashlight comes with stunning interface graphics and control buttons for your smartphone’s touchscreen display.
Like Super-Bright LED Flashlight, the free Tiny Flashlight app uses your mobile device’s camera LED as a light source and has an adjustable strobe/blinking capability. It also comes with an ingenious text-to-Morse-code functionality and simple controls for adjusting the light’s intensity. The app’s developer touts Tiny Flashlight’s low battery power consumption and ability to use the screen light instead of the LED if you need to save energy.
Turn your Android device into a survival tool by equipping it with High-Powered Flashlight. This free app comes with easy-to-use touchscreen controls, a strobe feature in multiple frequencies, an SOS signal, and a compass.
Color Flashlight’s capabilities go far beyond what a basic flashlight app can do. Using either your smartphone’s screen light or camera LED, the free Color Flashlight app makes your phone produce light that simulates police lights, a disco lighting fixture, the rainbow effect, and romantic candlelight. You can even use your phone as a silent SOS beacon by displaying the word “help” boldly illuminated in the dark.
Brightest Flashlight is a basic, relatively lightweight, and high-performing flashlight app for your Android device. It uses all the available light sources on your mobile device to produce bright light. Expect the app to use your keyboard’s backlight, camera flash LED, and display screen.
Flashlight HD LED
Flashlight HD LED is a fantastic alternative to a basic flashlight app like Brightest Flashlight. This free app is simple, easy to operate, and launches after tapping a single button on your touchscreen display. Its user interface is well designed. There’s a widget that enables quick access to the app when you need it. So, there will be no more fumbling in the dark with Flashlight HD LED at your fingertips.
