Imagine for a second the perfect flashlight app1 for your smartphone. What features would it include? What would the instructions look like? Here’s how you’d use my dream app:
- Launch the app.
That’s it. To turn the light off, simply hit the physical home button to exit the app. Power buttons within the app itself duplicate existing functionality and only serve to slow you down.
Updated 5/30: There’s some confusion about the term “flashlight app.” It’s a program that lights up the camera flash LED and keeps it on, turning the device into a flashlight of sorts. ↩
Unfortunately, Quick™ Light is no longer available on the App Store. Please let me know if you find a replacement: no ads, no interactive UI, just light. ↩
