The time when you need torches the most is when they’re hardest to get to – in a black out (or brown out as they oddly call it in the Philippines). And looking for a torch is only useful if you actually own one to start with. No point trying to find the torch to check what’s rolled under your bed/sofa if you haven’t even got a torch.
Here’s a FREE application that allows Nokia 5800 owners to use the white and red LED flash as a torch.
It has a simple start/stop, switch colour mode and even the ability to convert your text into morse code flash! How brilliant is that? But now all you need is for someone else to be able to understand morse code (although it maybe useful in certain emergency situations where a flashing light maybe the only way to contact for help…such as attracting a boat if you’re desserted on an island, because that’s very likely to happen)
Please be aware that you install this at your own risk. Also there are two installation methods for signed and unsigned.
You can view these instructions and download the application from http://dev.meh.at/.
Make sure though that you download the most recent version to get the latest features.
Now if only we can return to the intuitiveness of the likes of the N93’s dedicated flash/torch button.
