“Lights” is a free application from the Ovi Store for S60 5th edition but it does work best if you’ve got a QWERTY keyboard (i.e. N97 or N97 mini).
The application basically controls the lights on your phone, be it the keyboard lights, the red/green call/end keys, screen light or even the charger light.
You have four options:
- Blink – Red/Green keys flash on and off, as do keyboard and charger lights. Pressing the screen manually makes the lights flash
- Breath – Red/Green keys as well as keyboard lights fade in and out.
- Dream – Random coloured circles appear on the screen quickly and disappear – like a hazy dream I guess. Sometimes the keyboard lights fade in and out, sometimes it’s just the red/green keys.
- Torch – A bright circle appears so you can use the big screen as a torch (prefer the LED option myself – though that 3.5″ screen is bright enough as a modest light source)
Note: you may notice the proximity sensor flashing. It always does that with or without this app – that’s just how it works – but you can’t see it with the naked eye (only via camera).
Here’s a quick demo of “Lights” in action on the Nokia N97.
It’s just another ‘fun’ app – I really like the breathing lights, especially with the keyboard – it’s somewhat quite soothing :).
I’m a huge (odd) fan of LED lights. I’ve found the default breathing menu light most useful on the N97 when trying to find it in the dark (and I obviously can’t find my other phone to call/find it). Though I guess that’s the only use of it, unlike say in the likes of the N900 where the LED light has useful indication notifications.
