N9Apps #2: The Flashlight N9 demoed on the Nokia N9

| December 13, 2011 | 10 Replies

I recorded a couple or so apps when I did the first one. I didn’t have time to get around to posting it yesterday so here it is today. Thank you also for the app suggestions in the first one. I will look into them but I cannot guarantee when I can get around to it.

Although Xenon was awesome on the N8, I did miss having LED torch sometimes. Oh you can now check out N9 apps we will personally demo on the tag, “N9Apps“.

#2) The Flashlight N9

Price: Free



Developer Blurb:

It is the best flashlight yet. Featuring a clear and easy user interface, quick and easy to use.

– Bright led light
– Strobo light
– Hold to keep lit
– Light at start up
– SOS Distress
– No ads

I really like this flashlight app. It looks great, and works great and has really useful flashlight related settings.

  • I like how responsive the flashlight button is. Works better than Flashlight 7 on the Lumia 800 (I think using the LED was just a work around on the 800). Press it on, it turns on, press it off, it turns off.
  • It’s nice that it works when multitask. I sometimes find I accidentally leave it on, but on other occasions this means that I can turn the screen off, save battery and glare whilst the screen is locked and LED is on.
  • Neat features such as:
    • hold to keep lit
    • light at start up
    • strobo mode
    • SOS distress
    • and a neat slider to change the strobe frequency.
    • Settings disappear after not touching them.

Although it didn’t do the extras that Flashlight 7 did, it doesn’t need to. All I really wanted was a plain flashlight app that just works, and The Flashlight on the Nokia N9 does that.
