Power-Button to Turn on Flash: Remember your old cheap mobile phone without a camera, but having a flashlight built in? Remember how you could switch it on/off with a click of the power button or the call-end button? This app provides some of that old convenience. Turn your mobile's display on and then off with the power button (or off and then on) to switch the camera flash on/off. It has the option to vibrate when switching, the option to switch off the flash after a minute, and to keep itself persistent in the memory using a sticky Notification. [The options in the free version are limited. But, the default configuration works well enough in my experience.]
ClickLight provides the fastest way to turn on your device's bright LED flashlight. There's no need to unlock the phone, open an app, or find a widget. Simply double click the power button at any time to toggle the light on or off. Please make sure the double click actually turns the screen from off to on, then back to off (or vice versa). Of course, the flashlight may also be toggled from a widget, from an optional notification, or from inside the app.
Please exclude CL from any task killers / memory cleaners! If you experience an issue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the contact menu option from the app before leaving a negative review!
• Except while in-call: choose this if you have problems with the light coming on during calls due to the screen turning on and off quickly.
• Keep in memory: shows a notification to make the service less likely to randomly kill the service. You may also toggle the light from the notification!
The premium unlock allows you to access all locked options on all of your devices, forever. The camera permission is required to access your device's flashlight.
• You are double clicking the power button too quickly, it is not causing the screen to turn from off to on and back to off (or from on to off and back to on).
• The time interval you have selected is too short. Your device's screen cannot physically turn on and off that quickly. The speed at which your screen can cycle may depend on what app is on your screen at the time!
