    "It doesn't look like Torch is available anymore on the Play Store, which makes sense because it has largely been replaced by built-in flashlight controls on notifications panel. But when this was not a built in feature for Android, Torch was great for illuminating dark bedrooms or sneaking down the hall for a midnight snack."

    "I've found this app very useful and an excellent flashlight app, overall. I'm always forgetting to close down applications when I'm done using them so it's been quite handy. I also liked how I could choose my own theme as I wasn't expecting such an app to have that feature!"

    "I decided to give Flashlight: LED Light a chance when we went out camping last Friday and I was looking for a decent flashlight app. It does exactly what you would expect it to do, had no problems with it. Took me a while to figure out how it works, but it's a very smooth ride from then on."

Did You Know?

With the technology being more advanced as days passed, phones, laptops, and computers are now part of our daily lives. People develop apps and software to make our tasks easier. However, many apps and software are also being developed to spy on people that use it. It collects your personal information like your name, address, passwords, and credit card details. A lot of other apps also browse through your personal contacts and take photos and videos.

And recently, emails are making its rounds, stating that the flashlight app on their phones is spying them and their activities. They steal your personal information and sends it to China and Russia. According to a report, some flashlight apps are quite demanding as regards permissions. Some of these ask for your permission. They ask to read the phone status, take pictures and videos, view internet connections and full network access. This alarmed and worried a lot of users about their security especially Android users. IPhone users are more relaxed because it has a built-in flashlight. And choosing the best flashlight app for iPhones would not affect their security. Reports say that since Android app permissions do not give you control on what the apps can do after you installed it. And because of this, Android users are more prone to this information stealing incident.

    "A very good app of its kind but advertised with a bit of deception. The Super-Bright name with its illustration will likely lead people to think that if they install the app, their phone would be capable of emitting a super bright light. While, in fact, the maximum brightness of a phone's light rests on its hardware capability and is almost impossible to alter with a software. "

    "My ninja light I know I can use it anytime and works great! Came in handy during road side emergencies and even coming home and someone forgot to turn on the outside light. It does use more battery then I like however in varying instances, it can be worth it. I only use it when absolutely needed (and the occasional down at the ocean looking for night time fishys) I recommend to have it cause ya just never know when it's needed :) "
