    "The flashlight LED light is a great app and a very helpful one. If you find yourself in a predicament where you need a flashlight and didn't have one and then you remember your phone. It can definitely help you get out of uncertain situations or just help find that leak under the sink."

    "This was nice of them to create. At first I really wondered, what is even the point of this App. but then I realized it was an intelligent app. to create, it's purpose is to help and to make you proactive. You never know what can happen out there. I'm an east coast gal going through some of those tough winter times now, and better to be prepared than be sorry, because you've reacted too late. This app. took a lot of effort thanks to the developers, and I am more knowledgeable now. "
