Switch the led light of the camera on and off from the lock screen using the power button.
I realize that there are many flashlight applications in the play store. But none had the one feature I wanted the most. This was being able to switch the led light of the camera on and off from the lock screen using the power button. So Power Torch was created!
* Switch on/off the camera flash from the lock screen using the power button
* Switch on/off the camera flash from the settings
* Shows a notification when the torch is burning
* Turn torch off using the notification
* Contains a widget that can be used to toggle the torch
* Has haptic feedback when toggling the torch, option that can be configured
* Torch can go out after timeout, default after 2 minutes, setting can be changed
* Background services have been written so they don’t use extra battery
* Material design
* No Ads
How to use:
* In the lock screen, long press the power button to toggle the flashlight.
* Blacklist this application from the task killer (if you use any)
* There is NO internet permission, so this application can not leak any personal information!
* CAMERA: to toggle the torch
* WAKE_LOCK: to keep the torch burning, even when the screen is off
* VIBRATE: to do a small vibration when the torch is toggled
* RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: to be able to start the service that detects the power press when the device starts
Version 3.2.1 (2018/10/27)
+ Second long press power button when logged in now toggles the torch
* Safeguard application active is now faster
This application depends on API’s that are depreciated since
android 8.0. The play store might not allow newer updates
of this application for this reason. Unless some rules are
relaxed, this might be the last update we can provide for
