Interesting functionality, simple interface, minimalist design
Old fashioned design, kills your battery
Tiny Flashlight has been around for a while. The concept is simple - why not use your phone's LED flash as a flashlight? Great idea and is helpful in darkened movie theaters or even parking lots. I hate fumbling with my keys in the dark when I get home late, and my cell phone is always in my hands anyway, so it all kind of makes sense.
Tiny Flashlight is very compact, so it runs fast and smooth. It has very simple controls and lots of different choices and customization. The strobe light option was neat and actually works pretty well, though it doesn't quite reach rave party status. The old-school style light bulb was cool and I like that you can change the color of the bulb to anything you want. The Police lights are neat; flashing alternating red and blue. The flashing Caution lights could be useful if your car breaks down and you need roadside assistance. All the light effects are actually quite bring and can be fully customized to your liking.
ResumeTiny Flashlight is one of those must-have apps for every phone or tablet. I find myself using it all the time for all sorts of things. Great app and very helpful.
