It's ok I paid nothing so I have no complaints. But if the programmer wants feed back then the fact it didn't shine straight away when I opened it would have to be it.

Ad instead of a light when U need one? Changing my original review: Requires no special permissions, all good... While testing it, there are ads at the bottom near the button, inconveniently, but its free, so... But when I actually needed to use it for the first time, I get a BLACK THEMED clock instead of a light, and worse, I click it hoping for an option & realize it's a giant ad taking up the "flashlight screen". What good is that when you rly need a light? That's just... THE MOST annoying thing! In the dark, in a hurry... Anyway, I pass.

I Hate This Way too many ads, you can't turn it off/on without an ad popping up. And it kills your battery very quickly. Fix these problems, and maybe it would be worth the storage space it take a up on my phone, causing me to download apps that I do not want. The app usually downloads random things, and I'm not sure if it's just for me or not, but I completely disagree with anyone who says this app works.

Wow Wow thats really great im only ten years old sooo its pitch black in my house at night i have a bathroom in my room but I want to go in the other other one because I feel comfortable so when I switch on the bathroom light I feel better I went through the app store a million times when I saw it it caught my eye I got it it works great now I dont have to worry now about darkness in my house!!it didn't even cost me a dime for this wonderful app .

Alvin Isaacson

It great The lite is bright but the advertisement of other apps is quiet exasperating

The camo man

I love it it is very bright and my little sister is scared of the dark so when I turned this app on she loved it.

Anita Landreth

Front flashlight This app works great for those who carry their phone in a purse case. Don't have to remove from case because screen only is light, not camera flash.

Tushar Kapila

Too many ads for a Simple app Ads. Keeps asking you to rate it. Too much for a real simple app. In installing. Found free and non obstrusive replacement

Lili Anderson

It's great. It works. My one and only problem is that the ad banners will sometimes flash different colors, so it makes the white flashlight light grey or something. Besides that, I love it.

Abrielle Moreno

Cool app Bright lights help when lights go off

Rachel Gill

Screen torch Due to phn not having a flash I had to get a screen torch. Does what says on the tin and has some nice features. All in all its a nice little app, and isn't overly draining on the battery

John tolliver

Helps at hard times When can't find things I need


Digital alarm clock is a plus! The flashlight really helps but I'm loving the digital alarm clock (separate app download) more!

Brian B

Diggin it. Simple, effective, and reliable. Ads yes, no big deal, it's free and didn't require all kinds of ridiculous permissions. Performs well, only suggestion is to turn on w one touch. Peace

Nashiba Saripada-Magarang

nice for smartphone w/o led Except for the ads which take up the whole screen sometimes.

Amanda Young

Love it! In response to Ashley Cano... this one is for phones and tablets that DON'T have a camera flash, therefore the super bright led flashlight wouldn't work. As for myself... I love the lit up screen!!! I used to find a bright web page to serve the same purpose. I use it as a night light without having to hold my phone and shine in sleeping eyes... it's bright enough to use to see, but not overly bright as to disturb others. Thank you!

Gracita Banks

Super romantic This light I place in the corner on the table to watch the romatic movies. Also good in the sleepingroom.

Merrianne Mcdowell

Love it! My Screen Flashlight is perfect for what I need. I set it up on my nightstand and I get just enough light to read my books without waking my husband. I am a night owl. He is an early bird. For me it's perfect. You wouldn't be able to use it to hike through the woods, but seriously who's going to use their tablet for that? I am planning to put this app on my children's tablets for them to use as nightlights since I had mine on for hours and my tablet was cool as a cucumber.

Chuck Lee

No flash on HTC one For not having a camera flash to utilize, this app works quite well and uses practically no memory. That's the most important thing because after factory installed apps and programs, of which almost none can be moved to the sd cart, the phones total memory is all but filled. Easy to use and plenty of features. Excellent, helpful, well someone

michael horton

For kit kat 4.4.4 android phone You all bitched about the ads well when you use this app turn on airplane mode then you don't get the ads .

Dawn Mullins

I just downloaded it and I love it now I want to be able to make the clock part of the app my wallpaper that I really really really want ! Check it out tho fir real

Genesis Ashby

Its a great app and it shines brightly like a flashlight is supposed to so, there should be no comments saying it needs work. What a random person likes a sport and they were waching you play that sport, then after the game that person said that you were terrible...How would you feel...

William Brown

Adds and more adds When you need a flashlight, you need a flashlight, not a bunch of adds. Way to painful for use.

kabi raquino

It does what it said it will without anything else. Great app

Greg Brady

A great alternative for those mobile phones without LED flashlight hardware

James Simpson

It's a light -why the clock? A simple but effective light panel. I find the requests to download the clock annoying as nearly every phone already has one.

Martha Phelps

Works Well... I got a new phone and this is as close as I could get to my old flash light app... Don't care for the ads, but it works for what I need it to do... :-)

Mark Mcintosh

Not only is this good to use as a torch. I've found it very hand as a light board for my art work

naftali senderovich

This app saved me once Going down the stairs at my work when all the light bulbs explode bcause of a power surge, this app made it possible to reach my destination without falling in a pitch dark stair room.

James Moon

Just right for night reading The Screen light is perfect for reading the kids to sleep. Not too bright.

Vernon Davenport

A+ Best alarm clock ever had for a phone

Morgan Sing

Great app. Great App. It is a handy app especially when there is no electricity. It is reasonably bright. Over all a good app in my opinion because it serves it purpose.

Lewis Williams

Great application if your camera doesn't have led light five stars! !!

Laura Summers

The ads that constantly blink at the bottom of the screen make it more like a strobe light. I know it was free and I don't mind ads however when they blink different colors it hurts my eyes. I will be uninstalliing and trying a different app.

Charlie Moore

Awesome My phone doesnt have a built in light so screen flashlight this good is awesome app

Jo Poochie

Nice light I was even more pleased when I saw the clock!

Gerald Koellermeier

Not as bright as I would have liked

Oliver Spurway

Good I personaly would give this particular app four stars as above. This is because it can be turned on and off. Also the range of the beam at maximum is 2 metres 16 center mitres. This app is a thumbs up and I would reccomend to friends and family. Yours Sincerely Oliver.

Patricia Davidson

Ive had better It is that bright and ads keep popping up

angela lacroix

This flash light sucks! It turns off on me and doesn't last long enough to be useful at all and uses the screen not the camera light and not bright enough, personally I don't think it should get any rating but it needs at least 1 star to register as rating.

danitza miranda

Flash light by google play Wonderful app technology has gone far and beyond the limits of having useful gadgets to improve lifes daily activities. Thank you man kind for inventing things like this.

Jessica Crichlow

The only thing I don't like is that the ads flash, which is quite annoying when I am using the ap to read in bed.

Ricard Buchholz

Flashlight I like it because it comes on the main screen and it doesn't go through the camera like it's very bright and simple and I think lot of people will like it because it has the clock on it digital clock and it can set alarm clocks if you go regular black or military clock I think of other people would enjoy it would be nice if you would play a little bit of music some smoothing music to put you to sleep and I think you guys can improve it a little more thank you and have a great day

Tevydone Odare

Hate ADVERTS are for what??? You want us to install everythng?? That is the only reason why am removing it. Nkt

Emmett Burks

Screen Flashlight is perfect for night reading and checking on things at night like the children and because its not super bright it doesn't frighten the children or our pets. I think it's a great invention.

Abimbola Olayinka

Best of all This is the best flashlight ever, it is so bright and really good for night reading, it also help me not to get distracted because while the flashlight is on my screen I cannot use it for any other thing. Hence, I get more focus on my books than my device. Kudos Squarenotch. Nice job!

Erica E

Loved it until I tried it Ok no special permissions is awesome! So I downloaded it and was totally disappointed. Not bright at all :( removed


Ok at best 15 percent of the screen is covered and there is a full page popup ad along with thebottom ad. Just make a white image and make that your flashlight.

Helena Draeger

Shake Flashlight When I leave work after dark, I shake my cellphone so the light comes on and I don't slip on the ice. Love it!

Amber Watson

Actually Works..!! Since my phone isn't compatible with the led flashlight app it's great to still have an option to use a light app that works with me and my phone..

natalie200588 yay

Really works I installed the app and I closed the lights and got on the app,it worked it shined bright.?totaly 5 stars???

Shobhs Sanman

Awesome Just what I needed... I hv a cell which doesn't have flash.... So this is just what I needed.... Thanks

John Manu

Julie Woods

Fionnghuala McKiernan

Andruw Townes

Sucks Its the same thing as turning your brightness all the way up:(

Madison Berry

Awesome I got this phone for chtistmas and it did not have a flashlight this is quick and easy to download and i really like it this needs to have five stars that's what i give is

A Google User

M. Villalobos Too many ads and the light isn't full screen. The screen has graphics that reduce the brightness.

KIM Gonzalez

Awesome sauce Performed as required. What more could I ask for?

Tad Schaeffer

Worx It works as advertised, but It could use a dimmer allowing for maximum brightness or jus enough light to b discrete.

Brenna Prior12

I did NOT like this app The brightness sucked. I used it and I couldn't find what I needed. I wouldn't download this app. ? I recommend using the Bright LED Flashlight app. Its free and its BRIGHT?☀

tank 2

Love the flashlight, Hate the popup ads Flashlight is nice, but WAY too many ads.

Abigail Angel

I wish Great but the light isn't that bright its a great app but it needs to be brighter I don't have flash so this was perfect for me but please work on that and also edit the adds out I hate them especially when I actually need a flashlight

Gerold Russello

Played a loud video ad This bloody thing woke my family up in the middle of the night. It started blasting a loud advertisment. Horrible

Brittany Bowden

Good if you don't have a camera, but normal screen brightness. Not what I was looking for

Patricia Smith

I like it. I only had to use it once, buy it served its purpose!!

Michelle Monroy

Love it Works good when I take out the trash at night

lee hall

Flash light on screen I had. This before its great

Elisha Kay

Its not even light enough don't know why people is using this its so rubbish

shernette henry

It's great Love how it's just lights up an area, this could use a button to help it get a little brighter. But it is really good recommend this app. :-)

Jeff Bebe

It lights up I never have a problem with the app whenever I need the light is there when I need it

Thomas Hinton

Works fine. I use it frequently. Keep it on my home page.

Harley Imvu

Im doing late night reading also, so yeah I hope it works :)

Sophie Wareham

It isnt bright it's like the normal screen brightness.if you want the app don't get it

Anthony Hamilton

I used to love it Until this last update. .now I dnt like it ...btw to the developers next time if it's not broken then please dnt fix it. Because I used to think this flashlight was excellent. ..but since the update today it a big disappointment. ..

mi casa

Too many ads Useful but loaded with ads. Uninstalling app.

Marvin Perry

Flash light I like the way it is easy to use.

Nissa Venton

bright enough I needed a torch to read in bed without disturbing my partner. I found it quite bright better than ones I have used before.

faizan akey

It's an OK. The ads keep popping after certain seconds. I need to tap my screen to get rid of them everytime. But still ok. Bright enough for me.

Helen McKnight

Easy to install bright enough to see at's a good thi g

MC 19DaSo20

Liked it The only flashlight app I found that does not need access to my camera, location, pictures/media files, or contacts. Like, why would a flashlight app need all those things so that it could work?

vijay kumar joshi

Simply awesome!! Using since 1 year... Great n useful app


Ad app. Oh yes some bit of torch also. The name is space flashlight a space before the name to stay at the top of menu.

pedro morais

Perfect for htc one m8 It works with low battery!!!!

Keira LuvzCali

It's okay. I think this is a pretty well made app. Although it has a lot of adds and I want a LED flashlight! The reason I can't get LED is because I use a Ipod and led doesn't work for that. It's not your fault that I can't get an led flashlight but I'm just saying. It is a bit slow and adds pop up like every minute!


Works perfectly Works as well as a screen flashlight would be able to. I don't mind the ads because they keep it free.

Andreja S.V.

Has adds. Otherwise a good app. It would be even better if the entire screen turned white...

Razzy TV

Loved it I really enjot the app and really helps during the night as I am scared of the dark

jimmy younger

Love it I've been looking for a flashlight app for so long but my phone doesn't have a plugin

Michelle W

Works good if the bulb for your camera goes out like mine did!

Piyush Kedia

Just bcoz cant give 0 stars ... It actually changes the brightness to max

Gary Thinks

Does what it says it will do Surprisingly bright in comparison to other similar apps.

Annette Alder

Helpful Good in the last power outage.

Lila Jessop

So good!! I needed to find my eye plugs at night, so I could listen to music, but I lost them when I was sleeping. I found them with this amazing flash light download if you need some light at night.

J Cube

Good if your phone doesn't have a built-in flashlight If your phone doesn't have a flashlight on the back of it, I guess this would be good. But it's useless if your phone has a back flashlight.

Stacey Longmire

Not Too Bright It's a simple flashlight that uses the screen to light the way. This can be used when you don't need a really bright light, but just some light to see by.

Laura Morris

Light Loving it. Just started so no ads yet but perfect for tip toeing thru the house. And small too. Thnx

Brenna Prior12

I did NOT like this app The brightness sucked. I used it and I couldn't find what I needed. I wouldn't download this app. ? I recommend using the Bright LED Flashlight app. Its free and its BRIGHT?☀

Billy Newman

I like it. Problem is it came up so many. Times asking for a rating that it was very annoying

Owen Cote

Eh No difference just turn your screen brightness up on my phone there is literally no difference between my phone brightness and this app

Ebohon Orhue

Useless My normal screen brighter than this useless app. I wasted my data for nothing.

Teresa Collinsworth

Used Flashlight app only a couple of times when I received a pop up notice that it no longer was working without explanation of why.

G Cadogan

Buttons block some of the light It's not as bright as it could be. Buttons get in the way.

gracie samsoondar

Lazy I was just to lazy to get up and put on my light in my room☺

Natalie yay

Really works I installed the app and I closed the lights and got on the app,it worked it shined bright.?totaly 5 stars???

Ingrid Moralez

Looked good but its not This is horrible

flowers 2374

Veary good It isn't too bright like some of the other flashlights i used to have

Shawn Huntarvo

Terrible To many ads and takes up to much battery I was on 100 and five minutes later I'm on 88!?!?

Marcos Perez
