Flashlight is one of those apps that people either love or hate.
Most people who’ve reviewed it on the iTunes store seem to hate it. I love it. Ever lose something in your purse? Ever forget your book light when hurriedly packing for a trip?
This is a great utility app that I find myself launching over and over, and best of all it’s free.
Why we like it:
Use it for a book light if you forget yours! It chews up battery life like crazy, but doesn’t go off until you turn it off. I used it in a hotel room last weekend while my kids slept peacefully beside me. It was so much better than going to sleep at 8:00pm when they did. I’ve also used it to find things in my purse and open the door on my dark porch.
Things I don’t like? Um, red? Blue? Green? And strobe lights? I don’t need ‘em, and I bet you don’t either.
