Android L Torch review

What is Android L Torch

This very simple application is a torch app that is themed in the style of Android L. With Android L being all the rage right now, it makes sense that someone would do a torch app in that style so people can feel and see the theme. It features a few themes and after a rocky start, seems to be working better.

Okay so here’s how the app works. You open the application and it’ll begin scrolling a colorful background image. When the torch is one the scrolling background shows daylight and when it’s off the background changes to night. It looks very slick and seems to work well enough. The free version is ad supported and you can change the background if you prefer.

The paid version removes the advertisements and adds a few more backgrounds that get randomly used when you open the application. It’s $1.99 which isn’t a bad price if you’re really into torch apps and you really hate advertisements. Most people will get more than enough enjoyment out of the free version.

The bottom line is that this is a fairly basic torch app with a little bit more sleekness than you’d see in other torch apps. We don’t like that it doesn’t come with a widget but everything else about it seems to be pretty good.
