Tiny Flashlight - Flashlight From Your Lock Screen

Simple things shouldn't have to be complicated.

Published onJanuary 23, 2012

There are countless flashlight apps on the Android Market. Some utilize a phones LED flash, others mirror a bright white image on your screen for a light source. But you have to admit that so many of these related applications are made because it is used for a multitude of things.

For example, when it’s dark out your driving home from work and then you get to your door. You have your keys, but you don’t have your lights on. You then have to play a guessing game to find out where the key slot is before you can get in your house. Then you get frustrated but realize you have a flashlight application.

Then you pull your phone out. You have to unlock it, open the application and more waiting. But what if you could cut half of the hassle by simply shaking your phone.

Tiny Flashlight is available in the Android Market for free. And over the past couple of days, they have been working on an update for Android 4.0, mainly to suit all phones so that users are happy.

To enable the lock screen shake feature, touch the bulls eye button in the top right corner to enter the settings menu. In there, you will be able to enable many functions including vibration and notifications.

Do you hassle to get into your house at night? Why do you think developers make your flashlight applications, even though there already is many? I would love to hear your comments about this growing epidemic.
