Best Free Flashlight App For Windows Phone
I have also ruled out apps which bombard you with more adverts than light and apps that add so many extra ‘features’ that they fall down on the basic function – an easy way to turn the phone’s lights on. So what’s the best free flashlight app for Windows Phone?
Flashlight-X (by Asleroid)
Averages ratings – 4.5 star ratings. Cost – free. Adverts? Yes, but still the best flashlight app I could find for Windows phone, free or not (the Pro version costs $0.99 and is advert free). Designed for – Windows Phone 7.5 or higher. Size – less than 1MB.
Download – and more info at Windows Phone Marketplace here. The Pro paid version without any ads is available here. The app offers a true flashlight that uses your camera phone’s flash to light up constantly with no flickering. Features include:
- Turns on instantly
- Works on all Windows Phone devices! (except HTC Mozart because of XENON flash)
- Uses Camera’s LED Flash.
- No flickering (Constant Mode)
- Disables screen lock when the flash is on
- SOS mode for emergency situations
Flashlight-X includes some adverts which is annoying but there are far fewer apps to choose from in the Windows Phone Marketplace than for Android/iPhone so there is much less competition – and most of its free competitors use ads too…
The free version of Flashlight-X is simple to use, well featured and gets such good reviews that it still wins out as the best flashlight app for Windows Phone.
