I am loving ShaoSoft today. They just released a FREE (like beer) application called FlashOn for BlackBerry. It uses the built in Camera/Video LED light to imitate a flashlight with just your BlackBerry. This is such a groundbreaking technology that some think it might actually be patentable.
FlashOn uses the built in video camera light, the front LED and the screen to create the a customized Flashlight.
INSTRUCTIONS: First set all application permissions to Allow. You can do this from the Blackberry Options screen under Applications. Press any key during the start up to bring up the options screen (on Storm device press MENU/BB button). From the options screen you can set the color of the front LED (or turn it off). You can also have FlashOn cover up the video camera screen when running. If you are having issues with the cover up try increasing the delays, as well ensure all application permissions are set to allow.
- Set colour of front LED
- Set colour of screen
- Use video camera light
- Customize the duration of the light
