    So today I was out on the road and really had to use the restroom. Got to the gas station, ran in, and the attendant told me the light didn't work. Should I try to go in the dark or hold it until I got to the next station?

    Neither! There's an app for that. Pregame's My Flashlight app.

    Turned the app on, put the Pre face down on top of some paper towel on top of the towel holder and had some nice mood lighting.

    Try doing that with an iphone.

    Thank you, Pregame. You saved my pants.

    Haha I love that app.
    It was one of the first homebrew apps to come out on the Pre too.

    I wish I could install it still.
    After a replacement I could not put it back on my Pre.

    Haha, great little story!
    As big and snazzy as many apps (or anything in life, for that matter) try to be, sometimes the best are just the simple ones...

    Where can I find My Flashlight? I've trying to find it since I first bought my Pre two weeks ago.

    Good story! I personally can't stand using the restroom in low lighting conditions.. especially one I'm not familiar with.. yuck.

    I thought I had heard that the app may do some damage to the LED by providing too much juice and burning it out.. or something along those lines. I never followed up with it thought. Can anyone confirm this or was that proved wrong?

    I use it maybe every other day at least once. I have used it a few time when on a run at the firehouse and needed a flashlight for a moment and did not have the one from the truck. Have even used it under a dash or looking at the back of electronic components.

    Rooted Pre or maybe can be found through .ipk files.

    LED lights rarely burn out - they don't produce the same heat as regular (halogen type) bulbs. Not even close. Theoretically, the only way to burn out LED bulbs is to meet or exceed the number of hours that they are designed to illuminate. Many LED's are designed to illuminate for 10's of thousands of hours.
