    FYI: This app may never get updated again. For personal reasons I am considering stopping all development activities, not that I ever got that far anyway. I am satisfied that there were some who appreciated this app.

    Pregame's My Flashlight, as cool as it is, requires a rooted Pre, leaving many in the dark. So while BADD Flashlight has about ZERO coolness factor, it will work on any unmodified, stock Pre.

    Not all is lame, however, BADD Flashlight has a feature that LED-based phone flashlights do not and can not have: A Night Vision mode. Astronomy enthusiasts, among others, use red-light flashlights to protect their dark-adjusted eyes. This is actually THE reason why I bothered to make the app in the first place.

    BADD Flashlight may be at the bottom of the webOS barrell, but that barrel will be well lit.

    There's also a little something extra to protect your night vision: a solid red background to temporarily swap out with your current wallpaper. I hope to make this part of the app, but that's ... later.

    I'm still working to expand BADD Flashlight's functionality, including a setting for a default light and hopefully tapping into the brightness api. SOS functionality is still on the TODO list, but you shouldn't hold your breath.

    ISSUES: Menu and About dialog are too bright. I am working to darken them to protect your night vision.

    INSTALLATION: Install in Dev Mode with either webOS Quick Install or webOS SDK. Preferably, use fileCoaster if that is installed. THIS GUIDE can help you install the SDK.

    Version 0.1 Only: Will not upgrade due to its outdated app ID and must be manually deleted.

    Yes, I tested it before and, again, just now. Thanx for the reminder. I will put that in the OP ... tomorrow, after some sleep.

    i used it, Just a very basic white screen -grey screen- red screen. Does not turn on the flash. And text is quite thick so there really isn't to much white screen. But no rooting required just the sdk

    Oh really? No offense, but this is as basic as it gets... load a white form with nothing on it and call it an app? OK....

    Well, clearly not as cool as turning on/off the LED, but there is precedent. PalmOS and Blackberry both have "flashlight" apps which are just a white screen. Plus, I used to have a "mirror" app for PalmOS that turned the screen black so you could look at yourself in it.

    Regardless of the simplicity, I'm glad to see people firing up their compilers (well, metaphorically, since it's WebOS ) to implement ideas.

    I haven't installed this one yet, but I can't wait to! Try finding the horsehead nebula and you'll appreciate what the author has done.

    My Flashlight should win easily. After I figure out the screen brightness controls it may be a fair fight, but that's ... later.

    What I want to see is a flashlight app that does both, so it works like a lantern, casting light everywhere it can. That app will be a drain on the battery, but in the right situation could be very usefull.

    I constantly use my phones as flashlights. This will come in handy thanks!

    Hi,

    Any chance that you can add an SOS functionality? That is, can you have the display flash out SOS...or other Morse Code words?
  15. #15  
    this might not be the coolest app ever made, but it seriously works and i am glad to have it on my phone.

    Thanks for this. I really like the red light for use around my room at night.

    something like a blogspot/wordpress page.

    Sure you can, but it's not really an app. iPhones did that stuff with their web apps before the SDK was released. The difference is people want apps, not web pages.

    How about making the controls for off/white/red a radio button at either the top or bottom of the page?

    I am, of course, talking about the webOS radiobutton ui widget, so that it looks mor webOS autentic, and the location increases the whitespace or red, offered by the app.
