Default Working flashlight APP (camera LED) in progress!!

EDIT: Get this APP, use the username "free" to activate. I keep getting requests via e-mail for authorize.

I just thought I'd tell everyone that after being disgusted about the lack of working flashlight apps (that keep the camera flash LED on) for the ZTE Warp (I own one), that I developed an app that does work without Root.

I call it "Warp Flashlight", and will keep everyone posted on it's progress.

Not sure how many of you would use it as it's a warp specific app. but I intend on registering as a developer and paying the $25 (when I can spare it) to put the app. on the market place.

Official Site:

================================================== ======================

Warp Flashlight as of 06/03/2012:

Without Root = One toggle button that toggles the Camera LED on or off.
With this app. you can toggle it on to be used as a flashlight and it will not go off even after exiting the app. I've already used it to record videos in the dark with the flash held on.
** You can go back into the app and toggle it off, or use another app, that uses the flash and it will also operate normally at that point even if it was toggled on by my app **

Update as of 06/26/2012:

BETA version was released to one rooted user and the app. works!!
I need a non-rooted user to test, so please pm me if you have decent knowledge of your phone, and installing non-market apk files, and would like to test. Thanks!

Update as of 07/14/2012:

I have several Beta testers testing this app. I am working to resolve any bugs etc. My next goal is to improve battery drain on the app. so I will be cancelling the idea of adding a compass and also optimizing other functions to improve efficiency.

Update as of 07/28/2012:

Looking for 1 more Beta tester, rooted or not.
Version 1.2 uploaded and the following changes have been made:
** Removed screen time out. Flashlight now works regardless of screen state!
** Added the ability to Authorize without internet. Authorizing will now grant 10 free uses at the click of a button. These uses are refreshed each time the app. is authorized.

Battery drain should go down significantly now that the screen times out again!

Update as of 09/23/2012:

** Version 1.3 released
** Open beta is now in effect. Download the app and use the username: openbeta. If you currently use the app I recommend as always that you clear the data and uninstall the old app before installing the latest version.
** Changed minutes to 1,2,5,10 from 1,2,3,4,5.
** Removed authorize BUTTON and no internet button after either work to enable the app. Mostly a clutter removal step.
** Added code to make the camera LED flash on enabling of app in an attempt to narrow down a bug. Please update me if you know about the initial on bug and have noticed it is gone or not. I can't seem to duplicate it always on my phone so that I can just solve it instantly.
** Added a blink check box for a future notification blink after receiving a text or during an incoming call. To use it do the following:

Leave the number at a default 1000 or change it to as low as 0. 0 is the fastest blink but it's a little laggy. 1000 is more consistant but slower. After, simply check the box to blink the flash and uncheck to turn it off. Use this feature at your own risk, it's very buggy at the moment.

In the rooted version (upcoming), the flash will be amazingly fast and will be more responsive. It will also have dim, bright, and off options. I plan to make it an all in one app where root access will simply enhance the features and speed.

Update as of 10/20/2012. As promised:

Version 1.4 is out!
** Fixed a few bugs.
** Increased "No Internet!" uses to 20.
** Open Beta still in progress.
** Added ROOT support for Rooted phones:
-Blink is enhanced.
-Dim feature to dim 'on the fly'.
-On/Off speed is enhanced greatly!

Update as of 11/19/2012

Version 1.5 is out!
** Fixed a bug which existed after restart (Root related)

Update as of 1/17/2013

Version 2.0 is out!
** Flashlight app now requires 1 authorization to enable the app for 1000 uses. Use the code "free" to enable.

Update as of 1/29/2013
Version 2.1 is out!
** Added asynchronous authorization to be forward compatible with newer Android versions.
** Changed the blink system but it may be broken or not functional at the moment. The changes are a slide bar to change the blink rate but it's under construction

Cheers,
Blackbolt22, PNC Software Developer.

Videos and more to come.

With Root access = Off, Dim, and Bright radio buttons that make the Camera LED do what it says. Not sure if I'm going to strip this functionality out as it only adds the DIM option (camera LED at partial brightness).

Blackbolt22, PNC Software Developer.
Badass thanks man now i dont have to use rootdim and tiny flashlight good luck

Here are two pics, albeit not the greatest. I will need at least 2-3 Warp users to install this and let me know if it works fine or not.

Right now the flashlight turns off when the display goes to sleep. To me this may be a problem because if it's being used as a flashlight, the light could go off potentially in a short period of time. On the other hand, leaving it on for a long period of time accidently could make the phone's battery go dead quickly.

I'm not sure how other flashlight apps work as I have yet to test one on my Warp that works. If anyone knows please chime in.

Finally my idea is to keep the screen from going to sleep (if possible) but ask for a button to be pressed after X period of time passes in order to continue.

Feedback please!!

Oh and there are a few other things I need to do before allowing other Warp owners to "test" it.

i think keeping the screen alive is a fine compromise until you can figure out keeping it on when screen is off. maybe add settings menu with option of keep screen on or not?

Added a timer system which disables the screen timeout and keeps the light on for 1 minute. After a minute the timeout is enabled and the flashlight disables itself. It can be re-enabled immediately though by pressing the button again.

I am open to suggestion on the time. My reason for 1 minute is I accidently left mine on about 5 minutes and the led and phone felt pretty hot. It wasn't on fire by any means but I think leaving it on accidently for prolonged period of time (hours) would definitely shorten it's life. We don't want that.

You should make a setting for light time on how long it stays on like 1-5 minutes just in case people need it on longer

Yeah I had that in the reply but I edited it out. I think it's what people will need though so I'm gonna put it in.

I use flashlight apps regularly so was quite disappointed in the lack of any working on this device. I'd happily test anything you need on a brand new, stock phone. I don't root or anything, personally.

Eh, forgot to copy this and paste it into my other reply. Sorry. :\

That sounds fine to me. I've been limping along with a screen-only app on my Galaxy Prevail for a year and honestly, the screen being on should be a good reminder to turn off the LED.

Just touching base with everyone. Sorry it's been a number of days... I'm kind of living out of my truck now so internet access isn't always readily available. I have been busy trying to make some cash though on the side to change that

Anyways the app. is still in progress and I got a few bugs out of it with the timer that shuts it off. My next task is deciding on how to implement the timer minute selection and i'll probably just use a spinner or the camera - and + to change it. Won't be custom, but eh, we don't care what's on the screen as long as it works well and has the things we need, right guys!!

TTYL. Oh and if anyone can shed some light quickly on the best way to get this app to the volunteers here to test it (I'm thinking provide a link with the APK?), please do so.

OK guys, haven't stopped working on it, just been busy.

I've been working on getting this IT job (taking certs., paperwork, etc.).

Meanwhile I added the ability to adjust the flashlight to stay on from 1 to 5 minutes. After which it automatically turns off.

I think this is the base of the app(meaning the core of what I want is there) so I'll be privately distributing the APK soon for testing. After I will post it here. My biggest concern is that it will leak out and the unfinished version will get spread around, which I do not want to happen!

I have to say though, I have used it countless times as a flashlight. Really it's wonderful to have. Even my friends have been using my phone for the flashlight lol!

I'm ready to test this app. I have been waiting months to get an app that will do this without all the crap to go through in order to get it to work. I am extremely excited to see this dev'd and out for everyone.

I made a site for the app. It's very basic but will have the apk. available for download when it's time.

Speaking of, it is nearly time. I just added in an authorization system so I can control who tests it. It will not function without authorization and will require internet access on the phone to validate after opening the app. (intended for BETA use only). It does store the last name entered so it's 2 clicks to get it to work after first use(auth button, and on button).

TODO: Add disclaimer, Add LED off on close using back button. I need the app to stay running during the on phase so it can properly turn off the LED.

Any other devs. out there got a good template disclaimer? I need to protect myself here.

Furthermore: If I give you a username to test this app. and any damages occur to the camera LED, it's lifespan, or the phone, etc., I am not responsible. There has been no testing on the short or long term effects of a camera application on the ZTE Warp or any other device it is run on.

Cool Idea but ZTE Warp has a flashlight glitch.

Open up camera, turn on flash, take a picture but hit the home screen when the camera square on the screen goes green and the flash will stay on... hit power once to turn off...

ApolloStar2109 does this app effect your camera in any way. i have not installed it i was just wondering.

Blackbolt22 thank you very much for taking the time to make this app. Also, thanks for not getting up set with my lack of patients. i felt like a 5 year old on x-mas waiting to open presents when i first read this post.

My apologies If the site or thread isn't clear. I thought by adding "camera led" that would help. I have a picture down the thread, a few posts down, attached which shows it working and lighting up my hand..

Okay so here is my full report on this app
Downloaded on mobile browser installed the app upon opening the app the disclaimer popped up stating what disclaimer state such as Blackbolt22 will not be held responsible for any damages and such so i accepted the terms entered my username and testes the camera at 1 minute interval worked like a charm closed the app and reopened to make sure my username was saved and it was tested at 2 minute interval worked perfectly closed reopened same thing username was saved 3 minute interval worked fine at this point any damage would become clear as my LED would start to burn out and it was still bright as it was before i tested so that cleared up i tested at 4 minutes same thing worked perfectly then i tested at 5 no problems what so ever and no damages
Thanks Blackbolt22 for this app keep up the good work some of us are excited about this dont let anyone deter you from this

Is this still a closed beta? I am very eager to use this, as i am an electrician and ironically i work in the dark often. Please let me know if you could use me as a tester. I am rooted however and on Unitology 3.5.

Seriously guys... I've had to delete TWENTY FIVE posts because people misunderstand one another and feel the need to bash on someone who sees things differently.

Treating a user the way that some of you have is embarrassing! The forum is a business for the owner. He has certain rules in place. One of those is to treat others respectfully. It's really not that hard.

I'll make this CLEAR. Post respectfully to one another and drop the attitudes and hatred toward other user(s) or find a different forum to post on. THIS GOES FOR EVERYONE.


OP - Sorry to interrupt your thread. It looks like this could be useful for quite a few other users.

I will select someone who private messages me requesting to BETA test and who does NOT have their phone rooted.

I already have a rooted tester and he was absolutely perfect in testing and reporting back!!

That being said I will select based on:

Knowledge of non-market apk installs
Non-rooted phone
Community contribution (as in these forums!)
Intelligence Quotient (j/k, but kinda srs. :P )

Looking for someone who can basically provide good feedback, use the app. alot, but most importantly download->install->authorize without me virtually holding their hand to do it

If you think you fit this criteria please message me. I have a few messages already but most are from rooted users.

Thanks and <3 to everyone in this thread!
