yep. i was looking for it too.
well, if it's any consolation, there are a motherload of flashlight apps on the market. wonder if any work with this phone...
The HTC version was my favorite. I like the way you can turn it on and off without having to go through the lockscreen everytime to turn it back on. I use this app a lot!!! Hopefully there is one on the market that acts the same way.
or via an OTA update, thats how we got it on the EVO 4G to begin with.
yeah i noticed the htc flashlight app was missing too. i used that app many times on my EVO. looks like we need another OTA.
Yea it sucked to see it wasn't there.
For now I'm using Tiny Flashlight + LED. Add it as a widget. Works fine.
Tiny Flashlight + LED - Android app on AppBrain
I found that app, and it works great! New to the Android - the 3d is my first, my daughter has an Optimus S. I may start a preferred apps thread, there are so many duplicates out there. My last phone was a Palm TreoPro that I held until I could get the 3d instead of the 4g. Big jump fro a Palm.
Welcome to the forums and Android. We have a thread for apps already..
As for the flashlight app, I miss it as well.
Would be nice to have
a) Adjustable brightness as the HTC flashlight had
b) NO ADS!
Common HTC... of all the things to remove...
Someone has pulled the apk from the Kingdom ROM and verified it works on the E3D.
HTC Flashlight APP - xda-developers
I had just started using Tiny Flashlight + LED and it was OK but just wasn't the old 3 stage one on my Evo. Saw your post momoceio and downloaded it...it's working great.
Works good. Thanks.
Got it set up. Thanks for that link. Works great. I wonder why HTC left this out? It is such a handy tool.
My guess: Deadlines.
I hope that's the reason, and we can expect an OTA or two within the next month to address these issues. I don't mind being an early adopter and not getting all the bells and whistles immediately, just as long as I get them within a reasonable time frame.
I'd rather they got the bootloader unlock out first.
Very interesting that it isn't there because it's in the user guide
Flashlight [FONT=JEIEC H+ Berthold Standard BQ,Standard BQ][FONT=JEIEC H+ Berthold Standard BQ,Standard BQ]Never be caught in the dark again. Use the Flashlight application to turn on your device
Since I won't get my 3D til tomorrow, if anyone has tried the flashlight app, is it the one that looks like an actual flashlight like you see on the commercials, or something different? Just curious ahead of getting my own to try.
It's the same one that looks like a mag-light...same that's on the EVO 4g pretty much. It was pulled from another Sense 3.0 ROM.
The link is broken
I downloaded the .apk, but the phone said it doesn't recognize the file?
The above one is aok.
Presuming settings, Application, check for install unknown sources:
Use Astro File Manager, goto to /sdcard/download - click the Flashlight.apk - choose second option to go install manager - press install on next screen.
The other (insanely easy) thing that you can do is after checking install unknown sources, email the apk to your gmail account. When you open the email, it allows you to install the right from there. Sure it's wasting a little upload/download, but if you're not crunched for data transfer (I loathe that people call it bandwidth), it's fast and easy.
I noticed that the flashlight app was missing the first day I got the phone and thought to myself, oh no! How could they leave this out. I forgot about it, but glad I read this thread and now have my good old app running great! Thanks guys for getting this out there!
Ditto! I didn't realize how much I missed this app until I needed it the other morning. I had to be at work earlier than usual so I was up before dawn. Didn't want to flip lights on and wake anyone up so I grabbed my phone and...no flashlight app. Downloaded and installed and works great!
