    Now that we can use the LED as a flashlite like the droid had from the begining, can devs now create apps to make it even more functional? I know before the 2.2 upgrade there were app but they required root. I'd like to see a strobe or a programable morse code....?? :eek:

    You can already do Menu > Auto Flash or SOS.

    Unless you are talking about a party strobe that flickers really quickly..

    Am I missing something? Who still uses Morse code. I have a sneaking suspicion if the developers of Morse code had smartphones, Morse code would have never been developed at all.

    Personally, I'm waiting for the smoke signal or telegraph app. Now THAT will be something great! ;)

    before college i had morse code memorized and ive had to use it twice actually.

    we were out in the ocean on our boat when our propeller came off, the coast guard was an hour or so out after a mayday call and since it was after sunset we spotted a boat, signaled sos and they responded and we signaled motor problem back to them and they came right away.

    so there :rolleyes: your stupid smoke signal app wouldnt have worked in that scenario

    haha. im a huge fan of preparing for apocalyptic scenarios (zombiepocalypse being my favorite) so i like to know all those primitive forms of communication.

    binary is next on my list to learn, which will never happen, i wonder if theres a rosetta stone for that...

    Years ago, when I got my Ham license, I had to be able to send and receive 13 words a minute in Morse Code. That is no longer a requirement.

    But I now use a "Morse code" ringtone for my alerts. LOL

    Here it is:

    If I was out in the ocean in the dark and some boat was flashing their lights at me, I'd figure they need help. And I don't know morse code lol.

    Just sayin'.

    Oh, I see, I had thought you said you were waiting for those apps instead of Morse code! My mistake :)
