    Bump to support an awsome app. Hows the progress with gettin it on the market? And still using it frequemrly thank you for making it. If your reading this and dont have this app show some support and post this is the only flashlight appafter all and im sire it wasnt too easy to make so if you dont have it and want it maybe some posts will bring another open beta or a release to market who knows but its worth a shot

    When is this app going live ? I rooted my phone, used rootdim and the Warp Creme Sandwich Rom, which disabled my wifi, would not let me mount my SD card, and prohibited me from downloading and connecting my phone via USB to my computer. I am somewhat of a newb, so I had a friend who is somewhat of an expert, and he basically said, insure it out. It's done. So I did. Not going to root my fourth phone, always seem to run into problems, or more than it is worth. My new Warp never freezes, well maybe once every 2 weeks when I am overworking it. Really want this flashlight app as it would be handy to have. At first I thought no big deal, but once I had it, BOOM, it was great. Looking forward to your app coming out. :)

    Etas are slightly frowned upon. Lets see what he can do for us without rush. I'm sure his personal life may have come in the way of this for the time being. Thank you. :)

    It's not in the Rules/Guidelines because it's not necessarily a rule that we enforce (nor is it one that we created).

    Asking a developer for an ETA can be seen, by some, as rude because they do the work for free... on their spare time... kind of like us guides and mods. Over the years, some (i.e. not all) developers have taken the stance that asking for an ETA is rude because they have to stop what they are doing to respond that an ETA is unknown so that they can then go back to keep working on developing so that 3 posts later they can go through it again (while if there was a bug reported it would be useful).

    So... asking for an ETA is ok, but it's all in the way that it's asked (if that makes sense). The way you asked it, however, seems to be completely fine BTW.

    But, to be clear, it is NOT against the rules of the forum (just the unwritten rules of developers mixed with a bit of courtesy (ironic as it may be)).


    Feel free to PM me for further clarification or to discuss if needed. :)

    I'm not replying to Kelmar, I just want to expand upon his explanation :)

    Another reason why it's rude, as I've seen this happen: A user requests an ETA. The developer says Friday, for example. It's now Friday night, and people are going crazy. Like someone stole their puppy. Saturday comes and goes with more irate people demanding when the ROM/App is going to be released, et cetera. And, like Kelmar said, they do it on a volunteer basis, often for free, and to demand something of someone that is doing you a service, for free, is incredibly rude.

    So developers stopped providing ETAs, because their project may not be completed at that time, or even within a week of the date, and they got fewer frustrated fans. Whenever I see a developer give any sort of ETA, it usually comes with a few caveats. Like "Soon, I have other things going on this week, so hopefully after I get all that sorted out". That sort of thing.

    Mooseberry, I did not mean to single you out or make you feel attacked in any sort of way. There were two other requests for ETAs right before you which I let sit idle because blackbolt has yet to respond, but I felt it would be best to finally respond for him and let everyone know something may have come up.

    Again I am sorry for that. If you have any questions, please shoot me a pm and we can discuss it further. Thank you! :)

    Alsaces daddy, hey friend I didn't exactly feel singled out I just wasn't sure. there has been some drama in other threads and I want to make sure I'm not out of line. Also like I said I don't want to be that guy. I can understand how etas can be bothersome. I do appreciate the advice (also, advice from the mods as well) and apology but it was not need trust me. And on a side note I want to thank you for all the help you have provided. Cheers

    I didn't even know there was a app. all I use to do was take a photo, wait for the flash to come on and hit the home button to keep the flash on then take another pic to make the flash go off lol.

    You will have to contact the dev blackbolt and talk to him about getting an authorization username. The app is locked without it.

    Alright so here is what's up.

    Yesterday we just got power back on after Isaac hit. 4 days no power. Not too bad but not great either.

    That being said I made a few changes to the app like have it remember the minutes setting. I used it today to install a kitchen faucet and it cut off at 5 minutes and luckily my friend turn it on again.... I wasn't happy about that lol.

    During the hurricane I used it a ton and noticed it taking about 1% of the battery down every 30-40 seconds or so!!! WOW. Honestly the light is insanely bright compared to say an I-Phone's light so it's no wonder the battery just drains down fast. Unfortunetly, on non-rooted phones, I have no way to provide a "DIM" option but I may make the minutes selection 1,2,5,10. I don't want an indefinite option because it may leave someone without a phone.

    I'm still alive, just been really busy and then the hurricane hit.

    @ UnknownUser1, I don't recall me giving you a username exactly?! I don't remember. I have to look through my private messages. I'll check into it and private message you...

    Taking suggestions on minute times for the flashlight.

    It's currently 1,2,3,4,5 Minutes.

    I don't really want to do more than 10 minutes.

    1,2,4,8,10?

    2,4,6,8,10?

    1,2,4,8,10?

    or reduced sizes like:

    1,5,10

    1,2,5

    1,2,5,10 (I like this one)
