Torch Reviews

This is a flashlight app that is easy for everyone to use. You do have to allow permission for your phone to install the app. From using a bright flashlight to using the app as a strobe light with a simple swipe of the screen, you can have various lights on your phone anytime you want them. The startup with the app is very fast, allowing you to quickly go from a standard light to the flashlight on the phone. The strobe light has a controller that lets you change the frequency. It's a fun feature to have because you can make the flashes slow or fast depending on what you want to see. There is an SOS signal with the flashlight app. If you need help, you can send signals to other people who are nearby who can see your phone. This is a good feature for those who are on the water or those who are on the side of the road in a dark area. There is also a light for the camera that is brighter than the standard light, making pictures a bit brighter. If you want to see more details in your pictures, then you should use the camera light instead of the normal flash.
