    That functionality is not built in by default. But I believe I saw an app yesterday specifically for the Droid that can accomplish this.

    That's the great thing about Android. It's all possible.

    Doesn't appear in market, when using QR code it says not found. No search finds it either.

    pope, those use the LCD and not the flash from the camera. still, it helps when walking around the house at night or in other situations. even came with a strobe feature :icon_ banana:

    Bump. Perhaps someone else might know.

    Also, since I'm here. What's that app lets you know when you get messages or calls? Like it appears on the screen.

    Thanks

    As far as the flashlight, I'm doing the best I can to get an application developed for that purpose. That's my first priority. Sad, right? It's totally necessary though!

    As for the text message popping up, try SMS Popup.
