    Droid Flashlight is an application that uses the flash on your Droid as a flashlight. This requires root but should work on Eclair and Froyo on the Droid. The following features are also available in the application:

    - Use flash as flashlight
    - Morse code converter (type in a string and the application flashes out the text in morse code using your camera flash)
    - SMS notify (use camera flash as a notification of a new SMS, useful for dark places)
    - Strobe (use camera flash as a strobe light)
    - Widget for turning on and off LED

    May or may not work on the Droid X (I've tested this on a Droid X running Froyo and it worked but I have not tested this on a Droid X running Eclair).

    If there are any problems please let me know here so I can fix them promptly.

    EDIt** Admin/Mod please move this thread to appropriate location, I thought I was posting in the appropriate forum but I wasn't, sorry about that.

    So is there actually a bug in the app? To turn the led off after you turn it on just hit the same button, it switches to off after the led is turned on.

    Just added a fix for some startup force close issues some people were getting, shouldn't get them anymore. If anyone gets anymore issues let me know and I'll fix them right away.

    Thanks a lot, developers gotta eat. The bad review is from the force close error which I fixed. On another note if you find any bugs or errors let me know and i'll fix them within 48 hours, depending of course if i have access to internet at the time. Also if you want any more features let me know and I'll add them if I can.

    okay so pretty much when i tap the widget for the flash light the camara led works but it also turns on the lcd brightness all the way up and does not turn off when u tap the widget to off so what you haft to do is lock the phone with the hardbutton on the top right and the lcd resets it self back to auto brightness instead of all the way up so yes its a bug but nothing that bothers me

    Ok, thanks a lot for reporting that. The widget currently only turns the led on, you can turn it off using the app itself by clicking the on button and then clicking it again (a fix is coming for the widget to turn the led on and off). The screen brightness is definitely a bug and I'm working on a fix for that right now, should be releasing an update sometime tomorrow after work. Again, thanks for letting me know.

    Also a better looking widget is coming too (one that actually lines up with the other icons)

    Did you get a force close before or after the update that I released a few hours ago? Also what were you doing when it force closed?
