    Lol thanks. I read some of the comments and saw a number of "the best flashlight app". I had to scratch my head on that one.

    After the last update, I cannot chose to dim or turn off the screen. I cannot check the box or move the slider

    also, when clicking on the icon (which is ridiculously big now!!) and not clicking it inside the box that changes color (like on the edge of the widget, which, as i mentioned before is quite huge) it makes a heptic feedback buzz and doesn't do anything.

    That's because you have Automatic Brightness on. Automatic Brightness overrides any settings changes that I make, which caused people to think my app was broken. I can't do anything about Automatic Brightness, so I decided to disable the "Torch" options if Automatic Brightness is enabled.

    you are clicking outside of the "click area" of the widget. The clickable part is actually just the inside image.

    Too bad.

    Hmmm....before the update it was turning off my screen.

    I also prefer the previous widget icon

    For about 95% of the people, it didn't work correctly. If Google gave me a way to enable/disable the auto brightness, I wouldn't have had to disable the settings.

    I am releasing an update tomorrow to allow you to choose which widget icon you want.

    awesome, thanks! the current clickable area of the icon is great, better than the wooden torch, however the border is big and kinda photoshop-1999-y and should go :)

    if you're open to additional feedback here's what i found:

    1. screen dimming works (only after full reinstall, upgrading didn't work for me)
    2. screen turning off doesn't work at all
    3. screen dimming only works in app mode - which i don't think most people use on a regular basis - can the settings apply to widget mode?
    4. widget not removed from home screen when you uninstall app, empty box remains with text "problem loading widget"
    5. In list of applications, MotoTorch LED is listed between Calculator and DockRunner... it somehow manages to break the alphabet ordering which no other app I have does!

    thanks!

    2. Do you have Automatic Brightness enabled? Does the screen get brighter when you turn the LEDs on?

    3. I am still working on that. In the app, I dim the "window" that you see. However, the widget doesn't have a "window", so there is nothing for me to dim. Currently in Android 2.0, dimming the window is the only way that works. The other way to dim the screen is to change the brightness of the device, which doesn't work from the SDK. Hopefully one of the coming patches will fix this.

    4. I'll see if I can figure out how to do that.

    5. Do you have the Donation version? If so, that's why. That list is not sorted by application name. It's sorted by the last part of the package name(which end-users normally don't see). In the donation version, that last word is "donation". That's why it's sorted where it is.

    Oh, and incase people haven't noticed, I suck at photoshop. Programming is what I do, not graphics. I just try to get by with the graphics.

    2. nope, with automatic brightness enabled nothing works (because of android limitation)... with it disabled the screen dims correctly, however the turn-off tickmark doesn't change the behaviour at all, is it actually supposed to completely turn off the lcd?

    3. ah, makes sense... hope there's a way to add that later.

    5. nope, regular version. i had your paid-version before but after you changed the product id have just been downloading the non-donation version.

    thanks for looking at these, and i sure know what you mean about photoshop, i'm exactly the same way... eye candy 3000 is as fancy as it gets :)

    2. yes, it should turn the entire screen off, though this takes about 5 seconds for it to "kick in".

    5. hmm....that's interesting. I don't really know why then.
