    Hi Guys,

    I have renamed the app from "CameraLED" to "LED Flashlight / Strobe" to get more visibility.

    It's got strobe, tap, and a widget.

    One more feature planned as well.

    I still can't find it in the search. Why don't you post a "QR tag" here so we can scan in the direct link to the market with our Droids?

    Found it and bought it.... Works exactly as described. Thanks! I just searched for "LED" and it came up in the list. It uses both LED's also.

    Yes it can. I recorded a video of my g/f last night in the dark, works like a charm. :icon_ banana:

    Much more features than the other one from Chet. Same price too, 99 cents, two level strobe, tap for on, widget. ect. ect.

    Niko,

    Is thefact that the LEDs really aren't that bright just a product of the API? My one LED bb storm is WAY brighter than this and it has 2.

    Is this a limitation of what a developer has access to?

    Since these are led bulbs and not standard bulbs, is it safe to assume this wont harm them?

    Hi, yes it appears so for now. If you look thru the android source code you wont find anything about what the camera is doing with the light.

    However, if the phone is connected to the debugger and you use the camera you will see "torch" messages appear that indicate the torch is being adjusted in power.

    However, these messages appear to be in Moto's driver, not in android. For example, you call autoFocus() on their driver, it does the rest (as well as turning on the lights). There appears to be no way to access them in the same manner.


    Harrison_W1137:

    I dont believe there should be much of a concern, LED light last pretty much forever as long as you don't overpower them, and you don't connect them backwards. However, I'm thinking the reason that flashlight mode seems to run dimmer is for two reasons - one, to save power - two, it could be possible that the current is right at its limit in full power, so it may not be safe to leave them on for too long at that power.

    Well I'm assuming that the reason they aren't at full power is because the only "mode" currently available in the driver to developers that allows the LEDs to stay on(and not flash off) is the mode that turns on while auto focusing, which is dimmer than the flash.

    nikolatesla20, are you the creator? I have this app and use the widget, but for some reason it keeps force closing. This results in the widget not working. I have to open the app to be able to turn on the LED. Can this be fixed?
