    Hey guys whats up...
    Took me a while to find this and I figured I should let you guys know...
    Its a flashlight app that finally utilizes the LEDs on Android 2.0 (sorry no support for lower I guess)
    Its called MotoTorch LED, I didnt make this app and I couldnt find a QR Code for it but do a search for it in the market and youll find it..and its FREE!
    Heres the dev's blog, great job...

    Eclipsed4utoo's Blog Blog Archive MotoTorch LED – LED Flashlight – My First Android Application

    BTW you can find it by going to Apps, Tools and Just In...enjoy and donate to the dev!!

    I've had it for several days, and it's an awesome App. Not only does it turn on all the LED's for a flashlight, but it had strobe effects, as well as being able to send morse code using the LED's

    Got this app last night (bought my phone yesterday afternoon), works perfect just like the light on my Tour. The Morse code part blew me away, I thought that was part was pretty awesome.

    This might be a dumb question, but would using this app alot burn out or use up the LEDs prematurely?

    LED's will never burn out unless they experience an over-voltage.

    Now... Is their an app that turns on the little bitty light next to the charging port?

    you're not doing it right, you generate the QR codes yourself by saving a bookmarklet (just a bookmark where instead of an address it's code) with the following code:

    Code:
    javascript:void(open('http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=300x300&chl='+encodeURIComponent(getSelection()+""||location.href),'Qr%20code','width=310,height=310'))
    then whatever page you're on, just go to that bookmark and a window will pop up with your QR address code.

    I just noticed this today. The app has a widget. Add the widget which acts just like the icon, but you hit it to turn the LED on or off. Very useful.

    Agreed, probably just a "because I want to" sort of deals.....:icon_eek: What other use would that little light provide?

    This is a great application. I've used several times now. I used it while working on my parent's computer, to hook up jumper cables to a car battery, etc.

    i would like it too. reason being is sometimes if i am hammered and stumble into bed after shutting the lights off, i have a very hard time feeling around in the dark trying to stick the plug into the phone. and sometimes i find myself trying to put it in upside down. i actually think this could be a useful tool.

    Excellent, I used the video recorder on my BB curve so I could use the LED as a flashlight, I was hoping this app got developed before I picked up my droid.
