One of the main functions of ROOT in the early root days was the ability to use your phone's camera flash as a flashlight. This became a highly desired custom Rom feature. Pretty soon developers figured out how to use this feature without root. Now even OEMs like HTC include it in their own Android skins, and now Google has included it as a quick setting in Android 5.0 Lollipop. The only issue with the way current Flashlight apps and toggles work is the inconvenience of having to wake up your device and fumble around for the app or the toggle. Normally when you need your LED flashlight you need it NOW. Developers from "Bring Technologies" have developed a much easier and quicker method for getting that LED flashlight turned on.
Their new "Power Button Flashlight" app allows you to use your power button to turn on the LED flashlight! To start the flashlight all you have to do is push the power button 3 times within 3 seconds. If your screen is already on you can press the power button 4 times. This means you no longer have to unlock your device to turn on the flashlight. When it really matters every second counts. There are both paid and free versions of the app. If you pay for the app you can use the power button to turn off the flashlight. With the free version of the app you will have to wake up your device, enter the app and turn it off from within the app. Head to the Play Link below for the download.
