Android is a great mobile OS to code for. If you have a plethora of users at your disposal then your app can go viral within just a few cycles of clocks, and you will be a renowned app developer. A fair example of this happening is the Flappy Bird app. But we are not going to talk about that annoying game again (I’m still trying my best to get more than 21 points!), rather than that, we are going to talk about torch apps for Android.
Torch apps are very helpful for the people who live in the area where power cut is very frequent. Now the Utility category in Play Store is filled with apps that help us make the most out of our devices. Torch apps are one of them but there are many torch apps and you might get confused as to which one you should go for.
Many of the torch apps out there require some useless permissions while installing them like accessing your contacts or your messages and what not. Why would any of these torch apps for Android need to access your contact?
So in this post we are going to list best 10 torch apps for Android that do what they claim and don’t require any useless permissions.
Without any further ado, let’s check them out:
1. Real SOS LED Flashlight
This is one of the most simple and functional torch apps for Android. You can use this as a regular LED flashlight but in times of emergency you can also make use of the SOS mode that will make the flash LED blink fast and also use your phone’s speaker to make loud noise. Apart from that, it comes with slow and fast blinking mode. But if you want the LED to blink at your custom rate, you can do that as well using the slider you will see the app. This app is a must try!
2. Flashlight – Mobile Apps Inc
This app comes with a very easy to use interface. You can just tap that power button to turn on the LED and it also uses your phone’s compass to determine the directions. You can also use that strobe the LED in various different patterns.
3. Flashlight – SimGears
This app comes with widgets that you can place on your home screen or your lock screen to use the Flashlight right from there without opening the app. This app can also check when your phone is in the pocket and this will automatically turn off the flashlight to save battery.
4. Flashlight – Mega Flashlight
This app can easily use both your phone’s LED flash or your phone’s screen to convert it into a flashlight. You can make the LED flash of your phone strobe in patterns as you want and even use it to send across some morse code messages using LED flash. This is also one of the best torch apps for Android.
5. Flashlight HD LED
This can use your phone’s screen as well as LED to turn it into a flashlight, and you can place a widget on your home screen to turn on flashlight without any problems. You can also choose any color, and the screen will light up in that color code you have chosen.
One of the many torch apps for Android that you should try.
6. Privacy Flashlight
This app not only uses only the required permissions, but it is also very small in size coming in at about 1 MB only. It is one of the many simple and to the point torch apps for Android that you can use. It also comes with a home screen widget.
7. Super-Bright LED Flashlight
This app only asks for required permissions like the camera and mic, and you can use this app as a flashlight or to use it as a strobe light. The UI is also very easy to use and hence it is one torch app that you should definitely try.
8. TeslaLED Flashlight
You might have heard of the Nova Launched. Yes, this app is developed by the same team that develops the Nova Launcher so you can expect it to work amazingly. You can definitely it as a flashlight app but other than that it also works fine as a morse code or strobing app.
9. Tiny Flashlight + LED
This is one of the most used flashlight apps for Android, and it uses your phone’s screen as well as flashlight LED to its advantage. It also comes with a home screen widget that you can use to use the flash light.
One of the most simple and to the point app not only in the flashlight category but all of the Play Store. Open up the app to find out a switch that you tap to turn on the flashlight. It comes with a home screen widget that you can use to turn on the flashlight and use. It is also less that 1 MB and it makes this app worth noting.
Verdict – The End
There are many flashlight apps out there, but you wouldn’t want one that is snooping on your data while you are using it, right?
That’s why this list will help you in finding your perfect flashlight app.

I don’t have a phone that has a flash light built into it. When I get one, I will keep this post in mind. I would prefer to have the brightest torch out there.
I find it amazing that some of the Androids have the morse code built into them.
I will be getting a new phone in the future and will research what they all do.
You have an awesome day and rest of the week!
Torchlight is an essential thing to have in the phone. It helps greatly at times. Get Samsung galaxy S6 phone if you are planning for getting a new phone.

Flashlight apps are very useful in the emergency situation. It’s true that it can not replace the traditional Flashlight but sometime it is better to have something than nothing. Thanks Atish to share this article with us. Nice job.
