Just for fun I wrote a flashlight app. I know, there are already a few others but this was a first dive in to a windows phone 7 app and I thought I would share:





The only glitch I have seen is toggling QUICKLY between on and off doesnt work and the light stays on. Exitting usually fixes it, however if it doesnt then relaunch and the re-initialize of the camera will turn it off.

The XAP is attached.

I assume this uses the LED of the camera instead of the screen (as most other apps do)? Too bad I am on an HTC 7 Mozart with a xenon flash

Perfect! Been wanting one of these for some time now. The flash on the Focus is too bright not to use as a flashlight. Thanks!

Just a few words about UI and functionality: HTC has a perfect example how to flashlight application should be implemented. Why don't you use HTC assets and add same (if possible of course - two levels of flashlight works only on HTC handsets) functionality?

Hmm, how long before M$ allows dev's to toggle functions via live tiles?
That would be a handy feature for this app

Interesting thought... and to tell you the truth it wouldnt be hard to just issue the toggle on launch and then quit which would essentially do what you want. The app would initialize then toggle the cam and quit back to the tile screen.

No, get switch on titles - not so good idea! But have a HTC assets and functionality sounds much better. If you want I can send you a HTC flashlight graphics.

I understood what you meant but since its not available I was just suggesting that it was as close as I could get

Why wouldnt you just use the HTC one if you wanted its graphics/functions?

Sure you can PM me a link to get the HTC stuff.

It's simple - 'cause I have (personally) Samsung Focus (but have a bunch of different development handsets at office)

P.S. Actually I can spend a few hours and write that app by myself but if you already started...

the htc solution is absolutely ugly and does not fit the windows phone 7 metro theme and application design AT ALL.

best would be to be able to do it straight from a tile. but i doubt it's possible.
