One of the most annoying things ever has to be carrying a handful of stuff, fumbling for keys, and then fumbling for your LED flashlight on your phone so you can see the lock on the door you are tyring to unlock. With stock android you have to wake up your phone, punch in your pin, swipe down your status bar, then press your flashlight toggle. This could take up to 5 seconds. If you need your flashlight and you need it fast there is a better way.

Jones Technologies has developed a Flashlight/Torch app that allows you to turn on your flashlight with just the power button. The best part is that it doesn't even require root. The app is free with an in app purchase. The free version allows you to turn on the flashlight by pressing the power button 3 times in a row fast. To turn it off just open the app and turn it off. The paid version allows you to use the power button to turn the flashlight off.

Description
* Start flashlight by pressing phone's Power button 3 times within 3 seconds!
* Now you have the fastest flashlight - a hardware torch with an actual physical button for switch!
* Brightest flashlight you can get on Android - no doubt, this is as bright as flashlights can get!
NO ROOT required!
NOTE: Do not press too quickly if your phone is slow.
Features:
★ Start flashlight for free by pressing Power button of the device 3 times.
★ Fastest flashlight - no need to unlock or even look at phone to start the flash light.
★ Power button flashlight always works - start it even if screen is off or device is asleep.
★ Flashlight stays on while doing other things or while screen is off.
★ Stop flashlight with 3 hits of Power button (in Full version only). Or just stop the LED light inside the app for free.
★ Shake to start flashlight only when screen is On.
★ The Power button flashlight toggle is optimized for performance and right user experience - see more settings inside.
Flashlight tested and working on the LED flash of most nowadays devices!

Please do not leave bad rating, as this is not helping this flashlight app to get better! Thanks!

They could be using it as a double entendre. Yes Brighter and bight could be referring to the luminescent output, but it could also mean how smart something is. When referring to a flashlight app, using bright is just a more fun way of saying "Smartest flashlight you can get on Android - no doubt, this is as smart as flashlights can get!"
So to answer your question, yes it is brighter than ever other app that turns your camera flash on because it can do so without unlocking your phone or even looking at the screen. Just triple click the power button. That seems smart to me.

EDIT: After just a few minutes of testing this app, I purchased the full version. Great app. Truly is the brightest(smartest) flashlight app I have used.

Great idea! It's working fine on my Nexus 5. I brought the pro version, it's more convenient to switch the light off again with the power button.

If you need help with the German translation feel free to send me the strings.

I also bought the pro version.

It doesn't work well for me on my Nexus 5. It's a hit and miss.
Sometimes after pressing the required # of power buton clicks the app repoerts that it's on but it's not.
I played with the # of required clicks and the timing but haven't been able to get it to a point where is just works w/o having to make a few attempts..

I'm fully stock, never rooted but have Pattern Screen Lock enabled on my device.

Sorry to hear. I set it to expect 3 on/off switches in 2 sec. If I'm too fast with the repetitions it's not working (like onoffon). But if I do it calm like on, off, on is relaible.

Hi there,
Of course we are joking - we all know the intensity of light could not be changed. That's why we say "this is as bright as flashlights can get", and this is included for both ASO (app's SEO) and user's that are lame enough to search for the brightest flashlight. I am glad you found a better way to understand "bright" . And thanks for using the flashlight.
