    It flashes for a second before the light turns on. Anyone have this issue?

    Yes, I have the same issue. I saw it mentioned on one of the lists of compatible apps, so it was expected.

    Yea i put it up in there, iono who removed it, but yes it does flash a bit, for us people with ADD, i do get a bit bothered, but probably one of the best flashlight app out there

    Maybe iOS5 is trying to do some red-eye prevention by flashing the flash. Doesn't it do something similar when taking a picture?

    I've noticed this too.

    My problem with springflash went a little more crazy last night though.

    I tried activating it my usual way with the lock switch and it started spazzing out! locking, unlocking, locking, unlocking,locking, unlocking! and no sign of a flash:confused:

    But im also starting to get suspicious of it crashing my phone to a lock state!. What happens is, the screen dims and i'm unable to swipe to unlock or answer any calls/text:confused: the only way I had any luck in getting the phone to respond again was by.. believe it or not, activating springflash!

    I'm going to uninstall and see how things go for the next few days..

    This is happening too. BigBoss refuses to fix it, calling it a "minor issue"

    Same here. Such a seemingly simple tweak destroyed by bad developing

    This is an absolute joke. Shows a lack of attention to detail in developing.

    Charge $1.00 for the app and fix and I'll pay.

    Emailed BigBoss. The douchelord said he doesn't want to spend hours on something that ends up working anyway after many tries.

    WOW ??

    OK, for all you OCD folks here, why not switch to WeeFlashlight for NotificationsCenter.

    It doesn't have the "dreaded" flash before activation :D

    Yea, one extra action :eek:

    Swipe down the NC panel, then you would have to push the WeeFlashlight panel

    I don't have a notification center on my locksreen. I double tap the statusbar from my lockscreen for SpringFlash. Yes, it double flashes but I've never had it crash or go crazy.

    I have IntelliScreeX so I have it on my lock screen but WeeFlashlight doesn't always work on the lock screen. I press the button and it says on but I have to turn it on and off a couple times, hide the NC or unlock and lock the phone and then it might work. Otherwise it works fine all the time when not on the lock screen.

    I agree. For a worthless app/tweak no less.

    WeeFlashlight for NC is flawless and easy to use....except for the super lazy apparently.

    Thats actually 2. I would have to unlock the phone(maybe passcode also) and then pull down the slow nc and then hit the button.

    Now I wake phone and tap both volume buttons.

    Um actually not super lazy. I just like the idea of software developers putting out quality software.

    It's actually very handy to have a tweak that works with Activator. I often need to use the light when I have only one hand and it's far easier with this tweak.

    I don't think it's ridiculous to want to activate the light from the lockscreen.

    I use activator so I can do a short hold of the power button to use the flashlight. That's not lazy, it's just convenient when it's dark and I have things in my hands etc.

    I deleted Springflash after experiencing the hesitation glitch. WeeFlash FTW.
