    Hey guys,

    We've been working on a little hack to turn the camera flash on the iPhone 4 into a quick and convenient Flashlight. Here's a YouTube video:

    Power Light is now out and we're making it FREE!
    Download now for FREE

    Here is the app icon:

    And screen shots:

    If you enjoy Power Light, I'd really appreciate a review and a rating in iTunes/App Store and if you have any feedback, feel free to let me know in this forum.




    Thanks,

    Sherwin

    Awesome!

    Are you making an app for this? Why do you need my Device ID?

    This is great! :)
    Hope it gets in the app store (can't see a reason why it wouldn't.)

    Saw this coming from the moment they announced the led flash;). With all of the flashlight apps in the app store, it was a given.

    Does this use private APIs or will apps like this eventually make their way into the app store?

    I thought thats a standard feature or api that is available.. If so, then what comes next?

    iPhone 4 hacked to have a retina display? :D

    Maybe i'm wrong... :(

    Why is it bad to give out your UDID? Is there anything they can do with it? Just wondering because I have no idea.

    Unlikely. It's not like anyone can do much with your UDID except give you ad hoc apps.

    Well I'm not giving my UDID but that's how the enterprise app sharing works
    you give the dev a UDID and he can send you the app.
    There's even people who sell apps through paypal and do it this way so that Apple doesn't get a cut of their sales :eek:
