    It was just on the news that the top 10 flash light apps are not safe. What is a safe one to use. Thanks for any help. :)

    iPhone already has a flashlight. You don't need an app.

    Those new items had something to do with third-party flashlight apps being rumored to harvest/transmit personal data from Android phones to overseas developers.

    Story debunked here. Stupid story got picked up by news outlets.

    When I first saw "flashlight" I thought they were worried about phones catching on fire in pockets.
