In this article, we are dealing with the most common problems with flashlight Android apps.
Thousands (if not millions) of cool Android apps allow us to make most of our Droids in ways we had never thought possible (before the era of Smartphone, of course).
One of such ways is turning our Android phone into a multi-function torch. This is possible thanks to hundreds of flashlight Android apps available.
Even though flashlight apps are generally great and very useful, they sometimes create problems and instead of facilitating our lives become a real pain in the neck.
Don't worry, though. InLoveWithAndroid.com is here to help you, so in this article we will deal with the most common flashlight Android app problems, offer possible solutions and review a few best flashlight apps. Let's begin!
The most often symptoms of problems with flashlight apps include:
There may be at least a few reasons for problems with flashlight Android apps.
I tested about 10 different Android phones with this problem and this is what I came up with:
If you have an in-built flashlight app, it's better to use it because a third-party flashlight app may interfere with the stock app. An in-built flashlight app almost never creates any problems. Here, you can see how an in-built flashlight app for my HTC One X looks like:
As you can see, this stock version of flashlight is not packed with tons of additional option,s but for me it's enough. I need a torch, not tons of light effects.
Some flashlight apps will not work on older Android versions (e.g. 1.5, 1.6, 2.0). When installing a new flashlight app, check in its description if it supports your version of Android.
This is how you can check your Android version (it may vary a little bit depending on the kind of Android phone you have).
Remember that it will be the best if you could have the latest Android version for phones installed.
It may happen that some app simply won't run on your device for no apparent reason. In such a case I always suggest trying a different app instead of looking for reasons (and wasting time) why THIS app doesn't work.
In some apps you have to specifically check LED if you want it to turn LED on. That's why if there are Settings in your flashlight app, look for LED settings and check LED.
Your device may go crazy if you install, let's say, 10 flashlight apps. Choose one (definitely not more than two).
Simple as it seems in most cases this solves most problems with Android. Here you can see my short video on how to restart your phone:
