Tip: Tiny Flashlight Adds Lock Screen Shake Feature for Quick Lighting Access


I’m not sure that I can even count all of the flashlight apps in the market these days (nor would I want to try), but one of them in particular has been downloaded somewhere between 10 and 50 million times. That app is called Tiny Flashlight. Now, normally we wouldn’t waste your time with a flashlight app, but this one just so happens to have been updated to version 4.0 within the last week. And in version 4.0 you get the handiest of features, which is the ability to activate the light with a simple shake at your lock screen. You will have to go into settings and manually tick the feature to “on,” but let me tell you, this sucker has come in handy more than a couple of times over the last few days. Just had to share.

    Tiny Flashlight requires too many permissions. 🙁

    I use this one: MEGA Flashlight

    Permissions: No need of phone calls, no need of system tools and no need of GPS location. 🙂

  • Oh yes, this is what I’ve been waiting for. Thanks for the help! I hope you will post exciting imformation more.

    Seems like some gripes with the permissions. What happened to picking and choosing the permissions of a certain app? Or was that built into a certain ROM? Agreed this should merely need LED access and hardware access to the accelerometer.

    I am shocked that this is being recommended Kellex, your recommendations are usually spot on but how can you explain the permissions? Would you please let us know what the logic was for this reccomendation? Maybe i’m missing the bigger picture…

  • thanks Kellex .. got the app this morning and have used it several times already. this is one of those “how did i live without this app” deals that you come across once in a great while.

    Funny Thing, after downloading and installing this it,  and wanted to try out the little “Lockscreen Feature” Only to find out “I Don’t Have a Lockscreen” since I had the phone I never gave it any thought, just figured it was a Rooted GN Thing! Gotta look into that 🙂

  • That is amazing. I absolutely love it!

  • would have lot to have had this while me and the rest of the pacific northwest was getting pounded by snow and ice and power outages
