A Must have App
It's a Tiny but Useful app. I always install this first when changing Mobile or upgrade Android OS.
Other light apps are way too disco for me.
Not everyone dotes on gimmick-laden software. I like an app that does one thing, does it very well, and takes up very little space. I was slightly put off at first at having to download a separate component to change color/intensity of the back light, but it's logical if you think about it: chances are that you'll need the device for a quick temporary light, not for flashy colors and other fluff. If I have one suggestion, it's that the screen backlight have two brightness settings readily at hand, and that the app start at a lower setting. Maybe my backlight is unusually bright, but when I first turn OI Flashlight on in the darkness, I get a burst of white light that's rather dazzling.
Love it. Saved my life. I wouldn't have seen the land-shark had it not been for my own Open Source Flashlight. Thank You!
Living at the beach I need to worry most about bull sharks, not only can they live in fresh water for years on end, but apparently have started acclimating themselves to living OUT of water all the time as well, and you really need to be on your toes at all times to avoid becoming chum. I would be dead if it had not been for open intents flashlight. Not only do they not screw you with any add on spying programs, they actively try out their programs in every sort of situation, just to make sure it won't hang up or freeze in a crucial time. Like when walking my poor dogs late at night, I can hear the waves crashing on a clear night, what used to be a peaceful moment now could have me frozen like a tuna in headlights. No more worries for me! OI flashlights has given me peace. Inner peace all from an android program this small. What more could I ask for? (Your experience may differ from my own, we are after all our own unique flightless birds that love herring, and as such we each experience life differently from each other)

No excess permissions, and it just works
I love the no excess permissions (no ads, no internet, just a simple and lightweight flash). Works great on SGS 3. Had to turn on the LED flash in the settings/preferences menu (should be on by default, or two buttons on the screen, one for LED, and one for screen).
Works on newer phones
Didn't work on OG Moto Droid but works fine with HTC Rezound. Simple and no crazy permissions.
No adds, and no ridiculous permissions! Took a long time going through flashlight apps to find it. Thanks. Works great on HTC One! Simple flashlight app with option to use screen or camera LED. Both work great.
Works perfectly on my older Samsung galaxy s blaze, Sony Experia Z and Z1S. Did not work on my note 3. No special unnecessary permissions. Thanks for keeping it simple all around.
Finally a flashlight app that doesn't require a lot of unnecessary permissions. Thank u! UPDATE: The camera light does not work with the G3 yet. Hoping for an update,
Much better for my poop phone than the other 7 mb flashlight app I was using. One downside is that when the camera flash is on, the backlight is not automatically maxed out too.

Doesn't work on Galaxy Nexus
The LED doesn't turn on. Hope it is fixed soon. :)
Having browsed 10+ other flashlights in the store, it's so satisfying to find a real Open Source version that doesn't require a host of irrelevant permissions. This app requires just the permissions it need to control the camera flash. The other flashlight apps I found all wanted permission to connect to the Internet and to know my location — so they can display adds. The app worked perfectly on my Nexus 4.
Free, small, works great, no ads or scary permissions. My only complaint is that it maintains a black band that says "OI Flashlight" at the top of the screen, and it would be nice to have that area lit up, but with most free flashlight apps, that amount of space is going to be taken up with ads anyway.
Great and simple
The app does its job and only, and requires no additional permittions. Love it.
Loved this; doesn't work on new phone.
Has worked flawlessly and without spyware or ads for years, but camera flash does not light on Galaxy S6. It has its own flashlight, but I'd still like to use this trusted friend. (OK, heavy on the anthropomorphism.)
I love this app!
Just hope they would put a lockout option for the screen so my thumb or fingers wouldn't accidentally turn it off

Love it! Simple Effective Small
Minimal bells and whistles but that's what makes it great. Not only is it small to begin with you can "move to sd card" as well. Get color picker for one more nice option. Does what it says and doesn't bloat my internal memory.
I'm glad I installed this
Finally, a flashlight app with common sense requirements. Others require weird permissions (Full Internet Access, GPS). The Camera Flash works; you have to use the Menu key and go to Preferences to enable it.
So happy to find another useful app from OI that doesn't bombard me with useless permissions and ads, and it works perfectly. Thanks OI!

Works great on the transformer (no led flash). Other apps want crazy permissions, this one keeps it simple and does its job beautifully.
If You're Afraid at the dark. Afraid at the dark? Use OI flashlight and you see and you are not afraid anymore!
