It’s my opinion that lighting up a dark room shouldn’t be hard or slow, and it certainly shouldn’t drain your battery of all its power. I made it my mission to find the brightest flashlight apps that could turn my device into a beacon in the night – something insanely powerful so I would never need an actual flashlight again. In the process of researching, I found a website called AppGrooves with a top 10 list of the best flashlight apps out there. I’ll link it below so you can check it out if you want.
As I explored these apps, I discovered three that totally blew me away, and I wanted to share them with you! With these apps, you can actually make your phone seem like it’s a professional flashlight like the Fenix, ShadowHawk or Atomic Beam flashlights. If you’re like me and you never want to spend time in the dark if you can help it, then you need to check these out!
Signal an Emergency with Flashlight
This is not just a normal flashlight, it can actually be used to save you in an emergency situation. I didn’t really believe this myself until I experienced the power of the flashlight first-hand. It comes with an SOS option for times of duress, so you can use the universal Morris Code to potentially save your own life if the need should arrise! You can also set it up to strobe, which could be a fun party tool, or activate it during an early morning jog so other people are made aware of your position.
While this app does come with an SOS option, it isn’t one of those bulky, rugged flashlights like those you’d buy at an Army Navy store. Flashlight is designed for your convenience, so it’s easy to access and easy to use; it just happens to have a great safety feature too!
Go Off-the-Grid with High Powered Flashlight
With High Powered Flashlight, no internet connection is needed to access a strong, powerful light that will brighten any room! It’s a great tool for campers or hikers – basically, anyone, like me, who enjoys spending time outdoors. What’s really great about it is that High-Powered Flashlight works just like tactical flashlights, including LED and strobe light distress signals in 10 different frequencies. I really think you’ll find the built-in compass incredibly useful for navigating the dark, so you always know where you’re going.
From my observation, users love the great LED light that High Powered Flashlight emits, but a few people have pointed out that there is no way to turn the flashlight sound off. The flashlight will click while you choose the setting you want – just like a manual, hand-held flashlight would. It’s a small inconvenience if you need absolute silence, but it does make the experience more true-to-life!
Save Battery Life with Light
Light, the app, gives you access to all the bright lights and strobe patterns you could ever need on an incredibly straightforward interface. It’s incredibly easy to use, which is perfect if you want a flashlight that is totally foolproof. You can even double tap to turn the screen on or off, which will save you precious battery life if you’re using the flashlight outdoors and need to conserve energy.
The iPhone Light app does include ads – I mean, it’s totally free, so this makes sense. On the plus side, they are very easy to get rid of forever with a small, one-time purchase. With the literal push of a button, you can finally read menus in dimly lit restaurants!
Don’t get stuck without a light when you need it most – we’ve all been there and it’s the actual worst! Instead, make sure you have the strongest, brightest flashlight and flashing strobe to illuminate a room or get attention fast. There are so many flashlight options to choose from that it can be overwhelming, but with these three great picks, I promise you’ll never want any other flashlight again.
I am interested in all things technology, especially automation, robotics and tech that helps change how society will live in the future.
