NB: This app is for Nokia N8 with Symbian Belle only
The Xenon flash on the Nokia N8 doesn’t stay on for long and is inconvenient if you wish to use it as a torch. The picoBrothers developed a free app called Red light which keeps your Nokia N8 red light on the camera on, a substitute for a torch. Normally when you download a free app, there are ads involved in the app, users that have placed a comment at the Nokia Store all have different claims, such as this app is add free or the apps are annoying due to it leading to the web browser after being clicked, and also charging the user which is rather unsusual.
Although this is referred to as a torch, the light flashes therefore it would be appropriate to call it a strobe app. picoBrothers does have a another option for this app Red Light, an app that uses your as a flash light. Choose one colour or send an SOS!
Follow me tomorrow for another review of a flash light app review for the N8!
