I have only had my samsung exhibit 2 4G for a few days and overall I am very happy with it. Especially happy with the new $30 per month prepaid plan from Walmart! Anyway, I cannot find a single flashlight app on the android market that will light up the camera led flash. Seems to be a hardware issue or the phone is too new for developers to start including.
Has anyone found a working flashlight app for the exhibit 2 4G?
I've just released Tiny Flashlight v22.214.171.124, which has full support for Samsung Exhibit 2. You can check it here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.devuni.flashlight
Update: The android market server has not updated yet. You can also download the latest version from: http://slideme.org/application/flashlight-1
Just updated Tiny Flashlight from the Android Market. Works great, thanks doink123!
First flashlight app that works with the LED, I tried @ least a dozen, good app thanks
ooooh so cool. just downloaded and love! thanks for posting!!!
Be aware of the permissions that you are giving when you download a multitude of these flashlight apps. In the permissions most of them are asking for you to allow them to take pictures AND videos from the camera whenever they want to. Go look right now. Be aware of what you download. Why does a flashlight app need to TAKE pictures and video whenever they want?
On most devices the camera LED (flash) is directly connected to the camera hardware and in order to access the LED you need the camera permission. Thats all. You can read more about the permissions used by Tiny Flashlight in the app description here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.devuni.flashlight
I understand it's needing to control the camera. But Tiny Flashlight also wants "full Internet access". I can't think of any legitmate reasons for that.
Tiny Flashlight is showing ads inside the app. They are loaded from internet.
