BrightLight turns your phone into a flashlight: for touchscreen and non-touch phones

BrightLight flashlight application turns your mobile phone into a torch
Are you lost in the dark?

When you launch BrightLight, it switches the flash led of your phone camera on.

BrightLight is designed for touchscreen Nokias, but it also works on non-touchscreen phones. On my non-touch Nokia N78 only part of the user interface of BrightLight shows, but that doesn't stop the program from switching the light on.

To exit the program on a non-touch phone, just push the right softkey or the red hangup button. This will exit BrightLight and switch off the camera light.

BrightLight doesn't work on every phone with a led flash. For example, it failed to run on my old Nokia 6120 Classic. If BrightLight doesn't work on your phone, or if you want to use your display as a torch instead of your camera led, try Light Control.

Warning: Keeping the light on for too long may damage the led on some phones. Use at your own risk. I'm not responsible for what you do with your phone.

UPDATE: Now there's a version of BrightLight for non-touch phones too.
