You know the bright light that flashes on the back of your BlackBerry Bold, Curve, or Tour whenever you take a photo or video footage? Well this light can actually be used for more than just a camera flash — it can be used as a flashlight thanks to this BlackBerry App!
The Flashlight One Touch uses your phone's video camera (without the recording turned on) and the light on the back of your phone to provide you with a handy flashlight. Once you download the app — which you can take for a trial run for free, or pay $3 for the full version — just open your video camera, click on the menu button and choose options. Then set "Video Light" to on and your light will always work when you open the video camera. To turn off the flashlight, just hit the back (or escape) key.
Also, turn off the Auto-Dim setting (in options). . . this does not affect your back light from going out.
