S. M. von der Ohe has been programming and a computing science enthusiast for over half a decade. He also has a great interest in software.

Flashlight apps are useful for many reasons, from finding your way around at night, to sending signals, to enjoying your favorite concert. Here is a list of the top 5 flashlight apps available on android. I have tried to choose a variety of unique and diverse qualities in all of these apps. These apps are all available on the Google Play Store with links to their listings so feel free to try them out yourself.

1. Bright Light Flashlight

Price: Free

Type of Flashlight: Camera flash and On-screen

Play Store Rating: 4.9 ★★★★★

Bright Light Flashlight is a simple, free flashlight app created by a small development team based out of Canada. Both the Camera flash and on-screen flashlights are able to go to your device's maximum brightness. Bright Light has a very intuitive user interface and navigation. There are also quite a few useful features such as choosing various colors for the on-screen flashlight and using the camera flashlight at the same time as other apps, but not so many features that it is overwhelming. I would recommend this app to anyone as a good general purpose flashlight app.

2. Flashlight - LED Torch Light

Price: Free

Type of Flashlight: Camera flash and On-screen

Play Store Rating: 4.6 ★★★★★

Flashlight - LED Torch Light is an elegant, free flashlight app with all the basic features the average user would need. Out of the apps listed, this one definitely has the most atheistic user interface and has above average navigation. As well, it includes a few useful features including a Morse code SOS transmitter and a strobe feature. I would recommend this app to anyone who wants a stunning user interface and basic functionality.

3. Flashlight

Price: Free

Type of Flashlight: Camera flash and On-screen

Play Store Rating: 4.6 ★★★★★

Flashlight is a jam packed, free flashlight app with all the features most users would ever need. It is one of the most rich app on the Google Play Store in useful features, without being over whelming. It includes useful functions for anything from camping to dance parties, with functions like a compass and custom Morse code transmitter, but the app is quite heavy on their advertising and require you to watch ads before using some of the features. I would recommend this app to any avid survivalist or anyone who wants lots of extra features in their flashlight app.

4. Super-Bright LED Flashlight

Price: Free

Type of Flashlight: Camera flash

Play Store Rating: 4.6 ★★★★★

Super-Bright LED Flashlight is a useful lightweight flashlight app. It has the smallest download size on this list and one of the smallest on the Google Play Store. Although it varies by device so that is not necessarily the case for your device. It is equipped with basic camera flash and strobe features. I would recommend this app to anyone who just wants a bare bones camera flash flashlight app.

5. Color Flashlight

Price: Free

Type of Flashlight: Camera flash and On-screen

Play Store Rating: 4.2 ★★★★☆

Color Flashlight is a free flashlight app with all the features almost any user would ever want. It is one of the top app on the Google Play Store in creative features, but it is a little bit over whelming. It has tons of functions available especially for the on-screen flashlight. Its biggest downside is that it is hard to navigate to see all of the features it has to offer and its user interface is sometimes a bit convoluted. I would recommend this app to anyone who wants lots of unique and interesting features.
