Shed a little light on things with Flashlight 7, now updated for Windows Phone 8

Flashlight 7 is a handy Windows Phone app that has been recently updated to Windows Phone 8. Flashlight 7 not only turns your Windows Phone screen into a flashlight but also utilizes the camera LED light to chase away the shadows.

The update, version 4.9, adds SOS LED support to the mix along with your standard flashlight feature using the LED or screen, a siren mode, a few color lights, the strobe light, a few mood lights, a kaleidoscope and a hypnosis screen. Some of the different light styles have directional arrows that pull up variations of the effects.

For example the arrows on the strobe light cycle through the various colored strobe lights available. Brightness for the lights can be adjusted by swiping up or down on the screen and you can turn off the lock screen in Flashlight 7's settings.

Flashlight 7 is a handy little app for your Windows Phone. We like it because not only can you use the screen to light things up but you can also be more discrete and just use the camera LED.

Flashlight 7 is a free app for your Windows Phone and you can snatch it up here at the Windows Phone Store.
