Default Idea for an app (Flashlight)

Please Login to Remove!

Not sure where to best get this idea out, but has anyone developed a flashlight app, that uses the camera flash, rather than a white touch screen as the light source? I noticed that the flash comes on and stays on for a few seconds, while focusing. This light amount is awesome. If there was a way to keep it on, it would be a great LED light source, for an emergency. I am sure it would be a large batt drain, but in a pinch. The light amount really is amazing. Just throwing that out there.

This can be accomplished with the Video Camera.

Wirelessly posted (Bold 9000)

On the bold you can go to the video camera options and turn on the light.
