    Great find! This app is perfect.

    Odd that the developer is listed at Motorola though. Motorola doesn't make apps AFAIK. Anybody know what the deal is with that?

    It appears to be legit from Motorola. There is a license agreement/EULA when using it the first time.

    It's not a complicated App to make, so I'm guessing Motorola just had one or two of it's software developers do it. The reason people hadn't done it before was because they were unsure how to leverage the Camera's LED, but for Motorola it was easy because they designed it.

    Yeah, it seems to be Motorola for real, but it's literally the ONLY app on the Android Market made my Motorola. Kinda strange that this is their debut app. It is a good app, at least.

    One thing to keep in mind is that the current usage of the LED will likely affect the battery pretty quickly. These multi-chip LEDs require a large heat sink to use them at full intensity over long periods of time. I wouldn't consider using the LED for long periods of time. Emergency and finding keys, but not for a novelty flashlight for more than a minute or 2.

    I work doing some electronic engineering, but have not studied enough about these LEDs, but most flashlights that use the high output LEDs like the Lumiled and others that I have looked at use large heat sinks.

    The onboard flash LED is used for flash by spiking a voltage to it for a very short duration so there is likely very little heat sinking needed. LEDs can withstand voltage spikes without being destroyed. I wouldn't be surprised if this app will void the warranty if you complain the LED burned out.

    That said, I have downloaded it and will use it in an emergency or for no more that 20-30 seconds if I can help it. Maybe a minute.

    If the app really is made my Motorola, I highly doubt that using it voids the warranty.
