BeamWidgets – Toggle Desire LED
Ever needed a little bit of light? Don’t carry a torch around with you? Thought you’d only ever use the LED on your phone for flash when taking photos? Think again!
If you want to make use of the LED on your HTC Desire, but don’t want to launch an application every time you want to turn on the light, XDA forum member f3d0r has started coding a widget collection – and one of them is a flashlight widget.
Instead of taking up space in your app drawer, BeamWidget sits nicely on one of your homescreens with a pretty icon to boot and all you need to do is toggle on – or toggle off.
Root is not required.
For the download link and to keep yourself updated on the widget collection, check out the forum thread.

This year, cardboard returned...
