Fine Tune Your Device’s Flashlight with Adjustable Torch
You’ve no doubt seen those apps that allow you to use your rear-facing camera’s flash as a flashlight. However, one thing you’ve undoubtedly never seen is an app that allows you to fine tune its brightness and control exactly how much light is emitted. This is exactly what XDA Forum Member MohammadAG has done with his latest application Adjustable Torch.
Adjustable Torch is verified compatible with the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II, but it should be compatible with any phone that uses the file /sys/class/camera/flash/rear_flash. Even better than the app’s functionality itself, however, is how MohammadAG’s spirit of sharing. He has made his application open source under GPLv3 license so that other developers can learn from his app and incorporate similar functionality in their own apps.
If you wish to give this a try on your own device, head over to the application thread. And if you wish to see how MohammadAG did his magic, or if you wish to incorporate similar functionality into your own app, head over to his Github. Be sure to leave feedback in the thread after trying the app if you have a previously unsupported device.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
