MotoTorch LED – LED Flashlight – My First Android Application

I have released my first Android application called MotoTorch LED.  It is designed for the Motorola Droid and Motorola Milestone and uses it’s camera LEDs as a flashlight.  It’s also has a widget that can be placed on one of the HOME screens.  A simple click on the widget will turn the LEDs on, and clicking it again will turn them off.  The widget can also turn off the screen when the LEDs are on.

This application is free.

CURRENTLY, THE APP ONLY WORKS FOR THE MOTOROLA DROID, MOTOROLA MILESTONE, EVO 4G, DROID X, DROID 2, DROID Incredible, AND GOOGLE NEXUS ONE.  IT DOES NOT WORK FOR ANY OTHER PHONE(TO MY KNOWLEDGE).

For the app to work on the EVO 4G, DROID Incredible, and Nexus One, they have to be running Android 2.2.  The app will not work on the device if the device is running Android 2.1.

NOTE:  As of version 3.0, I have added support for Android 2.2.  It is possible that MotoTorch LED will not be locked to the DROID and Milestone anymore.  It may work on all future 2.2 devices.  If you have a device that it now works on, please let me know so I can add it to the list of supported devices.

If you are using a leaked ROM, it should now work.  IF IT DOES NOT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT ROM YOU ARE RUNNING.  EITHER POST A COMMENT HERE OR SEND ME AN EMAIL.

These ROMs have been confirmed to work:

CyanogenMod 6.0 RC2
LithiumMod
Bugless Beast
Simply Stunning
Sapphire 1.0.0

IF YOU HAVE AN ISSUE, GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST.  IF YOUR PROBLEM ISN’T COVERED, EITHER POST IN THE COMMENTS HERE, OR SEND ME AN EMAIL.  If you don’t email me, I can’t fix the issue. You can send an email directly from your phone.  At the bottom of the application listing on the Android Market, there is a button for “Send email to developer”.  Click that, choose your email, then send me an email.

Features:

1. Uses both a widget and a normal application to turn on the LEDs as a flashlight.

2. The widget icon will change depending on whether the LEDs are on or not.

3. The application will allow you to configure whether you want the screen to dim or not.

4. The application will allow you to use the LEDs as a strobe light.

5. The application will allow you to use the LEDs as a MORSE CODE sender, implementing the international Morse protocol.

Version 3.6 (8/24):

1.  Fixed issue that caused the app to not work on the Droid X running Android 2.2.

Version 3.5 (8/12):

1.  Fixed issue that caused the app to not work on the DROID 2.

Version 3.4 (8/04):

1.  Fixed issue that caused the app to not work correctly on JRummy’s LithiumMod ROM.

Version 3.3 (8/03):

1.  Fixed issue that cause the app to not work correctly on the Simply Stunning and Bugless Beast ROMs.

2.  Fixed issue that would cause the app to crash when the orientation changed.  I have made it so that the app only supports portrait mode.  I didn’t see a need in supporting landscape mode.

Version 3.2 (7/31):

1.  Fixed issue with DROIDs running Android 2.2(rooted).

Version 3.1 (6/12):

1.  Fixed issue where non-2.2 DROIDs would see the 2.2 message.

2.  Fixed issue with permissions with the Donation version.

Version 3.0 (6/12):

1.  Fixed FC issues on Android 2.2.

2.  Added support for the Nexus One.  Also, it may be possible that this will now work on all future 2.2 devices.

3.  Fixed the issue where the widget was always running in the background.  It should no longer always show up in Task Killers.

Version 2.8(12/14):

1.  Fixed issue where widget icon would get reset back to the default icon when exiting the application.

2.  Added option to turn “Torch” off when exiting the application

Version 2.7(12/11):

1.  Added HELP menu that will open to my website.

2.  Changed the “Automatic Brightness” popup display only the first time.

3.  Added option to turn on LEDs when the application opens.  (Application Settings menu)

4.  Moved “Torch” settings to menu.  (Torch Settings menu)

Version 2.6(12/04):

1.  The widget icon is now configurable.  Use the MENU button in the application to select the icon for the widget.

2.  Fixed issue where using the widget of certain other apps could cause the LEDs to come on.

3.  Added a Disclaimer when opening the app.  It should only be shown once.  If you accept, it will not show again.

4.  Added a message when Automatic Brightness is enabled.

5.  The “Dim Screen” slider is disabled when the “Dim Screen” checkbox is unchecked.

Version 2.5(12/02):

1.  Changed the Widget icon.

2.  Added the ability to dim the screen while the LEDs are on.  This includes having a slider to specify the brightness of the screen.

3.  Fixed “B” “D” Morse Code bug.

4.  The “Dim Screen” and “Turn Off Screen” are now disabled if Automatic Brightness is turned on.  Automatic Brightness overrides both of these settings.  Currently there is no way for me to disable Automatic Brightness programmatically.  It seems to have been left out of the SDK.

Version 2.4(11/27):

1.  Fixed issue with moving to/from landscape while Strobe or Morse Code was on.

Version 2.3(11/27):

1. Now supports landscape mode.

2. Added numeric labels to the strobe sliders.

Version 2.2(11/26):

1. Strobe and Morse Code now run on their own threads. This means that there are now Start/Stop buttons.

2. Strobe now has 2 sliders that allow the duration and delay to be configurable. These can be moved while the strobe is on to see the values changed on the fly.

3. Changed the checkbox for the “Torch” section to be more descriptive.

I made tons of changes to how the settings are saved. I hope this will have fixed the issue with it losing the screen timeout. If it continues to happen, let me know.

NOTE: If you are running a DROID and Android 2.2, it should work now.  I have tested it on CyanogenMod 6.0 RC2 and it worked.  However, I cannot guarantee it will work on all leaked/custom ROMs.   If it does not work on the ROM you are running, let me know the ROM and I will see what I can do.

NOTE: The Dim Screen only works from the application.  It currently does not work from the widget.  This is due to a bug in Android 2.0.

NOTE: If your screen brightens when you turn on the LEDs, then you have Automatic Brightness enabled, and it’s doing it’s job.  It was designed to use light sensors to determine whether to dim or brighten the screen.  The more light the sensors detect, the brighter the screen gets.  I’ll let you take a guess where 1 of the 2 sensors are……directly beside the LEDs.  So when you turn on the LEDs, the light causes the sensors to think it needs to brighten the screen.

NOTE: To change the widget icon, open the application, then hit the MENU button on the phone. This will bring up the menu in the application. Choose “Select Widget Icon”, then choose the icon you want to use.

NOTE: To install the widget, Long Press on an open space on a HOME screen, choose “Widgets”, then choose “MotoTorch LED”.

NOTE: For those that say that this application “starts in the background”, it does not.  The application is not running.  It’s the widget that is running in the background.  This is what Android allows.  The widget is running because it needs to constantly check to see if you have turned the LEDs on from the application so it can change it’s icon.  This is allowed by Android, and is actually the default functionality of a widget.

I have created a Google Wave for MotoTorch LED.  If you have Google Wave, you should be able to search for it and find it.

If you have “Barcode Scanner” or “ShopSavvy” installed , you can scan this QR-Code and it will take to you my app.  You can scan it directly from your monitor.

I have also added a Donation version of the app to the Market. If you would like to donate toward MotoTorch’s development, you can buy that version. BOTH VERSIONS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME. The free version is NOT limited in any way.

You can also donate using Paypal.

    Useful and clever app. Thanks! Two comments:

    First, I’m using a Droid, and every time I start the app, it tells me that I have automatic brightness enabled, blah, blah. Perhaps it would suffice to only show this message to the user once?

    Second, I have a 2nd flashlight app (G1 style, which works by simply making your screen white and bright). I find both useful in different circumstances. Is it possible to add the LCD light functionality to your app, so I don’t need two flashlight apps?

    Thanks again.

  21. Ryan Alford December 10, 2009 9:38 am  Reply

    I have had another request about making the automatic brightness popup act the same as the disclaimer where you only have to acknowledge it first. I will be adding that in my next update.

    I doubt I will be adding that LCD flashlight to my app.

    I like all of the option settings, but cannot get the strobe, flashlight, nor Morse code functions to work on my Motorola Droid 2.0. The only function which seems to work is turn on/off LED.

  23. Ryan Alford December 20, 2009 10:46 am  Reply

    Are you opening the application? or using the widget? The widget only controls the “flashlight”, while the application controls all three. You should be able to just push the button and it will work.

    Hi,

    Could you tell me which method you used to turn off the screen? any API except for setting the screen timeout within settings.system?
    Thank you a lot.

    @Vivi Wu,

    I use the Settings.System.setInt() to set the screen timeout. That’s how I turn the screen off. I don’t know of another way of doing it.

    @Richard,

    Simply turn on the “Torch”, then open the camera application. The Torch will stay on while other applications open.

    Ryan,

    I understand if you would like to keep it proprietary, but would you mind posting the API call you are using to turn on the LED in MotoTorch? I read some forum posts implying that originally you were using the FLASH_MODE_ON setting of the camera’s autofocus, but that someone had discovered another way (you had alluded to the NotificationManager). Would you mind posting the gist of what you ended up with?

    Thanks,
    Laron

  29. Ryan Alford January 4, 2010 11:59 am  Reply

    I have added a QR code that will allow you to scan it and it will go to the MotoTorch entries on the Marketplace.

    You will need “Barcode Scanner” or “ShopSavvy”, both are free. ShopSavvy works the best.

    Simply scan the QR code, and ShopSavvy will do what the barcode tells it to do. In “Barcode Scanner”, you will need to click “Open browser” after the barcode is scanned.

    Also, remember, this is for the Motorola Droid and Motorola Milestone phones ONLY. If you are using any other phone, I can not guarantee it to work. It also requires Android 2.0 or higher. So if you are using Android 1.5 or 1.6, the app will not show up in the Marketplace.

    @Pablo

    short answer… I don’t know.

    long answer….it’s possible. I have no idea whether my application puts additional strain on the LEDs. LEDs normally have a life of about 50,000 hours. That means they are would have to leave them on constantly for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for more than 2 years.

    I don’t worry about it. Sure it’s possible that it could damage the LEDs, but it’s also possible that a meteor will land on my head and kill me when I walk out of my house in the morning.

    I am unable to make MotoTorch LED work on the Nexus One. There is only one way of turning on the LEDs without initializing the camera. If it doesn’t work on other hardware, there isn’t anything I can do about it.

    It’s because of the Nexus One hardware, not because of Android 2.1.

    Would you be willing to share how you access the LED?

    We develop Barcode Scanner and having the LED (not flash) on would help scanning. a user requested this: http://code.google.com/p/zxing/issues/detail?id=320

    I’m not sure that ‘torch’ is the right parameter setting and we don’t have a phone with flash or LED to test on.

    The “torch” setting may work on other phones, but it does not work on the Motorola Droid/Milestone as the phone does not support that flash mode. The phones would have to support that flash mode for it to be possible.

    If you can send me an email to ryanalford843 at gmail dot com, I can tell you how I did it on the Droid/Milestone.

    Hi!

    I habe two questions:
    First, the dim function never works… also the “Turn off screen” never does. What do you mean by starting as application? maybe that’s what I am doing wrong. I use Milestone.
    Secondly, I read in the specs that the milestone has a “Tricolor LED”. Does that mean it is possible to change the color of the flashlight? That would be sooo awsome!

    Your MotoLED Application Rocks!

    Just recently the proud owner of a Milestone and your app is a god-send.

    Thank you SO much.

    And then to whether the LED would wear out prematurely?
    Not very likely as it’s two high bright LEDs likely the type that consumes ~10mA to 13mA each (at most) and those kind of LEDs are expect to last 70k to 100k hours if not over stressed (over-current etc)

    However a LED will have usable light long after the rated time as the time rating given is when the LED output is expected to have dropped by 30%… thus after the 70k to 100k hours the light intensity would still be 70% of the as new output.

    Simply turn on the LED (using the widget or the application), then start up the camera. This may only work for the native camera application. I have been told that some third party camera applications cause the LED to turn off when they are opening.

    This is not a complaint, just an idea

    Would it be possible to make the widget available on the lock screen? The reason I ask is because I have a weird lock pattern that usually takes two or three tries and its kind of a pain to have to unlock my phone just to shut off the light.

    Another way to make it simple to shut off is to have an option to shut it off via the camera button (but not turn on because that would probably end up in drained batteries)

    I love the app so far, keep up the good work

    I have thought putting the widget on the lock screen. I know it’s possible since there are a couple of apps that put things on the lock screen. However, there is almost no documentation on how to actually do it.

    Hi, just installed the latest update for this app, and am running the leaked Froyo build for the Droid. Instead of turning the LED on, it seems to initialize the camera. It makes the lens mechanism ticking sound just as if the camera app started, but doesnt actually do anything. Any ideas?

    That is definitely an issue with the ROM. Seems that it is misinterpreting what I am doing(though I am using the camera, it should initialize it). I have put a link to a ROM that does work.

    Some seem to think it’s the theme’s that are causing applications to fail. MotoTorch is not the only application that doesn’t work on some ROMs.

    why not re-release the 3.0 on the marlet for droids with froyo. it works. is there something that was wrong with it?

    jeeze how long of a message do i have to leave…

    You posted 3 comments in 3 minutes. I am not God. I can’t read minds and I don’t get emails when I get comments(WordPress won’t send emails even though my email is setup). Post once and I will see it.

    Now to your question. Version 3.0 didn’t work either. Version 2.8 did(sometimes). However, 2.8 didn’t work on a lot of the current ROMs. I also cannot release an application to a specific device. So I can’t simply release one version to rooted DROIDs and another version to other devices. Rooted DROIDs are using Android version 2.2, which is the same as many Nexus Ones. I can only release to specific OS versions.

    So here’s how it is:

    version 3.1(and 3.0): works on stock 2.1 and stock 2.2, and as of right now, it does not work on any of the 2.2 ROMs.

    version 2.8: works on stock 2.1. works on some 2.2 ROMs. does not work on stock 2.2.

    As you can see, none of the releases work completely on all versions, which is what I am working toward. I am going to be working on another release today to try to fix the issue with the rooted DROIDs running ROMs that it currently does not work on.

    I’ve actually been told by one person running a rooted DROID that I shouldn’t even support the ROMs. You downloaded the ROM on your own. It’s not supported by Google or any of the phone manufacturers. You knew the risks of applications not working before you rooted your DROID and loaded a custom ROM. I don’t have to support ROMs, but I am taking my personal time to support them as much as possible even though I don’t have my DROID root so I have absolutely nothing to test with.

    There is no stock 2.2 for the DROID. Motorola hasn’t released it yet. If you are running 2.2, then you are running a ROM that was modified to run on the DROID.

  90. Mainism June 18, 2010 7:54 pm  Reply

    Rian, I am running the leaked stock 2.2 Fr rom droid-life.com – it may not be final but it is non-modified stock.

    Every version is loaded into Read Only Memory (rom) even from verizon and motorolla.

    Regatdless of that hooha, look at the commemts on market every droid on 2.2 is not working with the 3.x versions. All I’m saying is that is going to be a growing part of your user base.

    I am fine running the 2.8 version, but how do the rest find out about the problem and find the file?

    The point is, you are not running a supported version of the OS. This is a chance that you take when loading custom OS’s onto your device.

    I can’t possibly support every custom ROM out there. It would be impossible. Most of the time, it’s just issues with the ROMs that cause applications(like mine) to not work. Once those issues are fixed in the ROMs, the applications start working again.

    Can you better explain “doesn’t work”? I have a Nexus One running the stock 2.2(FRF57?… not the latest version that was released over the weekend), and it works fine with a couple of bugs.

    Ryan, my point is it its a leaked version off the official update I am running, but regardless Every droid with froyo is not working, not one”rom”or another, why not provide a back-link here for all those on the market who would be happy to run the old version.

  95. Ryan Alford June 23, 2010 11:37 am  Reply

    @Mainism

    Simply loading the FRF57(or FRF72) build onto your DROID will almost certainly cause problems with apps. It is basically like an “alpha” version of the release. This is why every DROID running a leaked 2.2 is having the problem. The release is just not stable enough and Motorola hadn’t had time to fix issues.

    I have a link to the old version on the AndroidForums….

    I know you get inundated with all of these people asking for support and it can be a constant barrage answering the same questions over and over. However, I’m going to be that guy and ask one more time, “Will you have the source available any time soon?”

    I am new to developing Android and the LED flashlight is the first thing I looked for on my LG Ally. Nothing has been made available and I don’t see anything on the horizon.

    I’m not asking you to update your app or to fix it for me. In fact, I kind of look forward to learning how to fix it myself. However, your source would be very helpful since I am having a hard time figuring out how it is that one accesses the LED (via the camera, it appears).

    I think I read somewhere that Froyo 2.2 has better access to the LED, but my rooted Ally only has 2.1 and I am nervous about upgrading the OS (if that is even possible).

    Please let me know what your plans are for the source…..and if it won’t be made public anytime soon, I would REALLY appreciate an emailed jar file to look over and review.

    First I’d like to thank you for making this program. It’s extremely useful and something like it should have come preloaded. Second, I have an idea for expanding the program if you ever find yourself with the free time and inlination to do so.

    The morse code function on this app is fun but unless you find yourself in an emergency situation signaling to the coast guard it’s unlikely you will encounter anyone who can read it. What I propose is adding an interface that allows you to center the camera on a distant blinking light and translate morse code to text by analizing the video feed. A box superimposed in the middle of the camera view would allow the program to only worry about the area within it to save processing effort and program complexity. Is this possible? I have no idea but it seems logically sound. What would the use of it be? It would open up another means of communication, a fun and un usual one, and communication is what smartphones are all about.

    I don’t know how practical this would be as I’ve never programmed for android, but I’m hoping it can be done. You seemed the logical person to propose this idea to since it’s an extension of what mototorch already does and would give the app far greater (and unique) functionality.

    I had an idea: it would be nice that it appears a message or an icon in the notification area when the LED is ON, that can help us not to forgot to switch it OFF (because when you have a protection case, you may not see that the LED is ON).

    Maybe it would be easier if you check the manufacturer for motorola instead or have you seen issues with this not being set as expected in some of the ROMs?

    That way it shouldn’t keep breaking as each Motorola device gets updated to 2.2.

    I was thinking about that. However, I was hoping that some Motorola devices would be able to do the normal way of turning on the LEDs instead of the hack. HTC devices don’t have a problem once updated to 2.2(Nexus One, EVO, Incredible). None of the Motorola devices work unless you jump through hoops with the camera…which I haven’t been able to get to work.

    I guess it must be the processor(OMAP vs. Snapdragon).

    While it may work for you, it doesn’t work for others. If you look at the bottom of the Market description, you will see a version number. Beside the version number, you will see some text. This text indicates what I have fixed.

    4 weeks ago, I released an update to fix issues that caused the app not to work on various custom ROMs that are available for the DROID.

    3 weeks ago, I released an update for the application to work on the DROID 2 and removed the TOAST notifications when using the widget. Since the DROID 2 had just came out, I had no idea whether it would work or not. When I got emails about it not working, I fixed it.

    2 weeks ago, I released an update for the application to work on the DROID X running Android 2.2. I didn’t find out until recently that the application stopped working once a DROID X phone got updated to 2.2. It works fine on a DROID X running Android 2.1.

    These are fixes to help make the app work for as many people as possible. You are not required to update.

    And yes, it’s very obnoxious of you to complain about me being too helpful. If you don’t like your applications to be fixed on-time, then uninstall my application.

    Hi Ryan,

    Because you had trouble getting the LED working at the Milestone 2.

    You shout check out the app “TeslaLED”.

    It lets you select 4 different LED Modes.
    2 of them are Working at Milestone 2

    “Motorola Droid” – Just turns on the LED at normal level
    “Motorola Droid Froyo” – Turns on the LED at super-Brigt Mode (Does trigger the Autofocus Sound (Seems to use the Camera App))
    “HTC” – Not working at MS2
    “Standart Froyo” – Not working, triggers the autofocussound

    What would be really cool to let you select the method inside the app, and have a widget which preferable does have the ability to select the primary (medium) mode and in addion a secondary mode (Super-bright)

    I’d also like to express that most individuals that find themselves without having health insurance usually are students, self-employed and people who are without a job. More than half on the uninsured are really under the age of Thirty five. They do not feel they are wanting health insurance because they are young plus healthy. Their income is often spent on real estate, food, as well as entertainment. Many people that do work either 100 % or in their free time are not provided insurance through their work so they go without due to rising valuation on health insurance in the United States. Thanks for the ideas you share through your blog.

    This really is acquiring a bit a lot more subjective, but I considerably prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has much more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you rapidly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and yet another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate about exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also fantastic enjoyable, letting you locate others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will likely be relieved to know it is possible to avoid the public from seeing your private listening habits in the event you so decide on.

The Morse code function is a great idea and a potential lifesaving feature. Thanks for 3 years of lighting the way, hopefully there will be an update soon to make it work on my device!

    First, I want to agree with everyone on how useful this app is. I used it frequently on my Droid X. (I did not even know there was a donate version until I came to your page today, but I will certainly buy it now, just to thank you for how useful this app has been. You should make a note of it in the free app’s description). I got a Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx about a week ago and MotoTorch LED was one of the first apps I downloaded. Unfortunately, as you are aware, it did not work.

    I came to your website and there is an entry under “Links” on the right side of the page that says, “MotoTorch LED – Source Code”, but the link is totally broken. The href attribute on the link is http://MotoTorchLED'sSourceCodeHasGonePublic, which is not a well formed URL for the public web. Is this supposed to resolve to something within your site, or did you perhaps miss adding a TLD?

    thanks,
