Torchie

Volume Button Torch
3.2.1 for Android

The description of Torchie

Turn on/off super bright flashlight / LED / torch on your phone instantly by holding both volume buttons / keys together! It's quick, fast, innovative. It works in screen on, lock screen and screen off (when enabled from settings). Just works anytime! It makes you feel that you have a handy conventional battery operated torch with physical hardware button access! it's tiny, small, free and runs silently as a SERVICE. Absolutely no root required!

This app uses Accessibility services
Torchie requires a service to run in background to intercept PHYSICAL VOLUME BUTTON KEY presses. Since a normal 'Service' cannot intercept Hardware Key presses, an 'Accessibility Service' is needed for this purpose. It does not do anything apart from intercepting Volume Key presses! I promise!

ABOUT THE PERMISSION
"...Can observe the text you type and actions you do..."
Alas! It's threatening isn't it? Torchie needs permission to listen to your physical hardware (volume Button) Key presses only.
However if a phone has a physical keyboard, it is possible to intercept every key press (including Passwords etc). But, recent Android phones (except Blackberry Priv) have only three hardware physical keys i.e. one power button and two volume buttons. Actually, It is Android's flaw showing this buggy permission to you!

Also, Torchie does not have 'Internet Permission'. So it's impossible to send anything to anyone!

Torchie's source code is available here https://github.com/anselm94/Torchie-Android. You can go through every line of code!

Flashlight / torch / LED may turn on if you swipe to change volume in volume Panel. (Tip: Disable for screen on)
2. Screen off will not work by default
Torchie functionality is disabled by default in screen off, to prevent battery drain. Using in lock screen will not cause/accelerate battery drain. Advice is that using in lock screen is handy
