APP OF THE DAY: Flashlight 7

Turn your phone into fully functional flashlight

Flashlight 7
Cost: Free | Developer: Gergely Orosz | Platform: Windows Phone 7 | Version: 4.4.0.0 | 5 MB |

Normally if you get lost in the dark, you’d find yourself blindly fumbling around for a light switch.

But with Flashlight 7, you can turn your phone into fully functional flashlight that can guide you through the darkness.

The main draw of the app is the non-flickering LED light it provides, and brightness can be easily adjusted by swiping up or down the screen.

Other more amusing features of the app include lighting based on a police siren, kaleidoscope, and hypnosis pattern, as well as a mood light.

Pros: A free and functional flashlight on your phone.

Cons: App only works with phones that have LED flash and not Xenon flash.

Verdict: You won’t be afraid of the dark anymore with Flashlight 7.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
