  • 'TorchNC' Adds a Great-looking Flashlight Toggle to Notification Center


    For those of you that are tired of browsing the App Store for the perfect flashlight application, you can relax now – the jailbreak community has you covered. TorchNC is a new free widget for Notification Center by iOS developer ravirajm that allows you to toggle the rear-facing LED flash so it can be used as a flashlight when you need it.

    The widget’s style is modeled after the iOS 6-style share widgets that allow you to Post to Facebook or Tweet to Twitter. When you tap on the widget, your LED flash will illuminate and the widget’s text and objects will turn a yellow color to indicate that the light is turned on. When you tap it again, the LED flash will turn off and the text and objects will turn their original color to indicate that the light is turned off.

    You can enable and disable the widget at any time by simply dragging it in and out of the Notification Center widget group from the Notifications preferences pane. The tweak works with both iOS 5 and iOS 6.

    It’s a very simple and free flashlight alternative to an App Store application. It doesn’t come with ads, like a lot of free flashlight applications in the App Store do, and everyone can find a flashlight to be useful somehow in their daily lives. TorchNC has no options to configure, and you’ll find it in Cydia’s ModMyi repository today.

    Name: TorchNC
    Price: FREE

      Jailbreak has you covered. Unless of course you have a new fangled iPhone 5. Then of course you are still in jail and can't even easily toggle 4G or Wifi or really do anything that Apple hasn't figured out or wants you to do.

      I know WeeFlashLight does this since ever. But TorchNC looks a lot better, it is designed like the iOS 6 Twitter/Facebook widget.

      You need to go to Settings > General > Notifications > TorchNC > And Enable it there.

      Can this be made to run on the lockscreen? Currently I use activator to enable my torch just by holding down the Home button for slightly longer than normal for instant use. Nothing worse than unlocking this and opening this. Instant is best

      Yes you can but you have to add another tweak which I can say is well worth the money
      It's called Bulletin .99 cent's and allow's you to have your Nc in lock screen like lock info and intellascreenX .. You can just pull it down or have it as your lock screen.i haven't tried Torch yet but I will now.
