The Gearhead column has been keeping tabs on the best Android apps for IT workers. Here's the cream of the crop
You need a flashlight -- an app that uses the screen or camera flash LED for task illumination -- but how necessary is an app that turns your $200 or $300 smartphone into a $6 flashlight? The answer: Incredibly necessary because what's always in your pocket? A flashlight? Nope. Your smartphone? Yep. My favorite free flashlight, because it's simple, is Mag Flashlight, which looks like what it claims to be, a Maglite Flashlight. Click the on-screen on/off switch to (doh) switch the light on and off and click the Dimmer and Brighter labels on the onscreen flashlight to (doh, again) brighten and dim the light. Rating: 5 out of 5.
