[prMac.com] Huntington, New York - DVMagic Studios, Inc. has announced an update to its popular FlashLight SD iOS application. Completely rewritten, this new version continues to enhance its feature set with additional clipart that can now be copied to the device pasteboard (aka clipboard) for use with eMail, MMS messaging and any other iOS app that supports the pasting of images.
This is one handy little application that you will use over and over again. It is priceless for locating keys or keyholes in the dark as well as entering into dark areas, finding items in pocketbooks, blackouts, camping, just about anyplace where a little bit of light is needed. FlashLight temporarily suspends the iPhone's internal sleep timer so that it will not dim or turn off the display until you exit the application. This is desirable as you will not have to repeatedly touch the screen to stop the iPhone from dimming while you are trying to use the Flashlight.
Flashlight: In FlashLight mode, you can turn on the built-in Flash (if present) and a plain white screen (or a variation of colors and images you choose).
Shapes: In Shapes mode, you can choose a SHAPE from the Shapes Theme Library. Shapes can be displayed or flashed. You can even adjust the speed of the flashing Shape. It is a great way to help friends or family locate you in a crowd. Simply select a shape, return to the FlashLight screen and hold the phone above your head - making it easier to find you. Great for concerts too!
ClipArt: Since FlashLight SD has so much Clip Art, wouldn't it be fun to be able to use them in your eMails or MMS messages? We think so and made it easy for you to copy any included shape (clipart) and be able to paste it into any iOS application that supports the pasting of images (eMail, MMS, Facebook, Pages, Numbers, etc. all support this feature). Simply press the Copy button and select what size you want the Clip Art image.
Note: Approximate file sizes are noted next to export each option. The actual clipart file size will most times be smaller than estimated.
NiteLight: In NightLight mode, you can play songs from your music list (for 1 to 30 minutes) as your screen brightness slowly dims.
TAXI: When selected, this SHAPE displays a flashing TAXI image and its reverse image as the flashing SHAPE.
Please note that if the SOS function is active, predefined shapes are not displayed or available.
SOS/Help: There is also an SOS/Help button that flashes Call for Help on a bright red screen if you are in trouble. If there is no cell service, the flashing message iPhone can be laid in the back window of a car to attract assistance. The SOS/Help message can now be edited to display a custom message of up to 4 lines of 7 characters per line. Predefined messages are available for Medical, Fire and Police.
Colors: Choose a solid color and adjust the shade slider for color saturation level.
