Light Removed from App Store

Light It seems another application has been removed from the App Store. Erica Sadun’s Light, was officially removed from the App Store today. This was confirmed even further by Erica’s tweet, “RIP Light.”

The removal seems to be due to some hacking on Erica’s part. It seems that she hacked a little bit of code that allowed her application control the brightness of the iPhone. So, when you opened Light, it would force your iPhone to go to full brightness instead of the brightness that your iPhone was set at in your stock Settings. Then, when you closed the application, your iPhone would go back to the original brightness you had it set at. Although this is a feature that many of us desperately would like to have, it is against Apple’s rules to affect the brightness of the iPhone.

Light, Moo, To Do – Erica Sadun Applications in the the App Store

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

Doug is starting to do video reviews of App Store applications so, I was trying to find a few applications that I could review that didn’t necessarily need a video. So, I decided to go with a few familiar apps..all of which are free (which is nice!). Most people in the jailbreak community are familiar with the name Erica Sadun…she has developed quite a few applications for the jailbroken iPhone. It seems Light, Moo and To Do have made their way from Installer to the App Store. Below are quick descriptions of each application.

Light is a simple application that turns your iPhone into a flashlight. Once the application is installed, all you need to do is tap the icon on your SpringBoard and voilĂ , you have an instant flashlight. This really does work…I used it all the time on my jailbroken iPhone. They only problem with Light is that you cannot adjust the brightness. So, if you are trying to check on a sleeping baby…it can sometimes be too bright! A flashlight application is a must have for any iPhone or iPod Touch! (Doug just used this app to plug in a mic to the back of his computer! Ha!).

LightDeveloper’s description of toy: Turn your iPhone into a flashlight.

This app opens to a plain white screen. This may seen completely pointless but, it works PERFECT as a flashlight!! Is is just enough light for when you are trying to walk around a dark house before you go to bed or trying to to check on a baby without waking them up (which I have used it for many many times)! So simple, yet so handy. Light is available through the Ste Packaging source. Here are some screenshots:
