    Great program, works exactly as advertised.

    Any chance for a launch Fcam option? Or a third button to launch a custom app?

    This program drains my battery

    This was difficult to trace.

    Apparently the /etc/event.d/flashlight-extra script is started every 2 seconds.

    Could there possibly be some wrong registration?

    Btw: Deinstalling solved the thing

    I don't know about pr1.2, but this does not play nice with pr1.3, including with Titan's power kernel.

    Upon installation, it worked but I noticed everything became real laggy. CPU util went way up. On de-installation the system was somewhat more responsive but CPU is still high: it has apparently done something to make ohmd eat cycles which persists between reboots.

    I'm trying to fix this and there are seversl TMO threads on the subject. This is a nice app, but you guys really need to fix this major bug!

    great app! using it for months! only if i would want something more in this app then it would be to optimize for faster startup...currently it takes lots of time to startup..anyways thanks for your effort
