Torchie - Volume Button Torch (Android app)
Free Software under GNU GPL v2+ license
Hello great people!
About two months ago, myself along with my brother made a (somewhat innovative) torch app called Torchie to access flashlight with the press of volume buttons anytime. It got a nice introduction into many languages (except English where people write blogs for money) by various websites and blogs.
At the same time, I was getting random messages from various people to make Torchie available under Free Software license.
I too had a great debate in FSFTN Telegram group once. I was reluctant at first because I was much worried that what if Torchie’s code goes into some already popular torch apps (which are already spywares by big-data companies) making it more popular, leaving out this little fellow (i.e Torchie which is so infant still) piled up along with thousands of other flashlight apps in Android world.
Later I learned about various FLOSS licenses and their right to claim copyright infringement. With satisfaction, I hosted the project in GitHub public repository now under GNU GPL v2+ license.
