Strobe Gun is a multi-purpose flashlight and strobe light utility app for iOS on your iPhone, iPod and iPad. Useful at dance parties, for halloween costumes and events, as an emergency flasher, sending morse code flash signals or even for personal defense at night, Strobe Gun is a must have for any iOS user. Strobe Gun allows playing some cool and startling sound effects during the strobe light effect.

On iOS devices without a flash, Strobe Gun will use the entire screen as the strobe light.

Strobe Gun contains three modes:
- Tap to toggle - just tap once to start the strobe and tap once again to stop it
- Tap (and hold) - flash once, useful for sending morse code signals or doing short bursts of flash - no sound plays in this mode
- Auto - just point the device camera (or screen if no flash) at an attacker to strobe them

I'm Jeff Johnson and I realized that a clean, simple and advertisement free app was needed on the iOS app store that provided a wide range of lighting and sound effects, so I created Strobe Gun.

Disclaimer: Remember, with great power comes great responsibility. Please don't shine this in people's faces unless they are trying to hurt you. Strobe Gun and Digital Ruby, LLC are not responsible for irresponsible use, and make no claim that this app will absolutely disable / disorient an attacker or be an adequate emergency flasher.

I also created You Doodle, a top notch image editor, with over 4 million downloads, I'd encourage you to check it out :)

Instructions needed

Apple told me about a little side button to get sound from this app..?

On the side of your phone is the "mute" button, flip the switch to the up/on position

Hey light but no sound?

Flashing lights but no sound, how about you send me a dollar ($2.00 total) back and we can call it even.
