Gone are the days of holding up your lighter at rock concerts, not to mention the fire hazards. Now you only need your iPhone and this nifty little app. It presents a graphical rendition of a the flint of a lighter on the screen. Just flick it by moving your finger downward and a flame appears. (Move your finger upward and you see sparks but nothing else ever happens.)
Once you have your flame, you can move the iPhone around and have the lighter “interact” with the sides of your iPhone by sizzling and setting off “smoke.” It’s a good way to pretend to damage your phone when it is getting on your nerves.
Another thing you can do is hold down the valve of the lighter causing a flame thrower like effect. Or use wind effects (which are on by default but can be turned off) to effect the state of the flame by blowing into the mic. Just don’t blow too hard or, naturally, you’ll extinguish it.
Like with many other iPhone apps, you can use the pinch/pull gestures to affect the size of the flame or just put your finger in it and play around – splitting and breaking it without the risk of burning yourself.
There is also an option to set it to show a normal flame, a blue Obama flame or a red McCain flame. Then you can view a worldwide map of other users around the world and what flame they have chosen. The manufacturer added a note saying you can still use the colors now after the election. This is great since I think the blue flame just looks really cool.
