What's a good front screen flashlight app, without ads? It doesn't have to be free.

A few weeks ago, I asked about an omnibus toolkit app that I have on my old daily driver phone, but I can't install it on my new phone because it no longer exists in the Play store. While many of the functions are easily accessible elsewhere, the one that I used most apparently isn't. This app, a front facing flashlight, simply turns the screen white and cranks up the brightness as far as it goes, The overall effect is that it turns a phone into a miniature lighting panel that, for most situations, is more useful and comfortable than the harsh LED light in the back.

Does anyone know of a good front flashlight app without ads, either free or with a modest buy-in to turn the ads off?

For reference, the app I used to use is called "atools", with the "a" stylized as a Greek letter alpha in the icon logo.

ETA: I should have also mentioned: I'd like the app to have a setting that would make the front flashlight come on by default, or at least let the user choose front or back before any light actually comes on.

A "creative" light that looks like a gaslamp or candle flame would also work provided it's bright enough. That would ptobably mean the app has to maximize the brightness, like the one I used to ise.

Can you check that first link?

It just takes me to a forum landing page.

Sorry, it's the stupid forum software converting the Play Store link to this kind of affiliate link, which doesn't always work right.

The app is called "Flashlight: No Permissions" and the developer name is Humberto, so do a search on the Play Store for that. You can also bring up the Android Authority article and find the app and link there.
