A friend just sent me this video, and I'd heard of the problem before.
And this report is very misleading, to put it mildly. First, they never say it's android-only (though they do say you have to download via Google Play store). Second, all their pictures of phones are of iPhones.
Finally, I'm a little amused that they keep saying that everyone uses a flashlight app. I've never downloaded, or used, one. When I need light, I just turn the screen on. If that isn't bright enough, I get a real flashlight.
And man, finishing the video, this is quite the scare-fest. I wonder how much business Miliefsky got out of it.
