Can you believe that? A simple torch light cum SOS signal sending application is the top global app on Nokia Ovi store. And this Ovi application is developed by CellApp technology of India. CellApp has other apps on Ovi store like DataMonitor, Callback and Voice reminder.
The app is called as QTorch and it provides torch like functionality in seven different colors. It can send a morse code or guide an aircraft on a taxi way – though I wouldn’t try the later one. It can flash SOS in morse code at the click of a button. That is all the app does. It is the top app globally. It is also the top app in Europe and India. Phones with torch lights are quite popular especially with the low-end phones. QTorch works on Nokia N8 only. The exact number of downloads for QTorch aren’t known. My guess is, it would be less than a million because CellApp did not feature in the list of 100 developers who crossed a million downloads on Ovi store.
The success of this application tells me only one thing. Simple things have the greatest usability. You just have to solve a problem. Even if it is a simple one.
