"Siren Light" is a multicolor and multisound flashlight utility for S60/Symbian smartphones featuring mood emoticons, developed by Somusar and available on Handango.

1 - Features

Siren Light features several ready-to-use modes, such as:

  • SOS, flashing an orange/amber light and ringing the well known SOS signal in Morse code (Fig. 1);

  • Siren flasher, useful for security, safety and healthcare personnel, who can thus act as a sort of on-foot ambulance or safety convoy, even when the phone is in offline mode;

  • Happy birthday, playing the famous melody in three different keys, and flashing different random colors in full screen with a smiley (Fig. 2);

  • Johannes Brahms' well known Lullaby (Cradle song), accompanied by a relaxing sequence of 64 different colors, ideal for babies and small kids (Fig. 3);

  • traffic lights;

  • an original Mobile Blues tune, flashing screens in different blue colors;

  • an original Rainbow tone, displaying the traditional seven rainbow colors;

  • a white flashlight.

Colors, flasher mode, emoticons, and tones and tunes can be freely combined into a personalized siren flasher or a color-based communication device for free short-distance conventional signals. For example, circles of friends can agree on different conventional meanings for different colors (for instance, red, violet and yellow), and use them in conjunction with emoticons for quick short color messages.

2 - Using Siren Light: the main control panel

When you start Siren Light for the first time after installation, you will have to provide your activation key.

After that, the splashscreen is displayed, and you can view the main menu by pressing the left softkey, and the main options by pressing the navigation key.

9 - Personalized flasher

To personalize the flasher to your favourite color, tone or tune, and flasher mode, proceed as follows.

If you know the values of the RGB components of your favorite color, enter them using the "Choose your own" option from the color control panel as described below. Alternatively, use the random color generator repeatedly to get a color close enough to the one you prefer, as shown below.

Use the color controls on the keypad to adjust each color component as preferred. Note that the "fast fwd" color controls wrap around at 255, restarting from 0. Use them for faster adjusting, then use the "+" or "-" controls for finer adjusting. Then return to the main control panel by pressing the right softkey, as shown below.
