At the top left corner of the screen, there is a flash light option. Clicking on that will turn your screen display to white at full intensity, so that you can use your phone as a torch at night to illuminate the dark corners of your room. Clicking on the torch button will turn your screen to the following screenshot.
There is a text written at the center of the screen, which says, “2x tap to close the white screen”. As is suggestive, double clicking anywhere on this white screen will close the torch display, and so you will be able to switch off the torch light that you have just started through this app.
