    While I believe Flashlight XT is the best flashlight app, it does not run "in the background", just under the lock screen. Minimizing the app will turn off the light. I contacted the dev about this and he told me that the light running in the background is actually an exploit and he refuses ton implement it because it will cause strange behavior (app can't turn the light off upon resume, or crashes), and the light is forcefully turned off by the OS in about 45s anyway.

    Things might have changed with 8.1, but afaik you can't really have the light on in the background.

    I might have spoken too early, yes flashlight xt does run under lock screen but not in background as the OP asked
