***************************************************

You can hear from app reviewers and happy users:

"Not only are these tools functional, they're also gorgeous, with woodgrain and lighting effects that makes them seem straight out of Leonardo da Vinci's workshop." - O'Reilly Media, "Best iPhone Apps"

"Father's Day App for Your #1 Dad" - CNN

"Really handy and I like the style of the user experience a lot. I'm a picky user but I have to say these tools are nicely done and worth the price." - our customer

***************************************************

There are 5 tools in this Carpenter toolkit:
- A plumb bob, the easiest way for you to verify the verticality of lines or walls
- A surface level, the best tool to level any flat surface
-a bubble level bar, exactly like what you see in a woodworking shop but more attractive.
- A steel protractor, measuring angles from 0 to 180 degrees.
- A steel ruler, supporting both inches and centimeters. By swiping it left and right, the ruler is capable to measure things much longer than your iPhone!
- Once calibrated, the plumb bob, surface level and level bar can also be used as an inclinometer/clinometer by reading the angles on the screen.

Enjoy!

A few tips for better use of iHandy Carpenter:

- THE PLUMB BOB, SURFACE LEVEL AND BUBBLE LEVEL BAR
Calibrate it first before any serious usage!

- USE THE PLUMB BOB TO MEASURE THE VERTICALITY OF A WALL

Two ways to test the verticality of a wall:
1. Put your iPhone back-to-back onto the wall you measure (Recommended).
If the shadow of the plumb bob is on the X-axis (y equals zero), it then indicates your wall is perfectly straight and vertical to the ground. Please note that in this way the reading of "X" does NOT have to be zero.
The back of iPhone is not totally flat due to the camera bump. But it's accurate enough just to use the flat part of your iPhone.

2. Put one edge of your iPhone on the wall you measure.
If the shadow of the plumb bob is on the Y-axis (x equals zero), it then indicates your wall is perfectly straight and vertical to the ground. Please note that in this way the reading of "Y" does NOT have to be zero.

- HOW TO MEASURE THE SLOPE OF A SURFACE
A few ways to measure the slope of a surface:
1. Use the Surface Level (Recommended).
Put your iPhone onto the inclined surface (The edge of iPhone should be in line with the slope direction of the surface. To verify this, just to check whether the reading of "y" is around zero).
The reading of "x" is the slope angle of the measured surface.

2. Use the bubble level bar
Put one edge or back of your iPhone stick to the inclined surface (The edge of iPhone should be in line with the slope direction of the surface).
The reading is the slope angle of the measured surface.

If the surface is almost vertical to the ground, we suggest that you use the plumb bob tool to measure the surface instead.

Ruler is not iPad compatible

The app is not compatible with iPads, though the description says it is. One inch on my iPad Mini’s screen is actually two inches.
The other features seem to work as expected.

Thanks for the reply, iHandy. I look forward to the update for iPads.

Developer Response

Hi, thanks for your comment. We will take your advice into consideration and the app will be compatible with iPads soon. Please don't be disappointed and wait for the future update. In the mean time, we strongly suggest you to try our app on iPhone. It works perfectly fine. Have a nice day with iHandy Carpenter!

Deep Thought

Still one of my favorites

This is probably the oldest and still supported tools. Glad to see it still going strong. I love the Plumb bob the best.

Only a few refinements necessary

4Puf and BubbleBoy have covered my concerns however, I do see some value in this App therefore, would like to see the mentioned modifications installed in the next updates.

If using the non button surface of the iPhone, the numerical values are upside down. You would think that since the graphics flip with orientation of the iphone so would the numerical values..? Rookie oversight here and hope this is improved in future updates.

Calibration or "zero" button needs to be included in the task bar. Once the device has been zeroed it should swing incrementally be it vertical or horizontal. Once the device has been zeroed or calibrated, it is unlikely it will need to be used again for the same operation. Therefore, a discreet location is fine.

The "invisible task bar" should not be ENTIRELY "invisible." Perhaps invisible but easily found underneath the "i" or a discreet, small, semi transparent icon but as is the invisible task bar is very difficult to find when moving from one application to the next.

Finally, the buttons. As mentioned in paragraph one, The iHandy is right side up with the iPhone buttons compromising the surface to be measured. Bummer.

Otherwise a nice App.
