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 as you can see in carpenter tool kit shops, and more beautiful!
- 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.


A few tips for better use of iHandy Carpenter:

Calibrate it first before any serious usage!

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 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 3G iPhone.
2. Put one edge of your iPhone on the wall you measure.
If the shadow of the plumb bob is on 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.

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.

Nice app, but the ruler is inaccurate

Had this app for a long time, but having just upgraded to v3.0.0 it seemed to me by eye that the ruler measurements looked too big. Checking with a good old-fashioned metal ruler confirmed that 7cm on my screen is actually more than 8cm in reality! (iPod Touch 6)

Please fix!

Really Useful

The bubble level is really useful when setting up our camping table. I have used the spirit level several times to check sockets are level when I can't get my torpedo level in. However since I upgraded to the iPhone 5 the bubble level isn't very accurate & needs calibrating on a known level surface which is not great.
