Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
AVAILABLE FOR FREE UNTIL IT IS UPDATED TO AN UNIVERSAL APP (running on iPhone/iPod Touch AND on the iPad) FOR FREE! SO WE RECOMMEND GRABBING IT NOW. Please write a nice review if you like it, we will constantly update the product!
With this tool, the slope can be measured by all edges of the device in every direction. When the device is put flat on the table a bubble view will fade in.
The background color and bubble mode color can be set individually. Both can be set via the settings menu.
The toolbar S/C button switched the color for the current mode.
Switch Unit Mode
You can switch the unit mode either by the settings menu, or via the toolbar.
Switch on the calibration mode via the settings menu. Put the device flat on a table or
hold the device in one of the four directions perpendicular to the
surface (bottom side down, bottom side up, left side up or left side
down). While holding the device, press the button that automatically
gets enabled if you are holding the device correctly. Then just click
finish and the calibration should be accurate as long as the surface was
properly leveled. When finished you can uncheck the calibration mode in the settings.
According to wikipedia: An inclinometer or clinometer is an
instrument for measuring angles of slope (or tilt), elevation or
inclination of an object with respect to gravity. It is also known as a
tilt meter, tilt indicator, slope alert, slope gauge, gradient meter,
gradiometer, level gauge, level meter, declinometer, and pitch & roll indicator.
For recreational use only. After the
calibration it CAN (!) be very accurate especially for the main axis
after calibration. The measurement is performed as good as possible (we
try our best) by using the three inbuilt accelerometers.

What's New in Version 3.1
iPad retina support
MUCH better looking than Apple's version (built into their Compass app
Jony Ive makes everything look like they were done by graphics 101 trainees: plain, simplistic, sketchy, lacking-in-style, visually BORING.
Clinometer HD has from day one looked like it was created by advanced graduate level designers and is just about one of the most beautiful apps ever built for iOS. AND, it seems to be slightly more accurate than Apple's offering.
Skeumorphism -- when done well -- can achieve elegant and sophisticated displays that delight the eyes and appeal to one's sense of admiration for work well done. They also require much greater talent.
One of my favorite apps of all time!!
This has been a great app on my iPhone and when I saw an HD version I had to try it. It's just gotten even better.
This is not a toy! With the calibration feature - that really works perfectly by the way - it's an excellent tool. Especially with the size of the iPad versus the iPhone.
Exactly what it should be.
I looked at a lot of level apps for my iPad Mini -- and this was far and away the winner, hands down.
