sightLevel enables you to turn your iPad2 or iPhone into a virtual laser level. Your virtual tool belt just got handier!
“sightLevel Pro is now a universal app, so you can utilize it on both your iPad2 and iPhone at no additional cost,” Karen Auman said. “We think that you will love sightLevel’s new functionality as well as its updated look.” The engineered user interface is designed for both the iPad2 and iPhone displays.
How it Works:
Using the built-in camera functionality, simply hold your iPad2 up in landscape view, tilt the iPad2 until the bubble is centered within the level, and use the horizontal red line to determine the slope.
sightLevel Pro is a convenient, innovative update to a tried and true tool. Sight levels are useful for determining if walls, dividers, fences, wall hangings, and picture frames are level. They also help you determine the slope and run of a road, landscape, or excavation project. sightLevel Pro is perfect for professionals and weekend warriors alike who are looking for the utility of a virtual laser level. At this price, it beats any sight level at your local hardware store!

Nifty, but counterintuitive interface. Documentation, which is sorely needed, is non-existent. There is a calibration feature (just try to find it), but no hints on how to use it. The percent grade value is only loosely valid--sure, it starts out at zero % grade at horizontal and increases when tilted, but at vertical (infinite grade) it reads a bogus 45%. I tried to calibrate but it only got worse. Too bad that they didn't take just a few minutes to write a few sentences on how it works and its features. As is, a frustrating toy; little more.
This works well for what it is.
Of course there are ads! This is a FREE app. How else are they supposed to get paid? Besides, I have only seen thin strips of advertisements across the bottom of the screen and they were not distracting.
I would recommend it to homeowners doing occasional projects, but it's probably not something I'd suggest for professional use.
This is how it works
Hold line to object that is plumb or level such as a soffit on a house switch to calibrate screen hit the icon check it to the object you used if not good try again in until u get it good. This is a ruff way to get a pitch on a roof ext. bottom line it is plumb to object not plumb or level in reality. It is handy to get angles or grades within reason
