Do-It-Yourself apps are nothing new but Stanley just announced it’s redesigned level app which is now available on the iPad and iPhone 5. This app is free and available in cherry wood or FatMax yellow.
We think this app would be really handy for easy jobs like hanging pictures, mounting shelves and many other household chores where rummaging for a level in your toolbox is not as convenient as firing it up on your iPad.
It harnesses the technology of an accelerometer and a digital gyroscope located in select iPhone and iPad models, to generate an understanding of where the device is in space. After an initial calibration, the bubble will read an angle up to 90 degrees and will indicate 0 degrees when you are level, with crisp, easy to read numbers.
The Stanley® Level App is available for free at the Apple App Store and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
