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 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.

What would make this app even better is in regards with the ruler if you could press a hold button once you have your start point then as you slide your phone for example to the right the ruler slides with the measurement giving you the correct measurement. And just another thought with the protractor the dotted line you have for your angle outside the protractor could be a bright green or could choose a colour in settings.

Very Useful

As an artist having a level or plumb bob in my pocket is particularly handy for straightening pictures at an exhibition, a ruler with millimeter or 1/16 inch increments, a protractor for measuring angles in artwork, a surface level for setting up a camera on a tripod for architectural photographs or panoramas. Perfect for an artist, but I am sure most people will find these basic tools useful from time to time.

None of these tools are quite as convenient as the real thing, but then the real thing is very inconvenient to have in the pocket all the time. This app replaces separate apps for each of its tools and is an appreciated addition to the App Store.

One of the BEST VALUE apps availabe

Ok, Ok... I agree the ruler is not great it even satisfactory for that matter. Apart from that very small fault, it is a fantastic app. For those people who love to holiday in their caravans (trailers for some countries!), this tool is a must. All you need is a true and accurate pool table to calibrate the app and it all is sweet! Oh, by the way, what you save in the functions of this app, you can afford to buy a ruler a 100 times over.
