These days professional Craftsmen, Tradesmen, and DIYers around the country count on General to help them work smarter, faster, and better. ToolSmart™ is a great example. With one easy-to-use app — integrated with four new tools — the ToolSmart™ product line is about to eliminate millions of headaches. Here’s a closer look at our introductory line:
ToolSmart™ is the first full line of measuring and inspection tools that connect wirelessly to a smartphone app, allowing you to:
· Work Smarter – All ToolSmart™ tools connect seamlessly with the ToolSmart™ app.
· Measure Better – With ToolSmart™, there is no more jotting down your numbers on little scraps of paper or even the thing you are measuring. Keep track of all your measurements in one organized location right in the palm of your hand.
· Be More Productive – With “My Projects”, you can easily keep track of all your jobs, arrange your measurements by project, calculate the amount of materials you need and order them straight from the app.
ToolSmart™ Laser Distance Measurer
Does all the things a laser measurer should, measuring distances up to 100 feet with the push of a button. But the real benefit comes when it is used with “My Projects” to calculate the precise amount of materials you need to complete your job. Paint, Flooring, and Crown are just a few of the materials you’ll be able to calculate. Once you have your amount, shop directly within the app and view related materials that will help you get the job done right.
ToolSmart™ Digital Angle Finder
Quickly determines the angle of any corner. This tool is especially useful for crown moulding and flooring applications to make sure you get perfect cuts every time.
ToolSmart™ Video Inspection Camera
Puts hard-to-reach places in plain view with the help of an 8mm camera mated to a flexible 3.3-foot probe. If conditions are less than ideal, you can use your smartphone as a second view screen. For jobs requiring documentation, images and videos can be saved to the ToolSmart™ app with the push of a button. Everything needed to write a report, share details with clients, or come up with an estimate is organized and ready to go.
ToolSmart™ Digital Multimeter
Reads voltage, current, resistance, temperature, and more with turn of the dial. It also allows a smartphone to serve as a second viewing screen in case conditions are dark, or there’s more than one person on the job. All data goes directly from the meter to the ToolSmart™ app.

Minor bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
Needs a lot of improvements, but does have potential.
The tools connect and disconnect frequently.
The app needs a variety of changes to actually be useful.
Can not save/export videos/photos for business or referencing purposes.
Can not access the data saved most of the time.
Videos show play button, but never actually play, or just plain don't respond to the touches.
Time/date options on photo/video would be helpful for cataloging purposes.
There are a lot of steps you need to take in order to access the saved data. There needs to be a quick access to data update.
Video editing to shorten video for the needed data clip.
Video play options. Fast forward, rewind. Maybe a drag bar.
Not Ready to use on a job
This is more of a demo than a useful tool.
Rough integration between the app and the laser measurer. For example-the sequence that numbers are stored on the tool prevents transmission of the second measurement while building an area calculation. Disconnects sometimes.
Crashed in the middle of my first project edit, losing the work.
No way to edit information in process on the app, need to go back and re-enter all measurements from the beginning if one is incorrect.
And so forth.
Does NOT WORK WITH iOS 11
Need to update the app ASAP to work with iOS 11.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
