"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 tool kit:
- 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:
- THE PLUMB BOB, SURFACE LEVEL AND BUBBLE LEVEL BAR
Calibrate it first before any serious usage!
- USE THE PLUMB BOB TO MEASURE THE VERTICALITY OF A WALL
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 3G iPhone is not totally flat. But it's accurate enough just to use the flat part of your 3G 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.
- HOW TO MEASURE THE SLOPE OF A SURFACE
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.

Ruler not scaled for iPhone 6 screen. Other apps work well, and nice skeuomorphic designs.
(4★) Ruler for iPhone 6, please
Have used this for years, especially the level, but please give us an iPhone 6 Plus version for the ruler.
This is a great app. Handy to have in the phone. I love using for hanging pictures on the wall and getting it just right the first
Excellent addition to tool kit.
I enjoyed using this app for the 5s. Now that I have a 6 plus the screen ruler is not accurate. Please update the app.
If you need a pocket, or any other type of small level, then this app is for you!I have made thousands of dollars using this level
in one for or another. They also have many more great apps.
I use this app all the time, particularly for the "level" function, which comes in very handy when hanging pictures, adjusting
devices and clocks, etc. The ruler function has not been as helpful for m
This was one of my first apps back in 2008 and definitely my first "tool" app. Fantastic development and super handy for those
moments when you need virtual tools from the garage!
I work in the HVAC trade and use this app all the time. Great for leveling thermostats.
The ruler is useless. The level is handy, but I already had that as a free app. The only reason I paid for this version of the
app was for the ruler which looked like it would be cool. I thought yo
Glad to have this App in my tool belt.
Not only very useful in lots of situations but the elegant tools bring back memories of what things used to look like in the days
of beautifully machined tools. A pleasure to use.
I am by no means a pro carpenter. However once in a while I need to hang a picture or wall mount a shelf. This app is my go-to
level for such small tasks. Amazing in simplicity and functionality.
This app works really well, but the dark background makes it usable for my application.
It is the smart person who plans his project in detail so that he has all the necessary items BEFORE he begins work and thus is
insured of success. This app can insure his success.!
I can never find my level or plumb when needed and this works amazingly well
Great for leveling picnic tables at campsites. As well as other basic stuff.
Finding a protractor that will measure 1 degree is impossible. To properly set up my Harley sidecar I have to tilt the bike in 1
degree. Taping my phone to the rear brake rotor and using the plumb bob
برنامج مفيد جدا وقت الحاجه شكرا لكم
Great tools for right in your hand
Have this on my phone & use it all the time, especially when traveling. Love The level in our RV
This app has helped me in many place at work
Used for leveling RV more often than spirit levels.
This is how I would have designed the app!
This is a handy and wonderful app.
What a clever, useful app. Saves dragging a whole bunch of tools with me. Way to go guy
You could hang a door with this app. Linear measurements require no case but a small price to pay for this gem.
Bought the ruler thinking it moved when you slide the phone along the surface (pics and description are misleadingly ambiguous).
All it does it lets you manually slide the ruler with you finger which
This is must have for anybody. Need to find and angle or see if something is level. Use your phone :)
Really like this app. Use it quite often.
Minus one star each time you ask for a review.
This the best level app in the whole entire AppStore. I love it and recommend it to everyone that needs a level once in a while.
I have realPlumb bobs, levels and so on but having this tool in my pocket saves time and steps for small projects.
I love it comes in handy worth the money
Great product just like the Lackey Bracket!
Very useful and easy, every one I recommend it to also likes it.
(5★) Great for camper setup!
Great for leveling a camper in the dark! Easier in a case that you can set on its edge, but handy!
I use your app every day at some point. I am a site foreman and the tools at my fingertips make my work go smooth.
Works great have used it multiple times
Great app at home and helping friends hang photos or need something level!
I never knew how often I needed a level until I got this app. It seems like whenever I need a level my level is always stored away
whereas my iPhone is on my belt. This app gets used for measurements
Love the app. As a DIYer I use it constantly.
You have no idea how many times I have used this. Even my wife uses this app - to hang pictures - even putting icing on special
cakes :) keep up the good efforts.
(4★) Good stuff
Although the linear measurement tools are a little hard to use.
Really like the app. I use it for simple thing like hanging shelves. I also use it to double check the traditional level.
Not only is this app useful,It is also very accurate
Nice tools. Use them a lot ore than I thought I would.
A useful and convenient application.
Worked fine but will not accept recent update.
Has been a useful tool for home projects
This is handy tool but the horizontal level does not work, it always remains in the vertical mode. Please fix it.
Very handy! Just have to remember this tool when needed. J
Indispensable! This has won quite a few arguments. Crooked? Yeah, no thanks.
The tools available are very helpful. User interface is intuitive. One handed operation is easy.
Seems to work very well. The ruler had some puzzled based on other reviews. It actually works well in that each time you
reposition the iPhone to measure something long, you can swipe the ruler to adv
Many tools in your pocket and they are accurate. Always works!
(2★) Short changed
Tried to download the full set and got only two of the four. Like the bubble level but not pleased at being short changed from the
The only thing better to have in my pocket would be a framer/carpenter!
Does what it is supposed to do,ruler is as good as it can be.
Great and simple to use except for the ruler whose instructions are poor.
Excellent tool. Very useful and handy. Saved me on a few occasions.
Not happy I paid for all five and only got one
Have used twice to level front end washer dryer. Works well.
Very user friendly and extremely accurate. Worth the money.
I find a lot of use for almost all these tools in just the simple around the house work I do and I am not any kind of carpenter.
All are easy to use and read making easier to use. The all around graph
When I drop my toolbags at work it never fails I will need something so instead of going back to get them just pull out the iPhone
and I can get done what needs to be done 20 years in the trade and it
Work as advertised great for when you need something level you always have phone in reach
I use this app quite often especially the level.
This worked perfectly for my trigonometry project!
Functionality and graphics are great.Great update. Thanks.
Excellent kit. The ruler alone was worth the price.
Great app. I use it all the time. Love the protractor feature
Great handy and easy to use. Some things take getting used to but still easy and recommended.
(4★) Still the best
And most useful. One of the first great iPhone apps is still kicking although the developer is super slow to update.
