"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.

Everything else is great but I commonly find the level off by a degree or 3. Probably an issue with the phone hardware's
capability and not the app.
A great group of useful apps I use very often. Thanks for a great set of apps.
Enjoy this app from the original thru latest upgrade. Easy to use.
What can I say? If you are level you know it. And if you don't know, you will!
Great in a pinch. I don't need a level everyday and can never find one when i need it. But i always have my phone nearby. This is
Deserves a few more stars. I like it.
I use this app for a lot of things including leveling my bike saddle.
I have used this app hundreds of times. Very useful and very convenient.
It is just nice to have when you are working. It is easy to use and you always know where it is.
This is a great app - and it's there when you need it. If your need for accuracy is greater than what an iPhone can provide then
you probably already have the hardware. When you don't have it with you
A useful and beautiful tool, one of the first apps from my first iPhone onwards.
(5★) The best level is the one you have with you.
I rarely carry around a ruler and/or level. This is good enough to be good enough, and the fact that I always have it with me
elevates it to great.
Use it to level our RV. Hang pics. Love it
What a handy tool to have in your pocket, I recently used this level to build an awesome dog house & I couldn't be more satisfied
with its accurate performance.
This is the perfect app for so much stuff I do around the house. What would make it even better is add the ability to have the
camera on in the background of the pendulum.
(5★) Handy little app
It works. Comes in handy. I like it.
I frequently work with my hands and this application helps out tremendously. It works flawlessly without the bugs that I've come
to expect with other apps.
This is the an awesome app! Use it all the time
Everything you need in a pinch. Everything is very accurate. Highly recommend it, would give it 10 stars.
(5★) Stair builder approval
I use this app primarily to find the pitch of the stairs I build.
Solid execution. Highly recommended.
I use the tools in this app all the time!
(5★) One of the best
The best app of its kind. Once you get the hang of using it, works like a charm even on my older iPhone
I have used this app for home, office, and clinical projects and it continues to impress!
If you truly use this app you will love it. It does everything it purports it can do.
I've used this app to level items to hang on the wall and to level any uneven floor surface . Many uses and easy to use. Love it
This app packs several excellent tools into one inexpensive, reliable product. Well worth the small price!
Never going to another app like it. This ones too good.
I love the hockey puck level and use it all the time for shower drains
Often handy and beautifully executed.Nice!
Does what it's designed to do and does it exceedingly well. Now looks good on my iPhone 6, too.
(5★) Very Flexible Array of Tools
Super job on update of ruler function ! Been using the App for a long time; it's a great resource !
(5★) Super app
Really love the App. I find all kinds of uses for it.
This is super easy to use and comes in really handy when you don't have tools around.
Works great in all but one use, the measuring portion of the app, there is no way to select different phone models to have the
measurements adjust to the right size for your phone (I have the 6 Plus,
I have an iPhone 6 Plus and it seems like the developers have been too lazy to update it for this device. One inch on the ruler is
actually almost and inch and a half. Other functions work fine, but c
Esta madre me ayudo a terminar de construir mi casa y de pasada ayudar a los que constuyeron el sistema del metro en mexico DF.
Gorgeous, useful, functional interface
Have used it in the field often, comes in handy.
I just noticed that the ruler is not correct. On my iPhone 6, the ruler is about 12% longer than an actual ruler. Maybe it's
correct on smaller screens, but not the 6.
This is a fantastic app. I have used it a lot. But the ruler is NOT accurate on iPhone 6. Please update!
CM and Inch just stretched on the iPhone 6.I hope they will fix it soon.Other then that it's a pretty useful app!
This app is very helpful to someone who does construction work or some type of home repairs.
(4★) Solid level tools
Very nice app. Ruler is a little awkward, but that's more a limitation of using a cell phone as a tape measure. Leveling tools are
top shelf.I had to reduce it to 4 stars after I purchased an iPhone 6
Good app to have if your a handy man
I started a project at work, hanging a 50lb. wall mount for a 65 inch, 70lb. monitor. I came to a point when I needed a level. My
co-worker whipped out his iPhone and shared this app with me! Was ama
(3★) Needs to be updated for bigger iPhones!
I love this app and use it frequently. But I just upgraded to an iPhone 6 Plus and the ruler is no longer accurately scaled!
The first app I ever purchased (after watching the Apple commercial that used this app to demonstrate the gyro and motion
detectors inside a first generation iPhone). Still useful after all these year
Need to fix ruler on iPhone 6 Plus
(2★) Great app needs update
Love the app but ruler doesn't work with iPhone 6plus. The ruler isn't calibrated correctly. Will update review once
compatibility is fixed.
Since the display is stretched on the larger iPhones, the ruler is not accurate anymore.
Last time this app was updated was before the iPhone 6 came out. iPhone 6 measurements are not accurate. Its a great iPhone 5 app
loved it with my 5 and used many times.
No longer need to look for a ruler or a level everywhere!
.and I will probably never get rid of it, I've used other apps with similar functions, but this one has always been the most
beautiful, and works perfectly.
I have notified customer support over a month ago. The distances are still correct.
Quick and easy even for the two left thumb challenged!
Easily turns you into show-off. All the fellas drool over each tool, so just show one, then wait awhile before you "Need to check
something" with another attention getter. Chicks like all the "TOOL TA
Used it to lever my washing machine which had been dansing on the floor. It has calmed down now and spins beautifully.
Great for light household work!
The free one has a tone, I bought this fully expecting the paid one to have it too.
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
Amazing accuracy for wood projects in cabinetmaking! I truly love this app. It has saved me in many a fix!
Excellent addition to tool kit.
