Today’s app of the day is Smart Tools.
Smart Tools is the Swiss-army-knife of android apps, providing a number of great tools for mobile
users. Included under the hood are roughly nine separate apps, allowing to you measure length and
angles, distances, direction (compasses) and sound and vibration.
What makes Smart Tools unique is the smart way it utilises your smart phones camera. With the
distance measurer for example, you simply turn on your camera, aim at a target, and using basic
geometry, your phone will tell you the distance to that object.
Other interesting apps include a vibration tester (allegedly the force on my desk by my keyboard
typing is equivalent to a category 1 earthquake) and a decibel counter (my typing is equivalent to a
Busy street or an alarm clock at 80dB!), as well as a metal detector.
All in all, Smart Tools is a great utility to have installed on your device, which will likely come in handy when you least expect it!
