The thing works OK, but in the pictures for the description, it shows a bubble level (the one with the 45 on it) as well as the 360 degree level. The bubble one shows up randomly for a second or two, then leaves. I can't figure out how to set it to stay on. The rest of the app is fine and easy to use, but I knocked off two start for this problem and because I wrote the developer twice over two weeks and received no reply. Truthfully, when a developer wants money for ads to leave, that is fine & good- But if they don't reply to questions after they have your cash, that is no good. I took it off the phone. PS: If you feel the level is not accurate, it is most likely not the app's fault. It is more likely your phone's motion sensor. Try using the phone's calibration routine & the app's.

Chose this over bubble level and smart protractor apps. Downloaded all 3 due to being over a million downloads and the other IMO don't have good user interface as this one. I like the little windows that get you closer to the angle that you,re hunting for. I like that it has the bubble feature as well when you lay the device flat on a table. I'm going to use this to set the differential pinion angle of my Jeep so I can get the correct caster with new adjustable control arms.

Beautiful design giving the user as if dealing witha professional clinometer. the reality is : It is NOT. It gives a bit of an indication of the angle - level etc. But on the end of the day it all depends on the accuracy of the sensor in your phone / tablet. I use a very professional GETAC Z710 tablet for industrial use. Yet ... even that was 3 degrees off in all measurements in comparison with my factory calibrated clinometer. Off course there is a calibration function somewhere - but that is just a band-aid to be repeated in every new situation. But again: Hats off for the very very well executed design. A real winner if the tablet sensors were as good.
