App Description

The lightest, prettiest and most handy carpenter tool kit in the world, right on your iPhone! Get 5 professional tools in ONE app at only half the price of buying each!


You can hear from app reviewers and happy users:

"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 toolkit:
- 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 like what you see in a woodworking shop but more attractive.
- 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:

Calibrate it first before any serious usage!


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 the 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 iPhone is not totally flat due to the camera bump. But it's accurate enough just to use the flat part of your iPhone.

2. Put one edge of your iPhone on the wall you measure.
If the shadow of the plumb bob is on the 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.

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 broken, good visualizations for level, nothing extra

There’s no iPad interface, the UI zooms. The ruler presumably only works on certain devices. On my iPad Pro it’s not correct zoomed or normal. The rest of the UI works and looks fine, but there aren’t any especially helpful features that take advantage of the device capabilities. Recording, comparin…

Great idea, wrong scale for iPhone 6-11

The following is what I wrote when I got iPhone 6. As far as I remember they fixed it somewhere in the past, but when phones grew bigger, the app remained the same. Using iPhone 11 now and the ruler is way off. Can’t they fix it? //iPhone 6 review// The app is great. Gives me what I want when I don&…

Ruler doesent work

I had this a few years and loved it on the seldom few occasions I would need it. When I bought a new phone the ruler no longer works. The iPhone 11 has been out quite some time and they still haven’t updated it to properly format with the bigger phone screen. The level still works great though. Actu…

Fix the ruler, please!

Hey developers, this is a pretty good app, but in case you haven’t noticed, new iPhone screens are larger. Shocking, right? So how many more users have to point out this issue before you provide a fix for this?

Needs to be fixed

Loved this app for the level functionality but the scale no longer will calibrate to the new iPhone.
