 Menu & Setttings

- Scale option for maps and drawings. input [Scale] at the settings.

※ Orientation sensor ??
Most protractor and level apps are using only an acceleration sensor. But this way has restrictions. When the slop is bigger than 60 degrees, the measurement can be inaccurate.

This app provides the best solution. Orientation sensor!! It calculates tilt using both magnetic sensor and acceleration sensor. The result becomes more reliable. I recommend that you turn on this option. But some custom ROM and non-magnetic devices cannot activate orientation sensor. Please check your specifications.

 Measure longer object than your screen (ruler)

 Caliper mode (thread)
 touch the screen with 2 fingers

Q. The screen width is not correct.
A. Click [Calibrate] icon on the app bar. You can input correct size (long-side, not diagonal) for yourself.

Q. The level does not work.
A. Some custom ROM (CyanogenMod) and OS have this problem. Release [Orientation sensor] option at the settings.

Q. I cannot calibrate the level with zero-calibration
A. You have to reset all settings. Go menu > Settings > Reset settings.
