  4. Building level. There are two options - the first analogue of the bubble one, with its help it is easy to check the plane and find out the error. The second is a laser one, through the smartphone screen it is determined whether an object is evenly exposed or whether a picture is hung on the wall.
  5. Metal detector. The application is suitable for models with a magnetic field sensor. With the help of the program, they find where the electrical wiring is laid in the wall, nails or screws. It is not difficult to find metal elements in the ground at shallow depths.

  1. Lantern. All models already have this app. But to expand the functionality, they download programs in which both a flash and a smartphone screen can shine. Also as add-ons can be a stroboscope and Morse code support.
  2. Engineering calculator. With its help it is easy to calculate the area of ​​any shape, the volume of the room, etc. In many options, it is possible to enter formulas if you need to count the same indicators every day.

There are many applications, each of the described additions is in dozens of variations in the Android play-market.

  2. Engineering calculator.
  3. Compass.
  4. Building level.
  5. Ruler.
  6. Protractor.
  7. Dog whistle.
  8. Calculation of the area and volume of the room.
  9. Morse code converter.
  10. Convert speech to text.
