Our Thoughts

A tool any handyman shouldn't be without

Gadget Box is an incredibly useful junk drawer of tools, ranging from levels, rulers, protractors, compasses, and more. It might not look especially pretty, but damn is it useful. There’s a unit converter in there, which, though also built into the native calculator app, is handy for those doing construction and using the other tools anyway.

There’s tool which uses a bit of trigonometry to determine the height of something based on how far you are from your subject and how much you tilt the device when picking targets at its base and top. There’s even a custom flashlight app in there that lets you set flash frequency of the camera LED, or change color on the screen. Handymen, you’ll want this app in your toolbox.




Not only does this clear. Things up by putting all your utilities jn one place. It does it with quality on every front. Every tool js thought out and constantly being improved.


I highly recommend Gadget Box. The app is one of my favorites, and I find uses for it on a daily basis. The utilities are handy and well designed; the layout is clean and simple; the updates are plentiful - and bring actual improvements to the app. Over a short time some new tools have been added, as well! Mr. O'Connor has done, and is doing, a great job on this app.


Best app. I use it several times daily at work and home. The more I use it the more uses I find for it. I really like the way Mr. O'Connor updates frequently and adds more tools as well...he's also prompt about responding to suggestions. This app has become like my pocket knife. I don't feel right if I don't have it handy!
