Gadget Box

We featured the handy BlackBerry 10 tool application Gadget Box just a short while ago and I'm pleased that thanks to all your contributions in the comments and our forums several new features have been implemented in the latest update to version 1.7 - just in time for the USA Z10 launch. 

It adds some interesting gadgets and functions like a Camera View for the protractor. It should be handy for any carpenter in a pinch and lets you view any object with the camera while dialing in an angle with your finger. Also, you can enter an exact target angle which you can then use the viewfinder to match, if say, you were looking for an exact-angle cut in a piece of wood that your mitre wouldn't match. 

Also newly added was an infinite Ruler, which was a noticeably absent gadget in previous releases, but has now been added to the growing list of utilities and functions. Basically, you can use it measure things longer than your phone. It's a bit tricky to get the hang of, but you "hold" the ruler in place on the screen and slide your phone along the object you want to measure (make sure it is smooth!). Lift your finger, and repeat the process until the entire object has been measured.

From CrackBerry's own comments section, there was a great suggestion for speed warnings on the speedometer. Now, both an upper and lower boundary for a warning can be set, and you can be alerted both visually and audibly. There are eight audio languages to choose from, if you count English with a UK accent separately from English without one.

A perfect example of Team CrackBerry engaging in conversations with developers. This is what will make BlackBerry 10 so awesome. Good job Team CrackBerry.
