It’s the Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK and, thanks to Queen Lizzy holding tight to the throne for 60 years, we get four days off, which can mean only one thing: D.I.Y. Yes, while the singletons play, married couples up and down the country will be enduring IKEA and making home ‘improvements’. And if that sounds like what you have in store, arm yourself with the Swiss Army Knife of apps: Smart Tools…
D.I.Y – For most, myself included, it should stand for Don’t Involve Yourself. The easiest way to display your epically sweary vocabulary, batter your thumbs, and demonstrate beyond any conceivable doubt how utterly unhandy you really are, most ‘little jobs’ around the house should be left to trained professionals, but if you really must have a go yourself, then this is an essential app for you and your doomed endeavours.
Combining five sets of pro tools for any conceivable household task, Smart Tools lets you accurately measure (deep breath now) length, angle and slope with Smart Ruler Pro; distance, height, width, and area with Smart Measure Pro; sound level and vibrations with Sound Meter Pro; detect metal, check compass points and utilise GPS with Smart Compass Pro; and shine a light with Smart Light Pro’s flashlight.
Covering all bases and eventualities, if your long weekend is going to be made to feel even longer by the threat of imminent improvements, download now!
