iPhone usage for TT application

I was getting ready to head out next week and started the fridge today. I couldn't find my bubble level from my previous unit, then I realized I had a program called "iLevel" on my iPhone.
I tried it out and it was great!! It gave me the actual degrees that I was off level. This means you don't have to worry about getting it perfect, the level tells you if you are within the permitted degrees.
This will really come in handy on the road if you are stopped on a slight incline and not sure.

Yup! It's a great guide. Fairly accurate.

I have that same App too. Just out of curiosity, where did you place the phone when taking your measurements? Thanks!

Got it too. I place mine on the floor inside the door and also my counter top as a second opinion. Works very well. I've found though, that my otter box can distort the readings a little.

My primary spot was the counter top, I also checked the floor and the angle of the tongue. I got slightly different measurements between each one but none of significance.
I also found you can just lay it flat, it works the same. I had been thinking that you had to hold it on its side like a normal level.

For any Droid users out there that didn't know, there is a level app for the Droid as well.

I tried that app also. When I found that it wasn't accurate, I got rid of it. It's possible that it wasn't accurate because I have a case on my iphone, but then, who doesn't.

I use that also from time to time. I calibrated mine to a circle vial I have. It. Takes a little bit to get it true, but now it works well.
