Spirit Level review
One of the many key factors to attractive interior details such as wall paintings is having them hang straight. For a long time, homeowners have had it all wrong when it came to such craft.
However, thanks to Spirit Level, this is bound to change. Spirit level is a handy app that embodies the traditional spirit level equipment used by builders, carpenters, and other ordinary folks to calculate the straightness/level of any surface.
There are a number of factors that make this app particularly handy to homeowners, carpenters and builders at large.
At first impression, Spirit Level looks like something too simple to get the job done. This, in reality, is what makes it so resourceful. You get to choose from three display options that are available on the home screen depending on which level you want to find.
You will always have your ‘calc’ and ‘zero’ button that help you fine-tune the level and compensate for any phone hardware problems and sensitivities. It means that you might have to compare it to a real spirit level for the first run, but after that, you will always be good to go.
The simplicity and straightforwardness make it a handy tool for a handyman who doesn’t have to fidget with controls looking for the right gauge to pop up.
- Bull's Eye Level with roll & pitch gauges screen;
One of the prominent things about Spirit Level is that you don’t have to worry about how to use your app. Depending on the surface angle of inclination, your app should work perfectly fine. With the Bull’s Eye Level with roll and pitch gauges or the vertical and horizontal bubble levels with angular gauges, you should work out the straightness of any surface.
- Accurate Calibration feature;
Usually, your spirit level is as good as your accelerometer. However, thanks to the accurate calibration feature, you will be able to correct the different axis sensitivities and accelerometer misalignments.
- No Permissions Required and No Ads.
I would like to commend Spirit Level for not having ads and permission requests that come with most free apps. You will fall in love with this app in an instant since what this means is basically no disturbances and irritations, thus making you work faster and much more easily.
A good spirit level is accurate, easy to read and easy to deploy. The Spirit Level app meets all these requirements and excels exponentially. Even though its usability might be limited by your smartphone’s capabilities, I am confident that it will do a good job given the right settings.
I can see myself using it to align dry walls, chipboard fittings, timber and so forth. The only problem is you can’t use it in masonry or other rough jobs that might water damage your device or rough it up too much. That is one of the biggest limitations. You might not mind it as a hobbyist.
In spite of the awesomeness of the Spirit Level app, there are certain limitations that come with it, although they are quite minor. You will need a mobile device with Android 3.0 and above to use this app. Other than that, you are good to go.
If you are a handy person who loves ensuring that your wall hangings, plumbing lines, etc. are straight and in their rightful location, then Spirit Level is the application you are bound to fall in love with from the get-go.
However, it is important to note that this app is as good as its accelerometer and therefore you should not trust it fully, as your device may produce somewhat inaccurate results. It’s advisable to align your Spirit Level measurements to those of a physical one to produce the most accurate results.
The Spirit Level app is every homeowner’s handy tool. It’s convenient, and high accuracy levels is what makes it the best app for all your interior design and building needs.
- No ads and special permissions required to run to use the app
- Free and very easy to use
- Quite accurate once you do the initial calibrations well
- The app’s accuracy depends on the accelerometer quality
- Its usability depends on your device’s ability to endure the environment
