Product Features

  • Flashlight
  • Unit converter
  • Compass
  • Calculator
  • Magnifying glass

Product Description

This app contains a set of tiny tools: a flashlight, a unit converter, a timer, a stop watch, a compass a bubble level, a calculator, a magnifying glass (Android 2.2+ required), a mirror (Android 2.3+ and front camera required) and a ruler.
Each tool does what it is supposed to do. There's no space for special effects like 3d compass, talking level, psychedelic flashlight etc: the goal is to have a lightweight, fast and easy to use set of tools, one "tap" away from your home screen.
This app is half the size of a common "standalone tool" like a compass, a flashlight or a magnifying glass. This way you'll save a lot of disk space. You'll save network consumption too, not only for the first download but for every update too.
It doesn't require network access, the permission to write on your flash memory or the permission to read your contacts.
Suggestions, like new features to implement, new tools etc. are welcome. If you want to contribute a translation, please let us know by sending us an email ;)
If you find a bug, please contact us using the "Report a bug" main menu function.
Note: if you write a comment on the Android Market without sending us an email, it's difficult for us to fix the problem, because usually we need some information (such as smartphone type and version, a way to replicate the problem, etc.)

Note:
- Depending on the hardware capabilities of your smartphone, some tools may not be present
- The permission to use the camera is required in order to turn on the camera flash LED. Some smartphones (for instance the Google Nexus S) don't light the flash LED if the camera is not running. If you check the most popular flashlight apps, you'll find out that they all require this permission. Swiss Army Knife doesn't shot any photos, doesn't save multimedia info onto the flash card and doesn't send anything on the internet: it doesn't require the network permission at all.

Some very useful features but am left wondering about the accuracy of the compass. Am certain the sun in my neck of the woods Doesn't rise in the west. Could be dangerous!

4.0 out of 5 stars Swiss army knife 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Very good. Has loads of useful gadgets, including a compass, although this does seem to have a flaw, in that it doesn't self calibrate north-south. As I got it mainly for the compass, this was somewhat disappointing. Could be an easy fix though (hint, hint).

I installed this app for the compass. There is no compass. So why do people keep saying there is. Just wondered.

5.0 out of 5 stars ok so it won't open a bottle of beer 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
but its a bit of fun and free and has several utilities in one place that you might otherwise have several shortcuts for.

It really is horses for courses. If you happy with several icons for several apps (apps that do one of hte functions of the swiss army knife but that you have chosen) then no need to bother with this one.

On the other hand if you want to minimise the clutter on your screen and not fussed what the app looks like as long a the light comes on or the spirit level works or stopwatch, timer, calc, ruler etc then this puts 10 apps in one icon and its free.

I suppose anothe plus is that you will only have one app mining data and not 10

It is a good app and has many useful qualities, some I don't understand, but the calculator is complicated and I don't know why you need a bubble measure

4.0 out of 5 stars 9/10 For the app
It all works well except the compass. That remains 180 degrees out - and no obvious way to fix it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obviously not a Blade
Considering it was free it was a good deal. It has several functions including compass, level timer, stop watch. All seem to work fine so a fair puchase.
