Jack of Tools makes your phone into a virtual tool belt. Want to know exactly where you are? Ever wonder how fast that roller coaster ride really is? How high are you? Or maybe you just want to get that desk level.  Jack of Tools includes a compass (Mango only), virtual level, your Earthly coordinates, your altitude, your speed and heading (including average and maximum speed markers), base distance, and a sound meter.  

Jack of Tools includes options to keep your phone from going idle while you use it and allows you to control the sampling if you want to adjust accuracy vs. responsiveness.  Selectable Metric or US Standard units as well as UTM.  Optional compass reading as Magnetic or True Heading.

    Compass was a pain to calibrate and never could get the level to work. With fixes this app could be fantastic
