(I’m turning off the cap-locks. But for that authentic infomercial feel, you can keep pretending that I’m shouting.)
If you’re like me, you don’t want to leave the house with dozens of gadgets strapped to your waist… but you never know when you might need a handy tool. That’s what makes the Photics: Toolbox so valuable. it rests quietly on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. It’s ready for when you need it.
For example, the Photics: Toolbox has a ruler. When you’re on the go, you’re probably not going have a tape measure or a wooden ruler. But with the Photics: Toolbox on your mobile device, you can take measurements quickly and easily.
Just place the object you want to measure against the screen of your iphone, ipod touch or ipad. Align the object with the top-left corner of the screen and then simply touch the screen at the bottom-right corner of the object. Instantly, the horizontal and vertical measurements are displayed on the screen. It’s like two rulers in one. And if inches are not your thing, simply hit the double-arrow icon to switch to metric measurements. It’s just that easy.
With the digital display of the Photics: Toolbox ruler, reading the information is a cinch. There’s no need to squint your eyes to count tiny little lines. With a simple touch from your finger, two red lines will track your movements. For iPad owners, you can take advantage of your big screen size, enabling you to measure larger objects with ease. Use it to measure envelopes, photographs or other rectangular shaped objects.
Next up is the Photics: Toolbox – Stopwatch. This handy gadget was designed for tracking time, while maintaining a historic feel. With a touch of a button, your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch will make an authentic click sound and begin to count off the seconds that pass. It also has the ticking sound that you’d expect from a time piece such as this. Just listen to the testimonials from these imaginary people…
“It really feels like an actual stopwatch. It sounds great and it’s easy to read the time. I like how it displays the information in digitally and traditionally.”
“Dude, like wow! Seriously, it’s one cool stopwatch!”
But if those made up quotes are not enough to convince you, then check out these additional features. When you want to stop the stopwatch, just touch the top button again. You can also press the top-left button to reset the time. Yes, that’s right… it’s a stopwatch that starts and stops! If you are sensitive to the ticking sound, don’t worry. Simply press the bottom-left icon to toggle sound effects. The Photics: Toolbox will remember your overall sound preference.
