Bubble Level
Description
This Android application is used for testing how level an object is, mimicking the appearance of an actual bubble level. This application is useful for avoiding carrying an actual bubble level around, and having a multi-purpose device for testing how level an object is and having other tools all-in-one.
This is a screen capture of the Android application in action. The green oval represents what would be the bubble in an actual bubble level. When in use, the green bubble will appear to "float" away from the center, and as the object the device is laying on is rotated, the green bubble moves closer or further from the center.
This is another screen capture of the program. This time, the device has been rotated the opposite direction of the first screen capture.




Features
  • Visually aids in making a surface level.
  • Mimics the appearance of an actual bubble level.
Version
1.0 - 25 October 2010

Future Plans
The level needs to be more sensitive, adjust accordingly.
Make the level more aesthetically pleasing.

Instructions
Place the phone on a flat object and adjust the object to center the bubble drawn on the device.
