Amazingly some of these Android tools even use less storage than some apps that perform just one of their many functions. Here are two of the most highly rated Android Swiss Army Knife apps.

Super Swiss Army Knife

This virtual Swiss Army Knife, has eight functions that include: simple measure, distance measure, cross vertical measure, flashlight, compass, bubble level, plumb and magnifier. Besides, these cool features a home screen widget is also included.

Detailed features:

  1. Simple Measure: A combination of ruler and protractor. The Ruler provides accurate scale in centimeters and inches on the phone screen (ensure that you enter the correct size of the device’s screen). Diagonal ruler supports dynamic measurements. The protractor on the other hand can be used to measure angles from 0 to 180 degrees.
  2. Distance Measure: Simple 3 steps, using your phone to measure the distance and height of any object.
  3. Cross Vertical Measure: Visually tells you whether items, such as pictures, are hung crooked – it also reveals the angle of deviation.
  4. Flashlight: If your Android has a LED you can use this function to make a flashlight out of it.
  5. Compass: Simulating a real compass with practical and precise orientation instructions – also dynamically shows the current direction of the phone.
  6. Bubble Level: Accurately simulates a real bubble level.
  7. Plumb: Simulating the plumb to determine whether items are vertical and shows the angle of deviation as long as the camera is on.
  8. Magnifier: If your phone has a built-in camera Super Swiss Army Knife can turn your phone into a digital magnifying glass.

Swiss Army Knife

This Android Swiss Army knife app doesn’t have all the functions of ” Super Swiss Army Knife”, but then again it does have some features that the other app doesn’t have.

You will need Android 2.2+ to use the app, in any case this app’s toolbox includes a:

  • Flashlight
  • Ruler
  • Timer
  • Stopwatch
  • Compass
  • Bubble level
  • Calculator and a
  • Magnifying glass

You wont find any special features such as 3d compass, talking level, psychedelic flashlight or the like. What the developer tried to do was create a lightweight, fast and easy to use set of tools that can be quickly accessed from the home screen.

Of such, the app is half the size of standalone tools you will find in other flashlight, magnifying glass and compass apps. This way you’ll save a lot of disk space.
