aScale Pro – Balance Pro iPhone app Review

Description aScale Pro – Balance Pro iPhone app:

Do you have small items around the house that you wish you knew how much they weighed?  With the aScale Pro – Balance Pro iPhone app you can take these small objects and just weight them with your phone!  You can find objects such as jewelry, rings, money, pencils, or any other small item that you can think of and you can accurately weight it withing 10%.  The main guideline is that all of the objects that you measure need to be between 1 and 20 grams because anything heavier than that could actually damage your phone.  This app uses four different units of measurement including carat, gram, grain, and ounce.  This scaling app is a great utility to have around and can be used for professional or casual matters.  The iPhone actually uses the accelerometer to help it turn into a kind of mechanical scale that can manage all of these tasks.

Features:

  • This is a little scaling app that you can use on your iPhone.  It uses the accelerometer to be able to weigh small objects and give you the precise weight of each of them
  • To give an example you can do the following:   First of all place you finger on some kind of flat surface that you have available.  You can use a table, chair, or even the floor in order to do this
  • Once you have done this then put your iPhone on top of your finger, making sure all the while that it is still in balance
  • Once you have balanced the phone then you can press the calibrate set button on top to make sure that the balance is correct
  • Next, find an item that you would like to weigh.  This could be anything, including a stamp, a pencil, a ring, a coin, or any other small object that won’t damage your phone.  Then put this item inside of the blue circle
  • With how heavy the small item is, the phone will actually tilt like a mechanical balance to be able to show you just how much it ways.  This app does all of this and makes sure that has an accuracy of 10%

Conclusion:

This app pretty much does exactly what it says it will do.  Which is a good thing.  It doesn’t have a lot of extra features but it still is a fairly cool idea.  This app has gotten a rating of 4 out of 5 stars by iPhone app users and can currently be downloaded for $0.99.

The Holy Bible King James Version iPhone app Review

Description:

There are a lot of different free versions of the Bible out there, however not all of them are great ways to navigate through the Word of God.  The Holy Bible King James Version iPhone app is a paid version of the Bible and lets you navigate through the app easily and efficiently.  One of the great things about this version is the ability that you have to actually search through the complete version of the Bible.  This search function works great and saves you the hassles of having to manually find books and chapters.  You can also record any audio notes that you want.  This way when you receive revelation or inspiration from a certain scripture you can then just speak your mind without having to try and type it out on your phone.  The King James version is the original English translation of the Bible from 1604 and was initially published by the Church of England in 1611.  There are so many different translations of the Bible now that sometimes people can lose the truth in translation. This translation has held true through the test of time and is sure to enlighten you and make you into a much better person
