Toolbox PRO: smart meter Tools
Description
The most handy measuring tool kit in the world. Turning your iPhone or iPad into a multi functional measuring device with: metronome, stopwatch, timer, seismometer, ruler, surface level and many more. Currently, there are 13 measuring tools + Flashlight in the tool box: - BAROMETER It gives you a nice and clear local atmospheric pressure, obtained from the barometric sensor in your device - ALTIMETER This tool takes advantage of the built in GPS to give you the precise elevation above the sea level. - COMPASS A pretty and well-made compass for navigation, traveling and direction reference purposes. - TESLAMETER It takes advantage of the built-in magnetometer in your iPhone/iPod touch, allows you to monitor the strength of magnetic field all around. There are a range of real-life applications for this useful item, such as: metal detector, AC magnetic fields, or finding low-magnetic places for sleeping - METRONOME It is the most precise and stable metronome on the app store. Whether you are a musician, a music teacher, a beginner at playing music or even a golfer, this tool provides you a set of powerful features that can satisfy all your needs. - STOPWATCH Whenever you need a precise and professional stopwatch for sport activities like: sprints, jogging, this tool is a must have. Among its features are: intuitive interface, lap and split modes support, or send log results to your email - TIMER There are unlimited applications of using timer in daily life, such as: egg timer, tea timer, cooking, alarm clock, etc. The timer tool satisfies all of those needs by many of its features: up to 5 timers running simultaneously, count down and count up support, intuitive and convenient duration setup using preset and gestures - SEISMOMETER Taking advantage of the built-in accelerometer in your iPhone, this tool detects and visualizes any vibrations and moves of the iPhone. So, why not using this excellent feature to help your iPhone self-protected like a car when combined with an alarm? Or another great application is to test how smooth the car is on a test drive - PLUMB BOB This is an instrument to check if an object is perfectly vertical/plumb and has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians. It suits any types of your needs, such as: hanging objects, carpenter work, brick layer or building construction - SURFACE LEVEL This tool facilitates the measurement of the slope of whatever surface you want to check. Most importantly, its accuracy is ensured at the maximum level by the support to different sensitivities that allow you to detect subtle slopes (floor leveling, furniture arrangement,..) - SPIRIT/BUBBLE LEVEL It is a simple but extremely useful tool in the set to check if an object is balanced. Its applications range from entertained purposes such as checking pool billiard tables in the bar to serious usages like constructions, carpenter, etc - RULER The ruler helps you precisely know the lengths of objects all around you, such as pens, tables, pictures. We built it to become even more than just a normal ruler: longest distance measuring capability, and up to 6 units support - PROTRACTOR Have you ever forgotten your protractor at school or when you urgently look for a protractor to measure any kind of angles in real life?
The dB meter disappeared from my PRO

Where are is the dB meter?
Too hard to use

Has all the tools I need for work.
No dB meter
by Uncadonl on 2020/12/17 19:43
While a dB meter is shown on the ‘demo’ panel. This app doesn’t actually have one. It does have a seismometer. So, if there’s ever an earthquake, I’ll know how strong it is, but I won’t know how loud. A little case of false advertising?
iPhone 12 Pro Ruler is not accurate

iPhone 12 Pro Ruler is not accurate Subject says it all.
Ruler wrong on iPhone 12
by AEB-C on 2020/11/19 18:32
The ruler is not to scale on the iPhone 12 (a physical ruler shows the measurements are off by nearly 20 percent). This should have been tested before release.

Advertising is exploitative
by Labmanager on 2020/10/11 21:27
The advertising in the “free version” is so intrusive the product ceases to be usable in about an hour, not enough time to test and evaluate product . Its greedy. The product itself is excellent however . I paid the premium and the product performs beautifully but they need to stop pretending there is a “free” version. Its deceptive advertising.
The metronome has no sound.
by tooandpoo on 2020/09/21 04:48
Many utilities seem to work but I really wanted the metronome. There is no sound despite my trying multiple settings.
Doesn’t include all the features of the free app
by bkdavy on 2020/08/30 19:46
Purchased this to access the settings on the dB meter, only to discover the dB meter isn’t included in the pro version. Like the available tools, but feel cheated.
Great App
by 6643566774433245 on 2020/08/15 16:05
Has so many uses all right at hand. Wish it had volume level (decibels) and WiFi signal strength.

Decibel Meter Disappeared
by the.iron.mandarin on 2020/06/20 01:09
This was a great app, but now less so. The decibel meter disappeared, even though it’s still advertised in the screenshots.
Rip off
by Rubalito on 2020/05/27 17:30
Will not work on iphone 10. Messed with it for an hour and no luck. Cant find any help on the internet
Just be nice if
by Pisczum on 2020/03/13 18:39
It would be nice if there was an information sheet explaining the different tools. 1 is totally new and 1 I’ve heard of just never dealt with so I have to research them and learn . A simple page about each tool explaining what’s its used for what it detects and how to understand the results . But I like the app well laid out easy to use works great
Purchased for dB reader— app has none
by Tunnelwasher on 2020/02/25 12:56
I purchased this app specifically for the dB reader only to find there is not one on the app. Literally the first picture on the app description is one of a dB reader. I just scrolled through all of the options on the app — even had my coworker verify he did not see it as an option— and did not find. Garbage!
dB Meter Removed
by Tsanoc on 2020/02/07 12:20
I still make use of the app at times but as others mentioned I made great use of the now missing, though /still/ advertised, dB meter.
No more dB meter!
by tomthumbktm on 2020/01/17 04:49
They removed the dB meter and now want a monthly fee for it in a different app. I originally upgraded the app to get the dB meter. I sent them messages and got no response. I would not have purchased had I known they were removing some of the functionality.
I love the pro version of this app!
by morriswj on 2019/12/23 18:27
It takes full advantage of all the great sensors in my iPhone: magnetometer, barometer, motion sensor, etc. The bonus is the Morse code generator that can turn your camera flash into an emergency SOS transmitter! Very cool.
Sells your data, even after paying
by JohnnyTen on 2019/12/22 16:38
Even after paying for the pro version, they sell your data to third party vendors. Sadly, I’m deleting this great app.
Best toolbox on iOS

Been using this for years and it is well worth it. Great UI, easy to use, and they actually keep it updated. Ten ⭐️’s for sure!!
Pro version

No decibel meter have free version too. Feel like I have been tricked
False Advertising
by ORHobbes on 2019/12/10 04:59
This app used to have a decibel meter in it when I purchased it. That was the main reason I bought it. Then they removed the decibel meter and did not refund me any of the money I paid or offer me a substitute. So they basically stole back the product I paid them for. And to make matters worse, the screenshots in the App Store still show that it has a decibel meter included. So they are still tricking people into paying for something they don’t get. I am reporting them to Apple for false advertising.
iOS 13, Does Not Open. Don’t Buy!
by drjonnt on 2019/11/30 05:25
Paid for, Pro version. Haven’t opened it in several months, and it has worked before. Tried to run tonight, wouldn’t open. Deleted and reinstalled—>still doesn’t open. Notice there are no reviews in a year? Looking like an abandoned product. Beware.
Listing picture shows dB meter
by Janman12 on 2019/11/28 17:00
The listing “picture” shows the dB meter yet there isn’t one, one of the featured reviews even mentioned the dB meter. A little deceiving I believe.

by purple chtorr on 2019/10/22 00:20
This was a perfect app, 5 star. Since upgrading to IOS 13, it crashes on starting. There was no response from the developer. I deleted and redown loaded the app. It still crashes on opening. Same for both versions, pro and regular.
Update - Thumbs Down
by MikeApex on 2019/10/21 01:18
Update- no development in a year and the app crashes everytime on iOS 13. I paid for tool box pro for one app alone the decibel meter and then they moved it out and now they’re charging $8 for the pro version of that up. It has all the same features are used to have in the app that I already paid for. This is a BS software development model to extract more money from paying customers.

This app doesn’t have the Decibel meter As advertised I would like a refund. This Is false advertisement.
Deceptive
by jreichel on 2019/09/11 00:37
I wanted the decibel meter. Showed in the store that it had it. Bought the pro version to find out that not only didn’t it have the decibel meter, but that it didn’t have anything else than the free version other than to take away the ads. Classic bait and switch for my $4
why move decibel ?

why move decibel meter,that the reason i bought this APP
Need my dB meter back.
by AlphaNode on 2019/07/15 19:42
I was using the dB meter on the free version and got annoyed with the incident adds so I brought the pro version and NO dB METER!!! That’s the only reason I upgraded! I noticed they sell a dB meter for $9. What a bait and switch ripoff.
Great tool

Took out the Decibel meter and took out the main reason I got it.
Continual improvements

Does not include Db tool
by ericmlawson on 2019/06/06 07:34
The only reason I downloaded this tool was for the decibel meter. The basic version did not include it so I thought perhaps it was a full version feature only. Nope! Does not include a Decibel Meter (FFT) at all! Even though it is shown CLEARLY in the photos/videos. If it was a feature in the previous versions, it’s gone now. I never write reviews but had to say something to hopefully prevent others from making the same mistake I made.
DB Crashes
by Avsafety on 2019/06/01 17:40
6/1/19. The DB interface looks great and works for about 5 seconds. Then it disappears and the app has crashed. Tried many times. I am on an iPhone SE with the latest iOS. I had graded it 5 stars for how it appeared. Now a one star after trying to use it. B.
False Advertising and No Response
by Acritacens on 2019/05/07 03:44
I bought this app because the pictures showed a sound meter. No sound meter and no response when I emailed a polite question about it. And no refund either. So I’m stuck with basically a ruler and a flashlight. Weeee.
Where did the Db meter go?
by Otherwise happy with app. on 2019/04/29 02:36
I’ve had this app for years and then one day I need the DB meter and it’s gone! The developer removed it without warning or reason. Otherwise I love this app, but removing functionality from a purchased and is really bad form.
Locks up

No dB meter!
by RAMbu on 2019/04/21 16:53
Picture shows a dB meter. Says it’s option 10. Shows it in 2 pictures, so I get the app. The PRO version, and lo and behold there’s no dB meter in the tool box. Option 10 is a Teslameter. I’ll update review with an updated app.
Sound meter missing
by Jim gricci on 2019/04/17 04:51
I purchased the pro version then they removed the sound meter. What a rip off. Why does the apple store allow such false programming? There was no notification of the dB meter being removed. The sound meter is why I downloaded the application.

At the onset it seems to be OK but how do I really know it’s telling me what I need to know and second of all where do I find out what’s acceptable levels? And how does this unit actually sense.
Are you enjoying the app?
by airzero on 2019/03/06 05:08
Maybe, maybe not, but I’m not enjoying pop-ups for sure. The app works good but the design is not appealing at all and the number of clicks is not minimized.
No decimal meter - False advertising
by MarcusW.527 on 2019/02/16 20:55
The pictures in the App Store app clearly show the decibel meter. It’s not there. Only reason I bought the app. Would like a refund
Does not unlock all features.
by ripjc55 on 2019/02/11 05:49
I mainly used toolbox (free version) for its decibel meter. I purchased the pro version and it doesn’t even have the decibel meter on it. Didn’t think unlocking everything would cause me to lose access to one of the tools. Pathetic.
Things missed
by Mike&Pie on 2019/02/09 23:19
I miss the decimal meter. And yes I know my iPad does not have a flashlight but I do not understand why they just don’t turn the screen bright white. That would be better than nothing, and will work in a pinch. Other than that not a bad app. Thanks

Been using this app for years, only to find in this latest update the sound meter tool has been removed. It’s one of the measures I use more frequently. Yet it’s still a screen shot in the previews.
Removed the decibel meter
by jo451a on 2019/01/09 15:51
It makes me sad and a bit frustrated that I purchased this app specifically for the decibel meter, now with a new phone I needed to download the app again, and magically that no longer is part of the app. Not sure if I will keep in the app installed or not. I feel like I just tossed money out the door.
Deception
by Zagmeyer on 2018/12/20 13:20
I have been using Toolbox for the decibel meter in the free version. Upgraded to pro as its display on iTunes shows picture of decibel meter so I purchased it for supposed advanced capabilities and found that once downloaded it does not include the decibel meter at all. Deception at its finest , would not recommend purchase of anything from this company.
Do not buy
by AbcdDanDanDanDan on 2018/12/20 09:41
I paid to unlock the app and get the pro version for additional features in the dB meter. Well, to my surprise, the DB meter is completely removed from the paid app. This is despite the fact that it is clearly depicted in the picture for the pro version that I bought. Do not buy.
Why did the sound meter get removed?
by sound level on 2018/12/11 01:31
Perhaps someone was silly enough to take the sound meter as calibrated equipment and blew some noise in court. Seriously, that was a great tool. Can we have it back in next release (soon)?
Good app, but...
by AriaLHM on 2018/10/23 01:04
Why did you remove the dB meter with no warning in the update information? The dB meter is why some of us paid for the app. This is very poor form. Also, please allow user determined intermittent beeps/alarms within each timer. This way people have reminders to turn or flip things when cooking, or change exercises. Another update with no change is just poor business. I will definitely NOT recommend your app, and will not be buying any future products until you make this up to your longtime customers.

Yay, works again
by The emusifyer on 2018/10/13 01:32
This app was just updated and finally works again but the developer took a looong time to fix. Shouldn’t have to wait months for a paid app to be fixed from a fatal bug that caused it to crash on opening.
Doesn’t work on phones with a notch
by hepisbeth on 2018/10/12 18:56
On phones with a notch the ruler doesn’t work correctly. You can get the control stuck behind the notch and be unable to grab it again. Tap frequency weighting in settings for the dB tool and instant crash if it was set to itu468.

by Thejimguy on 2018/07/31 11:41
The main reason for me to purchase this app was for the decibel level meter. Have been rolling this app out on to our manufacturing floor. Much to my surprise, the company removed the decibel meter, making this worthless for the use intended. I have written the company about this, but have received no reply. Why two stars then? The products that they do have within the app are god and work well, just not what I need. Edit: Four emails to them/support. ZERO replies. dB meter still shows in their “store”. One star due to their lack of customer support.

False Advertising
by RioJade on 2018/07/24 00:02
This app does not have a decibel meter. I had the regular version and paid to unlock everything but the decibel meter didn’t show up. Thinking maybe I misread the information about the app and made a mistake I thought the PRO version would have it. Reading up it said it did. I purchased the app and no decibel meter. I wrote the company and got no response. I’m very put out. Edit: about a week after I wrote this review they removed the decibel meet from their blurb about the app; however, as that was a huge reason for my having purchased the app, twice technically, I am still very unhappy. They have never responded to my emails and I am writing it off as a loss. Very unhappy.

Jack of all trades, master of none.
by teger33 on 2018/07/09 00:18
Has a lot of functions, but I’m not sure it will become my “go-to” app. It does many things your iPhone does already, so you’re likely to ignore the timers (because Siri is so convenient for that) or the flashlight (because we’re accustomed to sliding up for that). Additionally, those functions which require sounds to be generated will only do so if your phone is not in silent mode (where native iOS alarms will conveniently override this). Some instruments are easy to accidentally calibrate without realizing. It might be nicer to have calibration functions more out of the way, just as the resetting to defaults is hidden in the instrument’s settings menu. Of all the great things about the metronome (ability to store a list of tempos, time signatures, audible subdivisions, Italian labels on the dial), it is a travesty that you can’t dial in a tempo by ear without a cacophonous mess (The metronome audibly resets to beat one continuously as the dial is moved while playing). I don’t know of any musicians who wouldn’t require the ability to adjust a metronome while it is playing. Lastly, the instruments which allow measurements to be graphed would be more useful if labels for units of measurement were included on the graph (though I have not yet checked to see if exported data files include labels).
Not what I thought I was buying.
by DawnStr8 on 2018/07/04 21:08

Seismic activity data
by LearDog on 2018/06/21 19:12
I may not have figured the app out - but it seems that the seismic app doesn’t run ‘in background’ or when the screen is locked, for example, at night. I was hoping to record information over night but it stopped recording soon after I set it down. Am I doing something wrong?
Pretty sleazy tactic
by otterman on 2018/06/13 03:15
As others have pointed out, the decibel meter has been removed from the pro version. Looking at the version history, there was NO mention of its removal in the release notes. The last reference was to CHANGES to the decibel meter, indicating it was still part of the app. I guess now it’s turned up again as a separate paid-for app. Do developers really think people will invest MORE money in their apps after a move like that? Sleazy SkyPaw!
Feel tricked into buying the pro version
by top snp on 2018/06/12 09:20
I paid for the pro Version to get an unlocked decibel meter. It turns out that the decibel meter wasn’t even available in a provision. how can the decibel meter be in the free version and not be in the provision . On top of that the decibel meter has features that says needs to be unlocked buy buying pro to use????? Other than that its a 5 star app, but -2stars for tricking me.
Beware - dB Meter removal in latest “update”

I downloaded version 5.2.3 onto my iPhone 7s June 2018 and there are only 13 tools- it’s missing the Decibel tool, which was the only one I really wanted. I would have paid the $3.99 just for that one. I’ll follow up this review if the developers make good on the promise of this app.

This is a great product. However, a week ago it suddenly stopped launching on my iPhone 7 Plus. Still works fine on my iPad. So I went ahead and did most recent iOS update, and still the same. Check App Store for update, none. What’s going on here? Hence a 3 star rating this round. UPDATE: So I deleted the app from my iPhone and then reloaded it. Now it launches but when I go into settings or attempt to change to another tool the app crashes, hence downgrading to a 1 star rating, for their paid for PRO version no less! UPDATE TO UPDATE: App now works. However, the barometer still doesn’t work here in Utah. Others do. I use in inHG setting. That is why it only gets 4 stars. Hopefully the barometer will get fixed and working.
Jack of all trades, master of none.

Has a lot of functions, but I’m not sure it will become my “go-to” app. It does many things your iPhone does already, so you’re likely to ignore the timers (because Siri is so convenient for that) or the flashlight (because we’re accustomed to sliding up for that). Additionally, those functions which require sounds to be generated will only do so if your phone is not in silent mode (where native iOS alarms will conveniently override this). Some instruments are easy to accidentally calibrate without realizing. It might be nicer to have calibration functions more out of the way, just as the resetting to defaults is hidden in the instrument’s settings menu. Of all the great things about the metronome (ability to store a list of tempos, time signatures, audible subdivisions, Italian labels on the dial), it is a travesty that you can’t dial in a tempo by ear without a cacophonous mess (The metronome audibly resets to beat one continuously as the dial is moved while playing). I don’t know of any musicians who wouldn’t require the ability to adjust a metronome while it is playing. Lastly, the instruments which allow measurements to be graphed would be more useful if labels for units of measurement were included on the graph (though I have not yet checked to see if exported data files include labels).
Feel tricked into buying the pro version
by top snp on 2018/06/12 09:20
I paid for the pro Version to get an unlocked decibel meter. It turns out that the decibel meter wasn’t even available in a provision. how can the decibel meter be in the free version and not be in the provision . On top of that the decibel meter has features that says needs to be unlocked buy buying pro to use????? Other than that its a 5 star app, but -2stars for tricking me.
Tool box Rocks !
by Tzer on 2018/02/23 12:13
I’ve had the regular version for a year more now everything I’ve had works great just upgraded to the pro version. I am a professional audio engineers of the decibel meter has been coming in handy for a while, the Metronome works great. I haven’t had much need for the seismograph… But I’ve got to say the altimeter and the compass it made for some interesting conversations while I’m on the road… I now also understand what I barometer is and how it functions. And believe it or not the plumbob and leveling portion of this have helped a few times making sure staging was level. Two thumbs up for sure… And if I had a third time and point at skyward! JTJ
False Advertising
by RioJade on 2018/07/24 00:02
This app does not have a decibel meter. I had the regular version and paid to unlock everything but the decibel meter didn’t show up. Thinking maybe I misread the information about the app and made a mistake I thought the PRO version would have it. Reading up it said it did. I purchased the app and no decibel meter. I wrote the company and got no response. I’m very put out. Edit: about a week after I wrote this review they removed the decibel meet from their blurb about the app; however, as that was a huge reason for my having purchased the app, twice technically, I am still very unhappy. They have never responded to my emails and I am writing it off as a loss. Very unhappy.
Instant crashes. Will not open at all anymore.
by Stargazerguy on 2017/09/29 14:04
It instantly crashes on both iOS 11.0 and 11.0.1. I have an iPhone 7 Plus. I’ve tried it many times with no luck. All my other apps work perfectly. Your response worked. Thank you. I’ve revised my rating to five stars. Thank you for your response and for working hard to once again make this an excellent app.
Fantastic but broken
by birdcatcher9 on 2018/04/09 20:49
It has been really cool and interesting to have this app for the past few weeks. I have the Pro version. Starting a couple of nights ago, however, it crashes on opening! I can&#39;t use it now!! I have tried changing my iPhone 7-plus back to standard zoom (as was recommended with a previous update), but no luck.
Love it!
by MikeMac on 2018/03/11 19:30
I really love this app. It has all the tools I have seen, except for one, and it’s an iPhone 5-only tool. I am anxious to see what, if any, tools are added in the future. I am constantly amazed at what can be done via a smartphone. Not only are the tools functional and highly accurate, but the visual and audio elements of this app are outstanding. I love the industrial look, sound, and feel.
Took away the reason I bought it.
by Thejimguy on 2018/07/31 11:41
The main reason for me to purchase this app was for the decibel level meter. Have been rolling this app out on to our manufacturing floor. Much to my surprise, the company removed the decibel meter, making this worthless for the use intended. I have written the company about this, but have received no reply. Why two stars then? The products that they do have within the app are god and work well, just not what I need. Edit: Four emails to them/support. ZERO replies. dB meter still shows in their “store”. One star due to their lack of customer support.
Seismic activity data
by LearDog on 2018/06/21 19:12
I may not have figured the app out - but it seems that the seismic app doesn’t run ‘in background’ or when the screen is locked, for example, at night. I was hoping to record information over night but it stopped recording soon after I set it down. Am I doing something wrong?
Not good
by BadmanRick on 2018/04/12 13:04
Opened the new update on an app I paid money for only to find the Decibel tool I use most has been removed. The main reason I purchased this app was for the decibel tool. Now you want me to spend 4.99 to get an app I already paid for. You said if I had toolbox pro with decibel in it it would not be removed. YOU REMOVED IT. I’m not happy about this.
Works great! But I could really use a guidebook to help explain the readings.
by -Kyptastic- on 2018/03/09 17:47
Works great! But I could really use a guidebook to help explain the readings I am getting from the teslameter. With alert spikes and the red screen are a little confusing I was reading up on the basics of a Tesla/gauss meter and I’m still a little unsure it I’m reading electrical activity(power lines in the wall) or magnetic metal.
Good app, but...
by AriaLHM on 2018/10/23 01:04
Why did you remove the dB meter with no warning in the update information? The dB meter is why some of us paid for the app. This is very poor form. Also, please allow user determined intermittent beeps/alarms within each timer. This way people have reminders to turn or flip things when cooking, or change exercises. Another update with no change is just poor business. I will definitely NOT recommend your app, and will not be buying any future products until you make this up to your longtime customers.
Very well done
by Wktx on 2018/04/11 23:21
This is really well done. It’s like several apps all rolled into one, and each one is really good. I am always surprised at what it includes, and I always end up fooling around with the other tool things that I didn’t know I wanted, but turns out are super interesting. Really worthwhile app, and I don’t say that often.
Advertising is exploitative
by Labmanager on 2020/10/11 21:27
The advertising in the “free version” is so intrusive the product ceases to be usable in about an hour, not enough time to test and evaluate product . Its greedy. The product itself is excellent however . I paid the premium and the product performs beautifully but they need to stop pretending there is a “free” version. Its deceptive advertising.
Does everything you would expect and more.
by Harley Nut on 2017/12/04 18:59
Precision and accuracy, while not the same, are very much present in this app. I have yet to find a problem with this app and have found it very helpful whenever I have used it, which is often.
Just be nice if
by Pisczum on 2020/03/13 18:39
It would be nice if there was an information sheet explaining the different tools. 1 is totally new and 1 I’ve heard of just never dealt with so I have to research them and learn . A simple page about each tool explaining what’s its used for what it detects and how to understand the results . But I like the app well laid out easy to use works great
Does not include Db tool
by ericmlawson on 2019/06/06 07:34
The only reason I downloaded this tool was for the decibel meter. The basic version did not include it so I thought perhaps it was a full version feature only. Nope! Does not include a Decibel Meter (FFT) at all! Even though it is shown CLEARLY in the photos/videos. If it was a feature in the previous versions, it’s gone now. I never write reviews but had to say something to hopefully prevent others from making the same mistake I made.
Instant Crash
by 2daz4u on 2018/04/07 20:47
This app used to be a valuable tool. Now it opens, but as soon as I try to select anything; another tool, settings, etc. the app crashes and immediately closes on my iPhone 7 Plus running the most recent iOS. Big disappointment.
Keep crash after upgrade
by kschois on 2018/04/12 00:44
Version 5.2.1 keep crashes every time I turn tool rotary to others or select Setting icon right lower corner. I am using iPhone 8 plus and iOS 11.3. Please fix it ASAP. ========= Update 5.2.2 fixed the crash issue. Thank you for quick fix.
Not so good on iPhone 8plus
by Durfmeister on 2017/09/24 05:27
This app worked wonderfully on my old iPhone 5s, but I just got a new iPhone 8plus today and all it does is crash on the new 11 program. OK- a day later and they must have updated the app because it now works wonderfully again!
Last update causing app to crash...
by Mylifeisnotmyjob on 2018/04/09 20:14
When app starts it closes down but still showing in background and have downloaded and reinstalled with no improvement... App has run 100% before update... 5 STAR APP hell of a ToolBox...
Things missed
by Mike&Pie on 2019/02/09 23:19
I miss the decimal meter. And yes I know my iPad does not have a flashlight but I do not understand why they just don’t turn the screen bright white. That would be better than nothing, and will work in a pinch. Other than that not a bad app. Thanks
Pretty sleazy tactic
by otterman on 2018/06/13 03:15
As others have pointed out, the decibel meter has been removed from the pro version. Looking at the version history, there was NO mention of its removal in the release notes. The last reference was to CHANGES to the decibel meter, indicating it was still part of the app. I guess now it’s turned up again as a separate paid-for app. Do developers really think people will invest MORE money in their apps after a move like that? Sleazy SkyPaw!
Greatest tool for iPhone EVER!!
by DDATL13 on 2018/04/09 18:23
Ok now that I’ve told Y’all that this is the greatest app ever created for the iPhone. There is one piece of bad news. Not Compatible with iOS 11.3. 5 stars but waiting patiently on the update. Crashes every time I launch and select a tool. PLEASE UPDADE!!!!!!!!
Crashes
by M1ndh4x3r on 2017/08/03 07:05
Randomly crashes on opening of certain tools on iPad Air 2 running 10.3.3. Please fix ASAP. Edit: crash issue seems to have been fixed by the latest update. This developer cares, back to five stars.
Update - Thumbs Down
by MikeApex on 2019/10/21 01:18
Update- no development in a year and the app crashes everytime on iOS 13. I paid for tool box pro for one app alone the decibel meter and then they moved it out and now they’re charging $8 for the pro version of that up. It has all the same features are used to have in the app that I already paid for. This is a BS software development model to extract more money from paying customers.
Crashes
by BruceKellogg on 2017/09/30 18:56
In iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 11, this app crashes on startup. Developer really cares, the new release completely fixed the previous crash issue. Revised rating to five stars.
New. Pro version will not run on my 8s or iPad
by Bh9025 on 2018/10/20 12:14
Original toolbox worked fine, new upgrade wont even open, I have deleted and downloaded new copy and it still will not open. Sad.
Crashes after last update. iPhone se 11.3
by daril88 on 2018/04/10 02:12
It crashes after the last update, cannot use it any more. I’ll keep the 5 starts cause I know the issue will be solved, for now I just can wait. iPhone SE iOS 11.3
Deceptive
by jreichel on 2019/09/11 00:37
I wanted the decibel meter. Showed in the store that it had it. Bought the pro version to find out that not only didn’t it have the decibel meter, but that it didn’t have anything else than the free version other than to take away the ads. Classic bait and switch for my $4
Wow! Useful tools right in your pocket!
by IrishEyes720 on 2018/05/24 20:40
I used 5 of these tools on the first project! I highly recommend this app to anyone who uses a screwdriver, drill, RV, ladder or hangs art! Unbelievably useful! Only complaint is that it needs an in app manual or video tutorial.
A Great Tool
by Tek_ster on 2018/01/07 22:53
This is a great, intuitive app. I would rate it 5 stars, but for IMO one missing tool, that being a temperature converter for centigrade and Fahrenheit comparisons or conversions. I would forgo the metronome tool for a temperature tool! I love the sounds associated with the tools! Fun!
Doesn’t work on phones with a notch
by hepisbeth on 2018/10/12 18:56
On phones with a notch the ruler doesn’t work correctly. You can get the control stuck behind the notch and be unable to grab it again. Tap frequency weighting in settings for the dB tool and instant crash if it was set to itu468.
Pro version crashes!
by Smk822 on 2018/04/07 14:55
I have iPhone 7+. I had the version with all the annoying gaming ads. - it worked great so I decided to purchase Pro. With Pro version only the flashlight works. If I try to use anything else, it crashes. I’ve deleted and reinstalled several times- no help. Deleted previous version with the ads- no help. Rebooted Iphone-no help. Doesn’t work.
Yay, works again
by The emusifyer on 2018/10/13 01:32
This app was just updated and finally works again but the developer took a looong time to fix. Shouldn’t have to wait months for a paid app to be fixed from a fatal bug that caused it to crash on opening.
Removed the decibel meter
by jo451a on 2019/01/09 15:51
It makes me sad and a bit frustrated that I purchased this app specifically for the decibel meter, now with a new phone I needed to download the app again, and magically that no longer is part of the app. Not sure if I will keep in the app installed or not. I feel like I just tossed money out the door.
Best toolbox on iOS
by Eve Severe on 2019/12/16 22:44
Been using this for years and it is well worth it. Great UI, easy to use, and they actually keep it updated. Ten ⭐️’s for sure!!
Misleading
by VERY FAT PUPPY on 2018/04/28 22:08
The description and pictures talk about a decibel meter, which was the only reason that I purchased the app to begin with, but when I open the application there isn’t one. In the picture, the decibel meter is shown as tool number ten, but in the actual app it has been replaced by a Teslameter. This app is not worth the money, and I would appreciate a refund.
Unusable with iOS 11.3
by Scotia51 on 2018/04/07 23:17
Just purchased Toolbox PRO version 5.2.1, installed on iPad Pro and iPhone 6 both running iOS 11.3. App opens with barometer function. Attempting to select a different function, or “Settings,” causes the app to immediately close. I submitted a trouble report to the developer, and if they respond and correct the problem in a timely manner I’ll upgrade my rating.
Decent interface and useful
by Spahztec on 2017/10/31 17:22
really like the dB and the gauss meters the interface is unique and functional. consider making it tailorable by being able to disable/enable the items the barometer could use some buffing, please consider adding a recorder and/or markers on the gauge
Disappointed
by CrazyBD on 2019/01/13 12:29
Been using this app for years, only to find in this latest update the sound meter tool has been removed. It’s one of the measures I use more frequently. Yet it’s still a screen shot in the previews.
Continual improvements
by Jerry l w. on 2019/07/07 13:23
First, just love the app! I like the continued additions of features! Good job folks! How about adding a feature to measure light intensity? Would like to see the output in lumens. 👏👏👏👏👏👍👍
Great App
by 6643566774433245 on 2020/08/15 16:05
Has so many uses all right at hand. Wish it had volume level (decibels) and WiFi signal strength.
Whatever happened to decibel meter...
by Szymon_Sz on 2018/04/12 05:36
The decibel meter was one of main features I payed for. Why is it suddenly gone now? You can’t just remove things and expect people to be fine with it. It’s like selling a car and then, after a few months, removing the seats.
Everything you need in your iPad toolbox!
by danciswith on 2018/05/17 05:41
I will write my review of the app when I’m able to give a fair and thorough analysis.
Purchased for dB reader— app has none
by Tunnelwasher on 2020/02/25 12:56
I purchased this app specifically for the dB reader only to find there is not one on the app. Literally the first picture on the app description is one of a dB reader. I just scrolled through all of the options on the app — even had my coworker verify he did not see it as an option— and did not find. Garbage!
Unusable
by IphoinetotingLDSman on 2018/04/12 15:46
Come on people stop giving it five stars then saying it’s unusable. App crashes, changed zoom to standard, didn’t work, deleted and reinstalled, didn’t work. Can’t even tell which version I have because app crashes. It opens to first page but crashes when I attempt to open a tool.
Great app, great support
by Jamez Flamez on 2017/09/23 13:30
This is the best app for measuring. Great looking and it’s always being improved. When there is a problem the app designer is right on top of it.

Toolbox PRO: smart meter Tools
Description
The most handy measuring tool kit in the world. Turning your iPhone or iPad into a multi functional measuring device with: metronome, stopwatch, timer, seismometer, ruler, surface level and many more. Currently, there are 13 measuring tools + Flashlight in the tool box: - BAROMETER It gives you a nice and clear local atmospheric pressure, obtained from the barometric sensor in your device - ALTIMETER This tool takes advantage of the built in GPS to give you the precise elevation above the sea level. - COMPASS A pretty and well-made compass for navigation, traveling and direction reference purposes. - TESLAMETER It takes advantage of the built-in magnetometer in your iPhone/iPod touch, allows you to monitor the strength of magnetic field all around. There are a range of real-life applications for this useful item, such as: metal detector, AC magnetic fields, or finding low-magnetic places for sleeping - METRONOME It is the most precise and stable metronome on the app store. Whether you are a musician, a music teacher, a beginner at playing music or even a golfer, this tool provides you a set of powerful features that can satisfy all your needs. - STOPWATCH Whenever you need a precise and professional stopwatch for sport activities like: sprints, jogging, this tool is a must have. Among its features are: intuitive interface, lap and split modes support, or send log results to your email - TIMER There are unlimited applications of using timer in daily life, such as: egg timer, tea timer, cooking, alarm clock, etc. The timer tool satisfies all of those needs by many of its features: up to 5 timers running simultaneously, count down and count up support, intuitive and convenient duration setup using preset and gestures - SEISMOMETER Taking advantage of the built-in accelerometer in your iPhone, this tool detects and visualizes any vibrations and moves of the iPhone. So, why not using this excellent feature to help your iPhone self-protected like a car when combined with an alarm? Or another great application is to test how smooth the car is on a test drive - PLUMB BOB This is an instrument to check if an object is perfectly vertical/plumb and has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians. It suits any types of your needs, such as: hanging objects, carpenter work, brick layer or building construction - SURFACE LEVEL This tool facilitates the measurement of the slope of whatever surface you want to check. Most importantly, its accuracy is ensured at the maximum level by the support to different sensitivities that allow you to detect subtle slopes (floor leveling, furniture arrangement,..) - SPIRIT/BUBBLE LEVEL It is a simple but extremely useful tool in the set to check if an object is balanced. Its applications range from entertained purposes such as checking pool billiard tables in the bar to serious usages like constructions, carpenter, etc - RULER The ruler helps you precisely know the lengths of objects all around you, such as pens, tables, pictures. We built it to become even more than just a normal ruler: longest distance measuring capability, and up to 6 units support - PROTRACTOR Have you ever forgotten your protractor at school or when you urgently look for a protractor to measure any kind of angles in real life?
The dB meter disappeared from my PRO

Too hard to use

It isn’t easy to use, not enough on screen instructions
Great toolbox

Has all the tools I need for work.
No dB meter
by Uncadonl on 2020/12/17 19:43
While a dB meter is shown on the ‘demo’ panel. This app doesn’t actually have one. It does have a seismometer. So, if there’s ever an earthquake, I’ll know how strong it is, but I won’t know how loud. A little case of false advertising?
iPhone 12 Pro Ruler is not accurate
by Zeke Blackwell on 2020/12/06 06:21
iPhone 12 Pro Ruler is not accurate Subject says it all.
Ruler wrong on iPhone 12
by AEB-C on 2020/11/19 18:32
The ruler is not to scale on the iPhone 12 (a physical ruler shows the measurements are off by nearly 20 percent). This should have been tested before release.

Does exactly what it says it will do. Easy to use.
Advertising is exploitative
by Labmanager on 2020/10/11 21:27
The advertising in the “free version” is so intrusive the product ceases to be usable in about an hour, not enough time to test and evaluate product . Its greedy. The product itself is excellent however . I paid the premium and the product performs beautifully but they need to stop pretending there is a “free” version. Its deceptive advertising.
The metronome has no sound.
by tooandpoo on 2020/09/21 04:48
Many utilities seem to work but I really wanted the metronome. There is no sound despite my trying multiple settings.
Doesn’t include all the features of the free app
by bkdavy on 2020/08/30 19:46
Purchased this to access the settings on the dB meter, only to discover the dB meter isn’t included in the pro version. Like the available tools, but feel cheated.
Great App

Decibel Meter Disappeared
by the.iron.mandarin on 2020/06/20 01:09
This was a great app, but now less so. The decibel meter disappeared, even though it’s still advertised in the screenshots.
Rip off

dB Meter Removed
by Tsanoc on 2020/02/07 12:20
I still make use of the app at times but as others mentioned I made great use of the now missing, though /still/ advertised, dB meter.
No more dB meter!
by tomthumbktm on 2020/01/17 04:49
They removed the dB meter and now want a monthly fee for it in a different app. I originally upgraded the app to get the dB meter. I sent them messages and got no response. I would not have purchased had I known they were removing some of the functionality.
I love the pro version of this app!
by morriswj on 2019/12/23 18:27
It takes full advantage of all the great sensors in my iPhone: magnetometer, barometer, motion sensor, etc. The bonus is the Morse code generator that can turn your camera flash into an emergency SOS transmitter! Very cool.
Sells your data, even after paying
by JohnnyTen on 2019/12/22 16:38
Even after paying for the pro version, they sell your data to third party vendors. Sadly, I’m deleting this great app.

Pro version
by headusa on 2019/12/11 01:13
No decibel meter have free version too. Feel like I have been tricked
False Advertising
by ORHobbes on 2019/12/10 04:59
This app used to have a decibel meter in it when I purchased it. That was the main reason I bought it. Then they removed the decibel meter and did not refund me any of the money I paid or offer me a substitute. So they basically stole back the product I paid them for. And to make matters worse, the screenshots in the App Store still show that it has a decibel meter included. So they are still tricking people into paying for something they don’t get. I am reporting them to Apple for false advertising.
iOS 13, Does Not Open. Don’t Buy!

Paid for, Pro version. Haven’t opened it in several months, and it has worked before. Tried to run tonight, wouldn’t open. Deleted and reinstalled—&gt;still doesn’t open. Notice there are no reviews in a year? Looking like an abandoned product. Beware.
Listing picture shows dB meter
by Janman12 on 2019/11/28 17:00
The listing “picture” shows the dB meter yet there isn’t one, one of the featured reviews even mentioned the dB meter. A little deceiving I believe.

This was a perfect app, 5 star. Since upgrading to IOS 13, it crashes on starting. There was no response from the developer. I deleted and redown loaded the app. It still crashes on opening. Same for both versions, pro and regular.
Update - Thumbs Down
by MikeApex on 2019/10/21 01:18
Update- no development in a year and the app crashes everytime on iOS 13. I paid for tool box pro for one app alone the decibel meter and then they moved it out and now they’re charging $8 for the pro version of that up. It has all the same features are used to have in the app that I already paid for. This is a BS software development model to extract more money from paying customers.

Deceptive
by jreichel on 2019/09/11 00:37
I wanted the decibel meter. Showed in the store that it had it. Bought the pro version to find out that not only didn’t it have the decibel meter, but that it didn’t have anything else than the free version other than to take away the ads. Classic bait and switch for my $4
why move decibel ?

why move decibel meter,that the reason i bought this APP
Need my dB meter back.
by AlphaNode on 2019/07/15 19:42
I was using the dB meter on the free version and got annoyed with the incident adds so I brought the pro version and NO dB METER!!! That’s the only reason I upgraded! I noticed they sell a dB meter for $9. What a bait and switch ripoff.
Great tool

Does not include Db tool
by ericmlawson on 2019/06/06 07:34
The only reason I downloaded this tool was for the decibel meter. The basic version did not include it so I thought perhaps it was a full version feature only. Nope! Does not include a Decibel Meter (FFT) at all! Even though it is shown CLEARLY in the photos/videos. If it was a feature in the previous versions, it’s gone now. I never write reviews but had to say something to hopefully prevent others from making the same mistake I made.
DB Crashes
by Avsafety on 2019/06/01 17:40
6/1/19. The DB interface looks great and works for about 5 seconds. Then it disappears and the app has crashed. Tried many times. I am on an iPhone SE with the latest iOS. I had graded it 5 stars for how it appeared. Now a one star after trying to use it. B.
False Advertising and No Response
by Acritacens on 2019/05/07 03:44
I bought this app because the pictures showed a sound meter. No sound meter and no response when I emailed a polite question about it. And no refund either. So I’m stuck with basically a ruler and a flashlight. Weeee.
Where did the Db meter go?
by Otherwise happy with app. on 2019/04/29 02:36
I’ve had this app for years and then one day I need the DB meter and it’s gone! The developer removed it without warning or reason. Otherwise I love this app, but removing functionality from a purchased and is really bad form.
Locks up

No dB meter!
by RAMbu on 2019/04/21 16:53
Picture shows a dB meter. Says it’s option 10. Shows it in 2 pictures, so I get the app. The PRO version, and lo and behold there’s no dB meter in the tool box. Option 10 is a Teslameter. I’ll update review with an updated app.
Sound meter missing
by Jim gricci on 2019/04/17 04:51
I purchased the pro version then they removed the sound meter. What a rip off. Why does the apple store allow such false programming? There was no notification of the dB meter being removed. The sound meter is why I downloaded the application.
Scam!!

Are you enjoying the app?

No decimal meter - False advertising
by MarcusW.527 on 2019/02/16 20:55
The pictures in the App Store app clearly show the decibel meter. It’s not there. Only reason I bought the app. Would like a refund
Does not unlock all features.
by ripjc55 on 2019/02/11 05:49
I mainly used toolbox (free version) for its decibel meter. I purchased the pro version and it doesn’t even have the decibel meter on it. Didn’t think unlocking everything would cause me to lose access to one of the tools. Pathetic.
Things missed
by Mike&Pie on 2019/02/09 23:19
I miss the decimal meter. And yes I know my iPad does not have a flashlight but I do not understand why they just don’t turn the screen bright white. That would be better than nothing, and will work in a pinch. Other than that not a bad app. Thanks

Been using this app for years, only to find in this latest update the sound meter tool has been removed. It’s one of the measures I use more frequently. Yet it’s still a screen shot in the previews.
Removed the decibel meter
by jo451a on 2019/01/09 15:51
It makes me sad and a bit frustrated that I purchased this app specifically for the decibel meter, now with a new phone I needed to download the app again, and magically that no longer is part of the app. Not sure if I will keep in the app installed or not. I feel like I just tossed money out the door.
Deception
by Zagmeyer on 2018/12/20 13:20
I have been using Toolbox for the decibel meter in the free version. Upgraded to pro as its display on iTunes shows picture of decibel meter so I purchased it for supposed advanced capabilities and found that once downloaded it does not include the decibel meter at all. Deception at its finest , would not recommend purchase of anything from this company.
Do not buy
by AbcdDanDanDanDan on 2018/12/20 09:41
I paid to unlock the app and get the pro version for additional features in the dB meter. Well, to my surprise, the DB meter is completely removed from the paid app. This is despite the fact that it is clearly depicted in the picture for the pro version that I bought. Do not buy.
Why did the sound meter get removed?
by sound level on 2018/12/11 01:31
Perhaps someone was silly enough to take the sound meter as calibrated equipment and blew some noise in court. Seriously, that was a great tool. Can we have it back in next release (soon)?
Good app, but...
by AriaLHM on 2018/10/23 01:04
Why did you remove the dB meter with no warning in the update information? The dB meter is why some of us paid for the app. This is very poor form. Also, please allow user determined intermittent beeps/alarms within each timer. This way people have reminders to turn or flip things when cooking, or change exercises. Another update with no change is just poor business. I will definitely NOT recommend your app, and will not be buying any future products until you make this up to your longtime customers.

Rip off
by Halls1120 on 2018/10/13 04:14
I upgraded to the pro version for an unlocked decibel meter. Pro version has removed the decibel meter. I will be demanding a refund and sending a complaint to apple for false advertising.
Yay, works again
by The emusifyer on 2018/10/13 01:32
This app was just updated and finally works again but the developer took a looong time to fix. Shouldn’t have to wait months for a paid app to be fixed from a fatal bug that caused it to crash on opening.
Doesn’t work on phones with a notch
by hepisbeth on 2018/10/12 18:56
On phones with a notch the ruler doesn’t work correctly. You can get the control stuck behind the notch and be unable to grab it again. Tap frequency weighting in settings for the dB tool and instant crash if it was set to itu468.

The main reason for me to purchase this app was for the decibel level meter. Have been rolling this app out on to our manufacturing floor. Much to my surprise, the company removed the decibel meter, making this worthless for the use intended. I have written the company about this, but have received no reply. Why two stars then? The products that they do have within the app are god and work well, just not what I need. Edit: Four emails to them/support. ZERO replies. dB meter still shows in their “store”. One star due to their lack of customer support.

Jack of all trades, master of none.
by teger33 on 2018/07/09 00:18
Has a lot of functions, but I’m not sure it will become my “go-to” app. It does many things your iPhone does already, so you’re likely to ignore the timers (because Siri is so convenient for that) or the flashlight (because we’re accustomed to sliding up for that). Additionally, those functions which require sounds to be generated will only do so if your phone is not in silent mode (where native iOS alarms will conveniently override this). Some instruments are easy to accidentally calibrate without realizing. It might be nicer to have calibration functions more out of the way, just as the resetting to defaults is hidden in the instrument’s settings menu. Of all the great things about the metronome (ability to store a list of tempos, time signatures, audible subdivisions, Italian labels on the dial), it is a travesty that you can’t dial in a tempo by ear without a cacophonous mess (The metronome audibly resets to beat one continuously as the dial is moved while playing). I don’t know of any musicians who wouldn’t require the ability to adjust a metronome while it is playing. Lastly, the instruments which allow measurements to be graphed would be more useful if labels for units of measurement were included on the graph (though I have not yet checked to see if exported data files include labels).

I may not have figured the app out - but it seems that the seismic app doesn’t run ‘in background’ or when the screen is locked, for example, at night. I was hoping to record information over night but it stopped recording soon after I set it down. Am I doing something wrong?
Pretty sleazy tactic
by otterman on 2018/06/13 03:15
As others have pointed out, the decibel meter has been removed from the pro version. Looking at the version history, there was NO mention of its removal in the release notes. The last reference was to CHANGES to the decibel meter, indicating it was still part of the app. I guess now it’s turned up again as a separate paid-for app. Do developers really think people will invest MORE money in their apps after a move like that? Sleazy SkyPaw!
Feel tricked into buying the pro version
by top snp on 2018/06/12 09:20

It turns out that the decibel meter wasn’t even available in a provision. how can the decibel meter be in the free version and not be in the provision . On top of that the decibel meter has features that says needs to be unlocked buy buying pro to use????? Other than that its a 5 star app, but -2stars for tricking me.

I downloaded version 5.2.3 onto my iPhone 7s June 2018 and there are only 13 tools- it’s missing the Decibel tool, which was the only one I really wanted. I would have paid the $3.99 just for that one. I’ll follow up this review if the developers make good on the promise of this app.
Great product now won’t work...
by kleidascopeplanet on 2018/04/24 02:11
This is a great product. However, a week ago it suddenly stopped launching on my iPhone 7 Plus. Still works fine on my iPad. So I went ahead and did most recent iOS update, and still the same. Check App Store for update, none. What’s going on here? Hence a 3 star rating this round. UPDATE: So I deleted the app from my iPhone and then reloaded it. Now it launches but when I go into settings or attempt to change to another tool the app crashes, hence downgrading to a 1 star rating, for their paid for PRO version no less! UPDATE TO UPDATE: App now works. However, the barometer still doesn’t work here in Utah. Others do. I use in inHG setting. That is why it only gets 4 stars. Hopefully the barometer will get fixed and working.

I’ve had the regular version for a year more now everything I’ve had works great just upgraded to the pro version. I am a professional audio engineers of the decibel meter has been coming in handy for a while, the Metronome works great. I haven’t had much need for the seismograph… But I’ve got to say the altimeter and the compass it made for some interesting conversations while I’m on the road… I now also understand what I barometer is and how it functions. And believe it or not the plumbob and leveling portion of this have helped a few times making sure staging was level. Two thumbs up for sure… And if I had a third time and point at skyward! JTJ

It instantly crashes on both iOS 11.0 and 11.0.1. I have an iPhone 7 Plus. I’ve tried it many times with no luck. All my other apps work perfectly. Your response worked. Thank you. I’ve revised my rating to five stars. Thank you for your response and for working hard to once again make this an excellent app.
Fantastic but broken
by birdcatcher9 on 2018/04/09 20:49
It has been really cool and interesting to have this app for the past few weeks. I have the Pro version. Starting a couple of nights ago, however, it crashes on opening! I can&#39;t use it now!! I have tried changing my iPhone 7-plus back to standard zoom (as was recommended with a previous update), but no luck.
Love it!
by MikeMac on 2018/03/11 19:30
I really love this app. It has all the tools I have seen, except for one, and it’s an iPhone 5-only tool. I am anxious to see what, if any, tools are added in the future. I am constantly amazed at what can be done via a smartphone. Not only are the tools functional and highly accurate, but the visual and audio elements of this app are outstanding. I love the industrial look, sound, and feel.

Opened the new update on an app I paid money for only to find the Decibel tool I use most has been removed. The main reason I purchased this app was for the decibel tool. Now you want me to spend 4.99 to get an app I already paid for. You said if I had toolbox pro with decibel in it it would not be removed. YOU REMOVED IT. I’m not happy about this.
Works great! But I could really use a guidebook to help explain the readings.
by -Kyptastic- on 2018/03/09 17:47
Works great! But I could really use a guidebook to help explain the readings I am getting from the teslameter. With alert spikes and the red screen are a little confusing I was reading up on the basics of a Tesla/gauss meter and I’m still a little unsure it I’m reading electrical activity(power lines in the wall) or magnetic metal.

Very well done
by Wktx on 2018/04/11 23:21
This is really well done. It’s like several apps all rolled into one, and each one is really good. I am always surprised at what it includes, and I always end up fooling around with the other tool things that I didn’t know I wanted, but turns out are super interesting. Really worthwhile app, and I don’t say that often.
Advertising is exploitative
by Labmanager on 2020/10/11 21:27
The advertising in the “free version” is so intrusive the product ceases to be usable in about an hour, not enough time to test and evaluate product . Its greedy. The product itself is excellent however . I paid the premium and the product performs beautifully but they need to stop pretending there is a “free” version. Its deceptive advertising.
Does everything you would expect and more.
by Harley Nut on 2017/12/04 18:59
Precision and accuracy, while not the same, are very much present in this app. I have yet to find a problem with this app and have found it very helpful whenever I have used it, which is often.
Just be nice if
by Pisczum on 2020/03/13 18:39
It would be nice if there was an information sheet explaining the different tools. 1 is totally new and 1 I’ve heard of just never dealt with so I have to research them and learn . A simple page about each tool explaining what’s its used for what it detects and how to understand the results . But I like the app well laid out easy to use works great
Does not include Db tool
by ericmlawson on 2019/06/06 07:34
The only reason I downloaded this tool was for the decibel meter. The basic version did not include it so I thought perhaps it was a full version feature only. Nope! Does not include a Decibel Meter (FFT) at all! Even though it is shown CLEARLY in the photos/videos. If it was a feature in the previous versions, it’s gone now. I never write reviews but had to say something to hopefully prevent others from making the same mistake I made.
Instant Crash
by 2daz4u on 2018/04/07 20:47
This app used to be a valuable tool. Now it opens, but as soon as I try to select anything; another tool, settings, etc. the app crashes and immediately closes on my iPhone 7 Plus running the most recent iOS. Big disappointment.
Keep crash after upgrade
by kschois on 2018/04/12 00:44
Version 5.2.1 keep crashes every time I turn tool rotary to others or select Setting icon right lower corner. I am using iPhone 8 plus and iOS 11.3. Please fix it ASAP. ========= Update 5.2.2 fixed the crash issue. Thank you for quick fix.
Not so good on iPhone 8plus
by Durfmeister on 2017/09/24 05:27
This app worked wonderfully on my old iPhone 5s, but I just got a new iPhone 8plus today and all it does is crash on the new 11 program. OK- a day later and they must have updated the app because it now works wonderfully again!
Last update causing app to crash...
by Mylifeisnotmyjob on 2018/04/09 20:14
When app starts it closes down but still showing in background and have downloaded and reinstalled with no improvement... App has run 100% before update... 5 STAR APP hell of a ToolBox...
Things missed
by Mike&Pie on 2019/02/09 23:19
I miss the decimal meter. And yes I know my iPad does not have a flashlight but I do not understand why they just don’t turn the screen bright white. That would be better than nothing, and will work in a pinch. Other than that not a bad app. Thanks
Pretty sleazy tactic
by otterman on 2018/06/13 03:15
As others have pointed out, the decibel meter has been removed from the pro version. Looking at the version history, there was NO mention of its removal in the release notes. The last reference was to CHANGES to the decibel meter, indicating it was still part of the app. I guess now it’s turned up again as a separate paid-for app. Do developers really think people will invest MORE money in their apps after a move like that? Sleazy SkyPaw!
Greatest tool for iPhone EVER!!
by DDATL13 on 2018/04/09 18:23
Ok now that I’ve told Y’all that this is the greatest app ever created for the iPhone. There is one piece of bad news. Not Compatible with iOS 11.3. 5 stars but waiting patiently on the update. Crashes every time I launch and select a tool. PLEASE UPDADE!!!!!!!!
Crashes
by M1ndh4x3r on 2017/08/03 07:05
Randomly crashes on opening of certain tools on iPad Air 2 running 10.3.3. Please fix ASAP. Edit: crash issue seems to have been fixed by the latest update. This developer cares, back to five stars.
Update - Thumbs Down
by MikeApex on 2019/10/21 01:18
Update- no development in a year and the app crashes everytime on iOS 13. I paid for tool box pro for one app alone the decibel meter and then they moved it out and now they’re charging $8 for the pro version of that up. It has all the same features are used to have in the app that I already paid for. This is a BS software development model to extract more money from paying customers.
Crashes
by BruceKellogg on 2017/09/30 18:56
In iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 11, this app crashes on startup. Developer really cares, the new release completely fixed the previous crash issue. Revised rating to five stars.
New. Pro version will not run on my 8s or iPad
by Bh9025 on 2018/10/20 12:14
Original toolbox worked fine, new upgrade wont even open, I have deleted and downloaded new copy and it still will not open. Sad.
Crashes after last update. iPhone se 11.3
by daril88 on 2018/04/10 02:12
It crashes after the last update, cannot use it any more. I’ll keep the 5 starts cause I know the issue will be solved, for now I just can wait. iPhone SE iOS 11.3
Deceptive
by jreichel on 2019/09/11 00:37
I wanted the decibel meter. Showed in the store that it had it. Bought the pro version to find out that not only didn’t it have the decibel meter, but that it didn’t have anything else than the free version other than to take away the ads. Classic bait and switch for my $4
Wow! Useful tools right in your pocket!
by IrishEyes720 on 2018/05/24 20:40
I used 5 of these tools on the first project! I highly recommend this app to anyone who uses a screwdriver, drill, RV, ladder or hangs art! Unbelievably useful! Only complaint is that it needs an in app manual or video tutorial.
A Great Tool
by Tek_ster on 2018/01/07 22:53
This is a great, intuitive app. I would rate it 5 stars, but for IMO one missing tool, that being a temperature converter for centigrade and Fahrenheit comparisons or conversions. I would forgo the metronome tool for a temperature tool! I love the sounds associated with the tools! Fun!
Doesn’t work on phones with a notch
by hepisbeth on 2018/10/12 18:56
On phones with a notch the ruler doesn’t work correctly. You can get the control stuck behind the notch and be unable to grab it again. Tap frequency weighting in settings for the dB tool and instant crash if it was set to itu468.
Pro version crashes!
by Smk822 on 2018/04/07 14:55
I have iPhone 7+. I had the version with all the annoying gaming ads. - it worked great so I decided to purchase Pro. With Pro version only the flashlight works. If I try to use anything else, it crashes. I’ve deleted and reinstalled several times- no help. Deleted previous version with the ads- no help. Rebooted Iphone-no help. Doesn’t work.
Yay, works again
by The emusifyer on 2018/10/13 01:32
This app was just updated and finally works again but the developer took a looong time to fix. Shouldn’t have to wait months for a paid app to be fixed from a fatal bug that caused it to crash on opening.
Removed the decibel meter
by jo451a on 2019/01/09 15:51
It makes me sad and a bit frustrated that I purchased this app specifically for the decibel meter, now with a new phone I needed to download the app again, and magically that no longer is part of the app. Not sure if I will keep in the app installed or not. I feel like I just tossed money out the door.
Best toolbox on iOS
by Eve Severe on 2019/12/16 22:44
Been using this for years and it is well worth it. Great UI, easy to use, and they actually keep it updated. Ten ⭐️’s for sure!!
Misleading
by VERY FAT PUPPY on 2018/04/28 22:08
The description and pictures talk about a decibel meter, which was the only reason that I purchased the app to begin with, but when I open the application there isn’t one. In the picture, the decibel meter is shown as tool number ten, but in the actual app it has been replaced by a Teslameter. This app is not worth the money, and I would appreciate a refund.
Unusable with iOS 11.3
by Scotia51 on 2018/04/07 23:17
Just purchased Toolbox PRO version 5.2.1, installed on iPad Pro and iPhone 6 both running iOS 11.3. App opens with barometer function. Attempting to select a different function, or “Settings,” causes the app to immediately close. I submitted a trouble report to the developer, and if they respond and correct the problem in a timely manner I’ll upgrade my rating.
Decent interface and useful
by Spahztec on 2017/10/31 17:22
really like the dB and the gauss meters the interface is unique and functional. consider making it tailorable by being able to disable/enable the items the barometer could use some buffing, please consider adding a recorder and/or markers on the gauge
Disappointed
by CrazyBD on 2019/01/13 12:29
Been using this app for years, only to find in this latest update the sound meter tool has been removed. It’s one of the measures I use more frequently. Yet it’s still a screen shot in the previews.
Continual improvements
by Jerry l w. on 2019/07/07 13:23
First, just love the app! I like the continued additions of features! Good job folks! How about adding a feature to measure light intensity? Would like to see the output in lumens. 👏👏👏👏👏👍👍
Great App
by 6643566774433245 on 2020/08/15 16:05
Has so many uses all right at hand. Wish it had volume level (decibels) and WiFi signal strength.
Whatever happened to decibel meter...
by Szymon_Sz on 2018/04/12 05:36
The decibel meter was one of main features I payed for. Why is it suddenly gone now? You can’t just remove things and expect people to be fine with it. It’s like selling a car and then, after a few months, removing the seats.
Everything you need in your iPad toolbox!
by danciswith on 2018/05/17 05:41
I will write my review of the app when I’m able to give a fair and thorough analysis.
Purchased for dB reader— app has none
by Tunnelwasher on 2020/02/25 12:56
I purchased this app specifically for the dB reader only to find there is not one on the app. Literally the first picture on the app description is one of a dB reader. I just scrolled through all of the options on the app — even had my coworker verify he did not see it as an option— and did not find. Garbage!
Unusable
by IphoinetotingLDSman on 2018/04/12 15:46
Come on people stop giving it five stars then saying it’s unusable. App crashes, changed zoom to standard, didn’t work, deleted and reinstalled, didn’t work. Can’t even tell which version I have because app crashes. It opens to first page but crashes when I attempt to open a tool.
Great app, great support
by Jamez Flamez on 2017/09/23 13:30
This is the best app for measuring. Great looking and it’s always being improved. When there is a problem the app designer is right on top of it.
