Clinometer Update for Android

Our Android version gets a complete reworked version as an update. We incorporated a new modern action bar navigation, including tooltips for quick access to switch unit mode, color and calibration. We support tablets now with high resolution graphics and improved orientation support. The icon is not final yet. The color of the bubble level just indicates different versions (red for the paid version on Android for example).

New features for Android at a glance:

✔ High resolution graphics
✔ Redesigned (modern) app navigation
✔ New theme with slim frame (previous still selectable)
✔ New Unit Mode 1V:H common in engineering
✔ Rooftop Mode now labelled :12

There are two new features incorporated as in app purchases, namely clinometer camera mode and the relative angle measurement. Following videos show the features in action

New look

After having a look into different CMS systems our homepage kernel went from a self developed Java/J2EE web application to a simple wordpress installation. We added a new style based on the current twenty-twelve theme. While implementing we learnt about modernizr (www.modernizr.com) to programmatically check for browser support of specific CSS styles / HTML features. This homepage applies it to determine the browser support of the border-image css style.

Another nice online tool is browsershots.org. It allows to check how your homepage renders on different browsers. Beware you have a limited amount of shots per days there, so i would recommend starting with the browsers of interest first.
