There are lots of measurement and "all in one" apps for the iPhone and iPad. Clearly, the concept makes a lot of sense for a lot of people. AppBox Pro, for instance, includes tons of different useful activities for the iPhone/iPad user. Multi Measures HD, by SkyPaw, includes a bunch of useful measurement tools for the iPad user in a beautifully designed package.

[/caption]So What's Included?
Multi Measures HD includes six different measurement tools, including a ruler, protractor, seismometer, plumb bob, spirit level, and surface level. Each tool is beautifully designed and, from what I can tell, well calibrated. I wonder, however, whether tools like the seismometer are truly necessary for the common user. Regardless, it's well implemented and fun to play around with. The ruler includes some useful tools as well, like instructions for measuring large objects and the option to use various different units. The sensitivity of several of the tools can be tweaked as well.

A Bargain at 99 Cents
For an inexpensive application, Multi Measures HD is beautifully designed. It seems almost as if it were designed by Tapbots, the creator of popular applications like Convertbot. The selection screen is very reminiscent of ConvertBot's, and that's a compliment considering how meticulous Tapbots is in creating beautiful apps. Multi Measures HD is, obviously, a simple application. Yet at 99 cents, it's a bargain. If you're in the market for a simple and useful measurement toolkit, look no further than Multi Measures HD.
