Thanks to all betatesters for their help and I apologize for all bugs and inconveniences.



FAQ:

Q: When I start the app I got a error: "mToolbox.exe TypeLoadException". What can I do?
A: Try a softreset, it's known problem when your RAM is quite full.


mToolbox is a multifunctional sensor app. It's like a Swiss knife but without all the hardware functions. mToolbox is using the built-in sensors of your device. So in this version the light sensor and the G-sensor are supported. Maybe I add the support for the stylus sensor in a further release.

You'll have:
  • water level
  • light sensor
  • ruler
  • angle meter and
  • shock sensor


It's very important that you report me every error (maybe with screenshot). That's the only way to make the app bug-free. Report here or send me an email to: error ( a ) dev.etechniker.com


Overview - Features, ToDo and System requirements

Changelog

Screenshots

Download




Suggestion are welcome on every time.



If you like this app, I would be very happy if you donate me a coffee or two.




If you want you can "follow me" and the progress on twitter.

I have an Omnia (WQVGA). G-sensor apps work by having the htc gsensor api dlls.

How about adding a g-sensor pedometer function?

Also what happened to mFlash? It was a usefull tool (too bad the standby/hibernate function and the power button of the phone would turn off the flash led... it needed a button to turn of screen). I think it would be a nice addition to the toolbox.

Yes you're welcome to try the beta version. Look at the first post where I added the download link to the beta vesion.

What exactly do you mean with pedometer? Do you mean a step counter?

Sorry that I can't continue with mFlash but without a device with flashlight it's not possible.

The buttons are quite large for the VGA device right now and some of the buttons have a hard time actually working. Meaning it takes a while for me to actually get into the tool I want.

I know I was supposed to e-mail you, but thought this might be easier.
I am working on the screenshots.

Same Problem here (diamond VGA). Buttons must be pressed hard and often before i get any reaction. Also text, for example in thre ruler app, is cut off on the right side, or overlapping. Also the program is running VERY slow (don't know if that's because of my rom) Exit Button does not work for me, i think (killed the program by taskmanager after waiting 30 seconds).
I'd love to help you beta testing, but at the moment the app is not really usable on my device.
