[prMac.com] Split, Croatia - HolosOne today announced the immediate availability of Vintage Gadget, an exciting new utility app for iPhone offering eight tools for the price of one. Vintage Gadget, the Swiss Army Knife of utility apps, combines useful tools with classic, steampunk-inspired design.
With eight unique utilities and a steampunk-inspired mechanical design, Vintage Gadget offers the features of multiple tools in one beautifully designed interface, complete with moving parts and intuitive controls. Users can quickly select a tool by rotating Vintage Gadget's control wheel and watch in amazement as their chosen utility slides into view, amid clouds of steam and whirring cogs, with clockwork precision.
Following the success of HolosOne's Vintage Times app, Vintage Gadget includes unique interfaces for each tool, including a ruler, protractor, timer, stopwatch, flashlight, compass, counter, and spirit level.
"Vintage Gadget is not only the most beautiful app we've ever created, it's also the most useful." Said Jerko Latkovi, Co-Founder and CEO of HolosOne. "With eight amazing tools, users will find a use for Vintage Gadget every day."
Each of Vintage Gadget's eight tools provide accurate numerical and visual results by taking advantage of the iPhone's built-in gyroscope and compass, as well as the Retina Display. This level of quality and reliability make it the ideal app for DIY enthusiasts who want maximum functionality without having to search their iPhone for multiple apps.
Whether a user is putting up a shelf, boiling an egg, hanging a picture, counting or trying to find their way, Vintage Gadget offers the tools they need in an interface that is as beautiful as it is functional. Complete with audio and visual feedback for each action performed, users can quickly calculate, measure, locate, and illuminate in style.
Why buy eight individual tools when you can get them all in one beautifully designed app?
