[prMac.com] Bialystok, Poland - A smartphone or tablet can be even more useful with an innovative new app that gives users accurate weight measurements. Diamond Scale from Leviteo transforms a mobile device into a compact and accurate scale. From the developer of Fabulous Foxes and Wordfish, Diamond Scale is now available worldwide through the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
"Diamond Scale is the first and only working scale for iOS and Android devices," said Thomas Poniatowicz, the strategy manager for Leviteo. "The app provides incredible accuracy when the simple instructions are followed. Having Diamond Scale on your phone is like having a digital scale in your pocket wherever you go."
Perfect for jewelry, coins, food and other small objects, Diamond Scale makes accurately weighing items on the go quick and easy. Mobile phones can weigh items between 1 and 5 grams, and tablets between 1 and 10 grams. The app works best when the mobile device is equipped with a gyroscope and the work surface is sturdy, such as a floor, table or desk.
In preparation for operating Diamond Scale, the user will need an inflated zipper-seal bag or unopened bag of potato chips as well as a coin. Common coins such as the 0.20 EUR, 0.05 USD, 100 JPY, 0.2 GBP or 1 PLN work well.
Diamond Scale ingeniously weighs an object through a simple process. After placing the inflated bag on a steady surface, the user places the mobile device on the inflated bag, which acts a pillow to cradle and cushion it. The user taps the "press to calibrate" bar and waits a few seconds for the "calibration, please wait" message to disappear.
While taking care not to touch the inflated bag or the phone, the user gently places a coin on the lower portion of the phone. Once the app is calibrated again, the user carefully places the object to be weighed on top of the coin. Within seconds the accurate weight of the small object appears on the easy-to-read display.
Diamond Scale provides results in either grams or ounces. When used properly, the app provides accuracy to the nearest tenth of a measure.
"Sometimes it just isn't practical to carry a clunky digital scale as you visit clients looking to sell jewels, hunt for treasure at flea markets or weigh items for class projects and homework," said Poniatowicz. "Hobbyists, professionals, business owners, coin enthusiasts and students alike will appreciate how easy it is to use Diamond Scale and its accuracy."
