NEW BRITAIN, Conn., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanley® announced today the
introduction of its redesigned level app, now for iPad® and new iPhone®
models. This free app is available online at the Apple App Store and brings
users the accuracy and reliability they are accustomed to with traditional
Stanley® levels in virtual form. "With over five million iPhone 5s sold in its
first weekend alone, we are excited to offer our customers a revamped app
compatible with features like Retina™ display," said Todd Langston, Director
of Brand Marketing. Two virtual levels are included in the app which emulate
existing Stanley® levels; choose from our classic cherry wood or popular
yellow FatMax.


The Stanley® level app is ideal for simple jobs like hanging pictures,
mounting shelves and more when you don't have a conventional level available.
"Convenient and portable, it's a must have app for everyone from the
professional contractor to the novice DIY-er," says Langston. This app
combines more than a century's worth of hand tool manufacturing experience
with today's latest digital technology. It harnesses the technology of an
accelerometer and a digital gyroscope located in select iPhone and iPad
models, to generate an understanding of where the device is in space. After an
initial calibration, the bubble will read an angle up to 90 degrees and will
indicate 0 degrees when you are level, with crisp, easy to read numbers.

The Stanley® Level App is available for free at the Apple App Store and is
compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd
generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and
iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
