How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Features

  • Flashlight
  • Unit converter
  • Compass
  • Calculator
  • Magnifying glass

Product Description

This app contains a set of tiny tools: a flashlight, a unit converter, a timer, a stop watch, a compass a bubble level, a calculator, a magnifying glass (Android 2.2+ required), a mirror (Android 2.3+ and front camera required) and a ruler.
Each tool does what it is supposed to do. There's no space for special effects like 3d compass, talking level, psychedelic flashlight etc: the goal is to have a lightweight, fast and easy to use set of tools, one "tap" away from your home screen.
This app is half the size of a common "standalone tool" like a compass, a flashlight or a magnifying glass. This way you'll save a lot of disk space. You'll save network consumption too, not only for the first download but for every update too.
It doesn't require network access, the permission to write on your flash memory or the permission to read your contacts.
Suggestions, like new features to implement, new tools etc. are welcome. If you want to contribute a translation, please let us know by sending us an email ;)
If you find a bug, please contact us using the "Report a bug" main menu function.
Note: if you write a comment on the Android Market without sending us an email, it's difficult for us to fix the problem, because usually we need some information (such as smartphone type and version, a way to replicate the problem, etc.)

Note:
- Depending on the hardware capabilities of your smartphone, some tools may not be present
- The permission to use the camera is required in order to turn on the camera flash LED. Some smartphones (for instance the Google Nexus S) don't light the flash LED if the camera is not running. If you check the most popular flashlight apps, you'll find out that they all require this permission. Swiss Army Knife doesn't shot any photos, doesn't save multimedia info onto the flash card and doesn't send anything on the internet: it doesn't require the network permission at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best App Ever April 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
The compass does not work, but I have never had a compass app that does. Everything else works perfectly. I have this app on my phone, and on my kindle, and would recommend it to anyone.

I got this app for the compass, it doesn't work, so will delete it. Does any compass app work with kindle fire, I need it for the night sky app?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful August 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
Swiss Army Knife is one of the most useful applications I have. I have it on my mobile phone and was exited to find it available for my Kindle Fire HD. I have used the flashlight when the power went out, the stop watch to time tasks for work, the level helps setting up the camper, the mirror when I have something in my eye, and on, and on. Absolutely useful tool. And, I like in all in one place rather than having separate apps for each item.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good app to have September 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
Good app to have, with lots of useful things that I don't need too often, but it's nice to know they are there on my tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 4) if I need them.

The flashlight, unit converter, timer, stopwatch, bubble level, calculator and ruler work just fine. I wasn't sure at first what the point of the mirror was, as I could do the same using my tablet's front camera, but then I realized it had options to adjust the light level of the display and/or put a flashlight around the display, which might be useful in the dark.

The magnifying glass doesn't work that great, things are rather fuzzy when magnified, but that's probably because my Tab doesn't have the best lens in its camera.

The compass did not install with the app. Maybe it's because I have a tablet, not a smart phone. Or maybe it can't use the setting I chose on my tablet regarding location (I did not go for the high accuracy setting).
