Need a Bubble Level? Just Google It

Bubble Level Searching “Bubble Level” on Your Phone Brings Up an Interactive Bubble Level

If I would have known about this trick in Google Search, I might saved a bit of time. Since Google Search is installed on almost all Android devices, Google thought it would be a good idea to incorporate a bubble level card into the app which shows up if you search "bubble level" or "spirit level".

While it's true that there are plenty of applications in the Google Play Store that do the same thing (or even better), but if you don't feel comfortable giving some no-name developer all those insane app permissions, Google's very own method might do the trick. Or sometimes it can be used by landscape photographers to ensure that their cameras are level even if the tripod is placed on an uneven surface. It can also come in handy if you want to hang paintings or photos on the wall and you want to make sure that it isn't crooked. Maybe not, but if you wanted one in a pinch or if you don't want to go out and buy one specifically, we reckon this should be able to get the job done.
