Our mobile phones are used for so many things these days, from computer to camera, to gaming system, and now, digital scale! But how in the world do you do that?

Here’s how it works:
When properly calibrated, you can use your phone’s built in tilt sensors to calculate weight of objects. If calibrated properly and used correctly the app has been shown to be almost as accurate as a real digital scales. To calibrate, balance your phone on something curved or soft and then place objects to weigh on bottom of phone.
Press the calibrate button and lay the phone on a level surface. Follow the instructions to calibrate.
It is also possible to weigh larger objects. By using the phone’s camera, you can weigh larger objects with some accuracy. This requires a little DIY using common household objects, and again requires calibration.
Press the calibrate button and setup your balance apparatus. Follow the instructions to calibrate.
