eBay Image Search
Forgetting the name of something is frustrating, and when it happens, the eBay app is there to help. When you open up the app, you can utilize the camera icon at the end of the search box to do an image search. This brings up your smartphone camera, which takes a picture of the object (maybe you’re trying to remember the name of the style of a mid-century modern chair you found at a thrift store and you also want to see if it’s a good deal). The app searches for the object you snapped, and shows you eBay auction listings that match it. Love your smartphone? Then you might want to make it its own personalized stand!
Check That a Surface is Level
The Compass app that comes on your iPhone may not be the first thing you go to, but if you’re hanging pictures or installing plumbing pipes, it’s a great trick to have up your sleeve. When you launch the Compass, simply swipe left, and you’ll find a leveler that you can use for hanging artwork or shelves. It works by using your phone’s built-in gyroscope sensor to see if something is perfectly level, even showing you a red margin to reveal just how much the two angles vary.
