    Angle apps

    I have seen in the past some of you using an app to check the angle of your rear facing car seats. Just wondering which ones you use? I finally have joined the ranks of the smart phone users lol. I found one app, but it is telling me the angle backwards or something I am not sure how to read it. So curious which ones you all use?

    I have an Android phone and I downloaded "Bubble" for free. I like it

    Alternately, you can just face your phone the other way (pointing toward the driver door vs. passenger) and it shouldn't read negative.

    I use Bubble and Clinometer. There are 2 Bubble apps. Both work well for me. I like Clinometer best.
