All in 1 Toolbox - App Spotlight

Looking for a swiss army styled app for your Windows Phone? No, not one that comes with tweezers and a nail file but one that has a healthy collection of tools? If so, you need to check out All in 1 Toolbox.

All in 1 has nine tools in the box that include:

  • Flashlight: 4 different themes
  • Unit Converter: length, area, volume, weight, temperature, angle and time
  • Secure Notes: protects your notes with a password and encryption. Organizes your notes to categories.
  • Date Calculator: adds days, time and subtracts dates
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator: calculates BMI and shows BMI category
  • Tip Calculator: calculates the tip and splits the check
  • Counter: +/- buttons for counting, with save and load
  • Password Generator: generates a customizable password and saves it to the secure notes
  • Product Comparison: compares 2 products with price, quantity and discount.

The tools are launched from a "lazy susan" styled menu and are an interesting assortment of applications. I can see some coming in handy on a daily basis, while others may only be used once in a while.

The All in 1 Toolbox is running $1.99 and there is a free trial version available to let you give a whirl before buying. You can find All in 1 Toolbox here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace. 

Oh... there is a free, ad-supported version of All in 1 Toolbox.  Toolbox Free has the same nine tools and simply adds an ad banner into the mix.  You can find Toolbox Free here at the Marketplace.

Does this have a real flashlight using the camera flash or is it another one of those retarded white screen "flashlights"?

futurix says:

Real flashlight is impossible in WP7 as there is no API available to third-party developers (no idea if that was added in Mango, but I doubt it).

PhilR8 says:

HTC has a flashlight app that you can download if you have an HTC device - it uses the camera flash LED and not the screen. I use it all the time.

I have a sideloaded app that works, but makes an annoying and loud sound whn you turn n the flashlight, it takes a while to start and stop and is quite ugly. Otherwise, it's quite functional and these are minor annoyances rather than full on complaints.
