Cool Tools is a toolbox of tool or utility type apps for your Windows Phone.  Need a stopwatch?  There's a tool for that.  How about a need to covert inches to millimeters?  Need a countdown timer for the kitchen?  Cool Tools is a rather simple app that delivers seven useful tools that most will find a use for.

The tools include:

  • Stopwatch with lap time
  • Countdown timer
  • Flashlight with Emergency Strobe setting
  • Ruler
  • Accelerometer with x, y, and z axis
  • Soundcheck with THX clips (moo cows!)
  • Converter

The converter will convert length, liquids, weight, speed, temperature measurements from metric to english (and back/forth). It will also convert calendar dates to age.

Cool Tools is laid out rather nicely and in a straight forward fashion. Cool Tools is a free app and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.  Keep in mind that Cool Tools is a Windows Phone 7.5 app so you'll need to update your phone to Mango before you can use the app.
