I just use the “compass” app on my phone. It has a second screen that acts as a digital bubble level. You can even “zero” it to any arbitrary starting point.

Very cool Dave! I'm only 30 so needless to say I never got to use one of those in school.

Glen, I wonder how accurate that would be? I have however used the phone angle finder when I needed to find the pitch of my roof.

Default Apple app

The trouble I have with the apple app is that it is not very accurate. Only within 1 degree wont cut it fo me.
But if I use it for comparison angles by double tapping it seems much more accurate.
