Abstract
This paper presents Tiltification, a multi modal spirit level application for smartphones. The non-profit app was produced by students in the master project "Sonification Apps" in winter term 2020/21 at the University of Bremen to learn how to conceptualize, implement, market and test smartphone apps. In the app, psychoacoustic sonification is used to give feedback on the device's rotation angles in two plane dimensions, allowing users to level furniture or take perfectly horizontal photos. Tiltification supplements the market of spirit level apps with detailed auditory information presentation. This provides for additional benefit in comparison to a physical spirit level and for more accessibility for visually and cognitively impaired people. We argue that the distribution of sonification apps through mainstream channels is a contribution to establish sonification in the market and make it better known to users outside the scientific domain.
