What's new in this version (1.55):
New sounds based on Austrian ratchets, change via menu!
Now compatible with non-autofocus cameras (e.g. Huawei Ideos) - welcome!
If the ratchet moves in the wrong direction, use menu "swap sensor axes" and send us a short email with phone model and manufacturer! Works with Android tablets, 3.1+ (e.g. Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet) and 4.0+ (e.g. Acer Transformer TF101)
Ratcheting is a well-known tradition since 1482. It creates lots of noise by turning a wooden ratchet – the faster, the better! 3D model and sound were captured from an original wooden easter ratchet originally built by my uncle. Our digital ratchet behaves just as a real one, but it‘s easier to take with you everywhere you go.
Now with transparency mode (background is a camera preview). Tap screen once for autofocus. Please send us a short email message if it does not work correctly for you.
DISCLAIMER: We cannot be held responsible for flying mobile phones. If you fear for your mobile phone, use the Touch-Mode to control the ratchet via Touchscreen.
KNOWN BUGS: Some Android 2.1 phones have the camera preview rotated 90°. We can send you a version in landscape mode by email (i.e. menu will be rotated 90°, everything else will be all right). If you have Android 2.2+ camera preview can be rotated via menu entry. Unfortunately Android 2.1 does not yet have this API function.
