Do you know the famous french game "petanque" or "bocce" (mainly played in south of France). Well if you play it you will use BoulOmetre to know which ball is closer to the "cochonnet".

Click "use", then use the sizable circle to know which ball is closer, it's as easy as that.

We stumbled across a petanque-game for the andoid-system. From the produces description:"Petanque in St Tropez is a 3D bowls game, as played on the mediterannean coast." We do not have an android-phone to test it on, perhaps one of you can help us out?
