    im putting it flag on my computer desk

    When i play A free level its 16 degrees 6 cm

    when i play papi river it doesnt go straight down it goes to the right

    when i play labyrinth it goes right. doesnt stay in the same place.

    When i play i ball lite it doesnt go straight down the road it goes right
    Is this normal and im just exaggerating or do i have a problem?

    Did you buy it new or used? In labryinth are you sure you didn't calibrate it to an unlevel surface.

    Get the clinometer app and that should show you whether or not you have it calibrated or not.

    Also it is important that all major gravity sources near you excluding the Earth are turned off to insure accuracy.
