I use a wixey angle gauge to set my saddle angles to dboa agreement.
Laser level is also pretty good for this sort of stuff as it allow you get the axles level.

Once you know the axles are level, you can use a spirit level app on your smartphone - I typically grab a book and put it across the saddle so you capture the overall saddle angle (rules out any differences in placement of the phone on the saddle).
