Measuring the distance and angle between two points for example.
Can be used to define a »horizon« and have the image rotated to make that horizontal (via the »Straighten«-button in the Options Bar).

You may want to consult the Help (also downloadable as a pdf here
) if tools or functions of Photoshop seem mysterious you.
