THIS IS THE RULER YOU WANT.
This app totally blew me away from the moment I opened it and saw that it wasn't like all the other so-called ruler apps. I've downloaded countless of them, all claiming to be AR enabled measurement apps, yet every single one of them was either too difficult to learn and/or use or they simply didn't work at all. Either way, none of them lasted more than 30 minutes on my phone. Honestly, I was expecting one of those outcomes when I decided to try this app as a last ditch effort at having a working, reliable ruler on my iPhone. You know what it took for me to learn to use this app? A 17-SECOND HOW-TO VIDEO THAT'S AVAILABLE FROM THE SETTINGS PAGE. Hallelujah, Devs! You've earned my business for as long as you keep updating this app - oh! And that's the other thing! I'm usually such a tightwad, especially when it comes to paying subscription fees for the "Pro version" of any app - I can't believe I'm typing this, but I truly think this app is worth EVERY PENNY! Save yourself the headaches and just download it. (You can even take it for a free 3-day test-drive before you get billed for the annual fee.)
I would say for what it is, your app is definitely a cool idea and I like it a lot( hence why I am giving 4 stars. However, One change I would make is for you guys to find a way for the points to snap to the edge of a surface you are trying to measure (kinda like a vision system on a cmm works). I say that because I notice a large user error in trying to get the points on the edge of what I am trying to measure. If you guys can figure out how to make your measuring points sense the edge of a part and allow me to pick a point and have it snap to it, you guys would have the perfect measuring app and it would be one that I would trust to use in replacement of a tape measure.
Love it! I know it isn’t accurate.
Ok. I have to say the negative reviews are pretty harsh. Many are because they aren’t paying attention to “6s and above”. Others expect it to be dead accurate. Folks, AR is just in it’s infancy. For an early attempt at taking measurements in 3D space, it’s pretty darn good and I think the approach is on the right track. Yes it needs some additional prerequisite calculations to place the anchors before selecting start and stop points (and the reticle needs to light up when you have an anchor highlighted) but it’s a work in progress. And good grief, it’s free so stop complaining. Keep an eye on this one, I can’t wait to see future versions. Nice work y’all.
Nice AR demo but not better than guesstimating by eye.
Be aware, the first time I tried this app, I discovered than none of the AR apps were working on my iPhone 8 for some reason. After a quick google search I tried rebooting the phone and it worked fine afterwards. I don’t know if this will happen again or was because it was the first time I had used the capabilities of arkit.
Great idea. Needs a lot of work.
This is a great idea for an app, and I love the AR features. However, there are a lot of glitches. For instance, it attempts to get a layout of a room/object and line it with yellow dots. Some of these dots are floating in thin air, others are way behind the object. If you stand and measure in one place, you won’t get an accurate measurement at all. If you bring the camera of your phone exactly to the two points you want to measure, you get a better reading but still inaccurate. I never got the same reading with the app that I did with an actual tape measure - no matter what I tried. This is a great idea but it needs a lot of work. (Note: I tested all the other competing apps on the App Store today and none are any better).
Interesting but suffers from serious bugs
This is an interesting app but there are some huge problems with it. In large rooms or over larger distances the app completely fails. Much of the time it will stop tracking the distance mid-line, lines that have already been drawn will be shifted around as you take other measurements, and in some cases lines will just vanish. This app furthers the new subscription bs that has infected the App Store as of late but I did not take any stars off for that. Note to devs: photo mode should be free because you can take a screen capture with your phone; why make us pay for something we can already do?
Not as awesome as I hoped
It looks like it can do amazing things, maybe in the pro, but the free version it was incredibly hard to measure my desk or walls, I would end up several feet or inches away on one end of the measurement quite often. The numbers were within a few inches usually, once a foot off, it was not close enough for what I required. The pay for benefits I never tried before I uninstalled the app, turns out a tape measure actually works well to measure things, much easier than trying to get this app to attach to the corner of a desk or a wall. To the devs, good effort, it looks like you might be outmatched by Apple in iOS 12 though, best of luck.
So far so good
This is pretty handy so far, just downloaded it and I’ve put to use a number uses as a full time photographer and a part time property manager. Finding uses for it more and more. Going to try some long distance applications as I’m taking my rifle out for some target shooting. Saw some negative reviews but seemed like most “new app” concerns and and few people not following through with instructions. Will update review along the way. But as of now so far so good...
Tried to measure a TV screen and it couldn’t even do that, it was inaccurate. It’s not intuitive at all; no matter how many yellow dots are around, it hardly sticks and when you step back, the measurement starting point has moved to the middle of the object. Finally, the tip to turn on the flashlight is probably the one thing that’d make this app usable (even in a well-lit area) is locked behind a paywall. They even disable your phone’s flashlight while using the app. For $25 I can just make a one-time purchase of my own tape measure... useless! And before the developer comes in here with the same canned response: yes, I looked at the tips (see above) and watched the how-to video.
Terrible... DO NOT GET THIS
The pro option came on while I was trying to figure out how to measure something. Now I cant find anything in the settings to say no.... only the ominous warning that I will be charged if I don’t cancel at least 24 hours before the end of the 3 day trial. It doe not even say what that charge will be. I am so screwed..... I hate this app. I don’t even know how it works yet. All I know is that if I don’t figure it out in the next 48 hours, I will pay some kind of money.... this is really bad.... I hope others read this warning!!!!!!! I hope the developer reads this and helps me before I am stuck with a bunch of charges on mu skinny bank account!!!!!
Just like all the other apps
I downloaded it thinking it was going to be really easy to measure things and stuff by reading the reviews but when I downloaded it I realized you couldn’t turn the camera and so I tried to take a picture then measure it but I have to sign up for a “free” trial and it wouldn’t let me do anything else besides the basics.I was really disappointed because all the reviewers said it was a really good app and it is but I wish there was at least one app without people having to sign up for for “free trials”
I was very skeptical of this app and I tested it around 20 different times scaling it to objects I could prove the length of. Other than a few bugs, where the computer gets confused about where you are looking, it works accurately almost every time. I measured myself, and it checked out with almost exact accuracy. Would highly recommend.
This app blows worse then my moms boyfriends soccer team. They make it so you can’t even use the flashlight on your phone! You have to buy the upgrade to be able to use your light. That’s like paying to unlock your house door every time you come home?! The lowest I could go was 1 star but it needs negative 16 stars. Plus the measurements aren’t accurate. I would rather drive across the country to Home Depot and steal a tape measure and wait my time in the county jail for stealing the tape measure. Hope I remembered what I was measuring in the first place. and do that.. Like I said this app blows. (Thank you for your time)
It’s good but there’s some major issues
I downloaded this app as a last resort because the Apple one completely fails when I measured, same with other apps. I tried it and did a couple of tests and it was pretty accurate, so high hopes for this one. Then when I try to measure my walls, it does the same thing, it fails. I measured super slow and close to the wall and it completely cuts out! I read the tips but it should be able to replace a measuring tape right? Now I’m here with my trusty tape and measuring my walls.
Should be 4 stars But…
There are NO instructions at all. What I learned is that you move it slowly around what you desire to measure, to allow the app to get its bearings, then move the camera CLOSE to the starting point prior to tapping, then again CLOSE to the ending point prior to tapping that. With this procedure it works great. Other than not knowing how to use its WONDERFUL
