About this app

EasyMeasure shows you the distance to objects seen through the camera lens of your Android device. All without a tape measure or ruler! By installing EasyMeasure on your phone, you turn your device in a virtual tape measure & ruler. To conduct a measurement, simply aim your camera to an object in your surroundings, and EasyMeasure displays the distance towards that object on top of the camera image. The measurement can even determine the height and width of the object. With its amazing 3D Augmented Reality (AR) camera overlay grid, using EasyMeasure is very intuitive and easy!

Use the tape measure and ruler to find out how far it is towards that boat at the other side of the lake. Tape measure how tall buildings are. Use the app as a golf-aid ruler. Tape measure your friend's height. The possibilities of the tool are endless!

How does it work? The EasyMeasure tape measure and ruler app uses the height of the camera lens and its tilt angle to calculate the distance to the object. For the measurement, simple trigonometry based on geometric triangles is used. This approach is much more accurate than other approaches, like sonar and acoustics based methods. A comprehensive animated tutorial on how to use EasyMeasure is included.

This app is very inaccurate. Calibrated as directed, even tried the full variety of settings in advanced options - nothing has improved it. Also says that it saves photos for further editing and sharing, and while you can visually see the photos in the app's gallery, it does not allow you to view them and simply says image not found.

Completely inaccurate. Apparently the distance from my bed to the wall is 25 metres. My room is not that big. The building I can see from outside my window is about 16 inches away. It also randomly switched from metres over to inches in the first 5 minutes and I couldn't find any settings to switch it back. Most of the buttons don't seem to do anything either, there's a toolbar of icons none of which respond when you press them. Worst app ever? It's a contender that's for sure...

Extremely bad UI and UX design. There is no calibration button on my device after entering the lens height so impossible to take measurements of any meaning. Clicking the advanced settings then backing out of them changes the units used for lens height which should be a more discoverable and clear option. It was not obvious that the onscreen target can be moved and not clear what all of the buttons in the main camera view are for.
