Please watch the youtube video first so that you understand how to use the app. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wosk0hvZpHI
How it works: Using your android device to take a picture, you are able to measure any object as long as an object of known length (reference point) is in the picture. A predefined list including coins and standard credit cards are listed to use as your reference point. If you do not have any of these objects, you can use the calibration page which displays a ruler on screen so that you can measure your reference point (for example a car key). Since you know the length of one object, you can easily determine the length of the unknown object. Tape measure automatically calculates the length of the object as you move!
Accuracy: The accuracy of this app is down to 1/32in standard and .1cm metric. As long as you are able to accurately point to the edges of objects, you will get a measurement as accurate as using a tape measure. In some cases, you will get even a more accurate reading than a ruler! The user is able to zoom in to accurately measure objects. Make sure that your picture is square with the object in order to get an accurate measurement.
Ease of use: Tape Measure! gives directions at every step of the process in order to ensure that the user gets an accurate reading and understands what to do. If you have any questions please feel free to email me. I will respond back ASAP.

This rangefinder(telemeter) measures the Distance, Height, Width and Area of a target with your phone by trigonometry.
Usage is simple: just stand up and press the shutter. The important point is aiming the camera at the GROUND, NOT the object. (i.e. In order to measure the distance from someone, aim at his shoes.)
If it is inaccurate, please read the instructions in this app or see the checklist diagram in the blog. The sensors on your phone can be changed by OS version, firmware and battery status.
You can calibrate them with the calibrate menu and settings for yourself.

This rangefinder(telemeter) measures the Distance to a target by the camera perspective. The effective distance is 10m-1km. To measure the distance, you should know the height(width) of a target.
Don't worry!! Man's height is 1.7m(5.6ft), a golf flag is 7ft, a bus is 3.2m(10.5ft), a door is 2.1m(7ft). With that, we can guess the height of almost everything. It can be very useful to golfers.
Usage is simple: Input the height of the target, and touch the screen. If the target is aligned by 2 lines, get the measured distance.

Tape Measure Pro is an Android app, that measures distance using device’s camera and a target marker. The app recognizes the marker and shows the distance in real time.
***THIS APP REQUIRES A MARKER PRINTED ON A PAPER***
You can download and print the marker from here: http://studioiberia.net/android-apps/tape-measure-pro/marker/ (visit this page from your PC)
It's more like a laser rangefinder, than a simple tape measure, but requires a specific target (the marker).
It's very easy to use. Just point to the marker and see the distance.
It’s strongly recommended to try the free version of Tape Measure first before buying the PRO.
Some Sony/Sony Ericsson Xperia devices and some 3D devices(like the LG Optimus 3D) are not compatible with this app. If yours is one of these, do not buy the application. Or, if you have already bought it, you may request a refund, if the app doesn’t work.
If the camera reports correct values, Tape Measure Pro will work properly.
The only requirement for the user is to keep the marker centered on the screen and visible enough to be recognized by the app.
*By default the zoom is disabled. You can switch it to manual or automatic mode.
Some devices tested with a 10cm marker and Full Zoom
HTC One - 7 m (23 ft)
Samsung Galaxy S3 - 6 m (20 ft)
Samsung Galaxy S - 7 m (23 ft)
Some devices report wrong zoom values. The “Fixed” option is to try to fix those values. If yours shows wrong distance, choose this option.
If after applying the fix your device still shows wrong distance, just disable the Zoom in the settings. The range of measure will decrease, but the distance will be correct.
In the future there will be more methods for less compatible devices.
If you have any questions, please, contact me by email or website.
Simply hold the phone at eye level and align the cross hair on the ground at the point you want to measure. The phone will display a continuously updated horizontal distance from the camera to the point under the cross hair.
A one off calibration is required where you need to enter you eye level height i.e. the height from the ground up to your eyes.
The distance is calculated by trigonometry so for accurate measurements you need to always keep the phone at your eye level regardless of the angle of the phone pointing at the ground.
If you always maintain the phone at eye level and hold the phone steady whilst taking a measurement you should be able to get a typical accuracy of about +-3cm at 5m distance.
Now supports imperial measurement feet and inches alongside metric meters and centimeters.
- Input of measured values (e.g. measures of length, angle etc.) directly into a picture
- Marking of specifics (wiring, connections, ventilation etc.) and addition of side notes (voice recording, text, video)
- Creation of new projects and folders

This application turns your Android phone into a range finder, distance finder, and tape measure with no additional attachments needed. This application uses your device's camera to accurately calculate the distances of surrounding objects. This is a great golf range finder or distance measure for golf. The average golf flag is 7 feet tall. So input 7 feet for the height for a golf flag and then place measurement lines on the top and bottom of the flag for an accurate measurement of your distance from the flag :)
Before making your first measurement make sure to calibrate your device. The calibration take less than 10 seconds and is very easy. Nothing additional is needed, simply tap the two white dots on the screen and your device will be calibrated. The calibration is important for accuracy. You may need to adjust closer to either the top or bottom of the white circles for more accurate results. This will depend on what device you have. Though it it not necessary, verifying a proper calibration with a ruler or measuring stick will guarantee more accurate results every time for the lifetime of the application. Once a device is properly calibrated it is not necessary to re-calibrate.
Directions: (after calibrating)
1) Enter the objects height (tap the text box in the top right hand corner and input the height value via keyboard)
2) Adjust the units of measurement (tap the height drop down box located directly above the height input text box)
3) Line up the top and bottom lines with top and bottom of the object (tap the top of the object and slide finger until aligned)
4) Read the distance value :)
This application can convert between inches, feet, yards, millimeters, centimeters, meters, and kilometers.
Tap the height and distance drop downs to see list of conversions.
This application was developed on the Samsung Galaxy line of devices but should work for all devices with a rear facing camera.
Please send me an email if you are having any trouble. (firstname.lastname@example.org) I am more than happy to help.
1.Place your smart-phone (equipped with The Touch Tape) onto the object you want to figure out how long it is. (Place your phone’s edge onto the one side of the object)
2.Touch the screen, then Touch Tape remembers the length of your smart-phone.
3.Move you smart phone by the apparent size of your smart phone’s length and touch your screen once again.
4.Repeat step 3
5.On last time, slice your screen with the other side of the object.
6.Then, name the object and save it. (The calculated value only saved when you do not input the name of the object)
Piece of cake, huh?
Easy & Simple portable scale! Touch Tape!
-Touch : Add the length of your smart phone.

A must have tool for accurate measurements and camera measure.
This android app performs remote, non-contact in plane measurements using Android phone or Android tablet. It uses the phone camera and any available object with known size as a reference. Most common reference objects like credit card, sheet of paper, DVD/CD, etc. are included in the application. Moreover you can use your own custom objects with known size to do camera measure.
If your friend or colleague is next to you, you don't need a ruler: use his height as a reference and measure objects around you.
Use the app in medical area: for example, to measure distance between pupils by holding a credit card next to your face.
Measure fish size very quickly and also you can load your pictures and measure all previous catch using your own height.
Length-Mode - measure and divide an object in certain ratio or mark length on the object using ratio ruler (slider).
FreeHand-Mode - measure an object in any direction and compare sizes to each other.
Angle-Mode - measure length, area and angle on an object in any direction and compare sizes to each other.
Area-Mode - area calculator, measure area of different shapes
Circle-Mode - measurements on circular objects: radius, arc, length, sector, area, angle.
New in v4.4 distance in pixels on screen and original image, pic load from Picasa, Drive, file browsers
- auxiliary lines in Free Mode
- scale grid, multiple rulers, add points on line in Area Mode, cycling through points, fractions.
The App shows a measurement result in different units like meters, millimeters, centimeters, feet, inches based on user settings. It also calculate dimensions of the object in relative units with respect to the reference object
You have an option to make a snapshot of the camera view and work with a still camera measure image instead of live camera view or load picture from a photo gallery.
The App is useful to measure bigger distances on a plane, where a simple ruler or tape measure are difficult to apply. All you need to do is to place a reference object (credit card or sheet of paper) on the measurement plane, make sure that the object of interest fits into the camera view and take your measurement
Partometer can be handful if:
- moving in and need to measure size of your room quickly
- buying furniture and want to estimate its size
- measure baggage size
- when buying glasses and need to measure Pupillary Distance (PD)
- measure fabric or cloth area and size
- measure trees
- need to measure out some distances on objects (handcraft, woodcraft, etc.)
- outdoor and want to know size of a big object that practically impossible to measure with a ruler or tape measure. For example, you can measure height of a house using sheet of paper as a reference object.
- measure small objects just by placing them on A4 or Letter sheet
- measure or compare height of a person
- compare objects to each other
- measure angles, pitch gauge
- measure spark plug gap
- measure rectangle areas
- measure bearings, roller bearings, nuts, rings.
- measure any internal feature or free, irregular shape area on X-ray if you have a reference, useful for dentists
- metric and imperial units: meters, centimeters, millimeters, inches, feet
Features: flashlight, autofocus, Save and Share results.
Depending on the distance to object with this camera measure app you can achieve sub mm resolution
