Using this app and a bluetooth laser measure tool (Bosch GLM 50C), I mapped the interior of my house. It took me about an 30 minutes to get used to the controls on the app and taking measurements with the laser measure tool. After becoming familiar with the app and tool, I can measure rooms quickly. When I first tried the app, I only used the camera. I had a good experience getting the floorplan made when I cleared out the corners in a room. Sometimes the floorplan didn't come out great, but it didn't take long to try again. The floorplans using only the camera were surprisingly good. They were sometimes off by 3 inches, but that's really good. Was easy to manually correct. I wanted higher accuracy, and bought the best value bluetooth laser measure.
Surprised me with how easy and accurate this app is. Great functions for a free app. I would recommend playing around with it a little beforehand if you will be on a schedule (or have a realtor with you). The how to videos are not fast forwardable and it takes a minute to get the hang of things.
It's a handy app to have for designing rooms but it crashes Everytime you leave the app for a second. I like to go online and do research on room sizes whilst I'm using the app on my phone but every time I go back into the app it's frozen. I have to close the app and reopen it, which takes a while every time. Needs to be fixed to get any better a rating than that
The only issue I have is that I don't want to measure anything with the camera, but I can't disable that feature or get it out of the way. I constantly get nagged about calibrating, and setting measurements and placement by hand isn't exactly optimal. That being said, it's the best I've used on Android so far.
I don't use the camera to capture or measure a room at all as this has not proven to work well for me in the past. Instead I draw the room manually by selecting "Square room" or "Free Form". Tecnical Support can also be better. They don't work with you to achieve a solution instead they just apologize for not being able to do something. More than once I had received the excuse we get hundreds of requests every day. I told them I found a glitch in the software and they didn't even ask for an example to give their team something to work with. Instead I got I'm sorry this is happening. I sent them pictures anyway.
I like this app. Found it incredibly fiddly at first but once you clget the swing of it it's very user friendly. My one complaint is for a personal project I'm working on involves a house that had been extended. Unfortunately this means that some of the external wall is internal and this app doesn't let you account for that so the measurements are off on one side of the house. It would be great to have an option to adjust the depth of some of the walls. Can see myself using this app over most others, but I may have to avoid using it as a literal house plan app unfortunately... For now *crosses fingers for update*
