Simple, user-friendly, not obnoxious The app works really well, and is really cleanly designed. It doesn't push ads at you but does allow you to donate if you wish. It does allow calibration, which is a must if you want accurate measurements. I wish it allowed you to a select calibration length when using a ruler though. My oneplus one screen is way bigger than 2 inches, so calibrating that way leaves a wide margin to extrapolate. Still 5 stars :)
??? I am sure this works just as it should, based off of the numerous excellent reviews. For me, however, I need more info/help options as to how you are supposed to actually use the ruler to measure an item. Let's just say as an example that I wanted to measure the length of a dart. How would I go about doing this with this app? There are calibration help options, but there are no actual help options as far as how to simply use the app. I feel like I'm definitely missing something, lol. Please advise...
Keeper This app makes its way onto every phone I use. It just does what I need without any fuss and comes handy all the time. How else are you going to measure how fat your fingers are so you can buy a ring on eBay on the go, right? 😀 Or how big to cut a passport pic etc. Love the axis and that you can switch between imperial and metric. No ads, no permissions, what's not love.. Thanks to dev for this little but mighty 'Swiss knife' tool!
Handy app for small measurements (the size of your phone). The way it works is there's a ruler on the top part of the phone and a ruler on the side part of the phone. When you want to meassure something, put the screen with the ruler markings next to the item you want to measure, then move the line or the half-circle (at the end of the line away from the corresponding ruler marks) forwards or backwards or up and down respectively; the measurements then appears in the half circle. Can only measure items the size of your phone screen.
It does exactly what it claims to do. It has saved me in a lot of situations where I don't have any access to a ruler or tape measure. It's also nice to be able to quickly pop this app open to figure out some something's measurement in both inches and millimeters. Very handy!
Not what I hoped for Seems to do the job well... Up to 4 inches. I understand I could keep moving my phone and tally the numbers but I had hoped I could tap a point on the ruler move my phone or slide the ruler and it would keep tally for me. Don't know if any other app does that, but I'm about to go find out. If not, these guys should add that feature. It would be a nice addition.
Full screen mode for supported devices (Android 4.4 and up).
It is now possible to restore a saved measurement from the history list.
Set the length displayed manually, useful for measuring and transferring a known length.
