Was better before update Worked ok on my HTC Desire S (droid 2.3.5 / sense 3.0) but spirit level bubble always off to right (~84 degrees) when I know the device is level and crashes whenever I try to enter the settings menu! Please fix for 5 stars. UPDATE: spirit level sorted by calibrating the phone's IMU, and the latest update has stopped the crashing - thanks.
Works great If you know how to use it its great, I see a lot of reviews saying the cameras "range finder" is off. It doesn't work like a range finder, so you can't use it like one. It works through mathematics and the position of the phone relative to its gyroscope. The phone doesn't have a laser to get pinpoint accuracy, it uses geometry.
The girl in the jeans and green tank top blouse... I'd give you just about anything for her phone number. So what do ya say? :-) ***I just read the comments. Its disturbing. Look people this is a free app. If you think that youre going to get some sort of magical, point your phone at something then up pops the measurement accurate to the inch or foot you are too stupid to ever truly need an accurate figure. One would need a transit to get an accurate reading. Therefore this app is going to perform as expected. No need to complain & rate poorly
Works occasionally Sometimes it works great. But most of the time it has issues due to the camera rangefinder being a bit finicky. Aim at the base of object it accurately shows it approximately 4' away.... aim at the top of the object and suddenly it thinks it's 300' away.... and the height reads some stupid height that is way off. Occasionally, however, it gets it right. Problem is.... a lot of the time it's wrong... sometimes VERY wrong. Renders it somewhat useless. Shame really. I had high hopes.
Cool I measured how far away my wife was I told her to go waaaayyy over there I yelled keep going! The further away she was the better
Doesn't work oz you don't understand geometry. If you do, then it works pretty well. Hint: it's critical that the device height setting is correct. The app simply uses trigonometry, the device height, and the camera angle when pointing at the base of the object to calculate the distance. Accuracy decreases with distance. Camera zoom helps improve accuracy for distant objects.
