Meet TapMeasure, the spatial utility that combines computer vision and AR, creating a whole new way to capture and measure your space.
▶ 3D Room Builder
Create scale-accurate 3D models of rooms that you can measure and review immediately, or revisit later.
▶ Quick Measure
Capture point-to-point measurements with just two taps.
▶ Smart Level
Ensure picture frames and artwork are perfectly level, automatically.
TapMeasure is the fastest, smartest way to measure a physical space. Period.
• Geometric Recognition: Automatically detect rectangular objects like doors, windows, artwork, and more, and add them to your model.
• Quick Outlining: Create simple outlines of items on the walls or floor.
• Easy Sharing: Send your 3D model to anyone with a simple URL.
• SketchUp Export: Export your 3D model as an .SKP file, allowing you to view and edit in both free and pro versions of SketchUp.
We built TapMeasure as an easy to use, everyday spatial utility — but it also works great for pros, including interior designers, architects, contractors, real estate agents, appraisers, insurance agents, and anyone that needs quick, approximate 3D models and measurements.
TapMeasure combines the new ARKit framework in iOS 11 with advanced computer vision, to recognize and track objects. Since TapMeasure uses ARKit, you'll need an ARKit-compatible device (iPhone 6s or newer).
TapMeasure is built by the team at Occipital (occipital.com). We're the same team behind 360 Panorama, Structure Sensor, Canvas, Bridge, and other spatial computing products. We can't wait to see what you create with TapMeasure!
This update makes smart level even easier to use as walls are now automatically detected! A few UI bugs also got fixed.
Ratings and Reviews
Measurements not accurate
Well, this app would be amazing if it worked. However it’s failed the first 3 simple tests I gave it. The measurements it gave were simply inaccurate, and badly so. For example, the displayed measurement of the ground in front me read 4’5” in the app. I pulled out my tape measure and measured it, and the true distance was 6’.
A measuring tool that doesn’t deliver accurate measurements is useless. If I wanted an approximation I could do that by eye.
Also, this tool doesn’t measure vertical surfaces, which is what would come in vastly more helpful. Being able to measure a vertical line that would be physically inaccessible to me to measure with a tape measure- that’d be awesome! This app has no such functionally. Measuring horizontal surfaces in front of me can easily be done more accurately with a simple tape measure.
I reserve it one star because I haven’t yet tested the 3D room builder. That may be a more handy tool- approximate measurements in that case may be “good enough”.

Thanks for the detailed review and feedback (and for at least giving us 2 stars -- 1 is such a heart-wrencher). FIRST - regarding measurement on the ground, you should be seeing more accuracy than this. Could you try again with a few tips? 1) Turn on as much light as you can -- this helps the CV system. 2) Make sure to move your phone around a little more before you tap the ground plane, as this helps make the plane more accurate. 3) When you move from one end of a measurement to the other, make sure to keep plenty of "detailed" things in the camera's view. When moving over blank areas such as a white wall, measurements can be affected. SECOND - regarding vertical measurements! While the "Quick Measure" mode doesn't yet support vertical measurements, we do have a way you can make this work using the 3D Room Builder mode. Please check out this mini tutorial on how to do vertical measurements with 3D room builder: https://youtu.be/R4c4q5KSgqg. If you still have troubles, please reach out to email@example.com
Ridiculously close but not quite
This is ALMOST a working easy space measurement app. I tried the room measurement scanner...first off, it takes forever to map the floor surface even in highly lit rooms. Then when that was done, I started to drop the points to note the corners of the room...but for no apparent reason, the app MOVED the points around as I circled. When I came back to the first point to close the outline, it had somehow been moved like two feet to the left and about a foot off the ground. Utterly useless. And the tutorials make no mention of this problem or any way to compensate for or stop it. This is yet another failed attempt at an easier spatial mapping app for a phone. I literally could have measured all three bedrooms and living room of my new house with a pencil, pad and old fashioned measuring tape in the time it took me to finally get a single (wrong) scan of a single room. Junk.
This is a really cool and great idea, although with that in mind it wasn’t able to work as advertised, I tested it in a really well lit area and it had a couple of problems. 1) I had to keep moving the object around the room to find a spot for the app to even let me measure, it didn’t have enough confidence or points to go off of for some reason. 2) the measurements were off a perfect example I didn’t was measure a rectangle menu. It’s a 13 3/4”x6 1/2” menu (this was the closest object it got to getting the right measurement) it had plenty of points on the menu and when it measured it the app said it was 13”x 6” so it means that up. This was the one it got the closest but still, this menu or “media” should be relatively easy to measure compared to others, but it wasn’t able to.

Thanks for your feedback! We're considering adding more precision to the measurements when they're less than ~2 feet. That way you should get something more like ~ 13.5 x 6.5. It's great you were in a well-lit environment. The other thing to ensure is that you have enough visual details on the items you try to lock onto. Make sure you try out the Smart Level and 3D Room Builder feature -- they're even cooler than Quick Measure.
