Distance Measure

By RBetjes

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


This app lets you measure the point-to-point (great-circle) distance between two or more waypoints on a map or measure the surface area defined by a polygon having three or more points as its corners.
It uses online maps so it needs an internet connection.

Tap and hold to set a new waypoint, tap the options icon to read the manual or to open the info view to change the map type or the measuring unit. You can choose between (kilo)meters, feet/miles and nautical miles. The options menu also lets you choose to go to the Save/Restore view.

What's New in Version 3.2.0

An extra button called "Email" is added under the options button. This lets you send an email with the current map of measurements as an attachement. The email can be sent from within the App.

Perfect App

I had to find a tool like this when Google took away the measure feature. This app works great for me. I've only used the distance measurement so far. Put a first waypoint and save, and you have a "pin". Maps are reasonably up to date, some are a bit old >1 yr at least. Take a screen shot of your map and keep it in your photos. The email feature is nice too. Just what I wanted. Simple and accurate. Nice job!

Does not work as described.

According to the description you can change the distance measured in meters, feet, miles, etc. I cannot figure out how to make this happen. Also as one other reviewer said the manual shows a red X to delete waypoints, but that isn't on the app either. I found another app called Distance Pinner which is the same as this but does all the features advertised. The only feature it does not have is saving routes. I deleted this one.


One of the very few apps that actually does what it says it does. Very easy to use, straightforward and with just a few clicks you can gain tremendous amount of information re distances, square footage etc.
