Ok, but needs width measurement too
I read the other reviews & to combat the problem using the slider I put a thin sock on my son. That worked perfectly. I haven't tried with my daughter, but I'm sure it'll work.
The size I got measuring his foot was in the range of what I thought it would be, so I didn't have any issue with incorrect sizing. The same should be true for my daughter. The key for me was to be really sure my son's heel was lined up with the heel at the bottom of the screen. I had him lay back on the couch and bend his knee to put his foot on my screen while I could still see.
However, both of my children have measured with wide or even extra wide feet. Without a width measurement, I still don't know what size to order.
Foot touching screen makes moving the bar next to impossible
In theory, this is a pretty neat idea. However, it is terribly implemented. The light pressure of the child's foot on the iPad confuses the touch screen in that when you try to move the bar, it does not recognize the touch because it is already sensing the child's foot. What would be really cool and functional would be to take a digital foot print from the child and then determine the size from that. As is, this is very difficult to use and when I did get a reading, it was much too small for what my children actually wear, as we have a number of pedipeds to compare to.
I didn't have a problem with the slider working. I held my finger on the circle for a couple of seconds then it worked well. It did measure her feet slightly bigger than what stride rite did. But all in all a great option.
