Bring a protractor with you where ever you go with this handy iPhone app. Now you, too, can measure precisely the lean of the Tower of Pisa!
Objects of any size can be measured; match boxes, houses, pyramids... anything you can capture with your iPhone's camera.
- Photo-based virtual protractor
- Multi-Touch protractor control
*NOTE* Be sure to update to iPhone OS 2.1 or greater; the photo capture process will speed up significantly.
Tested with iPhone OS 3.0.
A great 99 cent app
This is the sort of imaginative little app that really shows off the potential of the iPhone, in the endless recombinations of all the little gadgets inside. All we have here is a nice way of measuring angles: point and shoot, and use the protractor on the screen. Perfect for geeks like me. One small interface quibble: the central "protractor" control is a little large and sometimes conflicts with the smaller "angle" controls. This is a small case of nice looking decoration getting in the way of some functionality. On the whole a very nicely put together app-- could make this control smaller. Not enough to demote from the 5 stars this app deserves.
Was in a bind today and found this little app. Works great! Would be perfect for me if two things were done: add a semi transparent grid during photo capture, and allow the help text to be turned off on both screens (hard to see through it)
Looking forward to an update
crashes right after I take a picture
I originally gave this one star because it crashed after I took a picture but after 2.1 it works flawlessly.
