Description

Area Calculator that calculates the area of any shape you draw, regardless of scale or complexity.

Video demonstration here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg3k2rJULE4

• Trace around any .jpg .gif .png or .pdf image pasted from the iOS pasteboard, attached to an Email (.pdf only), or added to Dropbox.

• Accurately calculate the area of any shape by drawing.

• Set the canvas scale in ft / in / m / cm.

• Line lengths are displayed dynamically as you draw, allowing you to accurately portray the shapes dimensions.

• Snap to Grid or 90 Degrees allows for precise angles, and keypad input of numeric line lengths improves accuracy of freehand sketch's.

• When the shape is closed, the Area and Perimeter is displayed in either square meters, square centimeters, square feet, or square inches.

• What sets SketchAndCalc™ apart is that it calculates the area of irregular polygons, allowing you to draw any shape accurately with your finger to calculate its area.

• Edit lengths with numeric keypad - Double tap any line to launch a numeric keypad. Single tap the results bar to nominate the vertex to be moved. Enter a specific length, and tap anywhere on the canvas to submit the change.

• Edit vertex with double tap - Double tap any vertex to launch a numeric keypad. Single tap the numeric length in the title bar to enter a specific value, then tap anywhere on the canvas to submit the change.

• Re-establish vertex move with double tap.

• Paste images from other Apps into SketchAndCalc™

Needs some work but has potential for 5 stars

P210N Pilot

Downloaded this app to help me calculate some irregular areas for helping me to calculate ductwork surface area. This app isn't that intuitive and requires lots of playing around to learn it. The instructions are OK but could be better. Just play around with it and you will eventually understand the instructions. I think this app has a lot of potential, and if some features are added (along with more intuitive instructions), then I think this is a 5 star app. I'm excited to see what the developers do with this....nice start.

Needs a lot of work, not worth the price.

Paulinho Rocha

I bought this app because I needed to calculate some areas. The app proposes to calculate the area using a photo but it fails in a lot of aspects. I wouldn't have mind if I had paid $1 but definitely not worth the $4.99 price tag.

someone should really take this down

Don't get! This is no longer supported and won't run on your phone!
