Useful- needs one tweak
I was just getting ready to buy a real caliper but thought I would try this first.
It works great and is exactly what I needed.
It just needs one thing- and others have mentioned it- the ability to change the background color. The first thing I had to measure was solid black. Doable but would have been much easier with a contrast background color.
Cool but two bugs
Nifty gadget. Handy. Clever. Useful. However (bug #1) on the SETTINGS screen, the title bar sits on top of the INCHES FRACTIONS setting, so you cannot select that option. And (bug #2) turning on ability move the VERNIER JAW doesn't work - switches to ON, but once you leave the settings screen and go back to the caliper, you can't move the jaw, and return to the settings screen, you see the option defaults back to off.
iPhone 6s, iOS 10.0.1
Very pleased. Nice little tool that works exactly as stated. No problems at all!! Hey, it's free. Very easy to change from metric, inch, etc. Love the ability to lock the caliper jaws and set the sensitivity for moving them. The ad at the top is not in the way at all and doesnt bother me. Nice little measuring tool to have on the iPhone for easy use anywhere.
