Cubit – AR Measure Toolbox
By Made by Windmill, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Cubit lets you measure distances with its Ruler tool and visualize the size of objects with its Box tool. Everything you do is saved in the History tool. Unlike other “AR ruler” apps, Cubit's intuitive UI makes it easy to take accurate measurements.
Cubit features include:
• Ruler tool - measures distance between points. You can put as many ruler lines in the scene as you like and they're tappable so they can be deleted. The measurement label on the line follows the camera so that it's always visible.
• Box tool - visualize the size and position of objects of all kinds. For example, if you're thinking about buying a couch, you can lay a box down of that exact size to see if it will fit in your space. You can then measure around it with the Ruler tool.
• History tool - see all your previous measurements. Any time you create a ruler line or a box, a photo is automatically taken and stored in History. You can also snap a photo of the scene to History at any time.
• Boxes and ruler lines can be placed next to each other so, for example, you could see how much room you'd have from your new couch to the wall next to it.
• All lines and boxes are selectable and removable.
• More tools are coming soon!
— What kinds of things can Cubit measure?
Cubit is best at measuring across horizontal flat surfaces, but can also measure vertical surfaces with less accuracy.
— What devices does Cubit work with?
Cubit uses Apple's new ARKit technology which requires iOS 11 on an iPhone SE, iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone X, iPad Pro, or new 9.7-inch iPad (2017).
— How accurate is Cubit?
In our testing with ideal conditions (flat horizontal surface and good lighting), measuring accuracy is around 99%. For vertical surfaces, double-check that the start and end points are correct as you measure. If they are, the measurement should have the same accuracy.
— How can I access previous measurements or virtual boxes I placed?
Use the included History tool! Cubit automatically takes photos of lines and boxes as you place them, and is even smart enough to automatically update its snapshots if it sees a better photo opportunity arise.
— Are there any in-app purchases or advertisements?
Nope! Cubit is a one-time upfront charge and will never show ads.
— Why “Cubit”?
Glad you asked! The cubit is a unit of measurement used by multiple ancient civilizations. For fun, try out the “Sumerian” setting while using Cubit :-).

If you’re enjoying Cubit so far, we’d super appreciate if you left us a review! We’re a small (only two people) independent software company, and positive reviews help us keep working on Cubit. Thanks so much!
Stuck on calibration
App keeps telling me to look around to calibrate. Message never goes away or indicates that calibration is working.
