MeasureKit allows you to measure different things in the world using your iPhone’s or iPad’s camera.
Leveraging Apple’s new ARKit technology, MeasureKit contains 9 measuring AR tools:
1) Ruler — measure straight lines on any surface, such as a desk or wall.
2) Magnetometer — measure magnetic field force around your device.
3) Trajectory — measure by “drawing” (moving your device) in the real world.
4) Face Mesh — check different attributes and export a 3D model of your face (available on iPhone X).
5) Marker Pin — measure distance from device camera to fixed points in space.
6) Angles — measure corners.
7) Person Height — measure how tall someone is.
8) Cube — visualize how big something is.
9) Level — check if something is horizontal or vertical
Chaining Mode in Ruler Tool allows you to quickly link multiple rulers together in one measuring session and measure floor area enclosed by a chain — useful for measuring an area of a room.
MeasureKit features an advanced internal algorithm for world understanding using ARKit. This allows the app to offer really smooth and accurate measuring experience including on walls and other vertical planes. While most of similar AR ruler apps are limited to measuring accurately only on a desk & floor, with MeasureKit you can easily measure a painting on your wall, for example.

Ratings and Reviews
I tested the simple measuring ruler and it doesn't work at all. The first thing is that it's very difficult to use. You have to center the camera to where you want to measure and manually move the camera around to make the measurements. From a hand coordination perspective, this is not the most accurate way to measure, since if you have slightly shaky hands, the measurement will be drastically off. A better option could be to use the finger for setting both the start and end points of the measurement.
I don’t get the little white ring, it disappears and reappears and I don’t know when it is ready to measure. The measurement I did take was close but not accurate. All but one of the features you have to buy the app.
Always inaccurate, iOS 12 makes this app beyond useless. Magnetic field is kind of a cool idea but terribly implemented with no accuracy.
Rest of the app is available in other parts of iOS 12 or better, free alternatives with active developers. No reason for these AR measuring apps.
