Have you ever wanted to measure the length of something under 9" (4" for iPhone)?

Don't want to spend 10 cents on a wood ruler at your local hardware store?

Ads block utility

An ad bar appears across the ruler at the bottom of the screen. It's in the one worst place it could possibly be to prevent being able to measure an object. It's only a buck to remove them, or is it? They play a game with "how much is it worth to you to remove the ads?" The polices range from $0.99 to several dollars. It's just a measuring stick. Businesses give them away for free. It's not worth a buck to me. Time to find a new app.

Very bad!!!!

This app is ridiculous. The lines pop up all over the screen and you have to continually delete them. I have tried many times to make it work. But it doesn't. Thinking the app would work if the ads were not there I was suckered into paying the 99 cents. The 99 cent charge is a scam. They will not give a refund. When I file a problem complaint with Apple's "Report a Problem", I am directed in circles, filling out more forms and giving more information to the developer. Please be forewarned, do not purchase anything from this developer, Walz Development. You will be sorry if you do.

Very handy

I think it's great. I added it to my iPad mini and find it great for quick measurements of small objects. Hey for those of us that are lazy and don't want to get up and find an actual ruler this does a fine job. It's also fun to play with.
