Pretty neat..but...what is/does the Watch app do??!
I have been playing around with this and it's pretty handy actually since I don't usually need more than estimated distance nothing precise like hanging pictures etc but I got this because I was DYING to know how the watch app was adding to it....don't know yet. Still just shows a yellow screen with in/cm on one end and "Keep" on the other but the big 0.0 in the center does nothing.
If I am missing something I'd love to know I was really hoping you could at the bare minimum maybe see your measurements changing in that as you play finger-slinky trying to contort around to keep the phone str8, and at BEST able to lay your arm like on a door frame and move up and watch it tick off inches. I had a app on the phone that somehow did that using the GPS and gyro / motion coprocessor I think. Well if anybody knows the suspense is really not killing me
Surprisingly accurate, easy to use
Gaining accuracy with this app does take a little practice, but I've measured 20+ feet with well under .5" of error. (The app gives you a way to unlock double the measuring distance.)
This is really for all those distances that would be hard to eyeball. (Is that 25" or 26"? Is that 7'6" or a bit more/less?) You probably aren't going to use it all that often, and it's certainly not the fastest way to measure ever invented, but it's easy and accurate and doesn't take any space in your pocket.
Useful in a pinch
Not sure I would trust this app if I needed to be completely accurate but I'm still in practice mode so I can't in all good conscience give this app a low score. What I have discovered so far is that this electronic tape measure is super good in a pinch and I can see it being very useful since most of us always have our smart phones handy. All in all, I think this is a clever app/a clever idea. Kudos to the Dev(s)! 😊
