TapeMeasure is a GPS based measurement tool which gives you the ability to take measurements from a previous position to your current position. It displays the latitude, longitude, altitude, and accuracy of your current position, as well as shows you the current measurement being taken. Measurement information includes the distance, height, and direction (heading) of the current position from the previous position. This information can be displayed in either feet/miles or meters/kilometers.
Once you find a position with enough desired accuracy, you can start a measurement and either watch the live measurement or exit the application and continue the measurement later. This feature is useful for saving power when GPS is enabled. You can pause measurement updates and then either resume measuring from the same start point, or reset your measurement and start again whenever you desire.
Please keep in mind that even under the very best conditions with a strong GPS signal on the iPhone or 3G iPad, measurement accuracy will be on the order of several meters/yards, and not inches. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEASURE SMALL THINGS like doorways, couches, paintings, etc. This tool is useful for measuring LARGE DISTANCES ONLY. If you have any questions, please visit our website and contact us before purchasing.
What's New in Version 1.1
Added vertical accuracy to display.
Minor bug fixes.
I need to measure distance from point A to B. This App does just that. I usually use a GPS handheld for that, but there is never one around at work. This app works to the normal accuracies of the GPS hardware. My distances are for 10 to 3000 meters and the app worked well to track the straight line distance.
Works as it should
If you need accuracy use a actual tape measure. If you just need a rough idea this app works just fine. Worth the .99 cents. You people can be so picky these smart phones aren't as smart as you want to believe.
Works just fine
Works just fine for me - as advertised. Accuracy good to about 15 ft, about what to expect from the GPS system.
Has never crashed .
