The DISTO™ sketch app supports the new Leica DISTO™ models from Leica Geosystems. With this laser distance meters you can even directly transfer measuring data right into a sketch or photo via Bluetooth 4.0 technology.

With the new sketch gallery you have all your sketches at a glance.
- experience your sketches as easy as a gallery
- with time stamps you can see when you created your sketches
- with geo-tagging you can see where you created your sketches

Bring your DISTO™ to the next level! Once your DISTO™ is paired to the app, you can get more information about your DISTO™, such as:
- videos
- user manual
- extend your warranty
- find accessories
- more apps supporting your DISTO™

The DISTO™ sketch app in many cases, replaces the classical note pad. You can easily draw sketches (e.g. layouts of rooms) and apply measuring results to them. Each line can be named and you can even add comments as needed.

Use the sketching app to take photographs of the object you are measuring. With this functionality, you have an ideal tool to record your daily work.

Create as many sketches as needed and add titles to them, making it easier to apply the measuring results after returning to your office. You can also email sketches directly from the job site to the office for further processing. This increases your productivity, saving you time and money.

No feet or inches? Really?

This app could be so great. I expect so much from a company like Leica. I’ve owned many of their products over the years and they’ve generally shared the trait of having relatively poor English documentation. This app suffers the same. It was a great start. I keep opening it every year hoping it finally lived up to potential which I would gladly pay for. Sigh. I cannot recommend this app right now. (DISTO 810 touch is my current laser measuring tool)

Can’t use my keyboard when connected

I just bought the disto x4 which is a really nice piece of hardware. I downloaded this app to my iPhone 6s Plus. It took some playing around to figure it out, but I ended up generally liking it for sketching building elevations. Unfortunately, it has a fatal flaw for me. My phone keyboard is somehow disabled while my phone is connected to my x4 by Bluetooth. I am unable to switch to a note app to make notes on an inspection or reply to a text. I am also unable to utilize the text function within the disto app.
I like the “squiggly line” option where you can draw a free form shape and the app converts it to a square, rectangle or other shape if it appears vaguely like that is what you meant to draw. I imagine it would be even better on an iPad...but again, no keyboard means no bueno.

I wanted to like it, but just can’t

This app needs a lot of follow up work and cleansing. The basic idea was there, but the execution of said ideas and what came out of it is extremely disappointing for such a reputable company. Lost measurements, no obvious area calculations, not being able to send PDFs (says your device is not set up for email), no wall function in sketch, very unintuitive sketching. And the list goes on. Leica you can do better considering the price tag of your LMDs. You’re better off reading the measurements of the LMD and writing them down. Or you switch to the competitor in blue.
