Turn your iPhone or iPad into a tape measure with Measure. Measure enables you to quickly gauge the size of real objects, a person’s height, and it can automatically provide the dimensions of rectangular objects.
• Draw lines and estimate their length in both horizontal and vertical dimensions.
• Automatically measure rectangular objects.
• Share measurements with friends via Mail, Messages, and more.
On the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max (and later), iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation and later), iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation and later):
• Horizontal and vertical guide lines appear when measuring large objects for easier and more accurate measurements.
• Instantly measure a person’s height from the floor to the top of their head, hair, or hat.
• Save measurements from a single session, complete with screenshots, so they’re easy to access and share whenever you need them.

iPhone, 13 promax March 2023
Measure has been around a while now, I hardly use it at all as when I measure I usually have to measure by hand to get the exact measurement but then this app should show me when that line is straight by showing me a square angle, right? I can’t even remember if it doesn’t now I don’t think I did making my lines in the measurement square are the whole point. Also, I would recommend distance measurement is in vertical if it measures height than it should be able to measure the height of a tree I want to cut down. Or the distance between me and and deer for instance, or house. What it’s just a basic app for Apple phone, right?????? Please improve. And I’ll give it a four-star. That’s like a five star for me by the way. Very very, very picky. Because I fix these things and I am and know how apps work. It’s free but it’s one of the best because the ones that cost money. Your free trial ends, so I love this app. But being an iPhone staple now, requires it to meet certain quality standards correct???? Thank you.
Actually Not Bad At All, Especially For A Free App
The key seems to be to take your time, make sure you have a good direct angle on what you are measuring. The biggest key is to be sure you have laid out an accurate starting point and termination point, avoid taking curvature etc into the measurement. This is an app best used with solid angle items, like boxed packages for mailing, picture framing etc. avoid curved or funky shaped items. Those would be better measured with a soft measuring tape, like the ones used to measure your waist, etc. Kind of bare-bones app but it’s free. The more feature-laden apps out there are also subscription based and can cost up to $100 a year to use. Well worth it for the professional who would use it many times a day for mission critical stuff, but if you only need an app to take an occasional measurement here and there this is a perfectly adequate app for most instances.
So when I used the app it was good but then I used it one day and got curious and pulled out my real tape measure measuring something, when I used the tape measure it was 12 ft and 1 inch but when I used the app it was 12 ft 5 inch so the app isn’t perfect but it still gets the job done for a sloppy measurement just… don’t use it for actual construction work or anything that you need to measure that’s important.
