Love it but…

Fantastic app. I have purchased several similar apps, all of which bugged me in more ways than one. Stumbled across this one and very glad I did. Great design. Easy to use and understand. Only fault is that it shows imperial measurements in feet and fractions of feet, while I think in feet and inches. That said, the three similar apps that I purchased all did the same thing. Go figure… Well, that's the point really isn't it, we don't want to go figure. Feet and inches please.
