Apple's Measure App Could Kill The Tape Measure

51 ratings | 7431 views
Apple is launching a new Measure app in iOS 12 in the next few months that will let you size anything with just your iPhone. You no longer have to go searching for a tape measure while hanging pictures or when trying to determine if a couch will fit in your living room. I recently tried the new Measure app in Apple's iOS 12 developer beta. It uses the advanced cameras on newer iPhones like the iPhone X, and will presumably work on Apple's new batch of devices coming soon. Other augmented reality apps — the type that let you interact with the real world through your phone — have been available in the iTunes App Store and for Android phones. But this is the first time Apple has introduced its own version. Here's a preview. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

There is also an app called EchoRuler which uses sound waves to measure distances between flat surfaces. It is as accurate as the sonic ones from Home Depot. It works up to 20 feet.

Not accurate, and can't be used for long distance measurements

One of the problems I sometimes have is when I can't measure something because I forget to charge my tape measure. Fortunately, that won't be an issue any longer.

Looks like he only has used apple phones. I doubt it is any bit accurate since you are pointing at a distorted angles with a shaky hand...
