Turns your phone into an accurate ruler, with both inches and centimeters! Allows for scrolling down up to the 100 cm mark, making it a "meter stick." Distances calculated accurately in all but emulated (on-computer) environments. Users of custom ROMs and a select few phones may produce erroneous results -- please manually enter your phone's DPI in the "Preferences" menu to fix this issue.

    I am using the app on my S4 and it does not want to allow me to enter the settings.

    Would give another 1 stars if can be moved to sdcard. And to measure longer than 1 m. Pretty accurate and reliable. Thanks.

    V1.2+ includes calibration features in preferences. Mostly due to custom ROMs that this is needed.

    Calibration issues. Ruler accurate to .5 inch, or 1 cm, but started veering off further up the ruler. Tmobile Comet (Huawei IDEOS U8150). Shame, I really liked the simplicity of the UI and the lack of obnoxious permissions.
