expired [Android, iOS] $0 - Moasure - The Smart Tape Measure (Was $9.99) @ Google Play/iTunes

2720

This very useful app has never been posted on Ozbargain. No ads or IAP.

iOS link.

Convenient and easy to use, Moasure is a 300m/1000ft tape measure, ruler, protractor and a goniometer (angle measurer) - all in one simple app.

Simply move your phone from one point to another point and Moasure displays the distance or height difference between the two points, or the angle between them.

There’s no tape, no string, no laser beam or camera images. Instead Moasure uses the same technology found in space rocket guidance systems – the phone’s accelerometers and gyroscopes – to calculate precisely how far you have moved your phone. Moasure really is rocket science!

Mod Update: Android Price has expired. available again.

      Can you give us a summary please?

    • +5 votes

      No dont read the reviews. They are mostly good apart from a few which say its a bit fiddly, and all of which have a response from the company thanking for the feedback and asking to contact them for further support. For a free app you should just try it.

    Why does the app need to know my location?

      Measures via satellite :)

        So you haven't used it then?

        "Moasure uses the motion sensors - accelerometers and gyros - in your phone to measure. It does not use GPS, the camera or the internet to measure."

      “Measurements are affected by the precise location at which they are taken. Gravity, measured by the accelerometers within Moasure, alters with altitude and latitude (you weigh about 0.5% more at the poles than on the equator) . But rest assured, we promise Moasure will never share your location data.”

        we promise Moasure will never share your location data

        … because Google will share it anyway after you turn location sharing off.

        Yet another "rogue engineer" making privacy "snafus" that effects every single user so Google violates their privacy while the user believes they have location tracking turned off.

          Can you please give one example where Google has shared any data with any third party?

            •  

              @leetguy101: Did you read the article? Google didn't choose to share any data, customers did. People deliberately gave specific third parties access to read their emails - on a case by case basis, you have to give each company access individually - and then those companies read those emails. There's nothing mysterious, concealed or underhanded about it.

              Once you give a third party access to those emails, obviously your relationship is with that company and that company's privacy policy applies. How could Google know what other companies do with the data you have given them? Google can vet those companies to make sure they are above board - which they do - but that's about it.

              The whole premise of the article is strange. If you downloaded a program by a third party on your computer to read emails in your Outlook inbox, I don't see how Microsoft would be responsible for what that company did with your data.

          Exodus Privacy reports Moasure has 5 trackers, 4 of which are Farcebook. Coarse and fine location access.

      Yeah I find it funny that the first prompt I get from the app is to allow it to use my location anytime even when app is minimsed and the next page they are claiming they never use GPS for measurements… 🤔
      Things that make you go hmmmm 🤔🤔🤔

      •  

        Location is not just determined by GPS but can also be found by trilateration from mobile towers and WiFi networks you're connected to.

        It's entirely possible to get your location not using GPS, using it just increases accuracy.

    Just tried it.. Works excellent (I compared it with my tape measure). Make sure you get the phone orientation right when measuring (landscape). It includes the dimensions of the phone itself into the equation and "should" automatically detect it etc. Otherwise add it in along with the case dimensions to be better accuracy.

    Has tutorials and training videos within to give you best accuracy.

    Jesus can't believe it's so precise! Much better than I expected! Just got one!

      Yep, I thought it was just another gimmick, but I have to admit, I am impressed and as an app, it is definitely a keeper. Good job.

    "goniometer"?

    Gonads per metre?

    What sorcery is this?
    I just installed, didn't have a tape measure handy but remembered I had some measurements in a spreadsheet on my phone. Took the measurements with this app - 160 & 163cm and then checked the spreadsheet - 1600 & 1627mm, freaky!

    If you only want linear measurements, then the measure app on iOS already does this

      ?? I just installed for free on my Android from Google Play Store

      Not sure if any different, but because I'm OzB'ing on my laptop, I didn't use link above, but rather searched for "Moasure" in my phone's PlayStore App.
