PocketMeter is on sale - for just $0.99!

PocketMeter is specifically designed for your iPhone 3G and 3GS. It will not work on the first generation iPhone (as the microphone is not sensitive enough).

"PocketMeter was able to measure the distance of the room within .5 inches of the actual distance. Not too shabby."

- Tyler Tschida, appleiphoneapps.com

PocketMeter allows you to measure distances. It emits sound and measures the time it takes for the echo to return. Just point it towards a wall or floor, touch the screen and it will show you the distance.

Use it for quick measurements when you do not have a tape measure or ruler in your pocket, for example to measure the height of a ceiling or the size of a room.


- Measure distances from approx. 8 inches (20 cm) up to 13 feet (4 m).

- Achieved accuracy can be less than 0.4 inches (1 cm).

- Distance can be shown in several metric or imperial unit formats.

- Uses the same technologies usually found in active sonar or radar systems.

Like any technology interacting with the real world surrounding us (speech recognition, GPS, ...), there are cases, where it might not work 100% satisfying. We are constantly trying to improve PocketMeter and already have some nice enhancements in the pipeline.

To see PocketMeter in action, visit our Web site at www.pocketmeter.ch

What's New in Version 1.1.0

- Added a new "Radar View", which will display all found echoes and their relative strength. This helps in situations where many echoes are returned (e.g. small rooms)
- Improved filtering algorithms.

Total waste

This app only seems to work even remotely close to what is advertised indoors against a perfectly flat surface. Forget trying to measure the distance from the garage to the shed, especially if there happens to be a shrub or blade or two of grass in between. I have tried every setting with the same results. Glad I only paid 99 cents for it.

very disappointed, it just doesnt work, instead of 0.5m it shows 4,5m, scale is jumpin all over the screen. don't waste your money for this app. there are 1000's of apps much better for .99$
