The utilities within the Play Store are many, so much so that the possibilities are almost endless wanting to find a tool for a specific task. Developing them always takes time and some make use of different sensors, especially to offer more exact precision.
If you need to measure a distance at home, that of a terrain or another measure, there are applications that will give you the accuracy as if it were a precision meter, either by centimeters or by meters. Many of them are quite simple to use, either in the native language or in English.
Applications to measure distances sometimes need GPS, at least one of them will need this feature and Google Maps. Others make use of the camera and motion sensors, all this to make an exact calculation of a measure, either the width or the areas.

AndMeasure offers data and information on surfaces and distance in terrainDespite not providing too much information, the measure is quite accurate when it comes to specifying it. The positive is that the measurements are made in many formats, it is considered one of the most universal available.
The use of the application goes through the placement of the markers on the map, obtaining both the surface and the distance of an exact route. The use may be both private and professional., many do it in agriculture, both in fields and in forests.
You can use the app to measure off-road routes, plot career courses, trips in the sea, estimating the range at the shooting range, driving or even playing golf. It is used to calculate the distance between various points, so if you want to go from one side to the other you will know the distance in meters and kilometers.
Rangefinder: Smart Measure
It is a fairly complete application to measure distanceIt is different by not using either the GPS or the Google Maps tool. It makes use of the rear camera and the movement sensors of the phone, obtaining the approximate distance from one point to another point.
You can measure a room, the living room or anything else you can think of at home, it also measures outdoor things, whether it is space with or without things in between. If you want to measure from point one to two, just aim at the end, it will take just a few seconds to accurately give you the meters.
It is necessary to calibrate the device if the exact measurement is desiredOtherwise, the measurements may be less natural, is what the creator of the application says. As if that were not enough, it has a Pro version with many important things, for example it does not have ads on the screen.
It is one of the most powerful applications for measurement, To this he adds the ease of doing it with just a mobile device, all by simply pointing from one position to another. It is an app to measure length and diameter, it converts the unit from mm to inches, from centimeters to inches.
The electronic ruler has a great precision to measure, the design has been quite careful, the measurement is done in four different modes: point, line, plane and level. The screen can be kept active once it is used And the best thing is that it is a free tool, without advertising.
Rule (Ruler) has been translated into 15 languages, among which is Spanish, fully translated for much easier use and has the functional options than previously. More than 10 million downloads support it, it weighs just 4,5 megabytes and works on Android 4.2 or higher versions.
Measure and Align - 3D Plummet
It is one of the complex apps, but knowing how to use it can greatly benefit you when it comes to measuring and aligning, for this you use the plumb line. The utility of measurement is through distances, volumes, sizes and proportions, all this will be carried out with the same tool.
Works with the phone's camera sensorAll you have to do is point to the object you want to measure, showing you the verticality, as well as all the data captured at the time. Although it seems complex, if it is used on different occasions you will gain experience, but the main thing is to use the starter manual.
Measure the height and width, measure the distance of two objects, vertical or horizontal surfaces, it also measures cylindrical and cubic volumes. Measure and Align - 3D Plummet weighs around 6 megabytes approximately, is around one million downloads and was updated in October 2020.
Google launched an application for measurement, it works like a tape measure, it works both at home and at work, pointing the camera will tell you the exact distance. Measure the length and also the height of objects on smooth surfaces, a plant, a rug, the width of the sofa, the height of a table or a chair.
In addition, Measurement takes a photo with the size of the height and width, the good thing is to be able to share it, but it can be saved if you need to buy a tablecloth for the table or a cover for the chair. Measurement is usually much better if it is smooth surfaces, so it tries to maintain accuracy.
Measurements are approximate, accuracy will depend on pulse how you use the camera, so it is convenient to do it well. It has been updated on February 6 of this year, it weighs just under 10 megabytes and the application has had 5 million downloads.
Map Distance Calculator
It is perfect for measuring distances, especially when going to point from another point, all without the need to use other applications. You can limit an area, save it once it has been defined, especially so that it does not repeat itself if you decide to do it again.
The person can place points on the map and measure the distance between them easily, the second can measure a path between the tool points. The user on the map will place a pencil, then press and then activate the drawing to finish.
The user will be able to test the following features: 3D Maps, measure roads by pointing on the map, measure continuous roads with the pen, take the perimeter measurement, measure the circumference measurement, and allow the user to adjust the viewing angle of the map. It weighs 4,2 megabytes approximately, while it has been downloaded by 1 million people.
Use augmented reality to use the measurements, among the functions it incorporates the measurement of straight surfaces with a virtual ruler. It also measures areas, perimeters and different geometric shapes, being one of the best when it comes to working with it.
Prime Ruler makes use of augmented reality (AR) For real-world measurement, all you need to do is use the camera, aim at the horizontally detected target, and start measuring. Measurements are made online, in angle, area, perimeter, volume, height, and other positions.
It will serve us in any situation, so measuring goes through installing it, make use of the camera and it will give you exactly that distance. Prime Ruler is a free application, quite functional and to top it off it has been receiving different awards for its good performance.
It does not focus only on measurement, it has 24 tools that make it a free all-in-one and indispensable for almost everything. When it comes to measuring it is very accurate, so much so that it uses the camera and its sensors to calculate the distance from one side to the other.
In the Tool Box toolbox come the following: Compass, Leveler, Length Measurement Tool, Protractor, Vibometer, Magnetic Field Detector, Altimeter, Tracker, Heart Rate Monitor, Decibel Meter and many more functions.
Tool Box is an application that has managed to be important in those cases that it was used, many of the uses have been in the field, at home and other surfaces. It weighs around 13 megabytes and has been downloaded by a million people since it was launched in the Play Store.
AR Plan 3D Ruler
AR Plan 3D Ruler measurement is small to medium at any angle, either in line, height or in another of the different positions. It is ideal for engineers and architects, but also for use by anyone who download it from the Play Store.
AR Plan 3D Ruler generates a plan of the house with the annotations on the measures, which will make you stand out from the rest, all in 3D. Ideal even for companies that sell homes, since you can generate a plan of the house in little more than a few minutes.
The application has a tape measure, measures the height of rooms and living rooms, calculates the perimeter, the square of the floor, stores all the old and new measurements automatically. The app weighs about 25 megabytes, is free for all users and reaches one million downloads.
