Flying Ruler is a tape measure, ruler, protractor and a goniometer (angle-measurer). It is four devices in one app, providing you with the quickest way to measure a distance or an angle.
The Flying Ruler app allows you to measure in the most original way: by just moving your device from one point to another.

The secret of the program is that it is based on the principles of the inertial navigational system (INS): the position of the device is determined with the help of the accelerometer and the gyroscope. You can not only measure an object but also the distance between two walls.


The app has different modes so you can choose which mode is better and easier to use on each occasion. You can measure with the body of the device in one mode or with a virtual ruler in another. You use the same methods to measure angles as the app allows you to measure angles both on a surface area and between surfaces through space.
Don’t forget to show your friends and colleagues how the app works – believe us, they will be impressed.


# Mean squared error – 2,06%
# Maximum inaccuracy noted in measurement – 4.8%
# Number of measurements where inaccuracy was within 1% – 34
# Number of measurements where inaccuracy was within 2% – 62
# Number of measurements where inaccuracy was within 3% – 90
# Number of measurements where inaccuracy was within 4% – 96

If measuring carefully, inaccuracy is rarely more than 4 %. You can always increase accuracy by making a series of measurements – the app automatically works out the average measurement. If you make a series of measurements, the degree of accuracy is usually to within 1 to 2 %. When measuring angles, the degree of accuracy is usually to within one degree.
The app also allows you to save a measurement by taking a photograph of the measurement and mark the place that was measured.


# If the telephone often loses connection then the phone will repeatedly try and restore connection and slow down the reception of data from sensors. To solve this problem, switch the telephone to airplane mode.
# If an app is on in the background eg Skype, then that will take up a certain amount of telephone’s processing power and slow down the reception of data from the sensors. Turn off any additional apps when you use Flying Ruler.
# Inaccurate measurements can be caused by sharp, jerky movements or conversely, if you move the phone very slowly then accuracy could decrease. Don’t keep the phone in your hand at the start and end of the measurement.
# Theoretically, certain tweaks from Cydia can decrease accuracy as they are using undocumented functions. In these cases, we cannot guarantee the accuracy mentioned above.

Quick Route offers four types of directions: Biking, Walking, Transit and Driving. So if you live in Portland and love to bike, Quick Route can get you there on your bull-horned fixie. Or maybe you need to hop on the subway in New York or the tube in London; Quick Route will let you know when and where you need to be to get on your way.

With an optional in app purchase, Quick Route will query Dark Sky and tell you how much it’s going to rain on each route so you can pick the one where you will get the least wet. Quick Route will also sort through all the available options to suggest the optimal time to leave to avoid as much rain as possible. This feature is only available in the U.S.

Quick Route is powered by the Google Places and directions API. So anything you can find on Google, you can get to with Quick Route. Google has years of experience mapping and searching for businesses. Quick Route leverages that experience so you don’t have to worry about ending up at the wrong place.

On iOS 6 devices, Quick Route will show you Apple’s map tiles. On iOS 5 it will show you Google’s. On all devices, it will use Google’s places and directions.

Quick Route has been designed to give you directions and get out of your way. Search for a destination, hit route and you’ll be on the road in no time. Directions automatically advance when you reach the end of the previous step. If you make a wrong turn, Quick Route indicates you should pull down on the title bar or directions panel to reroute.
