[prMac.com] Hanover, Germany - Apps4Cams today is pleased to announce that their first app, CaMeasure, is now available exclusively for iPhone / iPod touch. CaMeasure uses the iPhone camera to make highly accurate size measurements of arbitrary objects at the ease of a few touches.
"Unlike other apps of its kind, CaMeasure unites three key virtues of iPhone Applications." said Dr. Andreas Haja, founder of Apps4Cams. "It is highly useful in everyday life, has a beautiful design with rich animation and is simply fun to use!"
CaMeasure comes with two operating modes: (1) For high-accuracy measurements of small to medium-sized objects (e.g. furniture), the user is asked to place an item of known dimensions (credit card, CD-case, A4-paper) next to the object he wants to measure. After taking a picture of both item and object, the user marks the item position in the image. (2) For size estimates of large and far-away objects (e.g. buildings), a 'virtual' item (bobby car, scooter, bus) is superimposed on the taken photo. The user scales this item into relation to the object he wants to measure. Both intuitive modes serve the purpose of providing important input to the CaMeasure size estimation formulas. After finishing with either mode, a photorealistic & animated ruler is used to measure the object of choice with a few simple touches.
