Partometer is made to replace the traditional ruler, measuring tape, and protractor. "Brilliant idea for a measuring tool. Simple and way more accurate than any other app's method ...", recent user comment about this app on Android Market . Partometer uses a reference object for measurements and, as a result, can achieve very good precision (up to mm). In addition to camera view measurements, this app has a feature to load pictures from the phone gallery to make measurements in photos. Partometer measures width, length, angles, areas and also length ratios. Partometer is useful in situations where the ruler is difficult or impossible to use. The integrated zoom allows users to bound objects very accurate. A list of commonly used reference objects is also included in the application. Using Custom option users can define their own reference object used in measurements, it extends the measurement range of this application.
