iMeasureDist uses the phone's camera and accelerometer to measure the distance and the height of an object based on trigonometry.

The application main feature is simplicity… Once the application is started, a free running meter is displayed that measures the distance between you (your iPhone's camera) and the object you are pointing to. You can also measure the height of this object. Without leaving your place you can measure the distance from a building, its height, the height of your daughter/son, etc. it is a cool tool that your iPhone should have!

○ Simple measure of the distance from an object with just pointing the cross on the screen to the BASE of this object
○ Measure also the height of this object by moving from its base to its vertex
○ You can add height offset from the base of the object you are measuring its distance and height. For example, measuring the distance from a building and its height while you are setting in the next floor of another building.
○ For more accurate measures, you can calibrate the system by standing with your mobile @ 1.5m from the ground and pointing toward any object at distance 1 m
