  1. Was a waste of .99. It does not work. Unless my 5’6″ frame is now only 2’6″. Same goes for my son. Do not waste your money eh in this app like I did. Waste of time, and money.

    1. Hi Stephanie, sorry for your experience with the app.

      To prevent inaccuracies with the app, pls keep the device level flat (parallel to the ground) at all times, and don’t move it while measuring. A minor movement can cause the ambient air pressure to change and therefore reducing the inaccuracy of the app. This is because it is using the Barometer sensor of the phone which is very sensitive to minor changes in air pressure.

      You can also see the accuracy of your current measurement just below the result.
      In perfect conditions, you’ll get a maximum accuracy of 3 inches.

      Try measuring something stable, such as a table, as this makes sure the phone is parallel to the ground, and not moving, at all times. This will render extremely accurate results! ;)

      Hope this suggestion works!
