I’m not talking about the measures of top models or Apple’s new iRefrigerator.
There is a universal app for inserting measures into images taken with the built-in camera of an iOS device.
It’s called MyMeasures by SIS Software (Slovenia) and it does the intended tasks pretty good. There is a free Lite and a Pro version available in Apple’s App Store.
The features …
The Pro version supports professional accessories e.g. from Leica Geosystems for measuring distances with the help of laser beams.
Additionally iCloud is supported so that projects are synced across all devices using the same Apple ID.
Via the iOS command ‘Open in’ projects can alternatively saved on well-known cloud storages like Box, iDriveSync, or GoogleDrive.
Usually a photo of an object or a drawing is taken with the camera.
A bubble level is displayed in both modes, portrait and landscape, to keep the camera in an exact horizontal or vertical position.
In Edit Mode measures are directly inserted into the photo by using a two-finger swipe gesture.
Arrows, angles, text, and sub-images (for example an image of a detail) be can be inserted and adjusted to reference points within the image.
There are 7 different arrow styles. Arrow with one end can be used to point out details or to link text with detail. With text you can choose between three types of bubbles and four colour variations. You can easily increase or decrease the size of the font in the bubble.
A further indispensable feature is note taking. Notes help to understand more complex objects or special properties of an object.
With the Tools option Sum, Square, and Volume can be calculated by using the inserted measures.
The app supports Metric, Imperial, Chinese, and Japanese units.
The system of imperial units or the imperial system (also known as British Imperial) is the system of units first defined in the British Weights and Measures Act of 1824.
You can choose different colors that are most visible in the photo. For example you can use one color to point out outer dimensions and use another color to point out inner object dimensions..
Multiple sharing …
The easy way to share multiple files or folders is just to tap on the Share button and select files and folders you wish to send. As a professional user you can send measured objects to main office within a few seconds. You can also send files as project so other users with My Measures and Dimensions Pro can edit the project.
Exact measuring …
With an accessory the iPhone can be connected to a laser for distance measurements.
The UI …
The UI (user interface) is plain and easy to understand.
If you tap on an arrow a magnifier is displayed which lets you exactly adjust the ends of an arrow to the object.

The support …
As usual I sent an E-Mail to SIS Software to test the support.
Is it user friendly? Did they reply within a narrow timeframe? Are the answers understandable? Does the support reply with pre-defined text modules or with a specific answer to your question?
I have no answers for you.
The company simply did not reply.
