It has happened to everyone. You are looking at a table, cabinet, rug or desk and need to know if it is long enough to fit in a given space.
So off to the garage to get the tape measure and back to the room where you are trying to measure.
Well, that may be a thing of the past with Google’s new Measure app that helps with quick, everyday measurements around the house or office that is as easy as grabbing your smartphone.
The app allows you to measure the length and height of objects in the real world with an augmented reality program. Move a smartphone around the space to find flat surfaces of objects and then drag the length tool or height tool into the scene and adjust it to the right size. Tap the camera icon to snap a photo for later or tap the trash icon to start a new measurement.
The app is available now and you can download it by going to Google Play.
