What is AccelaRuler?
Unlike other measuring applications on the iPod Touch** and iPhone**, AccelaRuler is not just a tiny picture of an even tinier ruler.  AccelaRuler measures real things in the real world using sophisticated processing and your built-in accelerometer to estimate distances.
AccelaRuler can be used to measure distances ranging from a couple of inches to 15 feet or more.  Measurement accuracy is up to 2% of the actual distance, and AccelaRuler will estimate any error range for you.

I’m a contractor building a house.  Should I throw away my tape measure and just use AccelaRuler?
Mmmm...no.  But you could certainly use AccelaRuler as a convenient way to get length and measurement estimates of any number of things around the job site.

* Note that AccelaRuler is design to estimate distances while sliding on flat surfaces.  It will not work well carried in your hand.
