It takes a little bit of set up and a little tweaking, but MagicMeasure is actually a reasonable replacement for the humble tape measure. You’ll soon be able to measure all kinds of things reasonably quickly.
The initial set up is what might put you off a little. Calibration is easy enough, with simple steps guiding you through the paces. It’s that first time of measuring something where you find yourself paying a lot of attention to what’s being asked of you and it still not feeling entirely intuitive. Stick with it though. Once you figure it out, MagicMeasure works quite well.
You can use it to measure distances between two points, via a wall or floor, plus you can measure objects on a table or desk. Because of how it works, you can’t measure objects on ceilings, with MagicMeasure needing to know where the ground is but it’s still useful for so many things.
Extra functionality comes in the form of text annotation, PDF exportation, and being able to have multiple measurements at once (for a price). As a replacement to more traditional methods, MagicMeasure is worth that initial steep learning curve.
