Did you know there was an app that looked and acted just like iBooks when Apple’s reader was still a twinkle in Steve Jobs’ spectacled eye? If not, you should definitely check out Classics by Andrew Kaz and Phill Ryu and also see our review. Once you’re done you’ll be interested to know that one of the app’s developers, Mr Kaz, has launched a new app for iPad… but don’t get too excited just yet.

Ruler is, by the developer’s own admission, not to be considered a follow-up to Classics but merely an app that fills a gap on the iPad – quite literally.

Offering the same dedication to presentation as Classics, Ruler is said to offer the highest quality “digital wood” and allows users to measure in inches or centimeters with their iPad screen. Measurements larger than the iPad screen are still possible with a scrolling display and marker combination and you can even copy the current measurement so it can be pasted into an email or note.

For $0.99 it looks like it could be a useful tool if you’re short of measuring equipment but have your iPad with you. Ruler isn’t going to change the world but it could well come in handy.
