Sonar Ruler App Description

Sonar Ruler is a winner in the Best App Ever Awards - "Most innovative use of iPhone hardware" category! The Amazing New Sonar Ruler is an experimental app that uses echoes to measure distances with your iPhone! * It uses the same principles that dolphins use to find food! * It sends a short pulse from the speaker and measures how long that pulse takes to bounce off of something and return to the phone. It then estimates how far away you are. >> Impress your friends with what this unique app can accomplish using only an iphone! << Ϟ GIZMODO.com: "that's a damned neat trick for a phone to be able to do."

  • Very accurate

    Down to the decimal accuracy. Just point it at a wall and get the distance. Once it is calibrated right it is very accurate!
  • Crash within 3 seconds

    Tried uninstalling and reinstalling on my iPhone 6 several times but the program exits after 3 seconds every time. Would have been interested to "experiment".

    Used to work great, but it no longer works on the newer iPhones running iOS 8.4. It runs and seems to be listening, but it no longer makes the chirps it needs to listen for. None of the adjustments seem to make a difference. I tried setting back to default values. Tried removing and reinstalling. Tried rebooting the iPhone.
  • Broken!

    Used to work fine, now no chirping sound is emitted at all on an iPhone 5S. Help video URL is broken. Any one else gotten it to work recently?
