    Hello Everyone,

    We'd like to announce the release of our new application - "Easy Measure".

    Ever wanted to measure a small length - lets say the length of your table, and did not have a measuring tape handy ? Easy measure is an application which does the job for you.

    How does it work ?

    - When you open the application for the first time, click on Menu, Settings, and choose your phone from the drop down, or let Auto Detect find your phone. If your phone is not present in the list, choose custom and enter your phone dimensions in millimeters.
    - Once that is done, come back to the main application screen, place your phone on the object you want to measure, click on start and start flipping your phone over till you reach from one end of the table (or whatever object you're measuring) to the other. To stop, either click on the Stop button on the screen, or press the Volume button.

    The video below shows how the application works:


    -Fairly accurate as compared to other measuring applications.
    -Easy to use
    -Gives measurements in both inches and centimeters

    Known Issues
    -For some people the application shows zero measurement the first time it is used. This is because of a bug in the Android Accelerometer API, and the app works perfectly second time onwards.

    Here is a screenshot of the application -



    Please let us know what you think, and also about any issues/suggestions.
