Measure #QuickTip

How to Record Measurements on your iPad using the Measure App

14th September 2020

Jacob Woolcock


This week I’ll show you how to master the Measure app that comes as standard on iPad and iPhones, which will let you measure objects inn the real world using Augmented Reality.

By following this tutorial you’ll learn how to quickly and accurately measure length, height and area of objects as well as how to take a photo of each measurement so you can refer to them later. The Measure app, despite being very simple, has a huge potential in the classroom to enable your students to quickly measure anything they need to. Imagine working out the height of a tree using trigonometry, then confirming by using your iPad Measure app. Or estimating how far away an object is only to then use the iPad to check afterwards. It’s great!
