Smart Distance (v1.4) manual

Hello users. I'm Android Boy.

Smart Distance is a range-finder using camera perspective.  There are 11,000+ Android devices in the world, with different camera lenses and performance. Therefore it is not easy to measure the target's distance with camera view. I calibrated the app on 600+ major devices for 3 years.

 How to use
  1) To measure the distance from a target, input its height (width).
  2) Adjust the target to green lines by touching screen.
  By the way, do you know target's approximate height (width)?


 Target's height or width???
For accurate measurement, it is important to know the height (width) of a target exactly.
Don't worry. We can guess the height (width) of objects around us.

- Height
  man : 1.7m (5.6ft), golf flag : 2.1m (7ft), door : 2.0m (6.5-7.0ft)
- Width
  car : ~4.5m (Mini : 3.8m, sedan : 4.5m, SUV : 5.0m), bus : 10m (33ft)

We also can find target's specifications. For example, The Statue of Liberty = 93m (305ft), The Boeing 777 = 74m (243ft)


 Golf-rangefinder ???
This app can be a good tool for golf players because you know the height of golf flags.


※ Menu & Settings
①Distance by height / ②Distance by width


※ How to calibrate it
Is the distance inaccurate? You can calibrate it with [Height(Width) Calibration] at the settings. When height calibration is 36, it means that your camera view has 36 degress range vertically.


※ Pro version additional features:
 1) No ads
 2) Speed gun is integrated
