Reviews from the free campaign version of the app:
Super, Simple, Service! - ★★★★★

This is a great app - just super. It's easy to calculate distance, and this app does it very nicely. Instructions are simple, and so easy to use. For the guy who couldn't measure a desk, remember to calibrate the height from the desk (not the floor) to the iPhone. The app is designed to calculate with the bottom leg of the triangle level! As for support, I sent and email and got a great response - just two hours later. Impressive!!

Set your height from your camera height & measure @ ground level with the dot.
Decent Application - ★★★★

App is almost 100% accurate. Pretty neat to use. Becomes a little less accurate over greater distance, but generally pretty good!
Top! - ★★★★★

Die app funktioniert super - vorausgesetzt man kalibriert es richtig! Weiter so!!
Unerwartet gut - ★★★★

Mit Skepsis hab ich es geladen, kostet ja nix. Und ich war sehr überrascht wie gut die Genauigkeit ist. Anhand eines Gliedermaßstabs habe ich die Ergebnisse kontrolliert und kam bei fast allen Messungen auf nur 1-2 cm Abweichung! Respekt! Man muss zuvor natürlich die richtige Höhe einstellen in der man das Telefon hält. Auch zu nahe Objekte / Wände werden nicht korrekt berechnet! An sich aber eine gute Richtlinie!!
Plutôt pas mal - ★★★★

Application très utile. Ne se trompe pas de beaucoup. Je recommande.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR FEEDBACK!
(An updated version is under development with new features).
Dot Measure is measuring the distance.
It measure the distance from your feet to a red spot on the floor, which you see in a camera view on your phone.
US customers: Thanks for your feedback; Now Dot Measure has support for yards, feets and inches in addition to the existing metric units.
Have calibrated the accuracy. This is as good as it gets!
Enjoy measuring! :-)
=== User feedback comments:
Thank you all for your review comments, I really appreciate it!
The app mostly receives 5 and 4 stars reviews.
But also I get some 1 star reviews.
Their comments show that they are pointing the dot directly at the object and are receiving un-expected measures.
Remember: you must point the red dot to a point on the FLOOR LEVEL. If you want to measure the distance to a wall: point the dot to where the wall meets the floor.
I am sorry if this was unclear. I will try to give better instructions in the next version of the app.
