That is a really cool app .... but I wonder what the measuring tolerances are ?

You can buy a laser distance measurer for about $60, good enough for putting wrapping paper on a box, or some similar iffy thing.

I paid $925 for mine, a Lietz Disto, which is good to plus-or-minus 1/16" at  300 feet.

It depends on what your accuracy needs really are.

Even so .... I would like to see the APPS results taken from 4 different angles and disparate distances, to see if the results are the same.
