I thought I could use this app to physically walk out measurements, and it is WAY OFF. I am measuring the 50’x30’ rectangular tent at one of our seasonal retail locations. I just walked the perimeter, dropping a pin at each of the 12 support posts. This app made the rectangular tent look like a 12 point asymmetrical star or something. I needed to measure the tent to set up our tables and displays, starting at the tent and moving outward on the property. I guess I’ll have to go back to the old fashioned way we’ve done it for years and years. 😕 I rated it a 2 instead of a 1 because at least the app can be used to measure an area with a location address. This doesn’t help us since the tent is never placed in the same exact spot.
This is one of the best apps of its kind. The capability is incredible and allows for most of my needs. This includes things like having multiple shapes colors and more. On the down side, it would be nice if you had more options for showing notes and presenting measurements. Another major issue is the inability to export maps to another device or a sync feature so my maps would be current on all my devices. The only other thing I can think of is the maps offered in this program are not as current as some of the other apps I use. Not a big deal overall but worth mentioning.
The app is great. I thank you guy for it, and waiting for and up grade!
Great app for a Contractor.
I purchase to measure yard for landscape material. Then I realized if I had a location it works anywhere. I live in farm country so I can now see how many acres a particular farm field is.
This is the best app out there for measuring and and marking tracks of land. I use it to map out agricultural features, potential sites for housing and ponds, and for hunting purposes. It has the potential to be the best mapping/surveying app for iOS. If the app designers added options for parcel info and boundaries, as well as historical imagery, and soil maps, I would be willing to pay $50 or more. For this app. With that said, it’s current utility is well worth the money.
Helpful app. Wish it had the ability to tag items such as barns, deer stands and such. The new ability to move and delete pin locations is very nice.
My only other suggestion would be to make the maps shareable. Meaning if I create a map in the app I would like to share it with my team that also uses the same app. The map that I create needs to auto populate into there app so that they can see where they are at within the map that I create.
I have paid for 2 other apps and knew there were features I desired as we use this in a farming application. Being able to make multiple drawings, add flags for features, turn drawing features on and off, eg. Lengths, area is a big asset. Can make a duplicate of a drawing and adjust and still have original. There is no doubt this is worth the extra couple of dollars, you’ll never need another area/dimension app. Thanks for giving me something that was well thought out in advance.
This used to be a wonderful app. Now it’s a piece of useless software. Crashes every time I try it
I use Planimeter to help measure new fence lines, work out areas for paddocks to determine fertiliser amounts, and good for getting a rough measurement on building sizes. Also use when buying more land - great tool for checking physical acreage matches actual land title size.
Great software! Really accurate and does a good job. Seriously impressed with this app. Don't normally write reviews but this one is worth it.
Recommend if using to plan purchasing large parcel of land
Thanks Andrew , the update is even better than the first
I give it a solid 8/10. As a full time Agricultural Pilot I find this App near perfect! So many time I'v flown into a farm looking at the paddocks I will be spraying (or fertilise) and thinking to my self, Old farmer Joe has to be kidding me if he thinks that paddock is only 50 hectares? And so under his watchful eye, I run around the paddock with Planimeter and it confirms the paddock is 58.5 hectares? (In a 2D picture) So then old mate has a choice to make? I'm loving this App and it's newer features? I like the fact I can now have multiple paddocks marked out on the one page? I then can allocate different colours for different mixes for that client. I like how I can have multiple pages, and can name each one so each of our clients get their own map and it makes it easier to come back to every 10-14 days to do it all again and share with other people. Down Side... I would like to be able to put my maps in their own folders for each of our seasons work. So I can open a folder and view all my clients maps? State, type of work, clients. Folder A, has South Australia's 50 Potato/Carrot clients maps. Folder B, has Victoria's 50 Potato clients maps. Folder C, has Forestry paddocks done in NSW. Etc Etc. I would also like to be able to send each map to the printer and it print off the view I send. Anyway, all good so far... 😁👍🏼
I use this to measure areas for weed spraying and it is great. Also use it to measure fence lines.
Easy to use it could do with the option of marking out another area instead of been limited to just one and the option of measuring acres with meters/ha with feet.. We use it for paddock size for sowing spraying and also mapping out and planning of farm fencing and tree blocks lane ways etc good app would be better with those options happy with it so far 🚜🚜
I use the app to map out fence lines on property to work out fencing costs. I also use it to work out different options for fencing from the quiet of home. App works very well, good to have options of measurement when talking to different generations. Would like to be able to pan in/out of a saved map. Easy to use.
Planimeter is great I use it all the time and it saves a lot of time
Glad you included the google maps option! Great fix
Like the app but why won't it allow me to save appropriate name to a saved map only lets me save untitled maps
This app needs to be updated !!!!!
It's a must have if your construction. Great Tool
Really love the App but is it possible to do more than one measurement on one screen? It would be great and 5 star, if this was possible
Just took a measuring tape and made a square in the field. Then used the app to check the area. Clicked on the first corner then the mid point then the second corner continued the same process until completing the square. The result looked like two triangles smashed together and the area was no where close. Wish I could get my money back.
It's fine if all you need is a single distance or the area of a piece of land, but they didn't put much effort into it. You can't even name your saved projects.
Works well for outlining fields and sharing with equipment operators. Quick and easy to use
Irksome! The program lost 1 of my best plats (took me hrs of walking), and it crashes back to the background each time I open it on my 6s+. When it works, good.
Update: this app could have been unfortunately abandoned. It's a great app but the last update/upgrade was in 2014. It'd be nice if you could "cut out" sections within the area you have highlighted. I also would like an elevation graph between point A and point B!
I use this all the time to calculate acreage, on fields that I apply fertilizers and pesticides. It is always right on track with the fsa office.
Brilliant app and real easy to use
