Duel model, til dem der skulle have to iPhone


he app works by clocking the time delay of the emitted sound waves. There are two different operation modes: a single device operation (with headphones) and a dual device mode for measuring the distance *between* two devices. Read below to find out which modes work on your iOS device.

Single device (headphone) mode:

This mode works on the iPhone 3GS (and newer), iPod touch 3rd Generation (and newer) and on all iPads. You either need one of those devices and headphones with a mic or headphones without a mic and a iOS device with a built-in mic (excluding the iPod touch 3rd Generation). The resolution in this mode is 1mm or 1/10 of an inch, depending on the unit system you have selected.

Dual device mode:

For this mode you need two compatible iOS devices. These are: iPhone 3GS (and newer), iPod touch 4th Generation and all iPads. One device has to be started as the master device, and the other as the reflector device. The measurement is started on the master device, by pressing the “Measure” button. The reflector device then sends back the chirp of the master which displays the measurement result. The resolution in this mode is 1cm or 1/2 of an inch.

When you first start the program, it will guide you through the easy calibration steps with text and illustrations explaining what to do. Please recalibrate when you are getting wrong measurements.

The app lets you set the air temperature as an additional calibration. This is important, because the speed of sound varies considerably with temperature, affecting the precision of the measurements.

You can switch between displaying the measurement in feet/inches and meters/centimeters. Accordingly, the air temperature will either be set in degrees fahrenheit or celsius.

Please note that while the resolution of the measurements may be as low as 1mm, the precision usually is not. While I have taken great care to make the app as reliable as possible, there are simply too many factors affecting the measurement process and the precision. That is why I want to be clear about one thing: there is absolutely no warranty that the measurements taken with Acoustic Ruler Pro are correct. Since the app works by sending and receiving sound, you’ll obviously get the best results when using it in an environment that is not too loud.

You can install Acoustic Ruler Pro by following this link.
