Apple updated the operating system on iPhones on Monday, and the update included a new app called Measure and it is the coolest thing ever! Say "bye bye" to the tape measurer, all you need now is your iPhone. It's a simple concept: you aim your camera at an object, let's say a wall or television, and the app uses some kind of technology beyond my understanding to estimate how long it is. It even has a "Level" feature on the app as well. This will help making hanging those picture frames on the wall that much easier!

I updated my phone to the latest iOS system last night and just noticed the app this morning. Needless to day, I have been distracted at work messing with the Measure app all day. Check out how the new app works:
