Planimeter - Measure Land Area & Distance on a Map App Reviews

63 add

Good but could be better

As a distance and area mapping tool its fine, it allows you to zoom far into the maps (google and apple) and toggle switch between them. Sadly there is little export features (image, PDF reports, google earth or similar text files of coordinates).

Auto-drop pins

Should drop pins automatically in variable intervals as one moves around


It s one of my favorite tools in planing perimeter protection.


Downloaded but it wouldnt even start


This app seems to work better than the pricy manual instruments we have around the college. Keep at it!

Works Great

Works as advertised. Very handy!

Crappy app

I cant believe the reviews. No way could someone have used this app to measure the area of their house or the dimensions of their lot. The app cant accurately measure a length under 40 feet!! Works ok for longer distances such as measuring the length of a city block or greater .

Great app for measuring locations on the run

Use this app all the time to measure out the square footage of properties for landscaping job. It has been great and has made my work so much easier.

Aerial videographer

Very precise and useful. It is not a toy or a game...its a tool.

Very disappointing

Its fine if all you need is a single distance or the area of a piece of land, but they didnt put much effort into it. You cant even name your saved projects.

Dont waste your money

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.

Love it!

Easy to use. Now if you could do circles (tanks) Id be even happier.

Great app but could use a change

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

Great App

Its a must have if your construction. Great Tool

Real improvement

This was already a really useful app but the improved map features and clarity make it much more useful congratulations on utilizing OS 6 so well. I have been using it for over two years and the ability to switch between metrics is very helpful working with my European counterparts. Have tried other Similar apps but this is by far the best. Also excellent support and the developer is very open to new ideas.


This is an awesome app. Im a map junkie, earth, space, wherever, and pilot. Great for laying out crop fields, boundaries, hunting and shooting etc. Might suggest a stop drawing feature to allow for irregular land area measurements.

Not that user friendly

I purchased this app to measure land in acres. The problem is when I drop a pin and need to reposition it, I have to put my finger over the pin in just the right place. My finger then covers the point of the pin that I am trying to place in the exact area I need. I cant see where it is being placed. This app is useless to me and I would like my money back.

Gokivo GPS

This app good.Very useful measurement....

Great App!!

This is a very useful app for the money. Im a farmer and comes in real handy!

Cannot map distances for running and bike ride

Useless app unless you are running in a straight line! I wish the description of the app was more accurate, therefore I would not have purchased.
