Here you will learn about 5 free distance measurement apps to measure distance using Android camera. Using these apps, you can easily find the distance between you and any object just by pointing your Android phone camera. These apps actually ask you to enter the height of the phone and point the camera cross-hair to the bottom of the object. After that, they use trigonometry to automatically find the distance of the object. They will show you the distance in real-time. Some of these apps even allow you to find height of the object.

Do note that the results shown by these apps are not exact and are an approximation of the actual distance. So, to figure out which app is more precise, I have used them to check the distance of the same object. The results are pretty impressive and some of these apps even got the distance nearly accurate. To show you my experiment, I have created a simple table which will demonstrate the results generated by these apps when the phone is held at 1.5m high. The actual distance of the object is 2.7m.
