Need some feedback for Andrometer on Droid

Hi All,
I'm one of the developers for the Andrometer app (2nd place misc. cat, ADC2). I've seen numerous comments that the app is crashing on Droid. Unfortunately I do not have a Droid (not available in my country) and this error only seems to happen on Droid.

Has anyone tried Andrometer with Droid and experienced this issue? If so, can you tell me at what point the crash happens? Any other details would be helpful.

Thanks,
HighwayNorth

@HighwayNorth,
I received some feedback on another forum yesterday that helped pinpoint the issue. I think I have a fix for the 'crash on Droid only issue', but again I won't know for sure until some Droid users give the app a try. If anyone has a few minutes to spare, please download Andrometer (free app) and give it a try.

Thanks,
HighwayNorth

@HighwayNorth,
The app allows you to estimate distances to objects or the height/width of objects you can see be using the camera, GPS, accelerometer and geomagnetic sensor.

Basically, you point at the object you want to measure (say a distant building) and the app records the direction you are pointing via the sensors and it also knows where you are standing based on the GPS. You then move to a new location and repeat. Once you have the second measurement, the app has all of the data it needs to figure out the distance from you to the object.

Great, I appreciate it. The app won't work well in a bunker... Smile

@HighwayNorth,
If only i could have this app 2 years ago. I wouldn't have to look through that damn scope reading 3 measurements on each position and moving around 2903857 times for surveying

@HighwayNorth,
As you have read on the other Forums, that App still Force Closes. I tried it, and once it wants to use the Camera it Force Closes. Good Luck, as I dont have a clue on how to fix it....lol

@BucYouUp68,
Quick update - we finally managed to fix the issue. It was tough without having a phone to try it on, but the latest fix did the trick.

Thanks,
Highway North team.

@HighwayNorth,
I do have your app on my Droid. To be honest, I've not used it yet, but as soon as I do, let will let you know how it works. I can tell you that, at least when I downloaded it and looked the app over, it did not crash. I will let you know more as I use it.

@HighwayNorth,
I was able to try out your app today. I'm happy to report there were no crashes on my Droid while using the software. The measurements however, were not correct. My "target" was a gate in my backyard. Approx. 30 feet from my patio where "a" pictures was taken. Moving to the left for "b" picture, as far as I could go in the confinement of my backyard (less than 20 meters), is the result of the incorrect measurement. I congratulate you on a your nice work. I do have some suggestions. Keep in mind these are suggestions and are in no way criticism. First would it be possible to have a toggle to switch from meters to feet. While most of the world does use the metric system, the USA does not. Perhaps showing the result as both feet and meters. Also, is there any way to reduce the distance for the camera shot "b". In an open field one can move in any direction 20 meters without issue. However, in confined areas such as city streets and the like, many times one cannot move 20 meters. Such was the instance in my case. I hope I was of some help. The good news, there was no crash, and I used the software to reconfirm the measurements twice.

@linmk2,
I just used it once, but no problems. Downloaded in the past week. Is there any way to get measurement in feet?
