The app is especially suitable for architects, painters, floorers and electricians, all other tradespeople can also benefit from its comprehensive functionality. Bosch MeasureOn enables you to increase the productivity and efficiency of your day-to-day work. Main functions: - Picture mode: Measured values can be transferred directly to pictures - Measurement List: Measured values are stored in one list and can later be organized - Quick Sketch: Quickly create simplified sketches that can later be adopted into detailed floor plans - Detailed Plans: Floor plan creation including wall view, room height, roof slope and area calculation - Wall View: Document wall dimensions including roof slope, room height and objects - Area calculation - Notes, to-do’s and audio memos The app can be used in combination with the GLM400C Professional, GLM 100 C Professional and GLM 50 C Professional laser measures. Bosch MeasureOn combines all the functions of the previous GLM measure&document and GLM floor plan apps, enabling you to document your measured values all in one place.
One of the biggest deficiencies with this app is that once you enter a measurement, you would expect it to snap the wall to that length. It doesn’t. That may sound like a small problem, but without that feature, it is actually easier and faster to create your drawing with pencil and paper. I am not exaggerating. Also, you can turn on a background grid, but there is no discernible relationship between the grid and the measurements. Kind of a head-scratcher there. When you go to export your plans, your only choice is a pdf, one of the least usable document formats known to man. Again, this wouldn’t even be that big of a deal if the app didn’t insist on exporting all the wall views to the pdf. Because of the proprietary document format, you can’t edit the document to get rid of the spurious detail unless you have the full pdf suite from adobe on a desktop machine. It doesn’t look like editing PDFs on an iPad is something that can be done at any cost. I sure hope Bosch gets serious about completing development on this app. Even if meant paying for the app (*no* subscription, don’t even think about it) it would be worth it. As it is, the Bluetooth capability of their laser measuring device is pretty much window dressing. Honestly, I feel kind of scammed by the videos used to sell the laser tool, because having this free app work the way it’s supposed to is at least half the value of the tool and it does not work as advertised.
I recently purchased a GL-50-CX and I love the tool. The app however has a lot of issues. When I change the measurement on the walls it doesn’t change the scale in the drawing. Also I’ve been doing basic experiments drawing individual walls and then connecting them together the outer walls are not changing dimension value based on the wall thickness. For example: I connect to 20 foot walls perpendicular to one another and connect them at their corners with a 6 inch thick wall. The inner dimensions are 20‘ x 20‘. That means the outside dimensions should be 20’6” x 20’6”. But it doesn’t. The outer wall still shows 20’x 20’ the same as the inner wall and the problems only get worse from there. There should be options when saving as a PDF of how old the vector lines are created or broken apart. Especially when creating a floor plan. Perhaps it should be exported as a .CDR (Corel draw), .AI (Adobe illustrator), .EPS (Encapsulated PostScript), etc...Can you please help me? I’ve already sent an email and awaiting your response.
*****Updated**** The most recent updates to both MeasureOn and measure&document have allowed me to import all data from the old program to the new MeasureOn program. Having used the new program several times, it is a major improvement over what was a good program. Thanks again for all the hard work! Thanks guys. I thought lost every measure and document file I had. Hundreds of hours and thousands of miles involved. You rescued them all, and they are now still accessible in the old program. I was only able to import one of my measure and document files to the MeasureOn program. The new program looks great, and I will be trying it next week on a site survey. Please do not drop support of measure&document before you have this last little bug worked out. Thank you.
I used this App with my GLM50C for about a half hour before determining it is nearly useless. It’s nice to be able to quickly draw simple floor plans but getting accurate measurements for each of the walls is incredibly tedious. You should be able to simply tap on a wall to highlight it, take the measurement and have the dimension update to the App but, no. Instead, you need to run through a separate menu and choose from a list of uploaded measurements the laser has taken. Wall thickness is completely useless, it defaults to 1’ and wants you to use decimals for inches? CRAZY. I looked into other Apps which might work better such as Room Scan however, they recommend using a competitive brand Laser, I can connect my GLM to this App but nothing works. Really hoping I can find something which is fully integrated with this Laser, one would think a Bosch App would be great, no such luck. Majorly disappointing.
This app is good for basic measurements, but if you plan to use it in any way for ‘As-Built’ drawings try something else. When you measure a wall it will not snap to a scalable length on the drawing. However, it just gives you a measurement in brackets and a pop up that tells you the scale is incorrect. If you plan on laying out a room or building, the laser measure tool is great, but you’re better off writing those measurements down and putting them in AutoCad for a drawing. One great feature of this app is the availability to take pictures and place measurements overlaid on them. This is invaluable for sending details to suppliers and subcontractors. I give the app 2 stars because it is somewhat useful in its layout functions, but there are a lot of problems with how it calculates and scales wall lengths. In the meantime try something else until Bosch figures out what’s wrong with the app.
