Geek Tip: Use Your iPhone As A Ruler


If you've got an iPhone, here's a nifty tip that will instantly put a ruler in your hand.

Billy Chasen has ingeniously created a digital ruler that will fit your whole iPhone screen so it looks like you have a real ruler. All you have to do is add it to your pictures and sync it onto your iPhone (although don't try to do it online as the dimensions will be off).

Now you have an iPhone that does everything and then some— including measure things!
