Why do you need an Area Calculator

Since launch in 2008 feedback from users has been the most influential factor in SketchAndCalc’s development. An area calculator with surprisingly endless uses from a wide variety of industries sometimes makes it difficult for me, the developer, to prioritize which features offer the greatest return for most users.

Unusual uses of an Area Calculator

I’ve been contacted by users all over the world who are using SketchAndCalc™ in ways I couldn’t have imagined. Some of the more unusual uses have been:

A group of Australian hospitals performed a medical study to compare skin ulcer healing rates, and arrive at the optimal treatment strategy.

An electronics engineer needed to calculate the area of silicon in nanometers.

A spinal surgeon needed to compare the length of the posterior longitudinal ligament when in flexion, neutral, and extension positions.

A research scientist needed to find the area of multiple foci (cells) in an image to determine their total volume.

Feedback

Feedback from users has helped me choose which features to build, as well as inspire me when things go wrong. Here’s one that stood out:

Hi Elliott

…THANK YOU sir

The efficiency of this app has literally placed me ahead of my competitors.

To date, I have been completely accurate and have cut my costs on orders!

As mentioned I personally use your app EVERYDAY and recommend it within my sales and construction divisions.

Please pass our correspondence onto everyone involve. And a huge thank you for the awesome app

Regards

  302. To do paver installs we often have irregular and curved areas to contend with. In order to give the customer an accurate and timely quote it’s important to get the square footage correct the first time. Sketchandcalc seems to be the only product that I can use to get me the results I need, quickly. The customers are also more confident seeing the product in use vs. me doing complex math and scribbling on some paper. I looked around quite a bit and tried several apps, but honestly, none of them can do what Sketchandcalc can do. Thank you.
