Measuring made easy.

Overview

Meander lets you measure routes, shapes, areas, anything that you can see on your screen. Simply draw your line with mouse clicks on a nearly-transparent window, set Meander's scale against a known distance, and read off the answer in the unit of your choice. A selection of units included, e.g., miles, kilometers, metres, feet, inches. Add any further units you like -- if you want to measure the world in nautical miles or even tea-trays, you can! Useful for engineers, architects, walkers, runners, cyclists, and no doubt many others too.

I love this app! I've been using it since it was called Metro and was still an alpha. I'm glad to see the app continued development and I plan on purchasing a license soon, as it is extraordinarily useful for online maps such as Google Maps & gulesider.no. It's so simple it's almost embarrassing that no one has made something like it before.

I just noticed that I was using an older version of Meander and wanted to download the most recent version, but was not able to do so. Instead I got a message that the account is on hold. Will this be resolved soon, or are any alternative download locations available?

I do hope Meander still is actively developed. There is an annoying bug (mentioned in the developer forum) that still is not fixed. The program crashes when one tries to add distance markers (using the latest OS and Meander versions on an intel mac).

Excellent product. Just what I've been looking for - I'm a regular walk leader and I frequently need to estimate distances for walks. No more fiddling with dividers or bits of string - Meander is just the job, and really easy and intuitive to use.

I've already rated this excellent application, so I won't this time. It's becoming excellent. My only major gripe at this point is that the Save dialog should be standard, i.e. allow me to save anywhere I want. I don't like to save documents in my Library, especially that I often use the Shared user's folder. Other minor points: 1- personal presets for the trace should be savable 2- presets should include the tracing window as well (in the same preset combo than the line) 3- when selecting a preset please keep the Preferences window on top.

Didn't know I needed this until I saw it. Very nice! Will come in handy on the hikes. Thank you.

Very clever, very well executed, brilliant. Suggestions for improvements: - Add a menu item to show the Scale window if it's been closed. - Remember the last scale unit used. - Let the user select the width and color of the trace, it's sometimes hard to see. - Allow deletion of the last segment - Allow a totally transparent Tracing window for taking better screenshots.

What a great idea. The developer found a common problem with online maps, and is creating a nice, simple solution to make it less so. Keep up the good work.
