If you’ve ever had a need to map out your room layout, you’ll know it can be a bit of a pain to do. All that measuring tape stuff and moving furniture and getting the windows right. It can take forever to do. But of course that was before smartphones, because now there’s a different way to get it done.

RoomScan is a very clever little iPhone app which lets you scan a room in less time than it takes to say ‘bay window’. Just fire up the app, and do what it says… which is to hold it up against a wall for a few seconds.

Rinse and repeat the process around the room, making sure to include window wells and other geometric shapes. At the end of the process, you’ll get a rather cool looking readout of the layout, which appears to be pretty accurate.

The basic app is free, but if you cough up £2.99 / $4.99 for the Pro version you’ll be able to add doors to the equation as well as wall measurements. As you can see from the video below, it takes around 8 minutes to scan and grab the measurements for a seven room floor. Pretty impressive.
