Hanover, Germany – Apps4Cams has released KidsMeasure 1.0 to iPad users. With KidsMeasure, growing up becomes a bonding experience for parents and children. The app rewards children for growing up with cute animal trophies when they reach certain development milestones. For each child, a different animal theme as well as an individual display frame can be selected. Parents can easily measure and track their child’s growth over time and compare it to official charts of the World Health Organization. KidsMeasure contains reference charts on height and weight development as well as on the body mass index.

Measuring body height with KidsMeasure is almost as simple as taking a picture. The app uses a sheet of plain paper hung up next to the child’s head as a reference item and employs sophisticated computer vision techniques to automatically compute body height from head to toe. The sheet of paper is also used as a virtual picture frame to display the animal trophies.

Each measurement can be shared easily with friends and grand parents via major social networks and standard messaging services. With iCloud integration, all data is safely stored and can be taken from one device to the next.
