After pressing the height button, measure your friend’s height.
If it is not accurate, please read the instructions and see checklist diagram in my blog. You can calibrate this app with calibrate menu for yourself.

Specialty apps use your phone’s camera to sense motion, and then alert you via email or text. Apple users will want to download the Manything app. Android users can grab the Salient Eye app.
