First you have to download the free app to your phone. This requires creating an account but that is simple. You can have a case one your phone and still use the tool as long as you have access to the headphone jack. It's as simple as snapping your phone in the holder, aiming the laser and pressing measure. The output can be distance or area depending on what you need. I have found the measurements to be accurate. It's a very useful tool and I think the price point is fair.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnC JUNK, reconditioned unit was dead on arrival
I charged the battery twice, but unit would not turn on. The charger indicated full charge on the battery. The "operation manual" did not include all of the instructions needed for operation. All of the pictures that the instructions reference were not there. I downloaded the manual from Ryobi's website - but it was a waste of time because I could not get the unit to turn on. Also the battery compartment is a poor design, causing the rechargeable battery to be difficult to remove and replace. And the battery door is flimsy and difficult to put back on after insertion of the battery. The only good point is my home depot store refunded my money immediately even though I purchased on their website. However, I'm not sure I ever want to order a "refurbished" item again from ryobi or home depot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by farfields First one is DOA
Not much to say. Unit failed to power up after following all the good advice posted by other reviewers here and the enclosed paperwork. No "manual" per se. Gotta download the real version online. Yes, the battery cover is tricky, but it's doable. Double checked the charge and the battery position. All OK. It's just a brick. Big disappointment. Returning it tomorrow. Might try ordering another one, since I really want this model...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheOriginalMrGadget Very accurate measuring
I have been using this for a few years now and I am more than satisfied with it and for the price even at full price it is the best I have seen compared to the ones that are 4-6 hundred dollars that are no more accurate than this one so I do recommend it (Now this is only my opinion but its my opinion that counts for me.) Hey Home Depot has a good return policy so what you got to lose give it a try ...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tbird excellent
does exactly what I want it to do. As far as measuring distance, and making it easy with a lot of differant options as far as square feet, cubed feet ect. It is one of the best, I am satisfied and I haven't even used any other model. Not to mention it is rechargable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer I trust this tool, buy it
This measuring tool gets the job done well and quickly. I especially like the recent measurements log, goes back a couple measurements. Fun area tools, not used much but seemed to work. I used this to create a full 100,000sf commercial floor plan, from basically scratch.
