    what if there was an app that let you scroll through different onscreen rulers? it could display like a 4 inch ruler, then a 6 centimeter ruler, maybe some others. Ill give the pictures a try, but i think I may end up needing some help, and can someone point me to an app to display the rulers with that will hide the status bar? (just a little bit more room.)

    of course I estimated the numbers, ill get some good ones in a bit.

    that's a simple idea, I think you could pull this off with a simple image...
    as your wallpaper maybe. trick is to figure the dot-pitch of the ipod lcd and do a conversion

    I think that's a great idea! Of course all you need is pictures of rulers scaled to the screen resolution. Then use the photo app.

    I can also imagine a circle sizing template. The screen displays an array of different sized circles. Then the item you need to know the diameter of can be placed on the screen to compare.

    Anything you need a scale representation of can be created as a picture mapped to the resolution of the Touch' screen.
