    When I just need to get a rough measurement on my phone or iPad, I usually use the servicevines app. It's also a referral site, but I haven't gotten leads from them. I believe the guy behind it is a member here.

    Basic google earth has a measuring tool that is free.

    You take your measurements and then you do your math and you will have your SF.

    MeasureIt is the Service Vines app I believe, all are useful to give you general idea of square footage however the best bet it to go out and walk the property, sometimes things get hidden using the satellites
