Measure app on iPad

iOS and iPadOS

This app should be compatible with the iPad mini 4. Its on my iPhone. On the iPad though, the re-download button is dimmed. Any ideas why I cannot install the app?

The Apple utility called Measure uses AR features that wouldn't be available with either the camera or processor of the iPad mini four. if you are talking about the Draw2Measure Protractor from APH, then yes, it should install just fine. I have it installed on my iPad mini 4.
