Measuring roads, buildings or lands from the bird's eye view is the main mission of the “Measure Your land” app. It’s as easy to use as any other best iPhone or iPad apps. Just find an object on the map, select “line“ or “area“ tool and tap along the outline of the object. “Measure Your Land” will show the corresponding distance or area.

It's hard to compare with other app's because their developers don't report calculations model they use.
We at Ribaba's team, use international WGS-84 standard model in the "Measure Your Land" app to consider Earth's surface curvature. That's why even very long distances are measured quite close to standard survey values.
Of course the precision of your measure depends on how accurate you put nodes of a measurement shape on the map with your finger. After tapping over the outline of an object on the map a measurement shape will appear. Use pinch gesture to zoom map. And try to move nodes of your measurement figure exactly over object's outline on the map. You can do so how it shown on the attached picture.
