Discover the Hidden Features of Your Smartphone
HOUSTON – September 20, 2013 – Are you curious to know what’s going on “behind the scenes” with your smartphone? Maybe you think one of your phone’s sensors is missing or defective. Perhaps you want to compare the functions of the gyroscope and the accelerometer. With over 100,000 downloads, the free Sensor Kinetics app gives iOS and Android users the tools to make the most of the sensors in their phone or tablet.
“Like many techies, I am curious about what lies under the hood of my phone,” said Dr. David Y. Feinstein, the creator of Sensor Kinetics. “If you want to know about your Android phone’s gyroscope, or how sensitive your iPad’s magnetometer is, Sensor Kinetics is the app for you. It demonstrates the functionality of each sensor and logs the data gathered in real time, complete with vivid charts.”
With Sensor Kinetics you can quickly test and monitor each of the sensors on your smartphone simultaneously. The details of each sensor are listed, including measurement, data rate and other capabilities. Displayed with each sensor is a chart of the raw data and where applicable, raw data may be automatically converted to rotation angles.
Sensor Kinetics is the perfect tool for physics classes. Students can readily observe the subtle differences between linear acceleration and gravity, use Sensor Kinetics to experiment with magnetic fields, rotation detection with gyroscopes, and sensing vibrations with the accelerometer.
Invaluable for mobile app developers and engineers, Sensor Kinetics Pro ($0.99) is also now available. It includes all of the features of Sensor Kinetics, plus it allows the user to apply filters to the data stream and save the sensor data and export it via e-mail to open in a spreadsheet.
