Measure everything that vibrates, shakes or moves. Or why not an actual earthquake?

Seismometer uses your iPhone's built in accelerometer to measure movements in two axes, calculate the resulting energy and draw the results on a rolling logarithmic scale.


* Different signal filters
* Highly configurable
* Recordings
* CSV exporting of recordings
* UDP Streaming

Very Cool - Even cooler when there are actual stats


Someone asked for a use-case - ie why would I want this app? Night photography: How still really is your camera for a long exposure shot? Take a measure, adjust as needed.

This is a great app and fun. Would love see some stats that can viewed and saved for later comparison. The Roller Coaster Physics app is along the lines of this app, and now allows you to email a full run of the measurements for later loading into Excel or other app. Looking forward to a new version

Very poor implementation.


I know there are only two other reviews that give high praise, but one must be from the developer. This seismometer only displays one axis at a time…. a bit useless if you a trying to record all 3 or even just two for that matter. The streaming feature SEEMS to work well…. except it only displays the Z axis even if you select the Y or X axis. It will ONLY stream the Z axis. Since earthquakes and other shaking rarely occur on a single axis, and most are rarely on the Z axis (up/down), this is completely useless.

Allow displaying/recording of multiple axis, and allow the stream to display ANY other axis besides the Z axis, and it will be a GREAT app.

Developer Response

The streaming feature does stream all 3 axis, maybe you're confused by that one of the open-source demo apps only displays the Z axis. Check the python example and protocol spec for more information https://yellowagents.com/seismometer/protocol.html

Best ap

Nel Zelpher

This ap is great for apartment vibration. The bezel filter is perfect for detecting floor vibration, and the ability to save and export vibration recording is perfect for proving to apartment staff that something should be done.

Gentlemen. Apple has declared that this app needs to be updated. I really like the app and request that steps be taken to modernize it so we can all continue to use it.
