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
* CSV exporting of recordings
* UDP Streaming

What's New in Version 2.3
iPhone 5 support
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.
Outstanding app. The streaming feature works incredibly well. Support by the developer is excellent also.
