See your iPhone in motion! Watch your iPhone's gyroscope and accelerometer sensors in action and discover how they work. Measure the effect of gravity on your iPad and experiment with its magnetometer. Apply filters to the data stream and save the sensor data to your phone and export it to your computer. Sensor Kinetics Pro gives you the complete picture about all of the motion sensors on your iPhone or iPad.
Scroll up and down the Sensor Kinetics Pro screen to see the many motion sensors in your iPhone. The advanced viewers show real-time measurements from all of the standard sensors available in your iPhone or iPad, including the gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer. Sensor Kinetics Pro provides a comprehensive look at the combined operations of all the kinetic (motion) sensors.
Tap the sensor title line with the chart icon to activate the chart viewer. Each chart viewer provides detailed scrolling graphs for the three relevant axes of the associated sensor. In the case of the accelerometer, the chart viewer has two modes. In raw data mode, it produces a graph of the accelerations along the X,Y,Z axes, while during Rotation data mode, the app computes the actual roll and pitch angles as they accumulate while you rotate and move the device.
Who Should Use Sensor Kinetics Pro? Developers, students, hobbyists... anyone who's curious about what lies "under the hood" of their iPhone or iPad! It will tell you exactly what motion sensors you have on your iPhone, what the sensors are measuring, and allows you to capture and export the data derived from the sensors.
APP DEVELOPERS: Developers can use Sensor Kinetics to closely watch the behavior of the sensors they use in their apps, then save this data and export it to your computer via e-mail (.csv or .plist). You can compare the performance of advanced sensors like the gyroscope, linear acceleration sensor and the rotation sensor.
TEST YOUR DEVICE: Sensor Kinetics allows you to test all of the sensors on your iPhone or iPad. For example, you can quickly determine if your iPhone has a gyroscope sensor and how fast it's operating. The chart viewers allow you to measure any sensor over time to gauge their accuracy and behavior.
EDUCATIONAL: Sensor Kinetics demonstrates the physics of gravity, acceleration, rotation, magnetism and more as these forces are measured by your iPhone or iPad sensors, including the gyroscope and accelerometer. The app includes comprehensive help files with easy to understand information and experiments that you can perform with the sensors. Great hands-on tool for physics courses on classical mechanics.
● Lists all the sensors available on your iPhone/iPad, including the accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, attitude sensor, linear acceleration sensor and gravity sensor.
● Graphically demonstrates each of these onboard sensors.
● Detailed charting displays captured sensor data in real time.
● Provides file storage and file sharing via e-mail. It also includes a tabular view for the raw sensor data. Users may apply various filters to the sensors' data stream.
● In-depth help files provides complete information on sensor operation and suggest numerous experiments.
● Can be used to record, monitor and share lengthy movements, vibrations and rotations.
Adding support for the current iOS version. Fixing a bug in the sensor data filtering.
Ratings and Reviews
Half the sensors don't work anymore.
The right stuff
1: This is a fantastic app, made by skilled developers. You can tell because the app is clean and elegant, like a proper tool. This makes operation fast and easy, while providing awesome live data though a visual interface. It's worth the purchase, it's less than a gallon of gasoline.
That being said, I hope that the app can continue to improve, or even give rise to other great apps like this!
-I am not sure if I missed it in settings, but my data stops recording when I lock my screen. When away from a charger, turning off the screen would help battery life.
-The 6 plus has an (almost hilarious) array of sensors, and I would love to get poking around! I would love to spend quite a bit of money on more apps like this. Here's some that I can think of: barometer, ambient light, proximity detection, autofocus, GPS, microphones, thermometer, and we can't forget the gimbal stabilized camera! I'm sure apple has some data hidden, but the more the merrier.
Even if the app stayed the same, I love this app and I can't wait to continue to learn!
Email functionality is broken
Wonderful app, but rendered almost useless when the data cannot be transferred to a computer. I've been able to do it before on my iPhone5, but have since then upgraded to an iPhone6 (and I believe there has been an update to this app as well?) and although the app appears to be "sending" each file, I never actually receive any of them. Please update this as soon as possible, without email functionality it is near impossible to properly analyze any data.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
