Best Android Sensor Apps to Power Up Smartphone

Altimeter App

Altimeter GPS is a smart tracking devices, used to altitude measure. It is perfect app for people who love hiking, skiing, mountain biking and other outdoor activities. Any time and with high precision you can check altitude, elevation or localization coordinates. It works online and offline.

This altimeter app, to measure altitude uses:

  • GPS satellites triangulation – works without internet connection,
  • barometer pressure sensor (if available in your device) – high accurate data; if internet connection is available it calibrates itself to improve accuracy,
  • online networks location services (wifi and other) – need internet connection.

You can use each sensor separate or all together.

App altitude meter includes the following features:

  • accurate measurement of altitude – indication in meters or feet
  • record of: lowest (low), highest (max) altitude
  • smart mini compass
  • full GPS coordinates – latitude and longitude
  • current localization name and state
  • results of measurements are shown in the chart
  • ability to stop and record the results of measurements at any time
  • invert background color (black and white)
  • share summit top altitude pics – share photo with altitude to your friends or export them to save place.

Thermometer as mobile app

Measure the ambient temperature or outside temperature acquired by your local meteorological station*.


If features real thermometer look with analog and digital readout, Celsius and Fahrenheit scale and Indoor / Outdoor option.
It also has an animated weather background option based on the current weather conditions outside.

Thermometer can measure and display the ambient temperature in which your device is, however very few devices have dedicated ambient temperature sensor so on most devices the measured and displayed temperature is the temperature of the device’s internal electronics or battery . This is the same to the actual ambient temperature only if the device was long time on stand-by so the only correct way to know the actual ambient temperature is to start this app right after you wake your device that has been sitting on standby for at least an hour.


This limitation is not app’s fault and by using this method you can measure the actual ambient temperature to an accuracy of a degree.

*Outdoor temperature and weather information is provided by the Meteorologisk institutt of Norway NRK weather web service.

Pushup workout app

Push Ups Workout! Train with your Device! Your personal trainer for free.

The best Push up Workout app is coming with its unique design and powerful function.
This is a real personal fitness trainer. This is a cool body builder. Pushups Workout not only helps counting the number of push-ups workout you do, but also calculates the calorie you lose during every excise and makes the training plan based on your daily training and body status.

In training mode, Pushups app will make a reasonable training plan based on your age and body status. The plan will be divided in to six levels with each level containing several groups of push ups. Training plan for next group or level will be based on your current training result. In each new level the app will re-evaluate your body status to make sure the plan is customized.

You can not only count the push ups using proximity sensor but also enter the training data manually.

Check out how this pushups app helps you build up your body through doing pushup workout. It will not disappoint you.

Features:

  • Proximity sensor Counting
  • Enter training data manually
  • Graphs and Statistics
  • Training mode
  • Freestyle Mode

Seismic Vibrations Detector

Seismic Vibrations Detector is an app called seismograph or seismometer, which measures the strength of vibration, quakes, earthquakes, vibrations of the human body or any other objects around you.

app allows for detecting and recording of seismic waves generated by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, avalanches and other sources of vibration and shocks.
Accelerometer in your mobile phone is used for detection of vibrations and measurement analysis.

Graph presents a record of the ground motion at a measuring point. Ground movement or an object is presented as a function of time in the three Cartesian axes, with the z axis perpendicular to the Earth’s surface and the x- and y- axes parallel to the surface.

Mercalli intensity scale is a seismic scale used for measuring the intensity of an earthquake. It measures the effects of an earthquake and it is distinct from the moment of magnitude.

In this app Instrumental Intensity Scale (developed by The United States Geological Survey)is used which maps peak ground acceleration and peak ground velocity on an intensity scale similar to the felt Mercalli Scale. These values are used to create shake maps by seismologists on around the world.

Mercalli Intensity Scale distinguishes the following levels of vibration and impact damage:

I. Instrumental – Not felt. Recorded by seismographs.
II. Weak – Felt only on top floors of high buildings.
III. Slight – Felt indoors, like a passing light truck.
IV. Moderate – Windows, doors rattle. Like passing train.
V. Rather Strong – Felt by all. Small objects upset.
VI. Strong – Books off shelves. Trees shake. Damage.
VII. Very Strong – Difficult to stand. Buildings damaged.
VIII. Destructive – Significant damage. Trees broken.
IX. Violent – General panic. Serious damage. Cracks.
X. Intense – Most buildings destroyed. Rails bent.
XI. Extreme – Rails bent greatly. Pipelines destroyed.
XII. Catastrophic – Near total damage.

This app allows you monitor and share the results of your measurements with other users.
Measure and monitor all vibration and shocks using smartphone or tablet! All features are free. You can remove all ads from app by purchase “no ads”.
