An accelerometer is an electric sensor that measures the acceleration acting on any object attached to it.
In brief, it is used to calibrate the motion and position of objects in space.
Today, smartphones are already equipped with this sensor, but some apps satisfy the needs for intense gaming and other purposes.
List of Best Accelerometer Apps:
- PHYSICS TOOLBOX ACCELEROMETER.
- ACCELEROMETER DATA.
- ACCELEROMETER CALIBRATION FREE.
- ACCELEROMETER ANALYZER.
- ACCELEROMETER COUNTER.
- ACCELEROMETER(by MotionTrack).
- CAR ACCELEROMETER PRO.
- ACCELEROMETER MOUSE.

This accelerometer sensor app measures and displays multiple parameters like g-force, linear acceleration, gyroscope, and inclinometer.
It has a feature to display recorded data in separate X, Y, and Z dimensions.
It also provides features to display magnitudes in different formats like data, graphical, digital, pie chart, and vector.
The data collection rate can also be modified as per the need of the user.
For ease of users, a tutorial video is provided at the time of start-up.

This app displays and saves data from the accelerometer sensor.
It has the most straightforward interface to display and save the X, Y, and Z-axis.
It displays real-time acceleration data on a single line chart.
The chart created by the application automatically scales itself depending upon the highest and lowest values. Thus you don’t need to set an upper limit or lower limit while analyzing.
When operated for a long time, this application consumes a higher battery, so a battery charger is required if need to be operated for long durations.

This app calibrates your accelerometer sensor for a better motion gaming experience.
Every smartphone has an inbuilt sensor, but its performance deteriorates as time passes, so there is a need to calibrate it again. This is what this app does.
Its interface is simple, and you need to move the red dot in the green square and click on the calibrate button.
Moreover, an auto calibrate option is also provided in these apps, which notify the user when your phone sensor needs calibration.
As this app is free for users, it shows ads, its ad-free version is also available, but you need to pay for the same.
As said by developers, this app works better on rooted devices.

This tool is a powerful vibration meter tool.
This app shows the vibration of the device in real-time.
This app saves vibrational data in SD card(*zip files are also supported)
It calculates the RMS speed of the vibrations-which is useful for self-made drone calibrations.
The best feature about the app is that it provides configure sound alarm feature, which may be very useful to detect-
1).show alert when an earthquake strikes, especially at night time.
2) detect some vibrations when attached to the door of the house, which alerts when somebody opens it.
It is battery-consuming, so you need to connect a battery charger when operated for a long time.

This counter is based on an accelerometer sensor that counts values on shaking or rotating your devices.
This provides both AC and DC coupling options at our ease.
You can also adjust measurement speed as per your requirements.
One interesting feature which distinguishes this from other counters is that measured values can be obtained in both spherical and Cartesian coordinate systems.

This is a simple app that displays a graph of acceleration v/s time on the predefined X, Y, and Z-axis.
For the proper working of this application, only intelligent phones having at least one acceleration-related sensor,hardware, or software is required.
Besides mobile movements and vibration, the earth’s gravitational field can also be calculated with the help of these applications.
According to developers, this app is free, with no ads and no limitations, and no special permission is required for operating this application.
It has a sound alert system that beeps when a specific vibrational value is reached.
Also, it has a system using which the sampling rate can be adjusted.

In simple words, this Accelerometer app measures the forces that the occupants experience inside of a car.
The interface, Based on the internal sensor that most Android devices have, shows with the Green bubble where and how much your body is being pushed in two axes, longitudinal and lateral.
The red marks and displays in both axes hold a maximum reach since the last time you “Reset Max.”
A yellow mark tells that you have gone over scale, but red displays will still retain the maximum value.
All you need to do is, place your phone or tablet on your car´s holder and press “Calibrate” while the car is still and leveled.

Accelerometer Mouse is a mobile application developed for Google.
Android mobile platform uses the accelerometer on the device to control a mouse pointer on a computer on the same network.
The application requires a WiFi network or USB Networking to function.
The android application is a client which sends accelerometer data to a server application running on a computer, thus controlling the mouse via the tilting of the device.
By tilting the phone up and down, the mouse on the screen will also translate up and down.
Tilting the device side to side will also result in the mouse translating left or right on the computer.
Scrolling can be achieved by putting two fingers on the white space and tilting the device up or down.
Middle, left, and right buttons are utilized via touching the corresponding button on the screen.
In day-to-day life, we come across many situations where kinetic parameters are needed to be calculated.
These are the apps mentioned above that will help you in doing so.
Also, these apps will give accurate data which might not be obtained in manual calibration due to error in observation or device.
Moreover, there is a broad application of these accelerometer sensors, which make our life easy.
