We were covered in "The Independent Guide To The iPhone 3Gs" By Nik Rawlinson. Here is his review
"This is a novelty app but one that also helps you learn something new. The concept is simple. You just leave tour iPhone on hard surface with the app fired up then tap somewhere nearby and watch what happens.
It looks like something you’d find in a hospital, but it’s one of those things that is very captivating once you’ve looked at it once. In fact, we completely lost track of time when we played with this app as we tried out different tap-based compositions – MTV had nothing on us during this review.
You’ve got the ability to pause the ‘recording’ of movement around the iPhone, in addition to looking at colorful spectrum graph of what occurred in the three seconds prior to requesting that data.
We didn’t quite understand what the chart was showing us. But it looked pretty nonetheless and it’ll make you look über intelligent to anyone looking over your shoulder .
The app will monitor movement for 10 seconds and report back on the last three seconds of activity. You can then upload that data in snazzy graph format to the web for all to see. Old friends will probably think you’ve changed career."
Ratings and Reviews
Really good response
this app has fantastic sensitivity!
it could do with better graphics/colours and a chart speed control to slower it down a bit, would gladly pay for better design.
Very good to whoever thought of it.....
Worked ok on my iPhone 5...
However, on the iPhone 6, I cannot pause it once it's running, and I cannot close the banner at the top (Contribute to earthquake relief funds) either. It freezes in the running mode and becomes useless.
I've mentioned this on several occasions, but the App owner doesn't seem to care.
Will have to look for another seismometer App... anything will be an improvement on this one and I suspect that App support will be available as well.
Well! It works…and it doesn’t. It happily meters movement but you can’t stop it. Just keeps reading. Pause button doesn’t work so can’t use any other of the displayed features. Shall have to video the screen in order to make sense of the graphs.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
