Description

An amazing visual gyroscope for your iPhone, iPod or iPad. This application displays a 3d gyroscope that acts just like a real gyroscope would and looks so real you'll want to touch it! And it acts as an educational tool too — press a button and learn about the maths and the history behind gyroscopes.

Gyroscope is an advert supported application.

NOTE: we've received reports that gyroscope-based applications fail to download or install on some iPad 2s running iOS 4.3 prior to 4.3.1. If you have problems downloading this app then please try attaching your device to iTunes and updating it to the newest version of iOS.

What’s New

Nicely done; missing precession.

Very nicely done. One behavior is missing, though: a gyroscope precesses. Being a pilot, I'd really like to see this simulated (perhaps with an option to disable it - but with a brief description as to why precession is there in the first place). It would be fun to tilt the iPad forward and see the axis tilt to the side (in addition to the pitch change.

The description uses an aircraft for illustrating roll, pitch, and yaw. When any of these changes, the precession caused by the rotating propeller must be compensated for, though most maneuvers are slow enough that the effect can be relatively small. That said, on takeoff, rotating to climb attitude will cause noticeable yaw - especially for a tail-dragger. Speaking of which: aerobatic maneuvers result in rapid changes to the plane of the prop's rotation, requiring control input to compensate (most aerobatic planes are tail-draggers).

Great. Hopefully moved to 64-bit soon.

Works great. Actually uses gyroscopes instead of accelerometers — works perfectly even with quick acceleration in a direction. Won't work in iOS 11 though.
