Shimmy Diagnoser is a powerful app that replaces a conventional Vibration meter in Cars. It can detect even the slightest of vibration and not only present the frequency in a graph, but also tell what part of your vehicle that has a problem.
Just enter your car’s information, drive in a speed that is causing the vibration and read the graph telling you the intensity.
Easy to use app for determining why your car shakes, shimmy or vibrates!
Shimmy Diagnoser will show what type of vibration you are experiencing:
- Engine vibrations
- Tire vibrations
- Propshaft vibrations
A link to our website, containing the Help Book, tells you what your vibration is caused by and explains common misconceptions.
- Minor GUI improvements
Ratings and Reviews
It takes a while to understand the concept, but once you do this is a very powerful tool!
Nice idea, but ...
This app graphs the car's vibrations. However, going from the graph to a diagnosis would be the useful step that is missing in this app. You feel the shimmy, the graph shows the shimmy, good. Is the shimmy due to poor balancing or poor alignment and of which tire? Is the problem critical or acceptable? What should you do about it? In my experience the app is not ready for prime time. Should you pay 18 bucks to encourage the developer to work on a useful version? If you feel like a generous sponsor, do it.

I'm so sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the app.
You must have gotten the old version of the HelpBook. Please view the HelpBook once more in your app.
1. The accepted level is stated in the HelpBook, it's 12mG. 2. The red boxes would be the app identifying your vibration problem. 3. After running the Diagnose, go to the HelpBook, and read about the vibration type that is causing your issue.
I really want the app to function for you, so please contact me with the issues and I'm happy to do what it takes to work these issues out!
I will also be happy to provide a full refund.
This app, and the support, helped me conclude that the highway vibration I was experiencing was due to my large diameter rims and old tires.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
