Description of phyphox

Did you know that you are carrying a 3D magnetometer? That you can use your phone as a pendulum to measure earth's local gravitational acceleration? That you can turn your phone into a sonar?

phyphox gives you access to the sensors of your phone either directly or through ready-to-play experiments which analyze your data and let you export raw data along with the results for further analysis. You can even define your own experiments on phyphox.org and share them with colleagues, students and friends.

Selected Features:

- A selection of pre-defined experiments. Just press play to start.

- Export your data to a range of widely used formats

- Remote-control your experiment through a web interface from any PC on the same network as your phone. No need to install anything on those PCs - all you need is a modern web browser.

- Define your own experiments by selecting sensor inputs, defining analysis steps and creating views as an interface using our web-editor (http://phyphox.org/editor). The analysis can consists of just adding two values or using advanced methods like Fourier transforms and crosscorrelation. We offer a whole toolbox of analysis functions.

Sensors supported:

- Accelerometer

- Magnetometer

- Gyroscope

- Light intensity

- Pressure

- Microphone

- Proximity

- GPS

*some sensors are not present on every phone.

Export formats

- CSV (Comma separated values)

- CSV (Tab-separated values)

- Excel

(if you need other formats, please let us know)

This app has been developed at the 2nd Institute of Physics A at the RWTH Aachen University.

Explanation for the permissions requested

If you have Android 6.0 or newer, some permissions will only be asked for when needed.

Internet: This grants phyphox network access, which is required to load experiments from online resources or when using the remote access. Both are only done when requested by the user and no other data is transmitted.

Bluetooth: Used to access external sensors.

Read external storage: This is may be necessary when opening an experiment stored on the device.

Record audio: Required to use the microphone in experiments.

Location: Used to access GPS for location-based experiments.

Camera: Used to scan QR codes for external experiment configurations.

Not really physics experiments as I was hoping, mostly just stuff based around the sensors in the mobile.

Exceptional for classroom use - as a teacher (age groups 11-18) it\'s fantastic that I can set my phone up in place in an experiment & then control and display all the information in real time on a screen through a browser. Makes data-logging equipment for demonstrations look poor in comparison & the number of sensors it accesses is awesome.

This app is great! The FFT option for the magnetometer is marvelous use of the existing smart phone sensor to create a rudimentary mobile EMF scanner. Try using it near a 3ph electric motor, and you\'ll see the produced disturbance in the magnetic field! I\'d like to see an option for the FFT to be able to set your own frequency range for the experiment, allowing you to eliminate frequency/frequencies you don\'t want to saturate the graph.

Easy to use, gets out of your device what\'s in there. Nicely done, and apparently they are still pushing it a further bit by bit. Looking forward to the next update, thanks a lot ladies and gentlemen!

Extremely useful for science addict like me. Although magnetometer seems to give quite noticeable inconsistent result no matter how many times I tried to 8-figure-calibrate. Although I recommend it and it deserves full 5 stars. +++ +++ +++ Edit: Kudos to the developer for respondng to this review. However, I don\'t understand German. GT only gives questionable translation accuracy...

About year ago, I told to teachers in school and university that \"you can build lab for kids and even 1st-2nd year students arround smartphones, even with simple raw data reading\". You did it!

Add wakelock support. I want to record for an hour and not drain the battery with screen on. Right now it stopa recording when putting to sleep. Also real clock time is missing from csv exports.
