Description of Physics Toolbox Sensor Suite Pro

This app uses internal smartphone sensors to collect, display, record, and export .csv data files. See www.vieyrasoftware.net to (1) read about case usage in research and development, and (2) get lesson plans for educators of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, including physics. Sensor availability, precision, and accuracy are dependent upon smartphone hardware.

Sensors, generators, and data analysis tools include the following:


G-Force Meter - ratio of Fn/Fg (x, y, z and/or total)

Linear Accelerometer – acceleration (x, y, and/or z)

Gyroscope - radial velocity (x, y, and/or z)

Inclinometer - azimuth, roll, pitch

Protractor - angle from vertical or horizontal


Sound Meter - sound intensity

Tone Detector - frequency and musical tone

Tone Generator – sound frequency producer

Oscilloscope - wave shape and relative amplitude

Spectrum Analyzer - graphical FFT

Spectrogram - waterfall FFT


Light Meter - light intensity

Color Detector - detects HEX colors within a small rectangle area on the screen via the camera.

Color Generator – R/G/B/Y/C/M, white, and custom color screen

Proximeter - periodic motion and timer (timer and pendulum modes)

Stroboscope (beta) - camera flash

Wi-Fi - Wi-Fi signal strength


Compass - magnetic field direction and bubble level

Magnetometer - magnetic field intensity (x, y, z and/or total)

Magna-AR - augmented reality visualization of magnetic field vectors


Barometer - atmospheric pressure

Ruler - distance between two points

GPS - latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, direction, number of satellites

System Temperature - battery temperature


Multi Record - choose one or more of the above sensors to collect data at the same time.

Dual Sensor - display data from two sensors on a graph in real time.

Roller Coaster - G-Force Meter, Linear Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Barometer


Manual Data Plot - enter data manually to generate a graph.


Play - challenges


(a) Record: Record by pressing the red floating action button. Find saved data stored in the folder icon.

(b) Export: Export data by selecting an option to send via e-mail or shared in Google Drive or Dropbox. Locally saved files can also be transferred from the folder icon.

(c) Sensor Information: Clicking on the (i) icon to identify sensor name, vendor, and current data collection rate, and to learn what kind of data is collected by the sensor, its physical operating principle, and links to additional resources.


* Note that not all settings are available for all sensors.

(a) Data Display: View data in graphical, digital, or vector form.

(b) Graph Display: View multi-dimensional data sets on a single shared graph or in multiple individual graphs.

(c) Displayed Axis: For multi-dimensional data on a single shared graph, select total, x, y, and/or z-axis data.

(d) CSV Timestamp Format: Record clock time or elapsed time with sensor data.

(e) Line Width: Modify visual presentation of data with a Thin, Medium, or Thick line.

(f) Sensor Collection Rate: Set collection rate as Fastest, Game, UI, or Normal. The sensor collection rate is displayed for each option when selected.

(g) Keep the Screen On: Prevent the app from turning the screen off automatically.

(h) Calibrate: Calibrate selected sensors.

As another reviewer stated, there\'s not many truly great apps in the store... But yours is one of Great utility for professionals, instructors, and students. I\'ve used the free version for quite some time and I realized I needed to show my support. Really an indispensable app; and your attention to detail is magnificent.

I use this app quite frequently. Started out using the free version, but decided to pay for the upgrade. It was totally worth it. This is the only app that I have seen that applies a FFT to the accelerometer. It\'s very handy when trying to diagnose vibration issues with my car. A few bugs that need to be fixed, but nothing major.

This app is an easy and effective way to transform the sensors in your phone into a versatile tool set. I used the magnetometer, for example, during my doctoral research at Penn State to map out the geomagnetic field of our vacuum chamber. I used the accelerometer while teaching to measure vibrations during structural tests of students\' designs. At NASA, I\'ve used the audio spectrogram to identify faulty pumps. And for personal use, I\'ve used the audio spectrogram to identify birds in my backyard and the tone generator to tune my instruments. And, this app is essential for the curios who just wants to know more about the physical world around him or her. The graphical interface is not pleasing and sometimes confusing, but the app is very stable and reliable. Vieyra team is very response to emails, and gladly takes feature requests. EDIT: typos

Fab app. Only fault is when recording data, it doesnt always save the data. When recording data for an hour, the csv file returned is blank, but when recording for a matter of seconds it returns data at a rate of 1/s. Would be good to not only detect colour, but give an estimated wavelength of that colour as that would be much more useful. Of course some colours are a combination of wavelengths but to see at least a spectrograph of sorts would be really useful as a teaching tool

A great app. It was maddening that when I changed to the barometer feature the app crashed every time on my Pixel XL. I was contacted by the developer who suggested that I \"long press\" the app icon and go to the app info and clear the cache and memory. That fixed the problem I was having. Great to hear from an app developer so quickly and with good, clear instructions on how to make things right.

A great App, have used it to measure the acceleration performance of my car and for occasional indication only measurements at work. (I\'m an engineer). Love it! Keep up the great work!
Graeme Richardson 2018-04-24

Option for Ruler to be on left side of the screen would be useful, for us leftys, otherwise excellent, great app.

Great tool. Useful to teach a teen some physics and to teach that an app is not only made to play
Stefan Hudson 2021-01-15

Terrific app, gives access to the raw data coming from all of the sensors. I last used it to detect the magnetic field fluctuations produced by a water meter while troubleshooting a Flume sensor - it produced an impressively clean signal. Some suggestions for the developers: 1) Make it more obvious when data is being recorded, like change the color of the record button or screen border (i.e., only red while actually recording). I lost some data a couple times because I thought it was recording when it wasn\'t - it can be tricky see the screen in detail when collecting data sometimes. 2) When the app is re-opened, go back to the same sensor it was in previously. 3) Make an easy way to generate an FFT of data recorded from any channel - for the water meter, it would have been nice to be able to get a read of the frequency of the magnetometer data. This could also be useful as a tachometer for motors, etc.

This is an amazing resource! It reveals the power of a device we take for granted.
