[App] Physics Toolbox Sensor Suite

Physics Toolbox Sensor SuitePhysics Toolbox Sensor Suite : Useful for STEM education, academia, and industry, this app uses device sensor inputs to collect, record, and export data in comma separated value (csv) format through a shareable .csv file.

Data can be plotted against elapsed time on a graph or displayed digitally.

Users can export the data for further analysis in a spreadsheet or plotting tool.

This app also generates tones, colors, and a stroboscope.

See for a variety of usage ideas for STEM education.

A menu allows the user to sense or generate the following (dependent upon the user’s mobile device capabilities):

(1) G-Force Meter – ratio of Fn/Fg (x, y, z and/or total)
(2) Linear Accelerometer – acceleration (x, y, and/or z)
(3) Gyroscope – radial velocity (x, y, and/or z)
(4) Barometer – atmospheric pressure
(5) Roller Coaster – G-Force Meter, Linear Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Barometer
(6) Hygrometer – relative humidity
(7) Thermometer – temperature
(8) Proximeter – periodic motion and timer (timer and pendulum modes)
(9) Ruler – distance between two points
(10) Magnetometer – magnetic field intensity (x, y, z and/or total)
(11) Compass – magnetic field direction and bubble level
(12) GPS – latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, direction, number of satellites
(13) Inclinometer – azimuth, roll, pitch
(14) Light Meter – light intensity
(15) Sound Meter – sound intensity
(16) Tone Detector – frequency and musical tone
(17) Oscilloscope – wave shape and relative amplitude

(18) Multi Record

(19) Tone Generator – sound frequency producer
(20) Color Generator – R/G/B/Y/C/M, white, and custom color screen
(21) Stroboscope (beta) – camera flash

In multi record, users choose one or more of the above sensors to collect data at the same time. Files can be easily named before export, or saved to the device’s internal for easy organization and retrieval later on.

Additional features include the ability to record data with clock time or elapsed time, select either the comma or semicolon as the csv delimiter, change line width on graphs, modify the relative sensor collection rate, and maintain the screen on at all times.

Permissions Explained:


Used to calculate the azimuth.


A csv file is created and modified on the phone’s internal memory.


The app has a sound meter mode that analyzes sound using the microphone.

Physics Toolbox Sensor Suite user reviews :

One of The Best Apps written. 90% of the apps here are trash, worthless… literally. A Physics Teacher, and an App Developer conspired to create this. Check out the website, and bookmark it. A fun, well-produced, and seriously-useful tool, and also… very cool.

  • Thank you very much for the review and your kind comments.
Very nice A lot of cool things to play with compared to similar multi-tool apps. The variable speed strobe is a nice one. Maybe you can add a color analyzer? What is the oscilloscope measuring? Can we switch between front and rear camera in luminosity sensor? Would like to see a ball or some other 3d graphic option with the gyroscope. Maybe make graphics options paid upgrades? This is good enough to be worth it.

  • Thank you for the review. We have a stand alone app called Physics Toolbox Color Detector which you should download.The oscilloscope is measuring the sound wave by the microphone. The light sensor does NOT use the camera. It is an independent sensor. We recommend you to go to the light sensor mode and press the “i” button to see how it works

Last Update August 6, 2017 :

Added Android 7.1 shortcuts for Light Meter, Magnetometer and Sound Meter.
Increased clock-time timestamp milliseconds to 3 digits instead of 1.
Bug fixes.
Fixed wrong unit in y axis of Barometer mode when using mmHg.
Removed unused resources.
Fixed a navigation problem when pressing the back key while on sensor info (i).
Fixed a problem with the Traditional Chinese translation.
Improved the French translation of the app.
Fixed an infrequent crash on Sound Meter.
