Omnicorder

Omnicorder


Omnicorder is a tool that provides real-time data on location, bearing, orientation, light level, magnetic field strength, temperature, air pressure and humidity, subject to the sensors available on your device.
In addition to numerical sensor readouts, the application has the following features:

Location data is used to generate a Google Map of your location
Bearing data is used to generate a graphical compass
Orientation data is used to generate a graphical level tool
You can take and view photographs
You can record and playback voice memos
You can use your camera flash as a torch if you have one available on your device

There is also a configuration screen to allow you to set sounds, haptic feedback, map controls, photo quality and refresh rate.

Yes I admit it may have been somewhat inspired by a Star Trek tricorder!

I welcome any bug reports or feature requests.

Recent changes:
Caught exception generated when using the torch if another application has control of the camera.
Fixed issue with turning on map controls.
Better storage of configuration settings.

Hmmm Good idea, badly executed. I've had it and tried to use it for about a month. Half the stuff doesn't work, shame. I'm uninstalling after I finish writing this review.

Needs scan feature for WiFi & Bluetooth signals. Fonts are a little small, & Magna meter sensor might be good.

Eh Sensor readouts to small and hard to read. Light sensor does not work, torch does not work. All this is is a compass, level, and google map display
