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 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 ( 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
*some sensors are not present on every phone.

Export formats
- CSV (Comma separated values)
- CSV (Tab-separated values)
- Excel

Reviews From google play store

Great app! Creates a website for other devices to connect to and browse an ongoing datacapture from an experiment. The data can be exported to a csv file, so it would be possible to further prosses it in Excel for example. Wonder if it would be possible to use it together with a ti nspire cas calculator somehow?

Almost everything I need in one package. Raw data filters would be great - threshold setting for accelerometer, for instance, could be extremely useful, since they are noisy as hell.

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.

Cool! So many different experiments. Also like the applause meter.

Informative, interesting info of what sensors on my mobile do, incorporating useful tools as well - all in one app.

no nonsense, feature loaded depending on the host device and q piece of cake to use.

v good app but lil bit slow in deleteing and exporting data.. one have to email each data for exporting rather than collectively transfer at a time

this app is very good for exploring your sensor functioning on your phone as well as for doing experiments using that information I highly recommend it and there are no ads or any kind of spyware on this

Great app. All Physics teacher should use it particularly if they don't have a lab. Thank you very much for this work.

This is awesome, my two boys are going to have a blast with this

This is the best app to access raw data from each individual sensor on your phone. Absolutely no limitation to the possibility of application to experimentation in everyday situation!

It is hard to believe that such a valuable, versatile, and well-organized app exists, never mind for free and without ads or other bloat. If I could suggest one improvement: I was very surprised that you can't view the spectra you've taken over time as "carpet"-style spectrograms. I'd really like to see that functionality.

OMG I'm like a kid in a candy shop! Was only expecting some nifty eye candy representation of data.. Not a full blown toolset of epic little goodies. Echo location is bloody brilliant, reliable on my XZP upto about 30 meters. Do love the audio filters and tools you've added, Doppler and Correlation have come in useful. Thanks Dev, keep it up!

Oh this is better than any game, using your phone for fun/interesting/eduational experiments Mind to keep the lid on the silly/stupid. eg. acceleration testing yr phone into concrete will probably destroy yr phone (as well as not giving a test result). There's good explanations for the uninitiated. The looks you'll get during your commute to work, priceless. Uninstall your Minecruft, Phyphox is here to activate your brain. Unleash your curiosity. Totally amesome! n.b. Phyphox is no toy.

Ha! Every phone in my opinion, should come with this type of readouts... instead of bloatware that collects excess useless data that fills up your phone over time. Main sensors reads are nicely categorized into easily understood menus, and overall theme is clean and straightforward. Good job guys.

The best application I can imagine. It can be used to diagnose your phone too, to find if any sensor is busted... also you can find any live wires in the walls before put any nails through. Or play cool experiments with your kids. The limit is your imagination.

Great Execution and Design, love the GUI. A small recommendation to the developers, offer a bit more in depth guidance to assist noobs with initial use.

Friggin AWESOME app! It had a wide variety of measuring tools that are both fun to play with and useful! I am so very happy to have stumbled across this inedible app!

..available sensors & data. allows different ways to organize & use data. inspires different uses, views of phone sensors (or lack of) hardware

This is the best app I have ever found, feel like im in the 29th Century. Just gotta watch out for Suliban now! This app should definately come with all mobile devices.

Hats off,,,, the APP, ... getting raw data so easily from all the device's sensors.. 😍😍

an amazing effort here....clearly much time and toil has been spent creating this amazing app. ...i never knew my phone had all these sensors on it

Nice app, very useful (if you have a little of science interest). Works great!

This app is amazing! I would be great to have some language specifications to build some custom experiments

this app is a great way to use the sensors in your cellular device

All in One. The app that uses all sensors efficiently.

really amazing app ! this is the best one ! works great on my samsung galaxy S3

Extremely useful and a nice UI!

Works great, big up 👍

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

The best app of physic

Good stable app

Great tool to learn about sensors

Very good app! Different than many others

best sensor app ever

very useful tool

Fun and useful. Thanks.

What a nifty ideas—physics experiments via the aid of a ubiquitous piece of technology that nearly everyone has, and even carries around on their person! #LoveIt!

Yes! Been looking for something like this for the STEM class I teach. Thanks!!

Nice app it is useful for many people thanks for creating this app

Nice concept to be a little bit of a scientist

This app is awesome. I'm a major fan

excellent Job, usefull to experiment

Experiment examples should be there

Easily 10-star rating.

NICELY made app hehe :0)

cool.. good job

Totally fascinating, thank you!

Installing with a 5 star rating based purely on Trust. I have a feeling that tonight's gonna be a Good Night. -L.

really awesome application for the curious mind!

Herr Lens recommended this. İts phenemonal.

The guy narrating the intro video is the same from Kurzgesagt channel in youtube :D

Hit Like if you're here to listen to Kurzgesagt's Voice.

Wow. Simply awesome. I'm not a bot .

I love doing Physics experiment using this App


I'm just getting know it

It's thew best app ever made

thank you for this lil wonder

looks good to me

Really cool app

Looks hella next level interesting

This is a very stupid app >:(

Best app ever


Sharp !

Excellent app

Excellent app


App is not fast in taking GPS location after update...

Sooo good.

Very good app. One thing is required. Kindly add distance travelled in gps data page.

Magnífica aplicació que permet extreure tot el suc al dispositiu que inicialment servia només per trucar i que ara mateix es un ordinador de butxaca amb desenes de sensors que permet acostar la ciència a tothom i, sobretot, als petits de la casa amb els experiments i mesures que incorpora

Kitchen table software [under soft standard, incorect sensors detecting and measurement, malfunction option, background traffic, .. {Android 4.2, tab&smart devices}]

Useful 😋😘

nice app

great app!


great I.D. !!!!!!!.



Amazing idea


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.

The app is beautifully designed and the graphs are very helpful. The problem I have on a OnePlus 5 is that the app stops collecting data when the screen goes off. This meant unfortunately that it is not usable for our use care - machine leaning from hours of sensor data.

Wow wow wow. Coolest app EVER for tech nerds. So blown away by the functions, i had no idea modern smart phones could do all this. Thank you and great job.

One of the best apps in the play store, Can I request theme options, and also option for scrolling scale ( as in showing last 10s or so) rather than constantly squashing the scale.

It's not awesome than you think, it's awesome than you can think! Amazing work . Great thanks to you by physics lover.

Awsome. Did not know my cell has so many sensors

The most wonderful app I've ever run across for some of my physics simulations

Holy Batman! Download this RN. The limit is your device capablilty. Thank you devs!

Amazing! Always thought my phone was retarded.

Искал другое. Это не то что я искал, но я нашёл это приложение и оно незаменимо! Шикарно! Жаль, что не знал о нём раньше.

Really creative app! And, app can be moved to external SD memory

That 's so good , compact and easy to use

Brilliant free sensor data app.

Great work!

I like it!

Awesome Job!!!
