It’s time we got to know our Android devices a little better, preferably inside and out. And here to help you along the journey, AndroSensor. AndroSensor, by developer Fiv Asim, offers a plethora of features for you to keep track of the comings and goings of your Android smartphone. Get a quick glimpse of all real time data coming from your device’s sensors. Hit the break to check out the full list of sensors being monitored by the app followed by the download links for you to get started. Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below.
- location, location provider, accuracy, altitude and speed
- Google maps to show the above info. Tapping on your location shows your address, postal code and location accuracy (if available)
- accelerometer readings,
- gyroscope readings,
- light sensor value,
- ambient magnetic field values,
- device orientation
- proximity sensor readings
- temperature readings
- battery status, voltage, temperature and health

- If your device supports it, next to the sensor’s name, you will see how much power the sensor consumes per hour in mA.
From The Developer:
Press MENU to toggle settings, see device info, system log file or a list of sensors that are unavailable for your device.
– Device info gathers as much as it can and prints it out in a simple and easy-to-read view. Mobile signal strength, wifi info, CPU architecture, available and total RAM, internal and external memory, display metrics, OpenGLES version and kernel version are a small part of the information displayed. Clicking on a line copies it’s content to clipboard.
– Log view prints out the last ~100 lines of the device system log file, as in logcat. Saving or mailing the log will give you access to the full log file.
– Androsensor never runs in background, so it does not consume battery while you don’t use it.
– Supports Apps2SD.
– Enabled for Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and tablets.
