    I came across this Tricorder app in the market that is just awesome! It uses the sensors in the Droid (might work on other android phones?) and measures gravitational & magnetic fields, geo information, decibels, Solar information, and radio signals. It's just a fun app to play with (especially the decibels!)

    So, in 20 words or less....what does this app actually do?

    I think it measures things around you. For instance if you are at a concert and want to know how loud it is this app would tell you.

    Also if you think Magneto is after you well there's an app for that.

    As a first post I'll add that I also think it's cool.
    The Audio app shows level and a spectrographic view. Pretty too.

    If you are into Ham Radio you'll like the Solar Activity panel. It has stats for # of sunspots and flares among other stuff. Also images of the sun at various wavelengths.

    And it's fun to play with.

    I used to think it was cool until I saw the tricorder app on the iphone. I wish the same one would come out for the droid.

    The iPhone app doesn't sense anything but movement. It has a bunch of pre-programmed info that simulates readings. This app actually TAKES readings using the sensors (magnetometer, accelerometer, compass, mic, camera, proximity sensor, gps, cell signal, internet) to display real time data. The iPhone one LOOKS better but this one actually DOES something.

    This seems to be the biggest difference between these two phones, not just this particular app....

    Tricorder provides you with astounding data on all sorts of environmental conditions. It is amazing, and almost entirely, but not quite, useless.

    I love it. I fire it up whenever I get bored.

    So we have a "droid" phone and we have a tricorder app and a lightsaber (actually I think there are a couple) app/s? Nice...

    I Just downloaded it after all the "rave" posted about it in this thread. I am indeed quite pleased with it. I only wish it would make the tri-corder scanning noise when active. Or atleast have that as a option
