    Neat. I'm guessing that this does an integration on the accelerometer data? How accurate is it? If you can guage accuracy of the reading, you might want to put the accuracy range under the actual measurement.

    I'd suggest a tip in the help tab on how to improve accuracy. i.e. "fast movement of the phone helps accuracy."
