    i have downloaded this simple code and that i wanted the code to be modified so that it can store the accelerometer data to a .txt file or .csv file. i am very new to android programming and so i wanted to see how the coding first. Pls bear with my incapabilities. here is the code:

    package com.example;

    import android.hardware.Sensor;
    import android.hardware.SensorEvent;
    import android.hardware.SensorEventListener;
    import android.hardware.SensorManager;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import android.app.Activity;
    import android.content.Context;
    import android.view.Menu;
    import android.widget.RelativeLayout;
    import android.widget.TextView;

    public class MainActivity extends Activity implements SensorEventListener {
    private SensorManager mSensorManager;
    private Sensor mAccelerometer;

    TextView title,tv,tv1,tv2;
    RelativeLayout layout;

    public final void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    mSensorManager = (SensorManager) getSystemService(Context.SENSOR_SERVICE);
    mAccelerometer = mSensorManager.getDefaultSensor(Sensor.TYPE_ACCELE ROMETER);

    //get layout
    layout = (RelativeLayout)findViewById(R.id.relative);

    //get textviews


    public final void onAccuracyChanged(Sensor sensor, int accuracy)
    // Do something here if sensor accuracy changes.

    public final void onSensorChanged(SensorEvent event)
    // Many sensors return 3 values, one for each axis.
    float x = event.values[0];
    float y = event.values[1];
    float z = event.values[2];

    //display values using TextView
    tv.setText("X axis:" +"\t\t"+x);
    tv1.setText("Y axis:" + "\t\t" +y);
    tv2.setText("Z axis:" +"\t\t" +z);


    protected void onResume()
    mSensorManager.registerListener(this, mAccelerometer, SensorManager.SENSOR_DELAY_NORMAL);

    protected void onPause() {

    i will be very glad to have a positive response to this thread. :)
