mShell creates opportunities on app stores
G-Meter uses the built in accelerometer of the latest Nokia S60 devices to measure the current value and direction of G-force acting on the mobile phone. It models a traditional analog instrument and therefore ensures simple handling and maximum readability.
The application is entirely made with the freely available mobile development platform mShell (v3.02). The programming of this commercialy distributed app (Handango, Nokia OVI, airbit Web Shop) tooks little time, due to the power of mShell and its large standard library - for instance, module accel provides easy access to the built in accelerometer sensor that can be found on many latest Nokia phones running under Symbian OS, including volume modells like the N95_8GB.
The chalange was not really the programming or making the distribution file, it was more the testing and providing all the promotional materials needed to publish an application on a commercial application store.
