Some Cool Android Apps to Scan, Measure, and Analyze

Inspired by the impressive capabilities the “Tricorder” applicatilon instilled in my normal Android devices, I decided to do a little research.  I specifically wanted to find applications that interact with the physical world in interesting and meaningful ways.

I came up with a list of applications that can turn your phone into a metal detector, a document scanner / photocopier, a heart-rate monitor, a telemetric measuring device. and even a geiger counter.  All these apps are freely available on Google Play.  See the complete list, including my own tests, descriptions, and download li.ks on my Cool and Useful Apps Hub.

Growing up the eldest son of a genuine horse trader (my Mom), I’ve accumulated a wealth of stories surrounding horses and horse people. Some are funny (at least in retrospect), and some are touching or poignant. Some of these stories are even true. Well, mostly true. Some of the names have been changed to protect the guilty, and to compensate for my failing memory. I certainly wouldn’t guarantee the historical accuracy of anything I say or write. Oh yeah - I'm also an IT Consultant, and sometimes I write articles about technology, current events, and anything else I take a notion to.
