Are you utilizing your smartphones to their fullest?

Have you Ever checked out all the features of your tech loaded smartphones?

Do you think, you are utilizing your smartphone to its maximum potential or at least 60% of what it is capable of?

As per the survey of some of the leading tech magazines an average person uses just 23%to 27% of many awesome inbuilt features of their smartphones.

We generally resolve to use the mobile apps which are featured or advertised on the play store or Appstore for android or apple devices respectively.

Factburp takes a dig into some of the coolest apps which utilize your smartphones to its optimum levels.


AndroSensor:-Ponder this app your one-stop application for learning all about what your phone has to offer. Though It’s a single screen it lists all the information coming from your sensors, it shows graphs and gives you details about what the individual sensors do.

It isn’t the sort of app you’d use to actually find particular data from your phone, but it can give you an idea which sensors your device has and whether they’re working properly.


Wifi Analyzer:-Knowing what’s going on with a Wi-Fi network is of extreme importance for IT professionals, and it’s a good thing for consumers to have access to as well. Wifi Analyzer provides tons of information about wireless internet networks near your location, including signal strength, which channels should be avoided, lists of all the APs your phone can reach, and other essential data. 


Metal Sniffer:-What Metal Sniffer can does is it finds magnetic fields from the powerful (magnets) to the undetectable (a nail is hidden behind drywall). There’s no need to have a stud finder anymore–your phone can do it.


Clinometer:-You can use the Clinometer to tilt your phone to the appropriate angles for various jobs such as placing a fulcrum for lifting weights etc.This app can do surface level and angles for free, and with a $1.50 one-time in-app purchase it can also do relative angles and measure angles using the camera. I highly recommend it–having that ability in your pocket is incredibly useful.


LightMeter Free:-This little yet effective app replicates the look of an old-school analog light meter but using the light sensor and camera of your smartphone. It can do both incidents and reflected light, making it a great tool to replace that old photometer.


Smart Thermometer:-If your Android device has an air temperature thermometer (and that’s a big if as they aren’t too common) you can get real-time readings with Smart Thermometer. Without a sensor, it just displays the current local temperature like any other weather app, so if trying to refresh it isn’t working you probably don’t have an air temperature sensor in your device.

Sound Meter:-It’s always a good idea to know how loud your environment is, and Sound Meter makes it easy to not only chart the noise level, but also to compare it to other noises. It can also be fun to challenge your friends to a shouting contest to see who really is the loudest. Earplugs recommended.


Heart Rate Monitor:-Only a few flagship devices, namely Samsung’s Galaxy S and Note series, come with actual heart rate sensors. That doesn’t mean your device isn’t capable of sensing your heart rate, though.Heart Rate Monitor was able to use the camera and flash to measure my heart rate accurately, or at least as accurately as the actual heart rate sensor on the device (Samsung Galaxy S7) did. If you have a Samsung device you can use Samsung Health to activate the heart rate sensor, but for those without a dedicated heart rate sensor, apps like this one can still do the job.

Maps.Me:-I really like Maps.Me: It has an intuitive interface just like stock map apps, and you can download regions so that you can make use of your GPS sensors when you don’t have a data connection.

I would like to recommend it not only for its perfect use of your GPS sensors but because you never know when you’ll get lost without a data connection.

Physics Toolbox Sensor Suite:- It rolls a bunch of sensors into one app, and its capabilities are a good choice if you want an all-in-one.

It uses sensors to measure all sorts of typical things, like acceleration, magnetic fields, barometric pressure, and the like. But it also has a bunch of neat features like a color detector, tone detector, oscilloscope, tone generator, and color generator.
