Google launches new app "Science Journal" to make you embrace your inner scientist

Google has introduced new Android app called Science Journal.  The application measures and records data in real time, and then converts that data into easily readable graphs and charts. The new app will use the existing sensors in your phone or Arduino-powered add-ons to record data.

"Science Journal is a tool for doing science with your smartphone. You can use the sensors in your phone or connect to external sensors to conduct experiments on the world around you. Organize your ideas into projects, make predictions, take notes and collect data in multiple trials, then annotate and explore your results. It's the lab notebook you always have with you"
Users can store several projects in the app, and use tools like an accelerometer, plus light and sound meters, in order to gather information for their projects. For example, a user could record their running pace every day for a week, and then chart their progress on a line graph. While the number of sensors available to use is still small, Google says it will work with people in the science community to continually improve the app.
