    I have no idea why this is so much fun... I guess my girlfriend was right when she told me I was easily amused.
    ditto on that!

    Me and my wife had a competition to see who could keep it in the middle the longest.

    Works great on my storm .75

    Best demo ever! Lol. This really does show a lot of potential and I'm stoked! If the ball were programmed a little lighter (weight), you could use the demo as level/leveler.

    there is a game for the iPhone, involving a ball, some walls (maze) and a hole... it's so simple but so fun, I could see this app being modified into that game.

    This is an awesome little App demo. It shows you how good the accelerometer really is. I honestly didnt think it was that good. I put this thing on my desk and it showed me that it was just a little off level. Which it is. So its pretty darn accurate as well.

    WOW...thanks for sharing this. before this, I had a strong bias and thought that my Storm's accelerometer was extremely inferior to the iPhone. This made me realize that ours isnt nearly as bad as I thought. I wonder why it translates so poorly when I flip the menu as opposed to my every move with this ball.

    I feel is is somewhat laggy. There is a perciptable delay from changing the attitude of the phone until the ball reacts.

    Try shaking the phone as well. This is very slow to react.

    That is seriously cool. I agree with previous posters... I was beginning to wonder if the Storm's accelerometer was clunky, kind of "up down left right" and that's it. This is super sensitive!

    Ok!! Where are the automotive apps??! 0-60 times etc. etc.

    It would work as a level... except for one problem. The two rubber feet on the bottom keep the storm from sitting flush on the table.

    Try it again, and then turn the phone around 180 degrees and you will see that it still says it is unlevel towards the top of the phone.

    But I'm sure a future app could factor in the rubber feet. Bring on the app store!

    I used CaptureIT as well on it --- but decided against including the screen shot just for the reason of "Hey look, it's a little blue dot!"

    Now time to figure out how to make a little Maze game out of it.
    The iPod touch has a marble maze game that uses the Accelerometer that's in it. Hopefully the developers of that software ports it to the Storm or someone, maybe yourself, can make a clone of it? It is addictive as you have to get the marble through a maze while avoiding holes that the marble can drop through.

    I'd love to make a little marble race/maze/etc out of it, but I'm still learning (tinkering) with the BB Java Development Environment. The more I dig into it, the more I realize it's definitely not for the weekend programmer. I'm hoping my C# experience will come in useful.

    If (when) I make anything anywhere near functional, I'll be sure to share.
