    I am pretty new to mac, and was wondering if there were any good accelerometer apps. I am pretty sure I have seen some before, but can't seem to find any.

    I am thinking of things like, tapping the macbook to switch spaces. I'm sure I have seen that before. Also, any other useful, or fun apps would be great.

    Please let me know if I have dreamt these up, or let me know what they are called if they exist. With some links if possible. Thanks for the help in advance.

    The Spaces-like Smackbook has been integrated as an option in VirtueDesktops

    Tunnel is a fun motion sensor game - I've played more complex 3D games, but the accuracy of the accelerometer is just not good enough.

    It's called a sudden motion sensor (or SMS), not an accelerometer.

    Here are some that I use:
    iAlertU - alarm system app that sounds an alarm when the mb is moved
    Tunnel - an arcade game where you fly a spaceship by tilting the mb
    LiquidMac - move liquid around on your screen by tilting your mb

    Doesn't a sudden motion sensor & accelermeter mean the same thing? as i always thought they
    did
