float x_accl = sensorEvent.values[0];

float floatSum = Math.abs(x_accl) + Math.abs(y_accl) + Math.abs(z_accl);

// if(x_accl > 2 ||
// x_accl < -2 ||
// y_accl > 12 ||
// y_accl < -12 ||
// z_accl > 2 ||
// z_accl < -2)

if (floatSum > 14){
textView.setText("Yes, Shaking");
}
else {
textView.setText("No, NOT Shaking");
}
}
}

@Override
public void onAccuracyChanged(Sensor sensor, int i) {
}
};
sensorManager.registerListener(sensorEventListener, sensorShake, SensorManager.SENSOR_DELAY_NORMAL);
}
}
