I can’t afford a Developer membership at the moment, and it looks like I can’t test the accelerometer with the simulator. I’ve tried to simulate shake and move left/right in the simulator but it doesn’t work. Does the simulator just not support the accelerometer and is there a way around that? Or perhaps I am just doing something wrong (though I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the code)?
I have the same problem. The codes on page 152 does not seem to have any effect when shaking or rotating the hardware on the simulator.
I use Xcode 4.2.1 and OSX 10.7.2.
The following post says the accelerometer does not work in the simulator.
