  1. Support depends on the underlying platform

In addition to the table above, each sensor type might support specific features. For example, a magnetometer might support returning geo values. See isFeatureSupported() for additional details.

Sensor Gestures are mostly platform independent, and will run if the platform has the sensors required. Whether they are supported and work well or not depends on the platform.
