Why the lack of free scientific apps for the ipad?

Plenty of toys, but I need tools!

Back story, I'm watching Deadliest Warrior on Netflix and geeking out over the accelerometers they were using. I'm thinking they'd be just the thing to strap to a paintball gun to measure previously hard to measure data like kick and "smoothness". So I pull out my Ipad and start browsing when it hits me, I'm holding a 3 axis accelerometer right in my hand! There's got to be an app for that...

Wow, there's hardly any. And none that do everything I need them to do. One that makes a nice graph in real time, but no way to start or stop it, and no way to export the data. One has a nice start and stop, and makes good graphs, but again no export. Almost worth the dollar. One does everything I need it to do, is free, but it's in fricken German!

Ugh!

I found a simple app that will record/output accelerometer data, it's not pretty but it looks to work. Look up "Raw Data" it's $.99 and outputs everything in csv.
