Input motion on React Native

Provide an alternative way for actions activated by motion, to allow everyone to use the functionality. For example, for users with limited hand function, shaking is not always possible. Also make it possible to disable actions activated by motion. For example, for users with spasms, these actions could be triggered accidentally.

In React Native, packages like expo-sensors can be used to detect motion.

An event through sensors should not be the only way to trigger actions. Make sure to provide a second way, such as a button, to trigger the same action.

import { Accelerometer } from 'expo-sensors';

export default function App() {
  const _subscribe = () => {
      Accelerometer.addListener(accelerometerData => {
        // Provide alternative
