Thanks Lorn!

It's a shame the simulator backend isn't built by default. It would be so much better for developing mobile apps on desktop (saves the push to device step), and reproducibility.

What has to happen for me to be able to use this?

I'm thinking a GUI app that you use sliders, toggle buttons, etc, and to replay previously recorded sensor values. But you could use it to simulate mobile sensors on desktop devices.
