Is it possible to detect phone shakes with B4A?

I'm working on a small app that I want to run in the background on my phone. A trick I've seen other apps employ involves shaking the phone to execute a specific task: in some apps it shuffles music, and in others it toggles the state of a setting. I would like to be able to detect when the phone shakes and trigger a specific action inside my app. Can the PhoneSensors object be hacked around to make this work, or is there a specific Android API call which i should try to use to handle this better?

Thanks for any pointers.
