@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    buildView();

    ShakeOptions options = new ShakeOptions()
            .background(true)
            .interval(1000)
            .shakeCount(2)
            .sensibility(2.0f);

    this.shakeDetector = new ShakeDetector(options).start(this, new ShakeCallback() {
        @Override
        public void onShake() {
            Log.d("event", "onShake");
        }
    });

    //IF YOU WANT JUST IN BACKGROUND
    //this.shakeDetector = new ShakeDetector(options).start(this);
}

private void buildView() {
    Button btnStopService = (Button) findViewById(R.id.btnStopService);
    btnStopService.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        @Override
        public void onClick(View v) {
            Log.d("destroy", "destroy service shake");
            shakeDetector.stopShakeDetector(getBaseContext());
        }
    });
}

@Override
protected void onStop() {
    super.onStop();
}

@Override
protected void onDestroy() {
    shakeDetector.destroy(getBaseContext());
    super.onDestroy();
}

if you will run in background, create your broadcast receiver

public class ShakeReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
    @Override
    public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
        if (null != intent && intent.getAction().equals("shake.detector")) {
            ...
        }
    }
}
