I worked it out for my class. Here’s a sample app that takes you through the main points.

Never mind - I see

It works after you turn on mobileSensorStartTracking, and appears to return an array on my device

I put a button on my app and put the app on my iPhone.

The button had the following script:

on mouseUp

put MobileSensorReading("location",true) into tReading

answer the Keys of tReading

answer tReading

end mouseUp

I figured this would tell me if the function was supposed to return an array or a variable, since I had read both online.

Interestingly, it returned empty for both.
