Has anyone else tried this app? It's pretty cool how it actually detects metal.
I saw that app but didn't download it. It really works? I wonder how...
Oddly enough it does work. I can't see where it's practical but it does delight the masses.
The android phones have a magnetometer built into them for the compass. The software essentially taps into the magnetometer to detect a magnetic field. Quite a nifty feature to play with
You could use to when buying a car to see if any body work was done.
