    Has anyone else tried this app? It's pretty cool how it actually detects metal.

    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.
