It works like a charm!
Easily identified north and south poles on magnets. It makes it easy to determine which direction the magnets are facing for craft projects to ensure that it is all aligned identically.
Will use it again to check magnet polarity!
Minor issue: The terms and conditions required me to scroll down to the bottom of the toc before it let me select accept.
Yet another thing eaten by my phone
I’m increasingly working with magnets in my designs, and was on the verge of buying a pole detector. Lo and behold, this app shows up and it works great. I’ve tested it on standalone magnets and I can even use it to “see” the arrangement of N/S magnets in my iPad’s Smart Cover! Brilliant!
Does its one job well
App has just one job — identify poles of a magnet. Works just as advertised. No need to get phone close to magnet. In my tests it identified pole from a foot away (will vary with magnet strength I’m sure)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
