User reviews of Smart Compass
Very useful tool but not very accurate on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 where it can be off by 30 degrees depending on how you hold the phone ( I find that flat horizontal works best). The metal detector function is great, definitely better than my dedicated construction detector. Would be neat if it could detect live electrical wires :)

I like it. Gets the job done and the camera feature is helpful to find a "target" in the right direction!
