Pole Detector App
We now have our own first app in the Apple and Google app stores! The free app is called Pole Detector and is a really simple tool to determine the north and south pole of a magnet with your smartphone. Just point your phone at one side of the magnet and the integrated magnetometer helps determine the correct pole. The Pole Detector app is available in app stores throughout Europe.
Why did we develop the Pole Detector app? The question about the north or south pole in a magnet is not a trivial one. You don't always have a magnet with labelled poles at hand that can help you identify the poles of another magnet. That's when the Pole Detector app comes in handy: It's child's play to determine magnet poles with it. It helps make experiments and fabrications that involve magnets successful.
