Magnetic Stud Finder

There really is an app for everything.

You can turn your smart-phone into a stud finder, courtesy of its magnetometer sensor, and some clever programmers.  I never realized that a stud finder doesn't find studs, it finds the nails which are driven into the studs.  Nails are metal, which the magnetometer can sense.

One more magic bubble burst.

There are a number of different apps available, with the links below just a starting point.
