Smart Phone Compass Calibration Method

  Newuser939 15:47 07 Jan 2014

I have just installed a compass app on my smart phone (Samsung S4 mini) and the app suggests moving the phone through a few figure of 8 movements to calibrate the compass. I have done that and it certainly works, but I have no idea why. Is anybody able to explain it?
