If you're going to do it by magne, like this app attempts to do, go with my 10 year old's advice. He watched me try to use the app, then ran to the kitchen to get magnets from the fridge. I now have perfectly lined magnets on the wall showing me the exact location of the stud. I didn't even need a pencil. :)
I live in a very old tiny Studio Cottage and I was having a difficult time finding the studs to hand a tv wall mount. This app actually found the studs and I was able to hang it with no problem. The ads didn't bother me because everybody in this life needs to get paid somehow. Thanks
First you have to find where the magnetometer is in your phone. Attn: idiots, most coins aren't made of magnetic materials. A coin won't work. If you're smart enough to design a stud finder you should be smart enough to know that. Since the ads suck and your app doesn't work I'd say your 0 for 3.
Not real. When you flipped your phone up, red lights would come on no matter where you were. I tested it in my garage where studs are painted already........no!
Lots of ads but... I can't say for sure if I'd call this a good app because ads pop over the app screen while I was trying to use it. I can't even say for sure it's not a novelty app (meaning non working but looks cool) but I gave it 3 stars because it lit up green within an inch of the stud, which I found basically by measuring from a window in 16 inch increments. I'll probably uninstall it now but it was fun to try.
Well I tried to make it work got the green light found the stud area red lights and all super easy to use, however I am going to uninstall it and not use it because even though you say you have removed ads and you have a remove ad button in the apt that takes you to an area to buy this apt and if you don't buy it you get an ad every time you touch any button on the apt this is unfortunate because it seemed like it was a apt that would work so to save my phone battery and not have to look at ads I will just go to Home depot and buy a stud finder sorry your loss
