I'm super surprised how well this works! The adjustable sensitivity makes a huge difference for different wall types and it found the stud every time on every wall I tried. I use it for handyman work and at home and it's honestly better than an actual handheld stud finder (they suck!). I'll definitely be keeping this app.

I needed to find the pvc cable pipe mid-wall, i attached small magnets to the wire threader and used this app to track it's path. It worked exceptionally well, I was able to dig in within 1 cm of the reading. Honestly surprised and happy it worked so well with minimal effort and no additional cost. Great work devs! I suggest adding a lock option to the activate button, it would make it a little easier to trace in tight spots.

Not bad! works for the galaxy s8+, its actually a metal detector rather than a stud finder, but you can use it to find nails in the wall to help you locate a stud. This app should work as long as it has a magnet like the ones used for wireless charging.
