simple interface and works. Heres some Tip..... use the tip of a ball point pen to find the exact location of the senor on the back of your phone. this helps figuring out exactly where the metal is and not somewhere behind your gigantic phone.....also move your phone in a figure 8 pattern to reset the sensor after its been near a magnet aka a real strong signal from the app.
Incredibly easy to use, and seems accurate when holing up against my laptop and remotes. I'd likely just use it as a stud finder, but do appreciate how simple it is to use. It's also nice that it beeps so you don't have to be looking at the phone while using it.
Awesome app! I was shocked to see it actually worked. Nice interface and easy to use. Now I just need to make something like a selfie stick so I can find buried treasure :D
I think this may be useful for finding steel studs in commercial buildings - maybe not as good as a stud finder, but with me when I need it. Worked ok on pocket contents even though I have a steel plate for a magnet mount on the lower back of my phone.
Didn't even know my phone had this sensor! After some time I was able to locate my sensors location and optimal angle on my device and I just went from there scavenging for metal.
After figure-8/cloverleaf pattern reliably detected proximity to metal furniture with reproducible measurements. Placed next to suspiciously warm part of UPS unit nearest to its transformer and got a lot of noise/fluttering above normal level, confirming my suspicions. Similar (lower amplitude) fluttering measured from switch-mode power supply attached to laptop. *Edit:* The figure-8 initialization seems to persist between resets, but pegging the reading off the scale by poking the UPS with the phone seems to undone it. Fortunately repeating the pattern restores functionality. _Edit 2:_ I wonder if my UPS can degauss tools.
