Better than Nothing While not technically a "stud" finder per say, it does work by using a metal detector (upper left on S4) to find the nails in the studs, which is a little trickier, but it works in the end.
Not really working on Samsung galaxy s4. Found most probable sensor location to be top left. No beep even when beep its enabled. Suppose it works, just not as I would expect it. I get a higher reading with metal placed near sensor, but no audible confirmation.
Cool idea but... Since it uses the phone mag censor, the app relies on the hardware. I have an app that looks at raw hardware data. I see how it would work but on my Samsung s4, not so well. Still not sure how wood studs can effect a mag sensor. They are non ferrous. You might pick up on a screw. I bet metal studs would work great.
Worked perfectly on my nexus 4. You have to make several passes over the wall at different heights as it detects the screws not the actual studs.
Awesome! We found the studs and hung our screen. Read the directions and you won't have any issues!
Magic, essentially This app turned my galaxy s4 into a batman meets Clint Eastwood haptic-feedback-powered stud finding MACHINE. It was extremely effective.
