It works as described. Weakly detects ferrous metals only as they disrupt the earth's magnetic field. As help file says, will not detect non-ferrous metals like aluminum. Very good at detecting magnets and can be set to vibrate for "high" levels. I am liking what this app developer has to offer.
definitely works on LG G4 I was sceptical at first, but sure enough after trying it, saw that it picks up on metals and magnets. even vibrates when its close to a magnet which is pretty cool. nice graph with location pointer too. 5 stars from me because the creator also gives you the option to turn off ads in the app. well done!
Works as advertised on Samsung S5 Very useful app I am a radio amateur and this has proved useful on several occasions. It detects electrical fields in non ferrous metals like copper wire too- very handy.
It'd be interesting if the data could be linked with global users to get an overview of Earth's magnetic field in different locations. But I suppose most phone magnetometer's don't provide very accurate data though it still might be interesting.
People please you need to get this. this dam thing really do work. 👍 go in the app. store an get it right now. i love it. thanks. This has to be one of the best thing i ever had. it good. it great.its the best of the best. ps no lie it really work.two thum up on this one. 👍 👍. thank you.
LG GFlex confirmed. I found the fuel oil fill pipe that had been buried by landscapers. I gad a general idea where it was because my oil guy from last year was looking in a 10X10 ft. area. He couldn't find it. I used the compass to home me in, when I got above and close the display turned red and the phone began to vibrate. Bulls-eye. It was under 2" of dirt and mulch. I called them asap and he's now on his way back to fill my underground tank. The setup works best if it's less than 3' away
0.7.4- bug fixes
0.7.3- More bug fixes
0.7.0 - Added compass-like arrow to point the source of the magnetic field (or at least try to...). Optimization changes. Tutorial (Android 4.0+) when app is first launched. Ads.
Used for vibration when level has reached a set threshold.
Used to save .csv records to SD card.
