This app measures magnetic field value using the built-in magnetic sensor that is built into your device. The magnetic field level(EMF) in nature is about 49μT(micro tesla) or 490mG(milli gauss); 1μT = 10mG.
If there is any metal in the area, the strength of the magnetic field should increase. Sometimes, this app used to find electrical wires in walls (like a stud finder) and iron pipes in the ground.
Usage is simple: Open this app on your device, and move it around. The magnetic field level will constantly fluctuate. That's it!
A lot of ghost hunters had downloaded this app, and they had experimented as a ghost detector.
The accuracy depends entirely on the sensor in your device. Note that the magnetic sensor is affected by electronic equipment (TVs, PCs, etc.) due to electromagnetic waves.
If this app does not work properly, it may mean that your phone's sensors are damaged, broken or non-existent. To initialize the sensors, point your phone up towards the sky and move it in a figure 8 pattern. Especially, a view cover with a magnet or a leather case with a magnetic snap can cause unwanted results.

Metal Detector app uses your devices magnetic sensor to measure magnetic field values and turns your phone into a real metal detector. Data is displayed in µT (micro Testla). 1µT = 10mG (milli Gauss). The magnetic field in nature ranges from 25 to 65 µT (0.25 to 0.65 G). Any higher measurement is an indication of metal in the area. When there is metal in the area, magnetic field increases. App works best detecting ferromagnetic materials, such as iron and can’t detect non-ferromagnetic materials such as aluminum. App works best detecting metals up to 15cm away.
Metal Detector app is simple to use, just open it and move it around. If the magnetic field values rise there is metal in the area. Accuracy of the app is entirely dependent on the magnetic sensor in your device and is affected by electrical equipment such as TVs, PCs… due to electromagnetic waves.
If the app does not work as it should then the problem is in your magnetic sensor. Maybe your device does not have one. Or try to initialize the sensors by pointing your phone up and rotate it in a figure 8 pattern.
If your device's case has magnets or contains metal elements remove the case before using the app.
We were told ghost hunters use our app to use it for ghost detection :)
*OPEN HELP FIRST
*If you're @ a PC, it'll screw with the readings, so set it on a desk, zero, then wave stuff on top of it.
*It can't detect some stuff like aluminum.
*D/L probs aren't me; contact google.

Most Android phones have a built in magnetometer. This sensor picks up magnetic readings in three dimensions around the device. Strongest at a certain point on the phone, this data can be used to create an overall magnetometer reading which this app interprets. The app will receive the most accurate reading holding the phone about 15cm away from the object and assuring that the object is directly underneath the device's magnetometer.
Try not to keep the device around objects that can create their own magnetic fields because it can interfere with the magnetometer. Laptops, power outlets, or even chargers can all have this affect. Additionally, the app is only as accurate as the magnetometer in your phone. Some phones do not have a magnetometer and some have a very poor one. The app only interprets and plots the data from the readings, it has no effect on the readings themselves.
Please note that neither this nor any other metal detector app will work lacking the magnetometer hardware. Additionally, the magnetometer hardware is limited to detecting ferromagnetic materials such as iron and will not detect non ferromagnetic materials such as aluminum.

This app detects nearby electromagnetic fields using the phone's built-in magnetometer/compass. Depending on your phone, you can use it to detect metals up to 15cm away, and magnets from far, far away! Note that household equipment like TVs, and computers or even your phone case can affect readings.
===How to use this app?===
Very simple, just move the app around and read the measurements, if the magnetic field readings go over a critical level, the phone will vibrate, meaning a ferromagnetic material is nearby.
If the readings aren't getting updated, make sure your phone is equipped with a magnetometer.
If the readings seems to be off, it means that your sensors needs to be re-calibrated, click the re-calibration button (refresh icon) for instructions.

The metal/magnetic field detector may require you to move your device close to the magnetic source (10-15cm) before a reading can be done.
The normal ambient magnetic field is around 49 micro tesla (µT).
If you experience very high or low deviations from this value:
1. Ensure that you are far away from any magnetic source that might disturb the magnetometer.
2. Calibrate the magnetometer by moving the device in a figure-8 pattern, first horizontally (with display facing upwards) and then vertically (with display facing your direction).
3. If you are still experiencing unusual magnetic field readings then this may be because of an improper magnetometer in your device.
This metal detector was developing, tuning and testing during 4 months and is utilizing magnetometer full capabilities. Using this detector you’ll easily identify ferromagnetic metal objects (steel, iron, gold, pure silver). By approaching device to a bag or pocket (you can initially switch device to vibration mode for anonymity), you can easily find out whether there are metal objects.
TOOL 1: GOLD CHECKER
reveals highly conductive metals such as gold, silver and copper.
Electrical conductivity is a property of all metals, due to their electrons which are free to move and carry the electric charge, but there are metals much more conductive than others. Gold, even if it conducts less electricity than silver and copper, is with no doubt the best because it's not subject to oxidation.
We can use a capacitive touchscreen to detect the conductivity of a material, once put in contact with the surface of the screen!
Place the metal on the conductive platform and watch for electro static discharges. You can tell if's true gold or fake gold!
IMPORTANT! The functionality of this app is entirely dependent on the characteristics of your device's screen. Only capacitive screens can detect conductivity, not resistive screens.
TOOL 2: METAL DETECTOR
measures alterations of the magnetic field due to the presence of certain types of metals or magnets.
In the presence of a magnet or ferromagnetic materials such as iron or cobalt, the natural magnetic field is altered and can be detected with this instrument. Diamagnetic metals instead cannot be detected with this system, because they don't react to the presence of magnetic field.
The sensor measures the intensity of the magnetic field in the three directions of space, and its total strength. The functionality of this app is entirely dependent on the characteristics of the magnetic sensor of your device.
This app measures the speed of a moving object by touch like a velocimeter.
Usage is easy: To measure the speed, input the closest distance to the target, and touch the screen following target. Please measure the target distance in advance with a range finder tool(e.g. Smart Distance, Smart Measure).
It supports most android devices with rear camera. If the result is not accurate, you can calibrate your device with the [Speed Calibration].

For more information, see the manual, Youtube video and the blog. Thank you.
Usage is extremely simple: activate the tool and inspect the ground. The presence of metal will increase the intensity of the magnetic field. The increase in intensity is indicated by the sound emitted by the device and the lights.
The metal detector is free and implements a correction algorithm that eliminates the geo-magnetic field interference, providing highly accurate results.
The instrument is highly sensitive to the following metals: gold, silver, platinum, palladium, ruthenium, rhodium, osmium, iridium, aluminum, lead, chromium, iron, cadmium, cobalt, copper, magnesium, molybdenum, nickel, platinum, plutonium , mercury, titanium, uranium, tungsten, zinc and tin.
Discover new deposits of metals with your personal metal detector!
The actual value is easy to read in an analog meter and displayed also as numeric value in different colors: Red stands for low signal, yellow for normal signal and green for a high signal. If the green area is reached, a short sound is played.
The display shows basic information about the built in magnetic field sensor.
The application only works if the sensor exists, otherwise you will receive a short message that it can't start.
