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 (TV, PC, 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.
Lastly, this app cannot detect gold, silver and coins made by copper. (They are classified as Non-ferrous that has no magnetic field.)

Metal Sniffer is a portable metal detector. By detecting nearby electromagnetic fields using the phone's built-in magnetometer/compass, you can locate nearby metal and magnets. You can also use it to find metallic studs and wiring behind walls. Depending on your phone, you can use it to detect metals up to 30cm away, and magnets from far, far away! Note that household equipment like TVs, and computers or even your phone case can affect readings.
Readings are separated per dimension, and is given in the unit of your choice (Tesla, Gauss, or Gamma), and combined to give a scalar reading. You can set a threshold at which the phone will vibrate when a critical reading has been reached.
You can also see a reading trend through the graph, or switch to the compass mode to find the direction at which the current is coming from! You can also record the readings to a .csv file for tracking or research.
===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.

How to use
The usage of this app is self explanatory. You will just have to download the app and then on the app when you want your mobile to work as a metal detector and switch it off when not in use. When you are using this app, then take care that your mobile is not near to a computer or any electronic devices as these electronic devices will hamper the readings. The power of this metal detector will be reduced when surrounded by electronic devices.
When you switch-on the app on your mobile phone and place near the metals like steel or iron, then automatically you will be able to the values on your screen. Going for a treasure hunt, then install this app metal detector on your mobile device. You will love the experience of this app.
Sometimes when you are using the metal detector app, then you may be able to see the values on your screen, it means that the sensors of the app are not working properly and you will have to fix the problem. It is very easy to fix the problem. All you have to do is just lift the phone towards the sky and rotate the phone in eight patterns. You will have to do this for at least 5 to 10 times and try the app. If it is still the same, then try doing it once and it should be working fine now. Do not use any magnet cover cases or any cases having a magnet in them for covering the mobile device.

This is a wonderful App that is capable of detecting Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) and Metals.
You can use this App for detecting
- EMFs at your house, office or any other places.
- You can use this app for Paranormal activities detection, if you think there is a Ghost or Sprit hauntings around you.
- You can detect radiations of you Desktop, Laptop, Wifi Hotspots and Mobile phones too.
- Detect Metals and specially Magnets around you (like TV speakers or multimedia speakers)
- PLEASE TRY AD FREE VERSION BEFORE TRYING THIS APP TO CHECK COMPATIBILITY WITH YOUR PHONE.
- This thing really works, but may not be as accurate as the real EMF and Metal detectors. This app uses built in Magnetic sensors to detect EMFs.
- This App does not display readings in Hz units (it just displays a meter with Extremely Low, Low, High and Very High EMFs)
Save option allowed for X , Y, Z emf vector values!! Take as many saves as you like no restrictions. All free!!!
It also acts as a Metal Detector [Not Guaranteed to work with every metals ]
Note : The accuracy depends entirely on the sensors in your device. Note that the magnetic sensor is affected by electronic equipment (TVs, PCs, etc. ) due to electromagnetic waves. This is not a bug in the app. 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.

Metal detector works on the same underlining principle so this application also can be used .for same purpose. Use this EMF sensor for saving data and later using it .
To make the best out of it, it is very important to use this app properly. We provide help within the app. More information is provided in our website www.goldsequence.com. You can also see this instruction video
We have tested this app in multiple buildings with different phones. It works pretty well for drywall if used properly. Even if you cover the drywall with a extra layer of 1/4 inch thick ceramic tile, the app can still work. That being said, the app is not without its limits. This app won't work well if the variation of magnetic field strength becomes too weak to pick up. For example, if you live in a old house with plaster wall and the plaster layer is more than 1/4 inch thick, the app will probably not work well. Even if your house uses drywall, if the size of the drywall screws is too small, it could generate problems for this app. So we agree that this app is not for every house. However, we do believe that it can do good things for many people in many houses.

Here're the features of this app:
1. Metal Detector: By test, some metals, which could react with the magnetic, such as steel, iron, they could be detected by this app.
2. Shows current EMF value, in uT(microTesla)
3. Vector by (X, Y, Z)
4. uT/Time Graph
5. Vibrator Control
Keywords: Metal Detector, Megnet Detector, Megnetic Field Sensor
REMEMBER!! The built-in microphones were aligned to human voice (300-3400Hz, 40-60dB). Therefore the maximum values are LIMITED by the hardware limitation, and very loud sound(100+ db) cannot be recognized. Moto Droid (max.100), Galaxy S3 (81dB), Galaxy Note (91dB), Galaxy S2 (98dB)...
SPL(sound pressure level) meter app uses your built-in microphone to measure noise volume in decibels(db), and shows a reference. We had calibrated many android devices with the actual sound level meter with dB(A).
See the 4-6th pictures. I had calibrated many android devices with an actual sound level meter. You can trust the result in routine-noise levels (40-70dB). But, please use it as an auxiliary tool.
* Pro version added Features :
- Sound Meter and Vibrometer are integrated
- Statistic menu with saving log data
- CSV file exporting
