HOLY CRAP I'm totally freaked out that this actually works! I thought this was like a prank app but It worked when I held it above my metal bed frame and I was amazed! 5 stars!
Very cool app If the app does not work then either your phone does not have a working magnetometer or you have no clue what is going on. Very nice use of hardware and software, and a very creative idea. Keep up the SCIENCE!!!
Ahh I have a Samsung galaxy s4 active and it didn't work at all. I tried everything in my house and apperently nothing is metal
Worksssss Thank you for this helpful app. It works on Samsung galaxy s3. All you have to do is rotate the phone and it works😺😺💖💖
Thought this was a joke I searched for a metal detector app on a whim. Turns out my device has a magnetic field detector which this app makes great use of to detect some (not all) metals. Used the app to find 3 buried iron property marker bars at different corners of my yard. You'll need to get your device within about 8 inches so the read out will increase from 50s to 70s and finally into the 100s when real close.
Works fine on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Tested it on some hard drives, and it worked very well.
