About this app

Metal Detector is an application which detects the presence of metal nearby by measuring the magnetic field value. This useful tool uses the magnetic sensor built-in your mobile device and shows magnetic field level in μT (microtesla). The magnetic field level (EMF) in nature is about 49 μT (micro tesla) or 490 mG (milli gauss); 1μT = 10mG. If any metal is near, the value of magnetic field will increase.

Metal Detector allows to identify any metal object in area, because all metals generate magnetic field which strength can be measured with this tool.

Usage is quite simple: launch this application on your mobile device and move it around. You will see that the magnetic field level shown on screen is constantly fluctuating. Colorful lines represent the three dimensions and the numbers on top shows the value of magnetic field level (EMF). The chart will increase and the device will vibrate and makes sounds announcing that metal is close. In settings you can change the sensitivity of vibration and sound effects.

You might use the Metal Detector it to find electrical wires in walls (like a stud finder), iron pipes on the ground... or pretend it's a ghost detector and scare someone! The accuracy of tool depends entirely on the sensor in your mobile device. Please, note that due to electromagnetic waves, the magnetic sensor is affected by electronic equipment.

Metal detector cannot detect gold, silver and coins made by copper. They are classified as non-ferrous that has no magnetic field. But maybe you will find metal box with some treasure inside!

Try this useful tool and other apps from Netigen Utilities series!

Attention! Not every model of smartphone has a magnetic field sensor. If your device does not have one, the application will not work. Sorry for this inconvenience. Contact us (mobile@netigen.pl), and we will try to help.

THIS ONE IS FOR REAL, FOLKS!! I am a real person who bought rare earth magnets to hot glue to the end of a large glue stick & spent over an hr randomly rubbing it back and forth along my textured ceiling in a vain attempt to find a joist 2 properly hang a plant... To NO avail! I was about 2 spend $ I don't have on a stud finder after installing & uninstalling 5 similar apps b4 I finally found this app! Within 2 mins of installing it, I found the joist I needed! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Works just fine on Android. I don't know what the others are doing wrong, but this is hands down the best app for the money as far as I am concerned. Haven't hit one nail with my planer yet using this app to locate them. Excellent app!

One of the best app! During winters in - 18 to -20 Degrees Celsius our entire supply lines gets freeze and its difficult to figure out how to trace these pipes which are under snow/soil 2 to 3 feets down. . I downloaded this app and believe me it was mericale the way it is helping to trace these pipes...its really a Big relief and I would recommend this to everyone. Thank you very much.
