[App] Metal Detector
Metal Detector is in the 3rd set of the Smart Tools collection.
This app measures magnetic field values using the magnetic sensors that is built into the phone. The magnetic field level(EMF) in nature is about 49μT(microtesla) or 490mG(milligauss); 1μT = 10mG.
If there is any metal in the area, the strength of the magnetic field should increase. Among other uses, it can be helpful in finding electrical wires in walls and metal in the ground.
Usage is simple: Open this app on your device, and move it around; The magnetic field values will constantly fluctuate; See the YouTube video for a demonstration. That’s it!
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.
Sometimes a leather case with a magnetic “snap” can cause unwanted results. Remove the case to increase accuracy.

Metal Detector user reviews:
it work but i don’t know what to do with it.. maybe time for treasure hunt
always wanted one..how much iron in my liver
Nothing to shout about kinda worked some times, most of the time nothing
Never knew you could turn your phone into a metal detector, but I guess you can. Works will on radiator corners
That is so cool because I found a lost nail 😀
Very nice app g i like itt very much g..
Works perfectly fine on on my galaxy y.worth the downwards.
Not bad at all. I use it to detect magnetic fields around audio equipment. Tried one before and it didn’t work to well. This one does the job. Thanks!
Wow it actually works. Detects magnetic objects.
