iMetal is the best metal detector for iPhone 3GS - yes that's right - the IPHONE 3GS CAN DETECT METAL.
Amaze all your friends by converting your iPhone into a metal detector and give them another reason to buy the new iPhone.

iMetal uses the magnetic detector/compass in iPhone 3GS to measure the surrounding magnetic field.  
When a metal object is near, this magnetic field changes and iMetal will alert.  Impress your friends with your iPhone's incredible hardware capability.

Using iMetal:
1) Calibrate iMetal by shaking your iPhone in an area free of metal objects. When iMetal reads "Ready", you can can begin scanning.
2) Place iPhone 3GS over metal objects.  The sidebars will increase relative to the strength of the magnetic field.
3) When a strong magnetic object is detected, iMetal will vibrate and sound.

Volume control included.  Only works with iPhone 3GS.

Customer Reviews

Agree. Does not work, even on 3GS

Moving the phone across any number of metal objects produces no measurable change in the display. It simply does not work. Although iMetal shows promise and seems fun, don't buy until this gets addressed. I want a refund.

Very cool!

Very cool and unique app! Worth every penny, and works as advertised!
