Metal Detector Pro
By Phase2 Media
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The newest app from the makers of Email 'n Walk!
Detect nearby metal objects with your device! Amaze your friends by showing the magic of your electronic compass.
This sucker actually works! Hold it near a metal object and watch the needles show you the magnetic fields in action!
Note: You need an iPhone 3Gs in order for this to work because we use the internal compass to detect magnetic fields.
Also: If it gets stuck beeping, move your device around in a figure-8 or just shake it around a bit until it stops.
Looks cool, even functions a little.
Nice free app. Probably looks better as a metal detector than it functions as a one. It doesn't recognize coins or keys; but if you are two inches away from metal otherwise, it does alert you. Guess the only practical purpose would be to determine if something is indeed metal, as it won't help you find anything missing, probably. However, does seem to work to some degree at detecting metal, and how many other phones can say that? Also, thank you for the free app Phase2 Media!
It works !
It seems to work and reacts in various ways, even with sound. I would like to get a bit more information about the meters and on what is it more sensitive. Very good app. Please give us more information!
As mentioned it only works after allow it to get current location. Using a pair of scissors I found that around the Apple logo and near the lower text it worked. Just for fun, turned up the sensitivity and could use it like a simple magnet stud finder.
