Find magnetic field generating objects with your device! The app works thanks to device's built-in magnetometer! The sensor allows you to detect objects generating a magnetic & electromagnetic field like electronic devices (phones, wiretaps), sharp objects, metal screws, wires and much more!
The app is perfect for:
Construction workers & handymen ->
- to find where in the walls are hidden wires
- to determine the location of metal framing studs
- for educational purposes like school projects and experiments
Please note that Magnetic Detector PRO is not a replacement for professional metal detector devices and it should be used for private/entertainment purposes only.
- fixed issue with the random app shutdowns
- UI rendering bug fixed
Ratings and Reviews
I’m not entirely sure just WHAT it’s actually detecting (hey, I’ll admit I’m not a genius on this topic... yet*g*) but I know enough about magnetic fields to realize that they’re something we should be aware of. The app is really simple and very consistent. Plus, it’s great fun to play with 😎.
Now I just need to figure out why my iHome alarm clock/stereo system pegs the meter off the charts while my 16 plug surge protector barely registers! LOL
Works good if you practice.
This works good if one practices. At first it didn’t do to good. Then I took the phone case off. It works much better now.
Also place the back of the phone flat against the wall and slide it around.
Play with it to test it’s limits.
Don’t expect this to replace the high dollar professional units.
This worked great on my iPhone 7.
I saw the other bad reviews and I disagree completely. This seems to pick up however only magnetic metals like nails and screws in sheet rock. It does not pick up my gold ring, but for finding studs by locating nails this works very well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
