    Metal Detector lets you detect small metal objects if you device comes with a magnetometer

    • Free to try out
    • Fairly accurate readings
    • Lightweight
    • Doesn't work without a magnetometer equipped
    • Outdated app
    • No way to adjust the sensitivity

    "Detect small metal objects over your device"


    If your device happens to have a magnetometer, Metal Detector from Kurt Radwanski looks to turn your device into a cheap alternative to other, larger, and more expensive metal detectors out there. Though not made so you can go searching for buried treasure, Metal Detector detects small metallic objects that you wave over your device.


    Metal Detector works well with lower-end devices sporting older operating systems and weighs in at only 42kb, making for a lightweight app that doesn’t drain your battery. It’s fairly easy to use and provides fairly accurate readings.


    Metal Detector doesn’t work with devices without a magnetometer already inside. There’s also no way to adjust the sensitivity. This app also hasn’t been updated in roughly 6 years, which means no developer support and unfixed bugs.

    Turns your cell phone into a metal detector, and makes people with iPhones jealous.

    *OPEN HELP FIRST, read instructions. It's not magic and it's not a fake app.
    *If you're at a PC, it'll interfere with the readings, so set it on a desk, zero, then wave stuff on top of it.
    *It can't detect some stuff like aluminium.
    *D/L probs aren't me; contact google.
    *Like it? Visit the site to donate.

    It only detected magnetic metals; I lost a rare earth metal. Nothing. I don't like this app, really.

    It actually works- Usually a metal detector cost around three thousand dollars but this is free!!!

    Using a new Moto Z2 Play. The app did detect the frame of my camping chair, and struggled to find a key I placed on the ground, but it couldn't detect my gold ring on even #9. I was able to get ghost hits on a rock and ground. Maybe it detects well for some of you, but I don't need to find my camping chair. Too many false readings and not enough positive finds.
