Hammad 17-03-2012

Metal Detector is a handy iPhone application that can help users detect metal objects. Unlike other applications, the Metal Detector app is real and can detect metal objects like iron, steel, etc.

The app has an adjustable sensitivity and makes an audible sound signal if the sensitivity reaches a medium level. The phone needs to be shook once to be calibrated if you intend to use the device again.

The app makes use of the magnetometer on the iPhone to find interference with the compass to detect metal objects.  Just hover the backside of your mobile, the area under the camera, over the metal and the app should find the metal and there should be an increase in sensitivity.

Currently, the app only works with iOS 4 or later on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.


  • Convert your handy iPhone into a metal detector.
  • Use the tiny magnetometere inside iPhone to find metal – there is interference in signals when a metal comes into contact.
  • Adjustable senstivity.

    Thanks for sharing this application and I tried this app on my iPhone and It really worked very well but it's failed to detect metal sometime but I am using a metal detector by Zorpro at my office and It works really well and detects almost every metal.
