Magnetic stud finder app puts an handy stud finder in everyone's pocket at no cost. Even if already having your own stud finder, this app provides a valuable second source. Magnetic stud finder app consists of a customized metal detector with a bubble level view. It can be used for both metal and wood studs. Steel nails/screws are used to fix drywall to the wood studs. Magnetic stud finder finds wood studs by identifying the location of nails and screws. The bubble level is another tool for handyman. The app can also be used as detector for all ferromagnetic objects.
To make the best out of it, it is very important to use this app properly. We provide help within the app. More information is provided in our website www.goldsequence.com. You can also see this instruction video
We have tested this app in multiple buildings with different phones. It works pretty well for drywall if used properly. Even if you cover the drywall with a extra layer of 1/4 inch thick ceramic tile, the app can still work. That being said, the app is not without its limits. This app won't work well if the variation of magnetic field strength becomes too weak to pick up. For example, if you live in a old house with plaster wall and the plaster layer is more than 1/4 inch thick, the app will probably not work well. Even if your house uses drywall, if the size of the drywall screws is too small, it could generate problems for this app. So we agree that this app is not for every house. However, we do believe that it can do good things for many people in many houses.

Somewhat works but keeps my GPS on. Why? Uninstalled.
Didn't work. Never detected my nail. HTC Evo
Very cool app. Finds the nails in my studs. Its these kind of innovative apps that are changing the world.
How cool is that? Sweet!
Love the idea of it, but why does it turn on my gps? And can't turn it off.
Wow.Really awesome app for small jobs like hanging pics.
I was worried it wouldn't work after reading reviews, but it worked just fine finding the studs in my office...
Yeah believe the negative reviews. I couldn't get it to work except to detect my refrigerator... guess they did what they could but fell short.
Doesn't work moto droid
