Unlike the metal detectors at Terminals, Airports, Subways, Railway Stations, or other promises you must have crossed through Giant metal detectors. What if you build your own Pocket Metal Detector? Yes you can transform your HTC HD2  the android powered phone into a metal detector. The Metal Detctor app for HTC HD2 is based on a simple theory but can detect tiny nails and pins.




How Does Metal Detector Work?



HTC HD2 has inbuilt compass ie magneto-inductive sensor, nowadays all smart phones have one. If you bring any metal object like nails, scissor, knife etc the compass will indicate the deviation, since the magnetic field changes due to influence of these magnetic material ie metal. The app is based on simple concept but tests revealed it to be powerful and accurate considerably.

I am optimist that Metal Detector app will support more Compass enabled phones soon.
               It's not just iphone which has cool apps, Android is rising and we have to see tons of apps more. So friends what do you say? Did you like this App?

I know you have something to say.
