Metal Sniffer, a Metal Detector app for Android

Introducing Metal Sniffer for Android


So I made my first Android app, an full-fledged magnetic field sensor aka metal detector. It’s nothing too spectacular, but I thought you guys might find it useful.

Developers have moved off of the desktop bandwagon to where the action is, on the web and mobile platforms.
