    "This seems like a waste. I don't understand how an app can help locate metal, unless there is some type of plug in that sends waves to the metal underground. I would think that if anyone is serious about finding metal they would just invest in a hand held metal detector NOT an app. "

    "Nice compass but the metal detector part has got to be a hoax. That would require more scanning ability than a smartphone is built with, right? I mean it's not just like you can take a picture of the earth and your phone can magically xray into it and determine if there's metal."

    "This looks really cool. I didn't know such an app existed. I'd like to download this right now and give it a try. It probably isn't as effective as a hand held metal detector but I think it'd be great for the casual hobbyist who wants to try metal detecting out before taking a leap into an investment of an actual device."
