Stud Detector™

for Android™


Stud Detector allows you to easily find metal framing studs, screws, and nails in walls. This simple to use application will help you hang pictures and art, as well as anything else that requires strong support. Tablets and phones are both fully supported! Be sure to read the short help section (accessed from the question mark icon) for detailed instructions on how to operate Stud Detector most effectively.
