Looking for smartphone app
I found that Minelab has a cool app for the iPhone, HOWEVER, it does not work on other smartphones (or maybe my phone is smarter than I am?). Anyhow, the Minelab app canbe found here Apps - Minelab's metal detecting iPhone apps
My question is simple - does anyone know of a similar app for non-Apple smartphones?

I have the Minlab app on my Samsung GS2, and I got it off the app store that's called the play store now for free and works great.
I am assuming you are using android.

I just got the "Lucid" yesterday - my first smartphone. I miss my flip phone as I am not figuring this one out yet. The Minelab app I saw on a friend's phone and thought it was ideal for how I want to document my finds. If you have it on a non-iPhone I guess I just need to figure out how to get it working on mine. Thanks for clarifying that I am not out of luck yet with this app.

I sure hope the app developer isn't capturing our finds locations!

I have the Minelab app and I love it. I have the iPhone but I know it works for other phones. PS...dont report your finds at the site you are hunting, wait until you get home

I finally cracked the code and got installed on my phone. The Minelab site is deceptive in that it states specifically "iPhone". I managed to get it loaded just as CMARACING told me (from "play store"). Now I just need to get out and hunt! Thanks to all!

I've been using Minelab for a while now and still have not found an app that I like more for the iPhone. I basically use that and the magicjack app more than anything else!

Is THIS what you're looking for? https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...0ubWluZWxhYiJd
I downloaded it, then discovered that it's for an E-Trac. I have an X Terra 70 so I deleted it. Hope it's what you're looking for.

I've have that Minelab app for a couple months but I'll be damned if I can get it to do anything.. I guess haven't had the desire to figure it out
Maybe it's time to stop not doing what you pretended you can do and can't, and start doing the thing that you can't do, but can no longer pretend that you can.
