Title: Gem ID APP.
Post by: Ranger Itchy on March 27, 2021, 11:24:14 AM
Hi Guys,


Does anybody remember about 4-5 years ago there was a Gem Identification phone App. advertised on this site.


I had this app. on my Phone, it was great for identifying stones, but unfortunately I had to reset my phone and lost all my apps.


I can't remember what it was called to re-download it, if somebody has it on there phone or can remember what it was called, can you let me know please, It would be much appreciated!


Cheers Ranger Itchy beers

Hi xcvator,


Thanks for that! I've been to google play looking for the app. but not found the specific one I was looking for.


I was just hoping somebody still had it on there phone or knew what it was called.

Sorry, my sleuthing antennae must be on the blink. I've tried multiple searches and not coming up with any for gem ID. Only things have been weather and location.
Have you searched through GO?

Sent a search result link on GO via pm. Maybe it's in there somewhere?

I'm pretty sure that if you can't find it 'hoose, it's not out there!

Damn!!!


Searched the play store and got no results!


Must have been withdrawn from sale!


My only other hope is an old android I have that still has it loaded on it. I charged it yesterday, it keeps asking now for a PUK code and Pin, I don't know either at the moment but looking into it!!

MetDia Gem still appears to be available on the Amazon App Store, seems like it is no longer maintained though.
