About this app

Positional is a location based app that utilizes the phone's GPS hardware and fetches various details of the current latitude and longitude data like Altitude, Speed, Address and similar other information and show it in easily understandable format to the user. Alongside this main functionality of being a location app, Positional also provides a separate panel for Compass, Level, Trail and Clock, and they serve their own purpose as the name suggests.

Compass provides info related to direction using Geomagnetic field, Clock fetches the time related information based on the current location, time zone and also sun's information like Sunset, Sunrise, Twilight and many other info while the level can be used to get the plain deviation info and for many other purposes. Trail can be used for marking locations on the map and create a travel journal anywhere on the map using many contextual icons.

On top of all the core functionality, Positional is a highly polished app and provides another layer of a very carefully handcrafted minimal designs that organizes every information in a very pleasant way with amazing and beautiful physics based animations and still maintains to do what a location app is supposed to do.

Positional's app interface is customized completely independent of the native APIs and everything is created completely from scratch to give the app a unique design structure and add many features without using too much device memory, making the whole app very lightweight.

Problem is address not given and buildings not clearly labeled. All this had over my 5 dollar My Location was an electronic level feature seldom to be ever used. All this app did was make me glad getting full version of My Location after comparing both side to side as mine showed correct address and building. However, my 4 dollar Solocator Pro also shows correct addresses and buildings.

I'm not getting your problem but you can always swipe up in the location panel, there's a dedicated address column where the app will show you full address of your current location. If the labels on map is missing I will suggest you to try toggling the "Show Labels" from the menu and the map will load full labels of everything around you.

I don't understand this app. The GPS section shows me a map with a blue arrow .. and that's all. No info, nothing. Also, realise that many of us use 24-hour clock and seeing am/pm is infuriating.

I'm sorry you are having trouble with this app, for the information problem you can turn on labels from the GPS menu and it will enable all the information in your surroundings with icons and labels, and 24 hour clock is also there in clock panel along with every other information. I hope this will make things easier for you to understand :)
