Good when it works I got this app year ago to aim my tv antenna and it worked well. Today after an update, its not so good. Used it 3 times and got a different north every time. One time was almost pointing south. Learn where your north is and when it works it works right. Please note the issue seems to be when coming out of sleep on my lg g5. If i use it for a few minutes it does correct itself.
Calibration is not explained Seems like it's going to be a great compass, it is pointing North as far as I know. But I wanted to calibrate and when I clicked on the calibration icon it just said look at the three steps and there were not 3 steps below, within the calibration icon area or any steps on how to calibrate otherwise I would have given this a 5 score. Please read explain or repost in your directions section under calibration what are the three steps that have been deleted from this area, to explain how to calibrate thank you
Compass app. It does what it actually says it can do no BS . No unnecessary intrusion into ones device so far. And accurate , great instructions on how to use. And if needed simple calibration, Best of all the cost. If there was a tip $ jar I would surely be one to use it.! My thanks. To you Mr. compass Man. Thank you,
Best compass app in the Play store Reading the reviews of this app and its Pro (ad-free) version, it is pretty obvious that this app is well made. I think the few bad reviews are caused by one of two things: a worthless e-compass (magnetometer) chip in the reviewer's phone, or a Google app installer issue. Neither of those problems can be controlled by the app developer, so gabenative deserves the full 5-star treatment in his reviews. Great job! I really do love this app, and while I rarely use it, it has come in handy one or two times.
Second Thoughts Great to start with 2 years ago then due to a problem with the phone all apps had to be deleted. Just reloaded it and had to delete it almost as soon as readings were unreliable. Conclusion : there's no such thing as a free lunch: pay for something if it works. If it dosen't. Get your money back
Works a lot better than I thought. It's on the money with the North Star. Wish I get the pro version Can't get pro version in U.S. ? by the way , find the Big Dipper the last two stars of the spoon will point to a faint star the first the first star of the Little Dipper that is Northstar
+ Fixed: Compass didn't start on devices without GPS or network location support
+ Improved: Removed permission ACCESS_WIFI_STATE, because it's not needed anymore
+ Improved: Improved messages of various dialogs to make them easier understandable
