Simply the best!! What do you want from an app like this?? Put simply, you would like it to work, you would like it to be accurate, you would like it to be consistent & would like it to represent good value for money. It ticks all the boxes for me, hence the 5 stars. Plus it works on the phone & my tablet which makes it a go anywhere app & could in certain situations, be a life saver. Galaxy Note 10.1 & Galaxy S5. Thank you Mr Developer, IMHO, an excellent app ;-)
Easily the best in its genre out there. User options are focused to core function so compulsive-obsessive screen pokers should look elsewhere, there are no shiny-shiny gimmicks here. CPs design is nicely thought out and professionally programmed. End result: the app pulls the best out of the limitations of mobile device tech hardware and really does do what it says on the tin - serving up optimal accuracy and useful info in an ease-of-use package. All cred to the developers for leaving me with no hesitation in shelling out for the pay version.
does what it says Fast and accurate. Only shortcoming for me. and I suspect most UK users who actually use it in field, is that location is not in GB Grid coordinates making it very difficult to use with all UK maps. Any chance of adding this as an option?
Fantastic App, one bug the auto-rotate enable / disable doesn't work I actually used your app to find a bug in another similar app, as it turns out they have some kind of math error in their app which gave true north 373 degrees instead of 360...lol...I used your app to calibrate my telescope to true north and it worked great!
Excellent layout Haven't tried in earnest yet but this compass fires up and works immediately. Would like to be able to damp the needle movement but in no way a detraction at all, just a personal preference. Cheers, Jon
Great app Great app. Here are my suggestions: Remove your logo, the calibrate and rotate buttons from top, and put them in the three dot menu, as they are basically just clutter on the main screen. Sort out the gps coordinates at the bottom: (the left justify, in full width container just looks wrong). Sort out the landscape orientation view (or remove it), as you have lots of unneeded bits showing up there. Finally, maybe look at adding an azimuth feature, 'compass' by RHB is a really good example of implementation.
- Changed: Removed 4 permissions the compass doesn't need anymore
- Fixed: GPS battery draining bug
- Fixed: Android 4.4.3 bug that prevented the compass arrow to be displayed correctly, when the ad banner was shown
- New Feature: Added location coordinates to the main screen
- New Feature: Replaced the GPS and NET icons with a magnetic field strength indication which is much more interesting for people using a compass
- Changed: Replaced the calibration tutorial with a better one
