A Google user: “This app looks great but unfortunately it is completely useless. When I face in the direction I know to be North the compass reads West so it is a full 90 degrees off. And there is no way to adjust it. Junk. Glad I didn't have to pay anything for it. Uninstall. After consultation with the manufacturer and following their adjustment procedures this app does appear to be much more accurate. Hope it continues to perform as well as it is today. I have adjusted my rating accordingly.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Mr. Completely: “Compared the app to a basic lensatic compass and was fairly accurate. Noticed about a 10 degree difference in location but TBH I'm not sure if that speaks for the app or the quality of the compass itself. 10 degree difference isn't much over a short range, but a professional, or someone doing long range land nav is going to be using something else as a primary. Great for basic or backup land nav.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Seems to need calibrating often, but that's very easy & quick, and it tells you if calibration has been done. And for me, it always calibrates. Screen compass is dramatic looking (very nice), easy to read with lots of detail. You can read it degree by degree. I have *not* compared it with my traditional type non- digital backpacking compass, but this one acts very similarly. Like it a lot.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Used it most recently for installing a TV antenna. Trying to pick up stations 74 miles away. Used a location TV station map to determine distance and compass direction. Pointed the antenna using the compas, went in and turned on the tv only to find it was dead on and I can receive 36 digital channels. I can't beat that. Great product with a very high degree of accuracy.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “This app continually told me that north is south and south is north, until I discovered a trick. After opening the app, turn the phone over, so that the screen faces the floor and is parallel with the floor. Then when you turn the phone so that the screen faces upwards again, you will see that the app has corrected itself. No need to go to Google Maps.” – 5/5 in Play Store

john mason: “Works great...keeps me from getting lost. I do a lot of relic/artifact hunting in large, dense, and remote wooded areas where it's easy to get turned around and sometimes headed in the wrong direction.

A Google user: “I have zero sense of direction and have been using a transit app to navigate the city I'm in to catch busses etc. Only problem is when I was instructed to catch the bus in a particular direction I was sometimes uncertain of where to go. This compass app is simple and intuitive and has helped me to instantly know which direction I am facing and moving in so I can better navigate. Thanks!!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Nick C (RandoCommando): “It does EXACTLY as it claims. It's a compass. But it is a VERY nice compass with no confusing mess or whatnot. I don't need my compass app to connect with my car and my fridge and and and... I just want to combine tools where I can if it's simple and practical? This is both. Kudos to the devs. There ARE a few extra "skins" for the compass they offer for a small fee.. but they are nice and actually useful skins as they add minor features that may be a big deal to someone?

A Google user: “EXCEPTIONALLY ACCURATE IN DIRECTION I'm really bad in direction, telling which is north, south, east and west, and having this compass really helps me out. it's easy to use, large enough to read and determine where each direction is. only thing is, the numbers oftentimes change too rapidly which can be confusing, but other than that, it's very convenient. A must have for everyone!!!!” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Tested it against a real compass and the readings from the app after calibration were as per the compass. No-adds :) trustworthy as it uses no permissions unless you want to use true north, in which case you can enable location. and its free:) Though after performing the figure of 8 to calibrate, I was expecting the app to detect it was calibrated and put out a pop-up with a sound to actually indicate calibration is complete.” – 5/5 in Play Store

The maps are very impressive and the compass calibrated itself very quickly the first time and is very accurate. The location finder is great and being able to share the location will be a valuable safety tool. The graphics and color schemes are very user friendly. This app has everything I need and minus the things don't. *****” – 5/5 in Play Store

Dawn Avila: “So far, so good. I like it. This will suit my purposes just fine. Easy to use, and visually easy to read. But, I don't like the ads trying to switch between each of the modes/screens.

A Google user: “I thought it would be handy to have just in case, especially where I live. However, it seems to have issues if you're in just such an area that would need it. I live in the mountains and it has difficulty staying accurate and the compass moves extremely slow trying to keep up with even minor movement or jumps well past the amount moved.

Tried doing the move in an 8 thing to calibrate it and I sometimes get either 170°off or 20°off for up to 15 seconds before it reverts to 60° off. Update: Managed to calibrate the system somehow in Google maps, so it's perfect in this app, but this app now always tells me it needs recalibration because it's no longer 60° off.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jeroen Baert: “Simple. No ads, no nagging, no annoyances, just does what it says in the description. A breath of fresh air between dozens of other questionable apps. Open source as well. Thanks!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Johnnie J: “I can't imagine what sensors in a phone could detect direction, but it appears EXTREMELY accurate. No annoying ads. Phone does need to be close to horizontal position to work most effectively, meaning it's hard to mount in a car for best visible position.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Katja Enman: “Keeps asking for pin 10 times in a row before I can access my data. Sometimes unlock screen pops up without numbers, delete buttons etc. Very inconvenient! Every now and then it works, but usually it gives you hell with all the unnecessary unlock screens” – 2/5 in Play Store

I want to see this app do better so that I can spend less time around with the Authentication I don't believe it makes it more secure. it keeps kicking me out of the app it doesn't log me in I'm just frustrated” – 2/5 in Play Store
