Good compass. I like the fact that it tells you if your compass is calibrated or not. This feature helps me in my other apps that require accurate GPS location

I am not a specialist for compass's, but I have a very good impression of this app. I does all I can imagine from a compass. It is transparent, is easy to work with. Thank you!

This app is just showing flashing inert compass image and not being functional at all. Totally not fit for purpose.

Use it mainly when I get notifications for ISS passes if I'm not in my usual location. Also handy when I'm doing a bit of walking or cycling round the local hills. I know where everything is but the compass is useful for reference.

Often comes in handy when out and about in the forest for a long walk. Just head that way to find a road.

I have been using this service for several years now and have not had any problems with it except for a few calibrations. If you want a good and dependable compass ,then you need to look no further 😉.

Always works excellent, use it to set up telescope, when traveling to double check my cars digital system,but most of all when I garden for plant placement.

Its awesome, took 1 star off because of all the ads around the compass when its open, too much ads. If you fot rid of the ads it will be 5 stars

Accuracy is right on target. Easy to configure using the instructions. Also has a bubble level in the middle of the compass. Recommended.

Beware. I had been having issues with my screen not working right (not able to use fingers to zoom in on map), as well as my keyboard geeking out. Couldn't figure it out, but as soon as I uninstalled this app everything started working like normal. Not sure how this app managed this, but I certainly don't think it was a coincidence.

Very Good App. Works well with Android. Its very useful to find direction at any time. Accuracy is good. Easy to use. Easy to install. I checked many apps but it was fruitful and solved my purpose. Recommended for everybody who needs or know accurate directions at different occasions. Thanks to all developers /engineers to provide public such a good app.

I live on the side of a hill and for years swore the second story hardwood master bedroom floor leaned with the hill, nightly straining my left shoulder. Turns out the floor is perfectly level. Replaced the bed. Lean is gone. I can lift my arms above my head again, See? Thanks Free Compass App!

I was traveling due East and no amout of calibration could get it tonstop saying I was going west, or north west. I did find that if i turned only about 45 degrees to north east it would complelty rotate to due east,(although it was actually a north easterly direction.) but as soon as i went back to due East it would be off again slding back and forth between northwest west and southwest, with about a 30 degree level of variation.

I use this compass often for amateur botanical study and to confirm southwest exposure in homes I'm looking at. Does all I require from a compass. It would not work well for map and compass and wildland firefighting, mainly due to awkwardness of phone.

Help find my bearings & direction in the woods of SE Oklahoma. Walked in the dark heavy fog & cloud cover. Was turned around. Help me know the direction of my movement cloud cover so heavy couldnt see sun for reference. This help me find my way back to jeep. Was a public hunting area was 35,000 acres of heavy woods & swamps! Saved my Bacon! Thanks!

Seems good. Ads are unobtrusive, a bit of your screen space at the top. The app warns if your compass needs recalibrating, unlike some that just give you a bad heading.

This is one amazing design! I was looking for a mobile compass and stumbled upon this one. I read several reviews and decided to give a try. I am thrilled to say the least. I was able to determine due west inside a building without a clear line of sight. The accuracy is real time and very responsive. You will not be disappointed!!!

I put it by a real compass and it was way off. If I had to actually use this in an emergency I would not make. At first I thought it was cool but then it wasn't even close to the real compass. According to this compass the sun sets in the north so yeah, now you know how good it is.

This app , is really good, cause it tells you every angle there is, a complete 360 angles if you can see it that way And you can use it everywhere possible , for instance, use it , in the car or, hiking and on your bycicle , if you have one, even for short walk s , you can't go wrong with ,this app,if you understand it ? Which I do it s a great app ! It's very easy to read , iv known how to read a compass since I was a kid , I learned how to read a old fashioned compass

Simple, perfect compass. No bells and whistles, but you don't need any if you need a compass. Just some small tweaks, like magnetic field strength, true and magnetic heading and such. If you ever used a real compass you will feel at home here straight away.

It's just ok. It's not perfectly accurate. Depends how strong the magnetic field is at the moment. Need to calibrate phone to get the strongest magnetic field at the moment you use it. Honestly, I don't need it at all. I was just curious how good it works in case my wife might want a compass app for her phone.

This compass app actually works! I've been trying to find a good compass app and this app was, like, my 4th try! Yay! I'm so excited (maybe a tad too much)! 100%! I would give more stars if I could! This app actually feels like it was created by experts! I still can't get over how it works and the other apps I tried didn't properly work like a compass... I was ready to just give up and use a real compass. But yay! 😁⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've already recommended it to all my Navy my Marine and military friends they love it there addicted to it already we know Easton West and San Diego cuz we can see the sun everyday but North and South you always lose track of and it's real simple it's right on your phone and it's real accurate it's incredible and the prices at that the best you can be free but it's something you need

I have been having trouble with accuracy lately. It seems to be off by almost 90°, where North is where West used to be. The app suggests calibration, and shows it to be highly accurate in all aspects, except it's 90°off. It lacks a means of contacting the developer, so I suppose I'll have to contact my cell phone provider. I'm looking forward to this getting resolved, as the app has usually been balls on accurate. (it's an industry term! 😉)

A great app with more info than just direction of North - very useful. The ads are not particularly distracting or obstructive but I would pay a modest fee to remove them. The layout is clear and easy to read at a glance, and the functionality is responsive (on a Sony Xperia) Recommended. Addition: An option for decimal degree coordinates would be great.

I would give this app ( -5 ⭐) but I see no option. Installed fine but could not detect magnetic sensor. Reading previous critical reviews validated that I wasn't the only person getting the error, the problem has been consistent. In my opinion it would be wise for developer to caution user that this bug has not been addressed. It would save developer from getting negative reviews if this issue of "Cannot detect magnetic sensor" unless cautioned or flagged before user begins installing the app.

Cool app. I downloaded it because I got a Vagus Nerve Simulator and wanted to check out how it would affect my phone and how I could manipulate the compass, but I didn't expect it to actually detect a magnetic field. I'm wearing a magnet on my wrist so of course it's pretty high but wow still amazing. Five stars, very good.

The compass is always off by no.less than 14 degrees. To be fair, I always thought i was asking too much of an app like this. My real compass go berzerk next to my phone. How do you engineers think you can discern a weak ass magnetic field from inside a larger fluctuating one????

Finally, with this app I have corrected some arrangements of things in our home to conform with my personal beliefs in feng shui, and become more at ease to fimd that actually I have been sleeping facing East all along with the position of my bed. For quite a while I planned to go out to find a compass, until I checked google. It is amazing how an app can be like this, a compass. I just hope that it is accurate. I will try to check it with the sun today. Thank you.

Absolutely garbage. The compass doesn't work and when i turn to go north, it freezes for a sec and then the N turns to the complete opposite direction of where i am, not because i'm going the wrong way, but decides to reset. Again, garbage and in general phone compasses don't work.

It is a pretty good app. It show the most accurate direction. And it even shows our location with latitude and longitude, even tells our address and amazing thing is it can show our speed when moving!!! Good app

If the compass is not working it is a problem with your device or the battery. Sometimes a compass not working is a sign of a bad battery causing high magnetic fields. This is not this app's fault. This app is good and does not continuously updated like many annoying apps and the developer has added features over time. Please try to be smart when reviewing someone's work who is providing you a free application. Thank you.

I like this one it's quite cool it would be very interesting to see if it could be maybe just take the circle and the north south east west and have them superimposed over Google Maps at a very translucent way or are fine line way so there was no conflict and no information blocked God bless you and have a Merry Christmas

An extra feature would be the bearing and distance to a location. Example Exeter, New York, Berlin, Aukland, etc. the altitude is completly useless. at sea level it says 157 ft asl!!! The altitude does not work. At sea level it says 350 feet!!

First time I have used this app. So far, completely impressed. Got it in my phone to help me locate and scan channels for my new TV antenna. Sure seems like it will do the job I need. Convenient, as we drive across the country twice a year, and often wished we had a compass. Now we do!

It a excellent Compass. At least it tells me the directions😍 So a give this Compass 5🌟 I checked with a Compass that i have that does not run with the computer of the phone, it's a normal compass. And the directions that this Compass says is very true to the compass that is not connected to power. I would rather have a compass like this one and the one that they have advanced in the App Store. Thank you so much for making my day😍

Hmmm. This is a difficult one to comment on. How does your Compass perform?🙄 All I can say to that is, very well😳. It does what it says on the 'box'. The hardest thing to explain to the Woman of the house is, why, when compass is activated is North always in a slightly different place to the last time it was activated! Would you please do me the honour of explaining it as well, as I think she is more likely to believe your guys. I'm just a qualified mech/Lec tech. Much obliged. Cheers Spida👍

I go on random drives on the weekends. Just head north, west, and like that. Taking back roads, Depending on cloud cover, I sometimes dont know which way I am going. I bust out the compass instead of my liquid one, which is affected by the cars electrical system, to get oriented. Good clear display, once I know which way I am headed, drive on !

Very good design and UI, loved it. Just one request though: * Please add an option to show direction to an address or geolocation (not navigation just direction relative to present location). * Also I loved that minimal level indicator there please add some indicator for when it is perfectly leveled. I know actually these are two requests but I'd really appreciate it if you do atleast the first one ^_^

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.

Rubbish, absolutely rubbish, the compass I use for work is pointing north but this digital compass needle is saying north is behind me , it's pointing South , calibration changes nothing, compass now decided East is north ,, useless waste of time , don't bother with this bc its useless. As an archaeologist I need to be able to rely on any compass i use , these app compass are not even vaguely accurate.

After looking for a great compass app, this has been the best so far. Excellent design and easy to recalibrate if the phone gets out of whack, ensuring its accuracy. However, there is no way to remove the ads...I would pay money and give 5 stars for this ability. Come on, man.

Works well but calibration is a pain, and doesnt always go as planned. But aside from the app delivers what it promises when properly calibrated. Is it because i am in the southern hemisphere that calibration is difficult? many navigation apps are Northern-centric with features that dont work well below the Equator, or near the IDL.

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.

Compared the app on my phone with a mechanical compass also car's GPS. Located the side of my house towards east, good saw morning direction of rising sun. Outside drove in my car towards work and observed the pointer move as I navigate thru junctions 4 way stops and highway Reference tool was accurate Garmin GPS which was installed on car. Note there is magnetic north & true north. Bottom line it does work, but is not 100% accurate so not too dependable. Accuracy deviates off by 15°

visually attractive looking but gave random results, sometimes it boots up and gives a reasonably accurate reading but at other times the reading is totally erroneous and unreliable. however, since it was a freebie and there's obviously a lot of effort gone into its production it does seem churlish to criticise.

So far, so good. Upon first use, reading was about 180° off. After following the directions for calibration, it's as accurate as any of my other four compasses. I haven't even gotten into the rest of the settings yet, but I'm sure that once I get it completely set up, its usefulness will expand to at least a small degree.

Impressive and fully user friendly day one. I wanted a back up to my Protrek watch compass as I live in rural Thailand where it's easy to get lost in jungle when on dirt roads. As well as an accurate bearing this also gives my exact GPS grid reference, plus a gradient meter. My Fortuner charges my phone on the move so I can now get stuck anywhere no matter how remote and call for help with the precise location good to 20m. In my case this is something that could literally be a life saver.

The Compass is hoghly inaccurate and places Nprth in different directions !!! Even when it is levelled it changes when you turn the phone to the riggt or left.

The App is obviously excellent, well to me it is, but I have just this minute downloaded it, I haven't a clue if it's even a free App or not, it went through that fast, but its got everything, I'm not really bothered if I'm charged a few quid, I would prefer that than the annoying Ads running all my work continuously, but no matter how good it is I'll bin it rather than be plagued with the Ads.
