This is a compass application for iPhone 3G. The electronic compass is needless.
This application uses GPS.
1. stop walking. touch the start button.
2. Please walk straight . The compass begins to move.
The more it walks, the more accurate it becomes.
3. if you became tired, stop walking. touch the stop button.
It can know azimuthal (direction) by only these three steps.
The full spectrum can be used free of charge.
There is an error margin depending on the accuracy of GPS. Please acknowledge it beforehand.
This is a free version. Free version and paid version, there is no difference in terms of features. Ads do not like you and I am happy to download the paid version. Please serch "sumyapp".
Get it it's simple and it works.
I wish this was a little bit more like the compass on iPhone 3GS with no instructions and no " please wait,walk straight," you should put that on an "i" button. And also no with map button Other than that
I love it. I tried many compass apps and this one works best. I only wished it moved more likethe 3GS compass just a little closer and then it would br 5 stars
The app actually worked for me. It's a bit slow, although it works somewhat. BTW: I have an iPod Touch 2G and it works.
i would give u five stars if you correct it more accurate
The developer's primary language appears not to be English, so I am wondering whether some of the negative reviews relate to the fact that the instructions for the use of this app aren't all that clear? As far as I can determine this app DOES NOT provide continuous compass updates. To use, one needs to 1. wait until a GPS signal is obtained. The "please wait a little, outside message." 2. Then one needs to walk in a straight direction for about 20 meters. The app will generally tell you the distance you need to walk. 3. Once sufficient distance is attained, the compass will "lock", showing your heading. 4. If you want to determine a new heading, press the stop button and then the start button (actually the same button with different labeling. And repeat the procedure. I assume for the best accuracy, that in the configuration screen "accuracy of GPS" - normal should be tapped. Hope this helps
It works just fine on my iPhone 3G. I probably won't have need to use it often but will be handy to have if i need it.
Downloaded this in NYC after I dropped my real compass. Worked fine. Don't knock it till you try it.
this app is so good. I got lost and I got home with this app
Waste of time it just sits there showing a picture without moving
Spent a good hour trying to calibrate this compass walking. Waiting...waiting...waiting...waiting. Walked some more, waited some more and never got it calibrated. Good as a Gag gift to watch a friend walk & wait for an afternoon. Worst. App. Ever.
The app is free but my time is not. Can I get reimbursed for wasting my time on this piece of crap? Apple brags about all the apps. I think they mean quantity over quality.
Does not work
Wait 2m, wait 5m, wait 16m. I don't think so. That's ALL i got. Never any results. I don't think so. Deleting the app. Waste of time.
glad it was free!
Told me I was facing north when I was facing south. Was never even close.
This is a waste of time. If u want to know which way is north, download The Weather Channel app and you'll get the weather and in the bar up top an arrow points to the north and u can find the other directions from there.
POS. Waste of time
I'll pay someone .99 to remove from my phone. Don't waste your time!
The title explains it! Waste of time!!!!
5 stars down
I compared this to other compass apps, and its reading was always very far off. I have iOS 3.1.3. I understand that GPS only works outside, and that you have to significantly change your position to get a compass reading.
It is so hard to figure out how to work this thing. Granted, you have to walk a little for the app to figure out your motions against the map to tell you where the north and south are. But, I couldn't produce a viable result that would be practical after walking quite a bit. It is easier to just figure that out with regular navigation apps.
You really shouldn't waist your time on this it's crap!!
1star for this app...
Please help! This app doesn't even deserve the 1 star I gave it!
This is the worst app ever it doesn't work y did apple pass the app I have no clue
It is unusablely slow and I don't like that you have to go outside to work
Slow, works only half the time.
you must be kidding, such a lame shouldn't appear on iTunes
The compass doesn't work. It takes approximately 5 minutes to load, and then doesn't adjust it's position when you do.
Does not work.
It simply doesn't work!
Never could pinpoint my location. Glad it was free because it's totally useless waste of my time. Don't bother.
GOOD THING IT'S FREE. NOT VERY GOOD. TELLS YOU TO WALK IN A STRAIGHT LINE. HAD TO WALK ABOUT A 1/4 MILE OR MORE TO GET IT WORK. GOING TO TAKE APP OFF MY PHONE.
This interface is terrible, I followed all directions, and I walked twoards the North, And it told me North was to my right! THIS IS A FAIL!!
This compass is way off. Without the Atlantic Ocean to confirm my directionals I would have been completely lost. This is not reliable or accurate. Delete it asap!
horrible, never worked. Already deleted from my iphone
This application is horrible. It doesn't work and I deleted it after screwing around with it for a half hour.
This is a waste of time and space! Don't bother downloading it!!!
I would have given this less than one star but that is th lowest allowed! This is quite simply, useless! Not worth your time. Dosen't work, if you NEED a compass get a 3gs.
