Camera Compass


CAMERA COMPASS is an amazing way to measure direction in augmented reality view.

Camera Compass lets you measure directions by aim your camera at anywhere you want to measure. It works in portrait, landscape or any device's orientation. It performs direction measurement by using the built-in orientation sensor, acceleration sensor and magnetic sensor.

Camera compass is very useful in some situation especially when lower your head to see the compass is difficult and inconvenient to you. For example, when you are driving, riding, hiking, sailing, mountain climbing, jungle expedition, etc. There are an indicator on the compass view to indicates the verticality/tilt angle of the device.

Other than measure direction, it also detects the best network connection(GPS, 3G or Wifi) to retrieve your current location, coordinates, altitude and address data and display it on the screen to help you measure your current position accurately and steer in the right direction.
Camera Compass comes with high definition graphics and nice user interface design.

Coolest compass ever It's so fun and usefully helpful with a very nice military twist. I love it! I especially like the fact that it tells you where you are. Very handy in a strange area.
