GPS Status

GPS Status


GPS Status is Essential, efficient and lightweight. It will not take more than 800k of memory. It's designed and developed with performance and efficiency in mind.

GPS Status also works without internet connection. (location share functionality might be limited)

GPS Status shows:
✔ unused/used satellites;
✔ speed (km/h or mph);
✔ altitude (meters or feet);
✔ accuracy (meteres or feet);
✔ latitude, longitude both in decimal and degrees format.

It also features a magnetic compass and the ability to share your current location with your friends or social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

You may also decide to share your current location via SMS, Hangouts or any other instant messaging app such as Whatsapp or Telegram.

Boookmarks
The very new feature of the newly released version is a bookmark section that lets you quickly review all your pinned location. Every bookmark will also come with a small arrow pointing toward that point.

Possible usages are:
✔ save your parking spot and find it later;
✔ save a good photo place;
✔ measure aerial space between two or more points

Known problems and solutions
The compass may move too fast or inconsistently. While this may be a bug of GPS Status, it has been proven many times to be a calibration issue. In order to properly calibrate your compass you should hold your phone one-handed and then move and twist your hand to virtually draw an 8 (eight).

Recent changes:
v3.0.2:
✔ Fixed accuracy bug
✔ Added contact support dialog
v3.0.1:
✔ Added 5 decimal precision
✔ Fixed Imperial conversion for accuracy
✔ Fixed bug causing crash

Simple, fast, but runs a service in the background Not sure why it leaves a service running, but it concerns me that it's using battery all of the time when I used the app only some of the time. Sharing feature is nice, let's you send current location to many apps. EDIT: Support reached out to me. But their reply address didn't work, I sent screenshots. Someone wrote me back saying they were connecting me to support, but didn't happen. Suspicious to me...
