Cute idea but... When I switch it to True north or vice versa nothing changes. Ne'er mind, my other compass apps off G.Play perform that simple feature, where optioned, no problem. So this one got itself uninstalled. Bye bye and good luck. ADDENDUM: Many thx for the quick and informative reply from the Dev. I'm sure the advice could help others. Accordingly I have upped rating to 4 stars. Good luck.

Great app when it works on the device. I have found this to be a great compass application on the devices it works on, my galaxy tab is one of them. It makes finding bearings easy and accurate.

Great! Very useful. I compared it with my compass and found it to be very accurate. It's nice to have on hand. Since I always have my phone, I'm never without a compass either.
