Jack Sparrow compass, inspired by famous Captain Jack Sparrow fictional character's Compass, is a unique compass because like the legendary compass it too doesn't points to the North (it can optionally do this too), but instead it points to the location thing you want most in the world with one condition that you must know the exact GEO coordinates of that location.
Plus it also shows the distance to the target location and shows your speed too. If that’s not enough, it also shows the magnetic fields around your device so you not only can detect the metals, but can also detect ghost and spirits (at least in theory).
Here are important features of this:
* Advance Compass
It's not only a basic compass which points to North or towards a static position, but it can point to the Magnetic North, True North, Qibla, and to unlimited locations of your choice. So, you can have it point to your home, office, school, college, favorite restaurant or any place where you want to go, and it will point to that location.
* Jack Sparrow Theme
It's based on Jack Sparrow's Compass theme and design. So, with its unique layout and features, you have very advance replica of the Jack Sparrow Compass which can points to location of your choice and you can change the target location any time too. A must have app for the Jack Sparrow's geeky fans.
* Distance and Speed
When pointing to target location, it also tells you the total distance from the target location. This way you can know the total distance of your college from home and vice versa. Plus if you are moving towards that location, it will also show your speed and will dynamically keep updating the in between distance as you keep moving (require GPS or internet). This can be handy in many cases. For example, you can park your car anywhere in the new area, store it location, and then can safely return back to it with help of distance, location pointer and speed measure features.
* Unlimited Locations Storage
You can store virtually unlimited source and target locations. The only limit is the memory of your phone.
* Google Maps Integration
This application integrate seamlessly with the Google Maps application. So you can easily get the route map from the Google for any of your stored source and target locations. Due to this, its even more advance than traditional Jack Sparrow compass because it not only points to that location, but also helps your in your navigation with maps.
* Robust Location Support
You can find your geographic coordinate and other details of the current location from the misc. supported sources like:
- GPS (Global Positioning System)
- GSM Cell Tower (need internet access to get the address from cell tower number)
