Quite good I didn't calibrate that... so I got a bad result... after calibrating, this app indicated the right direction in comparison of my real expensive compass... the difference is only 30-40 degrees... not bad indeed... ☺

Works good. Mostly works fine. Sometimes, it shows wrong reading. Rarely. But we cannot expect more than this from a smart phone app. Its better than most apps. I recommend to download it.
