Steady compass

Steady compass


This application is a magnetic compass whose main goals are the reliability and the ease of use.
Sensor data is treated by a Kalman filter in order to obtain superior stability in readings.
The design is simple without unnecessary glares and shadows to improve readability.
This compass is intended to be used in horizontal position.

In order to keep this as a 100% free product please give it a positive vote if you find it useful.

The application makes use of gyroscope sensor data on devices having this kind of sensor.
If the gyroscope option is grayed out, your device does not have this kind of sensor. Do not give a negative vote because of your device lacking such sensor.

If you are experiencing any issue, please contact the developer by mail.
Otherwise, it is impossible to get the necessary information to solve the problem.
Strange behaviours (such as continuous rotation) are due to sensor problems.
Calibrating the magnetic sensor or rebooting the phone does usually fix these problems.
The application just represents the data gathered by the sensors.

Simple & easy to read. No ad's. Very nicely done. I have this as Emergency way finder. Have to rip my magnetic cover off to use it for that. But that is expected.. No compass will work next to a magnetic phone case. LOL
