Team review

" Useful magnetic compass. "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 8 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible with most Android devices running on.

Its weight is very light, less than a megabyte is sufficient to store and operate.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) is quite low. The application is either new, or limited to a specific area that only a few users are interested in.

Positive review Thank you! (Galaxy S4) by anonym
I've never done one of these reviews before, but this is honestly great. I really love the fact that this app in particular doesn't take any special permissions with my phone. It's so refreshing! I really enjoy it. 5/5

Positive review Works great by anonym
And doesn't require any permissions! Thank you very much! 5/5
Positive review No ads! by anonym
Almost every compass app on the play store has ads. This is the second one I could find with no ads. The first one though promising didn't work on my s4. This one works perfectly. The phone does need to be flat, but I can live with that. 5/5
Positive review Good simple compass by anonym
Accurate and smooth with no extra junk. 5/5
Positive review Perfect - on Google Nexus 4 by anonym
Minimal size, clear, uncluttered, free ... and it works. A single enhancement I'd like to see - and this goes for most apps - is an exit option. 5/5
Neutral review Good guesses, not always right by anonym
Actually points to the north most of the time but can also be horibly wrong. Do not trust this app when lost and searching your way back home 3/5
Neutral review Basic by anonym
It show direction but you can not turn dial or mark headind, so it do work but os not so useful. 3/5
Positive review It works, it's free, it's ads free. by anonym
Well, I'd be happy to pay for something like this. It just works and doesn't require weird permissions to access your personal data or even wi-fi (as it's ads free). Thanks! 5/5
Positive review Needs updating by anonym
Worked brilliantly until Android 4.3 on my Nexus 7. Now it just goes crazy. Note that is not the only compass for which this is true. Too good to lose for long, do please update for 4.3 soon. 5/5
Positive review Great by anonym
Its great. And accurate. Only thing your phone should have magnetic sensor for its working. 5/5
Positive review Best compass for android. by anonym
This is the only phone compass I might depend on for navigation. It would be cool though to have more skins. Like an old pirate compass skin! But it works great. 5/5
Positive review So far so good by anonym
I like far. No ads was one primary thing for me. Also the simplicity of it is perfect. It does what it's supposed to do. I don't have the gyroscope on my phone (older model) but the magnetic works just fine. I work inside a building filled with brick and steel and it still gives me a good direction. So far, impressive. I like it. 5/5
Positive review Simple and easy to use by anonym
This compass loads fast has no ads and it does everything that supposed to do what more could you ask. 5/5
Positive review Just what I wanted by anonym
It works, it doesn't need to connect to the internet or read any personal data, and there are no ads. Perfect! 5/5
Positive review This One is a 'Spread The Word' by anonym
This is for You if you want No ads, understandable in less than 10 minutes (I'm not an Engineer) appealing interface, Indicators are marked N & S, no annoying flickering btw modes and loads instantly each time you tap it. I tried smart compass prior to Steady and it was a disaster. Only suggestion I have is rather the triangular East marker it would be more pronounced if Marked with an E, for people like me ;) 5/5
Positive review Perfect! by anonym
Free of charge, free of advertisement, no unnecessary permissions, simple interface, great accuracy. There is no better compass app on the market than this one 5/5
Positive review Simple, accurate. The best i found. by anonym
Awesome app.. Safest! Needs no permission at all. 5/5
Positive review Kecioren by anonym

Neutral review Missed it by that much... by anonym
Simple, clean, no adds .. For that I give five stars. Reliable. 3. Worked great after initial install. Then ran app later.. Needle was all wonky. I know where N is... It don't . and no calibration setting. 3/5
