    Nice graphics, plus speed and options are topnotch. A must-have app for anybody who needs reliable directional guidance in any situation. My go-to recommendation for #1 Android compass app.

    I can't get this app to do anything. It just sits there at 0 and 180 no matter what I do. Refund!

    Why is the premium version is 1.0.7 updated in June when the free is 1.1.4 and updated last week?

    Happy with Premium version that automatically & correctly sets Declination, giving accurate readings. However "Waiting for location from GPS" hangs forever even after selecting Datum closest to my place. A suggestion: allow manual & selective clearing of Bearings. Normally the first one is for the reference direction which I want to keep. A brief manual would be useful too
