Simply North




    Before we come up to the app details, let me tell you a little story; 3 months ago, I bought the new iPad with its really awesome retina display.

    It’s such a great product but there is still one thing I’m missing.
    Where is this lovely little compass which we all know from the iPhone?
    I can just tell you, I didn’t find it despite searching for it in the entire App Store!
    And on Android? You guess it, I also miss a clean and simple compass on Play Store.

    I just wanted a
    - simple user interface
    - without many buttons
    - no big advertisements and banners
    - built with love, like the original Apple compass
    - a universal app for both iPad and iPhone
    - and last but not least: retina graphics for all devices!

    I believe that there are so many people who have the same thoughts as I do, so I decided to build this App myself. I have worked so many nights to make it pixel perfect and I hope that you love the result!

    I almost forgot the rest of the features:
    - tiny size only 2MB
    - full Retina support for all devices
    - chose skin - black/white
    - tap on the coordinates to copy location+course to clipboard and use it wherever you like
    - swipe right/ left to convert the location coordinate between the three basic forms DMS, MinDec and DegDec. A must have for geocaching :)
    - swipe right/ left to display altitude and speed
    - swipe down or tap on BUSYBYTES to open the ABOUT-BOX

    Sincerely yours,
