Featured in “Best Android Apps, The Guide for Discriminating Downloaders”, published by O’Reilly Media, Compass by is the most popular compass app available.

Compass view with location display and geo-tagged notes lets you not only steer in the right direction, but view maps and keep notes of the places you visit.

• Save your favorite places (home, work place, school, restaurant, shops, etc.) or even your car location. Navigate back to them later with Google Navigation.
• Capture and view your location-based notes in your area using the free Catch app.

• Antique dial, direction names adjust for user's language.
• Outer dial can be manually rotated, green inner dial shows direction name in user's language, crisp pointer movement with no overshoot.
• Red section shows magnetic compass information including direction, magnetic field strength and declination.  Green sections show GPS-based information including direction of movement, speed, altitude, and accuracy estimate.  Pitch and roll indicators.
• Red outline on black styling for easy reading in low-light conditions.

Review This app is horrible! One minute it says your facing north and then all of a sudden it says your facing east. Tried it on the highway traveling south, the compass said i was heading east. A total failure for accuracy.
