    Compass 1.1.1 released. Big Changes!

    • Introduced sensor fusion on devices with a gyroscope. This is a really big change. The result is a completely not wobbling compass arrow, when the device is not moved.
    • Changed the low-pass filter algorithm for Android 2.2 with a better one that is more responsive and is compatible with the new sensor delay option.
    • The compass now chooses the best sensors for your device for calculating the compass degree.
      • Sensor Fusion: For devices with Android 2.3 or higher and a gyroscope
      • Accelerometer/gravity and compass: For devices without a gyroscope or with Android 2.2
    • Added new settings option for the sensor delay. You can now decide at which rate the compass gets new values from the sensors. The lower this rate the less battery is consumed. If the compass does not work on your device, try setting a lower sensor delay.

    It depends. What do you mean with peppery? The compass works without GPS und Network Location. Consider that you only get magnetic north without GPS and Network Location.

    If you didn't open the app there is no way the compass could possibly use your battery. There is no service running in the background. The compass uses your battery only when it's open, because the sensor will be unregistered when the app is hidden. So there shouldn't be any battery usage when the compass is hidden.

    Thanks for the screenshots. Well, it's strange. Did you close the app with the home button or with the back button?

    Would you like to send me a bug report over the app? I'm not sure i can fix this, because it works on my devices, but the bug report would be helpful while trying to fix it.

    It looks like that the sensors don't get unregistered when the app is closed. Thats a bit strange, because even if the app would not unregister the sensors, Android definetely would, when the app is removed from memory. So i think the app remains in memory for a long time on your device.

    PS: Thanks for the screenshots. They are helpful.

    Compass 1.2.0 released!

    • New sensor processing framework written. The sensor processing backend was completely rewritten based on all combined experiences of previous versions. The new backend makes new features and perfomance improvements possible.
    • Improved error reporting and error dialogs. Now i can analyse why some devices are not working. So if the compass does not work on your device send me a new bug report.
    • The network location icon now shows if the network location is enabled. Before it showed if the wifi was enabled

    Compass 1.2.1 released!

    • Fixed: Bug prevented compass from testing if a sensor exists.

    Compass 1.2.2 released!

    • Fixed: Compass didn't work on devices with no GPS and no network location support.
    • Click on the true north label now opens the GPS and network location settings
      do. Now the user gets informed, when he presses on the true north label or the icons and no
      GPS and no network location is supported.
    • The support was simplified. The support button in the menu and in the settings now opens a support dialog. The user
      can directly enter his message and send it.
    • Overall improved message dialogs
