    The following is a review of an app called Compass for android. An app in my opion should come standard on all Android powered phones. The app is fully featured in every way that I can think of. Short of talking to you it portrays everything you need to see and know in both standard and digital formats. Enjoy 6 different compass types and 4 different backgrounds (see below for the different types available). Calibration is as simple as moving in a number 8 motion. Check my pros, cons and image shot below for information.

    1. Free
    2. 6 different compasses to choose. Analog, antique, digital, gps, night,and simple digital
    3. 4 different backgrounds to choose from. None, mesh, sky and wood
    4. Calibrate is simple and effective
    5. Save a location
    6. Use the note (uses snaptics note app) function to save pictures, take notes and share on Facebook, etc.
    7. a complete slew of user options. includes noise filter, sensor type, sensor rate,display location, location text color, Buffer display, include altitude, include direction, include address, include location, include speed, notifications (vibrate) , distance and speed.
    8. Only 286kb's

    1. None that I can find. The app is complete and has never crashed on me.

    My review and experience with this app forces me to give it a 4.5 on the 1 - 5 scale
