    Hello All

    I have downloaded Sky map and SkEye astronomy apps, neither work on my new Samsung A10 phone.

    Sky map tells me that a built in compass and an accelerometer are needed and one is missing.

    I do not know what this means, please help.
    Regards

    The Samsung A10 doesn't have a magnetometer(compass) sensor in it, that those apps require, basically to detect which way North is
