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.

Compass is a free app that includes 5 basic compass types
• 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.

Now Compass offers premium compass themes with a simple in-app purchase. Choose from among our Urban Hiker, Space Cowboy, Sea Navigator and Special Ops themes, or buy all four for one low price.

Somehow it stays 90° off. Points east where north should be, even after calibrating. So it must be considered dangerous to be used in real life.
