Smart Compass is in the 3rd set of the Smart Tools collection.
This compass is a tool to search bearings(azimuth) using the built-in magnetic sensors. It has 3 significant features.
1. Although you may turn the phone into portrait or landscape mode, the heading is fixed.
2. The Camera's view is used for reality.
3. Metal Detector(magnetic field) is included to verify the sensors.
The compass app depends on the performance of your device EXACTLY. If it works perfectly, this means your sensors are perfect, too.
If it is inaccurate, please check that you aren't being affected by a magnetic field and the sensors become weakened by age. In order to calibrate your device, there are several options.
* Pro version added features:
- Sending GPS information via SMS and Email
- Full metal detector
- True north
- Vertical line for Lensatic Compass
- Various Coordinate Types (UTM)
- Military Coordinate (MGRS, mil unit)
- No ads, No connection

For more information, see the manual, Youtube video and the blog. Thank you.

On Samsung Galaxy S II the direction changes 45 degrees if you go from holding the phone up (like a camera) to flat looking down at the screen.

Ok, but drains battery fast. Full charge to 20% in 3 hours unless you buy full version. Not accurate enough to spend money on.

The instructions for calibrating the compass were just what I need to get it working on my nexus s. It was almost useless before I knew about that.
