Your North Star
When you're travelling, it's not always easy to know if you're heading down the right path. However, with the Compass app, you can use its features to guide you to your destination. It's the compass of the 21st century.
Online or offline, the app is ready to guide you in your travels.
People resort to using the compass because it’s efficient. Simple compass apps help simplify navigation. It’s always a good idea to have one around you because you’ll never know when you’re going to need one.
This compass app works using your device’s magnetometer. It means that you can use this app even if you don’t have an internet connection or data left. This makes this ideal for traveling because you can use it anytime as long as you have battery power. You will only need your phone to arrive at your destination.
To keep it fun, the app offers 5 different themed backgrounds for your selection. You can match any mood you want. You can even give your app an outer space vibe or an elegant hardwood look.
With this app, leaving stones to remember trails will be a habit of the past.
Compass has a My Places tab you can use to save locations. This feature is handy when you want to explore an environment but want to make sure where important locations like a camping site or a river are. You can surely use this when you’re in the concrete jungle as well.
You just need to enter the details of the place such as name, category, and a phone number if necessary when bookmarking a place. To access the places you’ve pinned, you'll just go to the My Places folder on the upper right of the app.
There’s also a tab allotted for notes. However, the app will require you to install another app called Catch Notes to use this feature.
Where can you run this program?
If you use an Android, it’s your lucky day. You can install this Compass app from Catch to use it.
Is there a better alternative?
Good compass apps consume little battery power, which is why when looking for alternatives, you should look for ones with a dim interface. The Digital Field Compass app for Android has a simple interface that has none of the battery-consuming frills and fuss.
This app packs a lot of aesthetic value. It incorporates a fun element on an otherwise simple and unexciting tool.
