Simply North - App Review

Where am I?

This App enables you to very get your co-ordinates and altitude.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Here, unashamedly, are the initial instructions given by the developer; these cover the basic operation:

Tap on the North Icon to switch between true (red) and magnetic (blue) North.

Tap on the co-ordinates to copy location and course to clipboard.

Swipe left to convert the location co-ordinate between the three basic forms (DMS, MinDec, and DegDec) - the App is worth having for this alone (how many times have you been given co-ordinates in one format and had to enter them into a GPS in a different format).

Swipe right to display your actual altitude and speed.

Swipe down or tap on BusyBytes Icon to open the About Box.

The App Costs a nominal $1.

This App is useful as a compass and for determining your location and altitude.

It is important to ensure that you have enabled Location in Settings.

The App is as good as the geolocation of your iOS device.

There are no apparent issues as this is a standalone App.

The App is self-contained, so no concerns on this front.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Beautiful, usable compass
