Commander Compass - App Review



THE Maps App which comes bundled with your iOS device and Google Maps are very good for helping you find places, especially where there are road names involved but, for the free spirit, a compass is 'de rigueur'.

This App provides a stunning compass.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The top left corner of the screen shows the date and time, together with a heading.

The top right shows your current location, as well as altitude.

The settings allow a multitude of variations to the display, including a 'car mode' which, instead of displaying the heading shows you your course (and speed) instead of azimuth; very useful.

To change the colour of the On Screen Display just slide a finger across the screen to scroll through a variety of colours. If you slide a finger diagonally across the screen the outer ring of the compass is highlighted. Sliding upwards will alter the screen background.

The centre displays an analogue-looking compass as well as inclination.

Cost
The App Costs $4.

Indispensability
If you need a compass and you have an iOS device then, this is much less expensive that a 'genuine' compass.

Dependability
In testing, the information provided seemed accurate.

Security
The App needs access to your location... you could have guessed that.

Access to your photos is optional.

ACIDS Test Rating:

A truly beautiful and accurate rendition of the ubiquitous compass.
