Please the new maj is french!plus rectified


Cet app ne marche pas

Iphone 4 installation

I have installed in my Iphone 4 but unfortunately, it did not work.

does not yet work propperly

sorry, but the compass is spinning around and just if you walk very fast in just one direction the correct target is displayed. but in the moment you stand still it is lost. funktioniert noch nicht richtig. nur wenn man schnell in eine richtung geht, zeigt es für sekunden die richtige zielrichtung an. sobald man stehen bleibt, dreht der kompass wie wild im kreis herum.

Best compass yet

I have tried about 5 different compass apps. And this one is by far the best. Dont get the sun compasses. Get this one. But be sure to walk at a fast pass fir at least 20meters to get an accurate reading. So still not a great compass, but Im givin it a 5 because it is way better than the other ones.


Вещь супер, не хватает установки цели тыканием на карту. Please add the possibility to set target by clicking the map, on the go or other easy way to set target where the user has not been.

Bogus app

Hay so where is it? I downloaded it, but nowhere on my phone. After reading mixed reviews Im inclined to agree with the bad reviews. You guys need to fix this app before publishing it. Wasting everyones time.

Nice visuals, very low functionality

After seeing this on the itchy commercial, I thought Id take a look. Fifteen minutes after purchasing, I doubt Ill attempt to use it again unless theres a major update to functionality. The UI is very nice, but I expected the compass to actually function. It doesnt, and in fact it isnt even close. In Live Compass mode, I walked in a straight line as instructed, and the compass wheel begin to spin. Unfortunately, where it landed was wrong, multiple times. I have the 3G iPhone and allowed Compass Go to use my location settings. The map portion located me perfectly, so both the GPS in the phone & Compass Gos capacity to open a map using the coordinates are both working as expected. My review is meant to elicit an update, ideally, or at least some detailed instructions from the developer on how he is able to make this function as a compass. If theres a trick, please share it. Thanks.

Hardware limitations

All of you people giving bad reviews need to realize that there is nothing in the device that allows you to detect magnetism, you cannot create an app that can magically make that happen, if you want your heading without moving you use the sun. If you want a magnetic compas, wait for os 3.0 to come out, then someone will be able to create one that attatches to the phone.

So far its GREAT!

I bought this App mainly because of the compass that I saw moving on the Apple commercial. I sometimes drive around areas that I am not too familiar with, and while driving, I get all confused if I am going north, south, east or west. I have already driven the wrong way for a few miles and thats really frustrating. Anyway... so I bought this App and at first, was a bit upset (with a good outcome later), because of course, I turn the Compass on (and the Location On too) while I am at home, sitting on the sofa, and the compass was not pointing North where I knew North was!!!! So I walk around the house and its still not pointing right. I was quite upset. So I emailed tech support and received a sweet and fast response. He said that I really had to be moving, as in walking further (instead of just going to the kitchen and the backyard), or in the car driving. The next day, I go run some errands. And while driving, I turned Compass Go on and voilá!!! It worked perfectly and accurately!!! So Im happy now!! The only reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5, is because I have not yet tested all the features, like setting the Target, like a parked car... (and I dont hike, so I wont need it to find my way back in the woods). But Im sure it will be put into good use next time I visit the Sawgrass Mills Mall near my house which is a huge mile-long Mall, and you often walk around and forget which entrance of the Mall you came in and then cant remember your way back. Ill post another review once I try that. Thanks again for the great App!

Not that good...:(

sorry to dissapoint, but be careful with this one. it doesnt always work...and it not a "basic" compass. i think with a few tweaks and updates, it might get there but right now not even worth it.


Im quite satisfied, if you people would actualy read and comprehend how to use it, you would see that this is a useful and exelent app.

dont buy, it does not work as a compass

perhaps with a magnetometer in 3.0?

Compass Go

Crummy. Should be free and even then its useless on an iphone.

Sounded cool

I was disappointed when I discovered that even though I had an iPod touch, this application would not load, because it said it was not compatible with my iPod. I would like to find out how to get it to work or get my money back.


Best word I could think of to describe it while keeping it clean at the same time :) This would not even be a good free app.

Dont buy unless you want to be ripped off!!!

Will not work on my ipod touch. I tried 3 times to instaull and reinstaull, and still no compass.Tried twice to email them but my emails get bounced back to me, so ZERO STARS as far as Im concered. Wish I had read the reviews first which I usualy do :(. Shame on Apple for using this in a T.V. ad.



Waste of money.

This app does not work with ipod II, dont waste your money !!

Read the instructions

I bought this app even after reading the many negative reviews. I had this feeling that Apple wouldnt have included it in their commercial without checking it out and deciding that it was worth it. So I was willing to take the chance. After reading the instructions, I found that this app worked perfectly and exactly as described; in fact it was pretty cool and useful. Folks, this is not a magnetic compass. You cant just hold it and have it point north. It is a GPS tracking device. You must move, as they suggest in a straight line, and then it quickly picks up your location and gives you loads of useful information. Hats off to the developer for developing a very cool app; and my condolences for having to put up with dork reviewers who feel reading instructions is beneath them.
