3D Sailing Compass App Description

The 3D compass (or half-sphere compass/nautical compass) is just like what you find on a beautiful yacht or airplane. Unlike other compasses you can view it in any orientation, not just when it lays flat. With this stunning app pretend you are sailing the high seas or flying high above the alps to find your direction. Take a look at the screen shots to see what it looks like from above or holding straight up. Keywords: compass , boat compass , ball compass , dome compass, half-sphere compass, airplane compass

3D Sailing Compass App Reviews

  • Not bad

    By Dent De Leon
    But the compass moves in a jittery fashion, rather than smoothly on my iPhone 4 with iOS 5. Good looking display. 5 stars if the jitters are fixed. If you are looking for a 3D gimbal compass, try Marine Compass.
  • Compas

    By Neil Massoud
    Would not buy this difficult to use
  • Update for Retina Display

    By TBluntz
    Needs Retina display and gyro support for iPhone4.
  • Bad update

    By christophelus
    Crashes with new update when trying to change skin.
  • Not Bad but Name to Long

    By azuwhr
    Needs more, maybe different colors to choose from or background options. Also if the developer could fix the icon so it can say a word instead of 2 half words. Nice start on it I just hope to see more. Ideas - Compass - N Compass - Nautical - NCA ( A for app) - skins or colors - make the icon background black so all you see is the compass as the icon
  • Nice look, though no more functional than the stock iPhone compass (maybe less).

    As a sailor, I appreciate the appearance of this compass interface -- graphically, it's well-executed, and it has a more intuitive look when you're holding the iPhone vertically. But bear in mind that all you get with this app is a different look. Horizontal or vertical, it gives you exactly the same the compass reading you'll get the from the compass app that was included with the iPhone -- and the stock compass also gives you handy digital bearing readout (which this one doesn't).
  • Don't Get Too Excited...

    By Minder338
    Unless you have a 3G iPhone, as your purchase and download will work fine, but the app is only campatable with the newest iPhone.
  • Fun app

    By Miked205
    It's worth it in my opinion
  • Fun, but dangerous

    By Asktog
    This app shares the same tragic flaw as the Apple compass: There is no visual indication as to whether the thing is pointing to true north or magnetic north. Either Apple or these guys are going to get someone killed. This app goes Apple one step worse: It demands to use your GPS coordinates even when you are using magnetic north, thereby seemingly indicating you are, in fact, using true north when you're not. Cute but deadly.
  • Pretty good but not perfect

    By BillTheEditor
    This app needs a way to correct for magnetic variation (declination). Could use gps to do this automatically (based on your location).
