Kills your battery
The title of the program Compass speaks for itself, and it's a really great compass that won't let you get lost, no matter where you are. In our humble opinion, this application can safely claim to be the best of its kind - not only among its analogues for Windows Phone, but in general on the market of applications for all the mobile devices.
What, in your opinion, is the work of any compass and how it is used by travelers, mushroom pickers, hunters and fans of outdoor activities? That's right - your compass indicates the direction of movement relative to the north, so you know where to head at the beginning of your trip and where you need to go to get back. However, as it turned out, the north is a somewhat distensible concept and there are in fact two of them - true and magnetic, but if you do not intend to travel by sea or ocean without a GPS-navigator, it does not matter for you at all.

Differences from analogues

So, imagine that you went to a forest to pick up mushrooms. You stood on the road to the forest, remembered the direction of the entrance to the forest, and pointed to yourself in what direction you would need to move in order to get to the road. In fact, everything's right and, after wandering through the woods, you really will get out to the road, but where exactly (to the right or left) will be a mystery to you until the end of the trip. So, this application will take you exactly to the point from which you came to the forest, and no meter to the side.

Navigation features

It's all thanks to the Bing maps integrated in the application which you can simply put a translucent image of the compass upon. At that, the compass is fixed as it is positioned correctly on the map, and you will see the movement of a peculiar look-out angle from you. It's left to wait for the GPS to pinpoint your location, and you will be able to go back on the route that you choose on the basis of the data obtained.
That is, you can see in real-time your location and the direction of moving, but not the direction in which you should move. See the difference? While with a conventional compass, a route has to be adjusted, depending on which way you have crabbed, and yet you could not get it to the right place.

Resume

In general, the program is truly specific and, of course, there is a number of people that will never find it helpful. However, if you enjoy outdoor activities, this is exactly what you need. In the setting of the compass, you can enable/disable the maps displaying, keep the map north up, turn on/off the location search, and change the design theme of the compass. The application interface is very simple and easy to use. The program is free and has no advertisements.

Well it Mar 2015 and you still can not get this app to work on the 635.  What is the problem?
Pierre
Device does not support compass. Why do you keep that app on the catalogue of available apps for Nokia 630?
Vlad Popa
Hello,
We are sorry to hear about your trouble.
Our compatibility checker uses a few loose parameters to see if the device is compatible, it is impossible for us to indicate with 100% accuracy for every single device available.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.
