App Filter: Best Compass App for iPhone

Spyglass iPhone app

If you've come here looking for the best compass app for iPhone, you probably already know the built-in compass app isn't all that great. It will most certainly tell you which direction you're facing and it can switch between true north and magnetic north, but you're not going to get much else out of it. If you're looking for something a little more powerful, allow us to recommend Spyglass. Spyglass is of the jack-of-all-trades school of compass apps. It gives you the direction in every way it can, and it does so very, very well—assuming you have a device with a magnetometer equipped. Those include the 4th generation iPod Touch 4, the iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4s, and all the current iPad models. Assuming you have one of those devices, … [Read more...]

Others throw out page after page of in-depth data—good for the expert, but if you just want to know the weather it can get to be a bit much. So we set out to find an app that provides the best of both worlds: attractive and user-friendly, with deeper information available just under the surface. We wanted to find the best … [Read more...]
