Does pretty much what it says

So, aside from actually being a compass, what does this app offer? Precious little. Nothing, in fact.
It’s the equivalent of the Compass app on the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 but sadly with far less polish and far less usefulness. Why? It judders terribly as the dial turns, while the numbers on the dial are so small, they are rendered useless.
In contrast, the iPhone app also displays precise degrees so can be used as a navigational aid – it also shows latitude and longitude courtesy of the phone’s GPS.
Sadly, aside from a vague notion of direction, the Bada app is a failure in comparision, it even judders from left to right slightly when it’s placed on a desk or in another static position as though it can’t quite make its mind up.
The rest of the Compass app screen looks well designed, with a fun Bada-themed graphic, but it seems that’s where the (low) budget has been spent, rather than making the app actually useful. Unfortunate, to say the least.
