Very nice looking, but unsure about accuracy

The graphics are undoubtedly beautiful, but I'm unsure about the accuracy. I placed first an iPhone 4 (with its built-in compass app) and my iPad 2 (with this app) in the same place in one room (one at a time so as not to cause interference). The readings seemed to differ by about 6° (phone would read 355°/8°, pad would read 350°/2°) in either mode (magnetic/true). But that may be because the *iPhone*'s app is inaccurate. I can't tell. In any case it would definitely appear to be in the general vicinity of the exact direction.

It's a still image of a compass, nothing more.

The compass does not move at all, no matter where I take it, how hard I shake it, or how many times I force close and open it. There is no difference between magnetic and geographic North because the image doesn't do anything. It's a photograph, not a movie, and certainly not a compass. There is neither latitude nor longitude written anywhere on this photo.

If everyone reviewing this app had my experience with it, it would have solid 1 star ratings; I get that, but that doesn't alter the fact that for my new iPad Air 2, this app is taking up space and giving absolutely nothing back.

Is it a bug? I don't know. It just doesn't work,...at all!

The best I've found

I deleted my other paid compass apps after I downloaded this one. The others just had too much information, more than I wanted. I needed a simple, easy to understand compass and this one fits my need perfectly.
