Simply North a powerful compass with a gorgeous design that feels like a work of art

Simply North is a powerful compass with a gorgeous design that feels like a work of art.

Besides pointing to the true or magnetic north, Simply North also displays your current location, altitude and speed. This makes it the perfect companion for passionate hikers!

With the last update we have enriched the app with an elegant new flat look, which keeps the user interface absolutely clean and intuitive.
We have worked so many nights to make it pixel perfect and we hope that you love the result!

More features:
- simple user interface
- haptic feedback
- no ads or banners
- tap on the coordinates to copy location + course to clipboard
- built with love, like the original Apple compass
- a universal app for both iPad and iPhone
- dark / light mode with 3 different skins
- and last but not least: retina graphics for all devices!

ATTENTION: Does not work on iPod touch

Bangkok or Europe?

I frequently use the app and it points me in the right direction. However, when I showed it to my husband, he noticed that the GPS coordinates are way off, placing us in Europe, not Thailand. I can use other apps for GPS, but you should remove the GPS coordinates if they are not right.

Love The App

I've had this app for quite some time & love it. I keep a log & need to record my latitude & longitude. A simple touch of the latitude & longitude on the app & it copies it to the clipboard so I can paste it into my word processor. Unfortunately since I recently updated both my iPhone6 & my iPad Air to the new IOS 10.0.2, the app just crashes when I touch the latitude & longitude. Now I must write it down on paper & type it into my word processor.

Works great on my iPhone 6s Plus

This app is simple to use and it works great on my iPhone 6s Plus. I have not experienced any crashes or issues. I am running iOS 11, the latest version at the time of this review.

The app shows the latitude and longitude. I can choose between true north or magnetic north.

A good utility app to have in my pocket. No ads and no bloatware. Thank you!
