Oh my …. something really incredible just happened. My #Compass moved to the first place in the English Google Play ranking for the search word “compass” and surpassed the really popular Smart Compass from Smart Tools. From hundreds of #compass apps maybe more than thousand, mine is on the first place. I don’t know for how long, but i enjoy every second of it 😉
IMPROVED: Big performance and memory optimization. The compass is now more efficient and uses less memory. This should result
in a more fluent compass arrow.
FIXED: Fixed a problem with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S4 with Android 4.3. This devices have a software bug
inside the sensor classes. I have implemented a workaround for this devices that solves the problem.
FIXED: Fixed a problem with the time measuring classes that caused the app to crash at startup.
FIXED: Fixed a problem that prevented the links for the references of resources used in this app to work.
FIXED: The old compass window was not closed after rotating the device resulting in a OutOfMemoryException after some
IMPROVED: Changed the labels for the sensor precision in the settings. They are now easy understandable and indicate which one
uses more energy.
Compass got featured on the “Must Have” category on Google Play! Wooowwww. I have a big smile on my face right now, so big that the
light reflects on my teeth and illuminates the whole room. You could see my smile even from the moon. Niceeeeeee! That is so
awesome. Thank you all for downloading this wonderful app!

Another try to fix the problem with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S4. This devices have software bug
inside the sensor classes. I have implemented a workarround for this devices that should solve the problem. But i
cannot test it, because i don’t have this devices at home. Please send me a bug report with the support dialog if this
compass is working or not working your Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
The last version didn’t fix the problem with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S4. This version contains
changes to get more information when the problem occurs. It does not catch the error, but will show a “Force Close”
dialog. Please send the bug report if this happens. This way i will receive the new bug report information i need and
can track it down bit further.
