Here's a neat compass app for your Windows Phone. Compass VO is a mango app that uses your internal digital compass as well as your Windows Phone camera to guide you around the great outdoors.
The compass display has multiple themes that include:
- Cardinal Rose
- Metro Graphic
In addition to multiple themes you can tap into your Windows Phone camera to take a photo of your map and use it as the background to the compass display. With the multiple themes and camera integration, Compass VO is a nice compass app for your Windows Phone. The only issue I encountered while testing out the app is calibrating your compass.
When you run Compass VO, you will be prompted to calibrate your Windows Phone compass by holding the phone in front of you and moving it in a Figure-8 pattern. Sometimes calibration kicks in after the first lap while other times your arm just about falls out of socket trying to achieve calibration.
All in all, if you're looking for a compass app for your Windows Phone Compass VO is worth a try. It's a free Mango application and you can download it here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
